The Resurrection
But the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said!" - Matthew 28:5-6 (ESV)
About this creation
If you have not yet seen my Crucifixion, I would recommend doing so before viewing this post. But following on the heels of his brutal death by Roman execution, a man named Joseph of Arimathea offered to let Jesus be buried in his brand new tomb. Needing to get him sealed away before the onset of the Sabbath, they took Joseph up on the offer and buried him. After the sabbath had ended, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices.

But of course, the Romans did not celebrate the sabbath. And the Jewish leaders wanted Pontius Pilate to guard the tomb so that Jesus' body would not be stolen and therefore a resurrection be faked. So almost 100 Roman soldiers were stationed outside the tomb to guard the body.

Then on Sunday morning, the three women went to the tomb, expecting to be met with the confrontation of a squad of Roman troops and a 2 ton stone to move. But all the Roman troops were lying down, as if dead, and the stone had been rolled away. And an angel of the lord stood there, proclaiming that Christ had risen!

Happy Easter!

Enjoy!



The full bignette. The tomb is on the left and the stone is gone.


From left to right: Mary Magdalene, Salome, and Mary mother of James. They have bought precious spices but find the romans unconscious and the stone removed.


The vignette from the top.


This is a rocky outcropping and a young willow sapling. A soldier who was reclining there lies prostrate after the shock of Christ's resurrection.


From the left side, the tomb is cutaway so you can see inside. This is with the tomb sealed.


The angel of God, proclaiming Christ's resurrection.


Mary Magdalene couldn't beleive what she heard, and stayed at the garden, weeping. But then Jesus appeared to her, coming up and consoling her; proving he had risen fom the dead.


Everything was flung at Jesus. He had been whipped, endured a sleepless night, crucified and locked in a tomb for 3 days. But he conquered the tomb!


He conquered death!


He conquered even the Roman supremacy, by sybolically knocking out a full squad of soldiers into a dazed, dead-like state.


The other soldiers...

Another officer...


Finally all the Romans.


And the women.


For the artistic photo, please reference the awesome top shot; depicting the glory of Christ bursting through the tomb, conquering death so that we might be able to spend eternity with our Heavenly Father!

Praise be to God!

Happy Easter!

He is risen!

Very nice Christopher! This especially great right now, because Easter is just around the corner! But despite the present time, it is always good to be reminded of the ultimate gift: Jesus' death and resurrection for our sins!

Quoting Michael Kringe Excellent main picture, Chris! Where did you get those fantastic Roman helmets? Are they from Bricklink?
They are the roman helms from BrickForge. They are really nifty. I bought two of them plus two gladii (Roman swords) with the intention of using them for this scene. So although they look like the LEGO spartan helmets they are the custom BF ones. Thanks for your comment!
