Description

This painting shows Jesus falling on the floor on the way to be crucified. A mounted Roman soldier orders Simon of Cyrene to help Jesus carry his cross. This scene is taken from the Gospels: “And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.” (Matthew 27:32.) “And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.” (Mark 15:21). Also pictured are Mary and the women of Jerusalem.
