Earthquake and Resurrection

Matthew 28:2-4; 1 Corinthians 15:4

The Bible does not tell us about the actual resurrection, but about the signs accompanying it. The stone is not removed to let Jesus out, but to show the empty tomb. Anyway, pictures of the resurrection represented by the links below, are mostly connected with the earthquake. This is the traditional way to treat the subject in art.
