  • The Bible picture of Christ Fainting under the Cross

According to the three synoptic gospels the cross was borne not by Christ, but by Simon, a Cyrenian (see Matthew xxvii, 32; Mark xv, 2 1; Luke xxiii, 26). According to the fourth evangelist, Jesus bore the cross without assistance the whole distance to the place of crucifixion (John xix, 16-18).

There is no mention that he fainted under the burden, although this is depicted in the picture by Gustave Dore.
