Scripture Reference:

Description: Above the head of the crucified Jesus is the inscription “INRI,” which abbreviates the title that Pilate posted on the cross, “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.” At the base, a man struggles to hold on to the cross as temptations from the world assault him. The monogram of the artist, Christoffel van Sichem (1546-1624), appears on the cross to the right.
