Greek Bible Art: Noli me tangere

The image shows the scene of Jesus as the gardener who says "Noli me tangere." The painting is by Agnolo Bronzino (source).  This verse is from John 20:16.

στραφεῖσα ἐκείνη λέγει αὐτῷ, ραββουνι.
Conversa illa, dicit ei: Rabboni.
She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni.
