I've acquired two of copies of this particular icon. One which hangs in my home, and one which hangs in the parish. To me this one truly speaks to St. John's role as the forerunner, and his passing of the baton to our Lord at the Jordan River.
This was a birthday gift for my grandfather who is a deacon. He said he loves it.
St. John the Baptist.
"For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he."
I purchased this icon and am very happy. An icon of St. John the Baptist is a must-have for any Orthodox icon corner.
This is an excellent icon of Saint John the Baptist in its depiction of this much beloved Saint supplicating our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
O Holy John, pray for us, God's children. O Holy Saint, pray that Christ have mercy upon us!
Uncut Mountain Supply has the most beautiful Icons and at the most reasonable prices. Never been disappointed with their products.
A great addition to our home chapel. I like it when St. John is pointing to Christ, as it is so positioned on our shelf.
