Lazarus had been dead for four days when Christ miraculously called him back to life in response to the entreaties of Lazarus's devoted sisters, Mary and Martha. The sisters turn toward Christ as he gestures for their brother to emerge from his tomb. In the background, one of Christ's disciples, probably Peter, comes to the aid of the bewildered Lazarus, who is still wrapped in his burial shroud.
