The Three Youths in the Fiery Furnace

A story from the Old Testament. The Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar set up a large golden idol and ordered the Jews in exile to worship it. Three young men refused to kneel before the strange god. The king had them cast into the fire, but they were protected by their God and survived the flames. Converted by this miracle, Nebuchadnezzar afterwards worshipped the God of Israel. In the foreground of this painting the young men are being bound. The subject of this work is rather appropriate, since it was commissioned by the bakers’ guild of Haarlem.
