In the center, a man (Judas) embraces another man (Jesus). In the next panel four soldiers are whipping (scourging) a man with a halo (Jesus). In the center panel are three crucified figures, the center (Jesus) being about twice as big as the others. There are figures crowded below. In the next panel a man (Jesus) is laying dead on a tomb, resting on a diagonal. In the rightmost panel a man (Jesus) is stepping out of the tomb with angels on both sides of him and four soldiers around the tomb.
