Resurrection of Jesus is the subject, which completes the Way of the Cross and depicts the Resurrection of Jesus on the third day after his death and His appearance to His followers. Jesus Christ is shown with a scarlet robe or a robe and a loincloth holding a long cross with a flag in His left hand, which symbolises victory over death and Resurrection; his right hand is raised for blessing.

Through His own power rising from the dead and never dying again, He clearly showed to us the long-awaited promise of a coming Messiah and Saviour. By rising from the dead Christ also confirmed our faith about the resurrection of people from the dead. As St Paul the Apostle says, ‘For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.’ (Motiejus Valančius, „Žyvatas Jėzaus Kristaus Viešpaties mūsų“, Raštai 3, p. 535)
