The Resurrection of Lazarus — Tissot


Collections: Jesus Christ

Category: Miracles-Life

This artwork by Tissot depicts one of the miracles of Jesus: raising Lazarus from the dead. We see Lazarus, a good friend of Christ, in the lower right of the image coming forth from his grave. Our Lord, in the top left of the picture, calls loudly for Lazarus to come out of his grave.

"They took therefore the stone away. And Jesus lifting up his eyes said: Father, I give thee thanks that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always; but because of the people who stand about have I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. When he had said these things, he cried with a loud voice: Lazarus, come forth. And presently he that had been dead came forth, bound feet and hands with winding bands; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said to them: Loose him, and let him go. Many therefore of the Jews, who were come to Mary and Martha, and had seen the things that Jesus did, believed in him." — John 11:41-45
