Previous StationNext Station

James Jacques Tissot (French painter and illustrator, 1836-1902), "Jesus Stripped of His Clothing (Jésus dépouillé des ses vêtements)" (1884-1896), Opaque watercolor over graphite on gray wove paper, 
23.5 x 19.2 cm, Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY.
John 19:23-24

"23 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.

24 "Let's not tear it," they said to one another. "Let's decide by lot who will get it."

 This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled which said,

"They divided my garments among them
and cast lots for my clothing."*

So this is what the soldiers did."

* Quoting Psalm 22:18
