Description

This handmade orthodox icon is a lithography with double varnish layer to ensure vivid colors & waterproof properties depicting Apostle Paul is a god inspired artwork abiding to the Athonian technique that was gives this icon unique religious & aesthetic value. The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Paul was not one of the Twelve Apostles. Paul was the "Apostle to the Gentiles" (Romans 11:13, Galatians 2:8, 1 Timothy 2:7), being converted while on the road to Damascus by Jesus Himself. The Church remembers St. Paul together with St. Peter on June 29. Life Named Saul at his birth in the city of Tarsus, the holy apostle was a son of the tribe of Benjamin. Saul became a Pharisee under Gamaliel, one of the chief Jewish Rabbis (Masters/Teachers) of the day. After his study under the great Rabbi, Saul became one of the chief persecutors of Christians. Present at the stoning of St Stephen (Acts 7: 58), Saul later found himself blinded by Jesus Himself on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:1-22). Sought out by the Apostle Ananias, Saul immediately repented & Ananias baptized him. Saul, soon after his conversion called Paul, was later named & numbered among the Apostles. He worked closely with the Evangelist Luke.The extent of Paul's preaching as he spread the Gospel went far & wide from Arabia to Spain, to both Jews & Gentiles. He was called the "Apostle to the Gentiles." Paul spent his new life in suffering & labor for Christ, establishing & organizing churches everywhere. He reached such a state of perfection that he was able to say to the Church at Galatia: "not I, but Christ lives in me" (Galatians 2:20). Like the Apostle Barnabas, Paul studied under Gamaliel. The account of Paul's missionary journeys & the letters he wrote to the Churches he founded form an important part of the New Testament. St. Paul was martyred with the Apostle Peter under Nero by beheading. Can be hung on a wall or placed on a flat surface. The item is sold without the stand depicted.
