The impression counted several States, Hollstein mention's eight States and Hind to ten, but Hinterding them reduced to five. This is a state later with the hat added to the man with open arms to the left. This hat wasn’t added in the first States. This printing is probably from the 18th century or very early. (before 1808)

Rembrandt engraving lustrates the moment described in the Bible when Jesus, standing by the grave, said in a loud voice: "Lazarus, come forth." The dead man came out, hands and feet wrapped in linen strips, his face wrapped in a cloth ' (John 11: 43-4).
The focus is mainly on the reactions of spectators. Although Jesus is rendered as an imposing figure with his arm raised in the notice of meeting, his face is all but invisible as he is standing with his back half turned to the Viewer. The faces and the wild gestures of the other people present, among them, the Sisters of Lazarus, Mary and Martha, are simple to see, however, clearly record his surprise for the miracle that is occurring.
