Description
The upper panel of this icon shows Christ in the presence of God, with a globe in between, over which hovers the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove. Thus, the Holy Trinity is represented within a separate boundary, as if even the power of angels is not great enough to enter into this sacred realm. Below, following clockwise is the presentation of the infant Jesus at the temple. The Baptism of Jesus by St. John ("the Forerunner") marked an important turning point in His life. In the gospel of Matthew (3: 14-15), a dialogue between John and Jesus clarifies that the latter is not baptized because he needs it, but because both men must fulfill all righteousness. Below this dramatic scene is Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, followed by His Transfiguration. These important moments in Christ's life, on earth and in heaven, beautifully set against a pale blue background, present a collection of vivid images the faithful can instantly respond to. - (PF.5225)
