Unable to contain the Author of Life, the gates of death are broken. They fall into the shape of a cross, which is the means by which the world is saved. The kings of the Old Testament stand at Christ's side, glorifying the true King. The prophets of the Old Testament see the fulfillment of their prophecies. Jesus lifts Adam, here representing all men, out of the abode of the dead. Jesus lifts Eve, here representing all women, out of the abode of the dead. What had previously been the inside wall of a cave is now cracked apart, open to the sky and God's light. Having achieved what no ordinary human could, Jesus stands glorified among those he brought back to life.
