Jesus Appears to the Apostles
Church of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, Ravenna
The mosaic merges two episodes from John 20. In verses 19-20, Jesus appears to ten disciples:
Now when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace be to you. And when he had said this, he shewed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord.Here we see the house with closed doors behind the principal scene and the disciples expressing their glad feelings with gestures of acclamation.
