St John the Baptist

St John the Baptist


The life of the glorious and angelic Forerunners as recorded in the Gospels is truly an inspiration and example to all Christian. St John was killed because he reprimanded Herod and Herodias for their unlawful union, and because Herod was pleased at the dancing of Herodias' daughter Salome. St John offers Christ his head, seen here on a platter, as he supplicates Christ above. He also called many in Israel to the baptism of repentance before Christ would give the baptism of spirit. 


This icon was produced in a small monastery of the Eastern Orthodox Church in the beautiful southwest of Wisconsin USA. It is believe to be the largest selection of historical icons produced and distributed anywhere in the world.
