Post I think I decided 
The three Jews in the Babylonian furnace makes such a great visual connection (i.e. "three of fire"), but what does it have to do with the meaning of the Three of Wands? Meaning-wise, it would be better for Strength, or some such. I think I was just taken by the cliché of it. But Jesus & co. on the road makes a much better correlation with what I know about the Three of Wands.

I agree with you. The image of the people on the road is very open (the future lies ahead) while the image of the furnace makes one think of a big challenge, almost not to overcome. Berthe

Jesus et al on the road, of the two, makes more sense to me given the meaning of the card. Neither has the element of reaping the results of prior efforts, achievements. In the Rider Waite Smith version, the ships can be seen either as going out which would be consistent with the Jesus et al on the road or as coming in which is how I usually see this card based on a numerological flavoring to my understanding of the card.
