Jesus Raises the Son of the Widow of Nain
“Now when he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, there was carried out one that was dead, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came nigh and touched the bier: and the bearers stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.” Luke 7:12-14 ASV
Illustration of Jesus touching the hand of the dead son of a widow at Nain. The young man is lying in a coffin with his mother and family around him as they carry him through the streets. Two men are kneeling at the foot of the coffin, lowering it to the ground. Jesus holds the hand of the dead man. The town walls frame the image.
