Easter Art! - Resurrection of Lazarus

The Resurrection of Lazarus
Artist: Giovanni di Paolo
Location: Siena, Italy

The Resurrection of Jesus' friend Lazarus happened about a month and a half before Easter. But it is about Easter too because it strengthened Jesus' disciple before He traveled to Jerusalem and willingly gave His life for the salvation of the world.  I mean, what better way to get people to understand that Jesus will raise Himself from the dead than to raise his good friend Lazarus? Pretty cool I'd say! 

Jesus said, "Lazarus, come forth!" (John  11:43) and Lazarus - who had been dead for four days - did!!
