“My Lord and my God!”_8th Station of the Resurrection by avonnhartung

Reproduction of original painting “My Lord and my God!” from the series of 14 Stations of the Resurrection, “Via Lucis” by avonnhartung. The cruciform frame shows the nail holes from the Crucifixion of Jesus the Christ. The doubting surrounding Doubting Thomas. Here we see once again the timidity and uncertainty of the belief of the apostles in this most miraculous reincarnation of Jesus. As Thomas timorously places his hand in the wound (even as the Lord steadies his hand), the other apostles to a man look on vicariously sharing a moment of wondrous curiosity even as they reinforce their own belief that this really is their Lord who they know died on the Roman cross.
