Die Bibel in Bildern, Plate 219. Click on image to enlarge it.. Artist: Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld. Engraver: Z. Scheckel, inscribed lower right. Source:
And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. [Mark 16: 5-6; King James Bible]
Although the text of the Gospel of Mark describes the messenger only as a “young man,” the artist depicts him as an angel.
