This window was a gift from Jane Keppel Marsilje in memory of
(left) The Prophet Jeremiah has his hand
over his heart, showing submission. The lightning to the
left of his head illustrates the storminess of his reign,
while the sun to the right portrays God’s calm and
forgiveness. Next to his right foot is his crown with three
points broken off and under his left foot is an open scroll
with the Hebrew letters for “Lamentations.” Above
the scroll is a broken bottle, which is typified in the
19th chapter of Jeremiah as Jerusalem’s destruction.
(right) The Apostle Matthew is carrying an open scroll and quill. His facial
expression has a very stern and worried appearance, perhaps attempting to
portray his demeanor as a tax collector.
The symbols, from left to right, are The Tree of the Knowledge
of Good and Evil, The Ten Commandments, and The Harp.
