Founded as Mayordomía in 1939, it paraded for the first time in 1940. It was organized by a group of ciezanos, concerned and devoted to the religious spirit of our Holy Week festivities, who wanted to incorporate a Paso until then absent from them into our Parades (Jesus, recently descended from the cross, at the feet of his painful mother). The Murcian sculptor José Planes composed this Step for the Brotherhood with the Image of a Recumbent Christ that he himself had carved in the 1920s and with another of the Virgin dressed at the request of the Brotherhood for Holy Week in 1940 (La Imagen of the Virgin will be replaced in 2005 by that of Nuestra Señora del Mayor Dolor, an Image also to be dressed, the work of the famous Sevillian sculptor Luis Álvarez Duarte, from whom the Brotherhood of Santa María Magdalena acquired it); the group was installed on a golden wooden throne, made by Bautista Molina, which will be replaced in 2005 by another, commissioned for this purpose by the Brotherhood of Santa María Magdalena, carved in wood in Seville, in the workshops of the Ibáñez Valles Brothers , gilded by Manuel Carmona and with sculptures by Encarnación Hurtado that paraded completely finished in Holy Week in 2007.

He also wanted to implement the Brotherhood, as a complement to the Passionate Liturgy, the Sermon of the Seven Words, which was only valid for a few years.

Under the mandate of D. Antonio Pérez Gómez, the authentic inspirer of this Brotherhood, its first Waitress, Mrs. Purificación Gómez, his wife, gave the gold-embroidered velvet mantle for the Image of the Virgin, and shortly after the marriage In the Basilica of Our Lady of the Assumption, he paid for the chapel in which El Paso receives worship.

Throughout the years from its founding to today, two characteristics have remained intact: on the one hand, the parade of women dressed in rigorous mourning with Spanish mantillas and men in black suits, and on the other, the survival of wax as lighting for both. The robes of the Anderos, originally black, turned blue from the moment the Paso Processional Parade was taken over by the Brotherhood of Santa María Magdalena (after a few years in which it was processed, among others, by the Brotherhood of The Oración del Huerto and El Santo Sepulcro, by the Brotherhood of the Descent of Christ and Kiss of Judas, and by the Brotherhood of the Samaritan Woman, for not having their own Brotherhood).

Since the Brotherhood of the Holy Reclining Christ was linked to that of Santa María Magdalena in the eighties by the will of its founders, several restoration works have been undertaken: that of the Images, carried out in 1992 by the ciezano Antonio Martínez Villa, and that of its old Banner, acquired in times in Jumilla, carried out by the women of the Brotherhood of Santa María Magdalena in 1992. Finally, the Brotherhood recovered for its anderos in 1996 the traditional "executioner's hat" and in 2005, under the presidency of D. Joaquín Gómez, he modified its design by incorporating a Third of Nazarenes to his procession.
