The central and right-hand panel are part of a single composition and show Christ, followed by male and female figures approaching from the right. These panels are both clearly 19th century . The left hand panel, which is original, shows Christ with a male figure whom Clement & Guitard mistakenly identified as Mary Magdalen (the illustrations they worked from presumably omitted this figure's beard!) What is going on here is far from clear.
