This artwork by le Sueur shows Jesus Christ performing a miracle during His public life and raising a young man from the dead, who was the only son of a widow.
"Whom when the Lord had seen, being moved with mercy towards her, he said to her: Weep not. And he came near and touched the bier. And they that carried it, stood still. And he said: Young man, I say to thee, arise. And he that was dead, sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother." – Luke 7:13-15
