John 11 :23- 25 “Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”
Story Behind the Art:
This painting is a depiction of the Savior raising Lazarus from the dead. The artist wanted to depict the loving relationship between Mary, Martha, and the Savior as He brings Lazarus to life. There is a mixture of amazement and gratitude as Martha holds Lazarus, and Mary looks on. The Savior holds a light in the darkness representing the light and hope that He brings to mankind.
