"Do not cling to me!"



This icon is according to a much moving story from the New Testament. It was after Jesus has died on the cross and was burried. Mary of Magdala came to the tomb, but did not find the corpse there. She wept bitterly as she thought, someone has brought the corpse of Jesus away. Then Jesus appeared to her as a gardener and showed her this way, that he was alife, and only the body has gone. At first she did not realize that the gardener was Jesus - but when she realized she called out: "Rabboni!" This means "teacher" in Hebrew. Jesus replied: "Do not cling to me!"(see Joh. 20)
So far in short the story from the New Testament.
