This Fraternity is popularly known as the “Students” because most of its members are young students from the Antequera town who, each Easter Monday, meet at the church of Real Monasterio de San Zoilo to proceed to their Station of Penitance.  This Fraternity has got the oldest image of Jesus from those of the Holy Week in Antequera. The image is known as the Santo Cristo Verde (Saint Green Christ, because it depicts the color of a corpse): a crucified Christ of the mid-16th century. Together with this image, it also goes in procession Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno de la (Our Penitent Father Jesus of the Blood), which is the sole carving of the Lord that goes in procession under a canopy in our Holy Week, and the Virgin of Vera Cruz: a candlestick image  that depicts a Virgin of Sorrow with an expressive face and great beauty.
