The Moorish Kitchen Maid

Recently, while reading Steve Taylor's, The Out of Bounds Church: Learning to Create a Community of Faith in a Culture of Change, I stumbled across a reference to "The Moorish Kitchen Maid", a painting by the great 17th Century Spanish artist, Diego Velazquez.

I found Taylor's description fascinating, so decided to search it out.

The young lady, eavesdropping on Jesus and his two companions as they converse over dinner at Emmaus  (see Luke 24:13-32), is startled as she realizes the identity of their house guest.  The other two haven't figured it out yet.
