Flight into Egypt, Waltham Abbey

The right-hand panel of the Victorian reredos in Waltham Abbey parish church. It depicts the flight into Egypt "an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, ‘Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.’ Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother by night, and went to Egypt" (Matthew 2:13-15)
