The images focus on key moments form the resurrection of Jesus to his ascension:
Mary Magdelene finds the empty tomb
Artist Si Smith chose a nearby funeral home as the location for the tomb, 'guarded' by two sleeping policemen.
The angel appears to the women
Si comments: 'I wanted to emphasise the truth that this is a story about God breaking in to the lives of very ordinary people - people who travel by bus.'
Jesus appears to the disciples
For the upper room, Si chose the Caffe Nero in Albion Row.
Jesus appears at the lakeside
Jesus prepares an outdoor breakfast for his friends by the lakeside of Roundhay Park.
