Description
From artist Ben Green:

I bring you my vision of 'Testament' a biblical themed deck of cards.

The classic deck retains the caveat, each deck bears the seal; "On opening this deck, I agree to the condition of sale that the cards may not be used for gambling purposes".

This is an artistic deck for the love of cards and the art from the bible, not for a gambling aid. Gambling is considered a sin among Christians and many other religions, the concept of using the images of saints and biblical characters - and one could say double so of the family of Jesus and Abraham - in order to act out such a sin could be considered blasphemous and insulting to the religion.

This was a significant consideration whilst building this deck, but my mind was settled when conducting my research; I found the Catholic Church of England & Wales themselves use the image of Jesus as the King of Hearts and using cards to help the youth to reflect on their relationships.

Ethnicity was another consideration, and has been discussed in some length with religious and scholarly experts. I decided to stay in line with traditional western interpretations of the Bible characters as I have based my cards on my own experiences of the Bible.

Some of the best art in the world is inspired by, or directly taken from the bible, and whilst this deck may not be up there with the masters, I hereby present you with my deck: Testament, a classic styled deck for the collector. For the love of cards and art of the bible.
