Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Apostle and Evangelist Saint John the Theologian.
Saint John was the son of Zebedee and Salome and was one of the first followers of John the Baptist and also one of the first disciples of Jesus Christ.
His missionary work was great as were the miracles he often performed. He wrote the "Gospel of John" and during his exile in Patmos under Domitian he wrote the "Revelation of John" also known as the "Apocalypse".
Saint John the Theologian and Evangelist is an important figure of the Scriptures as his teachings and his sermons such as "Love one another" still remain a bright path in the souls of Christians.
Beloved Apostle of Christ our God, hasten to deliver a people without defense. He who permitted you to recline upon His bosom, accepts you on bended knee before Him. Beseech Him, O Theologian, to dispel the persistent cloud of nations, asking for us peace and great mercy.
