Mark the Apostle and Evangelist - Aged Byzantine Icon

[OLD_st119-2636]

Iconographer: Michael Father

Commemorates on: April 25
Mark was an idolater from Cyrene of Pentapolis, which is near Libya. Having come to the Faith of Christ through the Apostle Peter. he followed him to Rome. While there. at the prompting of Peter himself and at the request of the Christians living there. he wrote his Gospel in Greek. and it is second in order after Matthews. Afterwards, travelling to Egypt. he preached the Gospel there and was the first to establish the Church in Alexandria. The idolaters, unable to bear his preaching, seized him, bound him with ropes, and dragged him through the streets until he, cut to pieces on rocks, gave up his soul. It is said that he completed his life in martyrdom about the year 68. He is depicted in holy icons with a lion next to him, one of the living creatures mentioned by Ezekiel (1:10). and a symbol of Christs royal office, as Saint Irenaeus of Lyons writes.

I received the icons yesterday. They are beautiful (as I had no doubt they would be). Thanks again for everything.
