  1. “Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 37 They were startled and terrified, and thought that they were seeing a ghost.” Luke 24:36-37

    Thank you for choosing this painting to bring to life the words of the Gospel. I especially like that all 11 have a hand raised as if to ward off the ghost.
