The Pharisees Turn Away from Christ

Stained glass panel depicting the Pharisees turning away from Christ, who carries a scroll reading: "whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life" (Jn 6:54). Center panel, sixth register, Second Typological Window in the north choir aisle (n. XIV, 6), dated to about 1180. This scene corresponds with the Sower on Stony Ground in the adjacent panel, and refers to the overall theme of Typological Window 6 (where this originally appeared) comparing the seed with the bread of the Eucharist.
