El Perdón (La Bofetá) – The Forgiveness (The Slap)

Brotherhood of Nazarenes of Our Father Jesus of the Forgiveness before Annas, Holy Mary of Rocío and Tears and Saint Michael Archangel.

HISTORY.
It was founded in the central parish of San Miguel, although it has gone through several temples until its current canonical see. Its first image was Maria Santísima del Rocío y Lágrimas (Holy Mary of Rocío and Tears) (1990), and four years later, they included that of the Lord. In 1996 the pace of the mystery with the Lord went on procession first and, then, in 2000, the canopy pace with the Virgin.

TEMPLE.
Church of San Roque. Saint John of the Cross’s foundation, which belonged to the Discalced Carmelites a few years later. We can highlight the outside façade from the 17th century and the remains of a previous one from the 16th century.

THE IMAGES.
Nuestro Padre Jesús del Perdón (Our Father Jesus of Forgiveness) – [PHOTO #1; #2]
The image of Nuestro Padre Jesús del Perdón (Our Father Jesus of Forgiveness) was made by religious sculptor from Córdoba Francisco Romero Zafra, and it was given to the brotherhood in 1993.
The Lord is conceived as the central image of the pace, which represents the moment when he was taken before Annas, High Priest Caiaphas’s father-in-law. Annas asked him a series of questions about his doctrine, his disciples… Jesus cleverly replied that those who should answer those questions are those who had listened to him, as he had preached in public places and not secretly (according to Jewish law, the defendant could not testify, but only an accusation about external and reliable witnesses was valid). With such a reply, Annas was publicly ridiculed; therefore, one of the guards slapped Jesus while saying: Is that how you reply to the pontiff?
Jesus is represented standing, wearing a white tunic embroidered with gold, and his hands are tied on his back. It is the moment of the slap, and that is why his head is brusquely turned right after having been beaten. His expression shows a bewildered gesture typical of the moment, with his mouth half-opened and his eyes lost in thought.
As for the rest of the images on the pace, all of them, except for the Lord, were made by religious sculptor Manuel Luque Bonillo. At the front we can see the guard who slapped him, and a member of the sanhedrin is looking at him. In front of them, there is Jesus, not facing Annas, behind him there are two more guards and, finally, the figure of Annas sitting on a throne.

María Santísima del Rocío y Lágrimas (Holy Mary of Rocío and Tears) – [PHOTO #1; #2]
The image of María Santísima del Rocío y Lágrimas (Holy Mary of Rocío and Tears) was actually the one that inspired a young group of members to found the current brotherhood. Back then, Francisco Romero Zafra was about to finish it in the workshop.
Only her hands and head are sculpted. Her face is really beautiful, with a pale complexion, full lips and low look. She is showing a gesture of contained pain, with eyes reddened by the tears, her eyebrows slightly frowned and her mouth almost closed.

NAZARENE HABIT.
White tunic and cape, black face-coverer and black and white cincture.
