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...

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...

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...

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.

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.

After the disciples dine together, the company passes into another chamber, the artist notes, where Jesus washes the feet of his followers, an act of selflessness and humility that presages his later sacrifice for the sins of mankind. Although Peter, sitting at center with his hands at his head, protests his unworthiness, Jesus insists on the physical and spiritual necessity of the cleansing act. Hinting at his knowledge of his future betrayal by Judas, by saying that not all of his apostles...

Brought before a tribunal presided over by the chief priest Caiaphas, Jesus, bound in chains but standing with dignified calm, hears many give testimony against him, though none can agree on a charge or crime, much to the frustration of the priests. Tissot visually conveys the accumulation of these accusations by filling the gallery at left with a frenzied crowd, each person raising his hand to be heard by the judges, who occupy an unseen but elevated dais at the top of the stairs to the right....

Following the Last Supper, Jesus and the apostles retreat to Gethsemane (an olive grove) on the Mount of Olives. While his disciples rest, Christ prays alone, asking God if it is possible to let his sufferings pass him by, yet reaffirming his commitment to submit to God’s will. Luke writes that an angel comes to strengthen him, though in his anguish Jesus sweats blood, a graphic detail that, unusually, Tissot omits. While Luke’s account says that Christ receives comfort from the angel,...

Following the scourging, or flagellation, the Roman soldiers clothe Christ in a scarlet cloak, thus mocking his claims to royalty. Tissot reminds his readers of the color’s associations in Jewish tradition, noting that wearing this color marks Jesus as the bearer of humanity’s sins. Tissot discusses in great detail the construction of the crown of thorns shown here, the base of which, he claims, was formed by a band of rushes and could still be seen at the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris...
