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.

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...

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.

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...

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...

Paying his usual rigorous attention to researching the settings for his interpretation of the narrative, Tissot places the episode of Jesus’ birth in one of the caves in the mountains in and around Bethlehem, a departure from visual tradition, which often locates the Nativity in a stable. Unable to find rooms in the town, Mary and Joseph take shelter here. In his commentary, Tissot explains the presence of animals who gaze upon the newborn Jesus by noting that shepherds often used these caves...

Mary Magdalene, meeting the resurrected Christ, falls to the ground “thinking to resume her old place at the feet of Jesus and to embrace them,” as Tissot notes. While Christ had encouraged the Magdalene’s ministrations in an earlier scene, The Ointment of the Magdalene , now he counsels caution, warning, “Touch me not”; the time for such familiarity has passed. The Magdalene’s prostrate body and full, flowing hair provide a clear visual cross-reference, effectively linking the two...

In the third temptation, the devil carries a passive Jesus up to a high pinnacle of the Temple, where he is challenged to jump and prove his protection by God’s angels. However, Jesus steadfastly retains his faith and refuses to test God. This image demonstrates bravura watercolor technique, contrasting the transparency of the devil’s horned, clawed, and winged body with the solid masonry of the Temple. Moreover, as a matter of storytelling skill, note that this bird’s-eye view looks down...

Already weak from beatings and the labor of carrying his heavy cross, Jesus falls for a second time. A man named Simon of Cyrene, a resident of North Africa, is pressed into service to help with the burden. Taking him roughly by the shoulders, the guards urge Simon, clothed in a short blue tunic, to carry the long central beam, as Jesus lies motionless on the cobbled street. Following the procession, a boy carries the title that will be affixed to the Cross. Spelled out in Hebrew, Greek, and...

Mary Magdalene kneels before Christ and anoints his feet, wiping away the excess oil with her hair, a gesture of deference and devotion. The disciples—especially Judas Iscariot, Tissot notes, in a commentary based on John’s account—are indignant at the gesture’s expense, asking could not this costly ointment be sold and its profits given to the poor? However, Jesus defends Mary’s prescience: “She did it,” he tells them, “for my burial.” Object metadata can change over time,...

As news of Jesus’ teachings and deeds spread, his followers grew in number. Without adequate provisions to feed them, Jesus gathers five loaves and two fishes from a young boy in this large company, and after giving thanks to God, distributes them, managing to feed all who are hungry. Tissot offers an expansive view of the scene, one so broad that it becomes difficult to distinguish Jesus himself, at the upper right. However, this compositional strategy emphasizes the magnitude of the miracle...

While crossing the Sea of Galilee in a ship during the night, Jesus and his disciples are overtaken by a storm. Tissot omits any sign of landfall, heightening the sense of danger in the rough, stormy sea. Awakened by his followers, who fear for their lives, Jesus quiets the tempest with a dramatic and dynamic gesture and rebukes his companions for their lack of faith. Tissot’s commentary connects this shipboard miracle with the miraculous draught of fishes, noting: “It was in the same boat,...
