The Earthquake on Mount Calvary — Tissot

This artwork by James Tissot depicts the earthquake that followed immediately after the death of Jesus Christ on the Cross. The soldiers and pharisees are fallen to the ground in terror. The sky is black and foreboding. "And Jesus again crying with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And behold the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top even to the bottom, and the earth quaked, and the rocks were rent." — Matthew 27:50-51
