Although Tissot gave exacting attention to archaeological detail, providing what he intended as historically accurate backdrops for the narrative of Christ’s life, he also pursued the mystical. At the pool known as the Piscina Probatica, the infirm gather around the edge of the water in the hope of being healed. According to John, an angel stirs the pool, activating its curative powers; the next person to step into the water would be delivered from affliction. Tissot’s image features two...

In Luke’s Gospel, the shepherds in the hills and valleys surrounding Bethlehem first learn of the miraculous event from an angel who announces the birth of the Savior. The accompanying angels joyously sing their praise of God and urge good will to men, a passage that gives its name to a well-known hymn, “Gloria in Excelsis Deo” (Glory to God in the Highest). In the text he wrote to accompany this image, Tissot explains the local practices for pasturage in the Middle East, noting that...

Having betrayed Jesus, Judas leads a party of armed guards who intend to arrest him. Judas has alerted the authorities that he will identify Jesus for them by kissing him. Here, standing on tiptoes, Judas reaches up to kiss him, an intimate gesture that further underscores the bitterness of the betrayal.

As time passed at Golgotha, the sky grew darker, frightening away many of the observers but permitting those in Jesus’ immediate circle, who had initially kept themselves at a safe distance, to approach, and even to touch his feet. Mary Magdalene hugs the cross. Jesus—facing away and hidden by the beams of the cross—acknowledges the sufferings of his mother, and seeing John standing nearby, he urges her to look to the apostle for comfort, saying, “Woman, behold thy son!” He also urges...

When Jesus heals a man with a withered hand on the Sabbath, he flouts rules against work and further upsets the devout. Although Jewish law permitted the saving of lives on the holy day, Jesus defies the rigid rules of the Sabbath by extending his help to a man afflicted but not threatened with death.

Jesus also appears to two of his disciples on the road to Emmaus. Not able to recognize him, they tell the seeming stranger of Christ’s death and his subsequent mysterious disappearance from his tomb. Though they had believed him to be the Messiah, they confess to doubts, as he “should have redeemed Israel,” as Luke recounts, or freed the Jews from the rule of the Romans. As they walk on toward their destination, the stranger instructs his companions on the ancient prophecies regarding...

Following the death of his friend Lazarus, Jesus goes to Bethany to comfort Martha and Mary Magdalene for a loss that he also felt keenly. Both women lament that Jesus was absent when Lazarus took ill, knowing that he would have prevented the death with his healing powers. Affected by the loss, Jesus weeps. Led to the darkened tomb of Lazarus, Jesus commands the removal of the stone covering the opening and, after a prayer to God, resurrects the dead man before witnesses who gasp in...

With this scene, Tissot continues to explore Mary’s role in the “Divine plan,” as the artist called the biblical narrative. Mary prays or “sings” her praise of God for giving her a part to play in humankind’s redemption. While The Annunciation underscored the Virgin’s humble station and modesty, here she stands with head and hands raised to the sky as she utters what Tissot characterizes as a “quiet, reverent, whispered expression of a spirit moved to its very depths.” Her...

According to John, while the Roman governor continues to find Jesus blameless, he accedes to pressure from the priests and decides to “chastise” him through scourging. Jesus is bound, defenseless, to a marble column and whipped before a crowded court as Pilate looks on from the palace loggia in the background. Christ’s tormentors perform a punishment most likely inflicted, Tissot tells his readers, with leather whips weighted with pieces of bone. Object metadata can change over time,...

In two short verses, Mark recounts the deal struck between Judas and the chief priests, who will give him money to betray Jesus. Here, Judas negotiates his fee (he is shown with his fingers raised). With his suspicious backward glance at the exchange between Judas and the priests, the unidentified foreground figure draws the viewer’s attention to the proceedings.

Exclaiming “Behold the man!,” Pilate shows the beaten and bloodied Christ to the crowds. The people gathered in the court below urge his execution, with pointed fingers raised in accusatory gestures. On the loggia before the assembled crowd, Pilate—convinced of Jesus’ innocence and impressed by his dignity, according to Tissot’s account—publicly washes his hands on the loggia before the square, symbolically distancing himself from the execution to follow.

Although Jesus took on several followers early in his ministry, in this painting he is shown formally ordaining twelve men to help spread his teachings. They are Peter, James Major, John, Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the Less, Thaddeus, Peter, and Judas Iscariot. Following the Gospel account, Tissot situates this event on a mountain, noting later that Jesus frequently withdrew to such elevated spots to be closer to God.
