Description: An oil painting of a famous Israeli garden visited by many every year. It depicts the Garden Tomb at Gethsemane.
Artist Comments: This painting of a rock-cut tomb situated in the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem, and is one of my personal favorites. This famous Israeli location is believed by many Christians to be the burial and resurrection place of Jesus Christ after His crucifixion at Golgotha, the place of the skull. Being a devout Christian, this particular painting has a lot of personal meaning for me. It is one of two I painted of this famous travel place. The other painting is called The Garden Tomb at Sunset.
The Burial and Resurrection of Jesus the Christ
“As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.” Matthew 27:57-60
“He is not here: for He is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:6
The Garden Tomb is part of the Holy Lands series.
