Sabado de Gloria...Lamentation and Entombment

Descent from the Cross - Rembrandt - 1634



Descendimiento de la Cruz - Pedro Machuca - 1547



Paso del Descendimiento - Procesiones de Calahorra



And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God”.

Matthew 27, 51-54, KJV

En la calle la Amargura
Hallé a una mujer de luto;
Le pregunté "¿quién s'ha muerto?"
Y me dijo: "el que hizo el mundo"

(Saeta Popular)



Cristo de la Redencion - Procesiones de Granada


Cuando cayó la noche, llegó un hombre rico, de Arimatea, llamado José, que también había sido discípulo de Jesús.

Este fue a Pilato y pidió el cuerpo de Jesús. Entonces Pilato mandó que se le diera el cuerpo.
 
Mateo 27, 57-58, RV 1995



Pieta - William A. Bouguereau - 1876


He aquí helados, cristalinos,
sobre el virginal regazo,
muertos ya para el abrazo,
aquellos miembros divinos.
Huyeron los asesinos.
Qué soledad sin colores.
Oh, Madre mía, no llores.
Cómo lloraba María.
La llaman desde aquel día
la Virgen de los Dolores.

¿Quién fue el escultor que pudo
dar morbidez al marfil?
¿Quién apuró su buril
en el prodigio desnudo?
Yo, Madre mía, fui el rudo
artífice, fui el profano
que modelé con mi mano
ese triunfo de la muerte
sobre el cual tu piedad vierte
cálidas perlas en vano.

Gerardo Diego




Pietà - Michelangelo - 1499


Lamentation of Christ - Rubens - 1611


And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.

Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.

John 19, 39-41, KJV

Y tomando José el cuerpo, lo envolvió en una sábana limpia,
y lo puso en su sepulcro nuevo, que había labrado en la peña; y después de hacer rodar una gran piedra a la entrada del sepulcro, se fue.

Mateo 27, 59-60, RV60



Cristo Yacente - Daniel del Valle

The Entombment of Christ - Badalocchio - 1610



And the next day, which followed the day of preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees came together to Pilate,
Saying: Sir, we have remembered, that that seducer said, while he was yet alive: After three days I will rise again.

Command therefore the sepulchre to be guarded until the third day: lest perhaps his disciples come and steal him away, and say to the people: He is risen from the dead; and the last error shall be worse than the first.

Pilate saith to them: You have a guard; go, guard it as you know.
And they departing, made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting guards.

Matthew 27, 62-66, Douay-Rheims 1899
