Scenes from the Passion of Christ

Scenes from the Passion of Christ by Hans Memling

This work by a fifteenth-century artist, now in a Turin gallery, combines most of the familiar scenes from the Passion story into a single painting. The story of Jesus’ last hours begins in the top left corner with his entry into Jerusalem, then winds its way through town into the Garden of Gethsemane (bottom left). In the middle we see Jesus brought before Pilate and the scourging, and then we leave the city and end with the Crucifixion on the mount behind.

But Memling didn’t stop there, adding Christ’s resurrection and three of his appearances to the many witnesses that his death wasn’t the end that his enemies had expected, but that he had indeed risen from the dead.

Better still, join us for our services this month, when we will be experiencing all the highs and lows of Christ’s final days on earth, from the triumphant entry into Jerusalem, through the agony of betrayal and crucifixion, to the glories of Easter morning.
