Andreas, lines 696-821

Andreas’ story about Jesus continues. Jesus performed many miracles and then went into the desert. Then He returned to the temple and noted that He saw marvelous carvings of his angels there. Then Jesus declares that a miracle will occur and, it does: voices come out of the hard stone and criticize the priests of the temple. The oldest priests refuse to believe the miracle and say that it is merely sorcery. So the carvings begin to walk through the streets, preaching, until they reach Mamre, where the bodies of the patriarchs were buried. The animated statue then causes Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to rise up from their graves. The people were terrified, and then honored Jesus for this.

Andreas continues to tell stories of the glory of Jesus all day long.
