The four letters above the head of Christ are the initials of Jesus nazareus, Rex Judaeorum, in vernacular: Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews. It is the inscription which Pontius Pilate had ordered to be fixed on the cross and which recalled the cause of his condemnation. The gospel says that this inscription was written as well in Hebrew and Greek.
The two Greek letters Alpha and Omega, are the first and last of the Greek alphabet. This symbolism means that Christ is the beginning and the end of all things, or according to the apocalypse, He is the first and the last.
Christ seems to rest on the cross as on a bed. The artist has represented the dead Savior, but he seems rather asleep. For Christ we can truly say that death is a sleep since by his own divine nature he rose again on the third day. When, Good Friday at three o'clock in the afternoon, Christ give up the ghost, his soul separated from his body, for Christ is truly dead, nevertheless his divinity remained united on the one hand to the soul of Christ and on the other hand to the dead body of Christ. We are before an abyss of mystery: how God, in the person of the Word, could be united to a dead body even for only a few hours?
