This fresco above is called Anástasis in Greek, from Chora Church in Istanbul, Turkey. In love, Jesus pursued all who died before him, pulling Adam and Eve from their graves, because he was victorious over sin and death on our behalf. This event, the “Holy Saturday” between Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, is referenced in 1 Peter 3:18 – 20; 4:6, Ephesians 4:9, and early creeds, and was portrayed in this way starting around the 6th century.
