The Icon Of Jesus Christ Pantocrator. Buy The Consecrated Replica Of The Byzantine Image

The Icon of Jesus Christ Pantocrator and its meaning

Icons play a crucial role in the daily lives of Christians. We turn to them in the moments of trouble when our burden is too heavy to bear. One of the most valuable images in the sacred corner of Orthodox believers is the icon of Jesus Christ Pantocrator.

This is a very specific depiction of Christ, disclosing his dual nature. On one hand, it shows him as a human because his face is asymmetrical. It reminds us that He once was a living being and walked on earth like everyone else. On the other hand, the word “Pantocrator” tells us about his position and power since this word is translated from Greek as “almighty”.

In Catholic and Orthodox churches, the image of Christ Pantocrator always occupies the central part of the building. A painting, mosaic, or fresco can be placed in the biggest dome, nave vault, or half-dome of the apse. Thus, the significance of His personality is highlighted.

The description of this image

No one knows when the first icons appeared but it’s believed that they reflect the true appearance of Jesus. The earliest Byzantine painting in this style dates back to the 6th century. Visitors of St Catherine’s Monastery at Sinai have a unique opportunity to say their prayers in front of the oldest icon of Christ Pantocrator. This depiction is a prototype of all other images of Jesus Christ.

What is so important about this depiction? First of all, the hands of the Savior are depicted according to all rules of iconography. With His right hand, He makes a blessing gesture, which grants Lord’s help to every prayer. In His left hand, he holds the open New Testament, which implies the good news of salvation.

Although the original image is made in gloomy and dark shades, more colors were added to older icons. Modern reproductions are covered with a thin layer of silver – to protect the precious icon and keep it in an excellent state for generations. You can buy a consecrated icon of the Almighty online and have it delivered to your doorstep.
