Some Good Friday Art By James Tissot

There is a fairly large series of paintings by James Tissot called "The Life of Our Lord Jesus Christ". There are quite a few that relate to Good Friday. I am going to post here those paintings that relate  to the gospel readings from the Gospel of John for  Good Friday. I will try to post them in the order the scenes are spoken of in the gospel. But if I get them out of order, please keep in mind it is late, and I am not a spring chicken any longer. They actually are here in there original form if you'd like to see those instead. They begin with the second painting on row 8 of the page there.

I will post them as small here, and you can click each individual image to see the higher resolution full sized image.
