6/21/18 – Chora Church

Chora Church contains one of the most spectacular frescoes ever painted – Anastasis. It is a depiction of Jesus pulling Adam and Eve out of their respective sarcophagus. Jesus is shown to bring all of us – even those who think they come from Adam and Eve – out of a sense of death into resurrection. All are led upwards by the victory of Jesus over death and the grave.
