According to St. Mark’s Gospel, chapter 4, the disciples, terrified by the furious storm that came upon their fishing boat, called out to Jesus for help. His powerful Word stilled the wind and the waves. The disciples asked themselves still terrified by their ordeal, “Who is this? Even the wind and waves obey Him!”

The beautiful and powerful icon known throughout the Church’s history as “Pantocrator,” tells us exactly who He is. Pantocrator-Lord omnipotent, Almighty, All-Powerful. In the earliest days of the Christian worship, when Roman persecution swirled around the daily life of Orthodox Catholic Christians, the icon most often seen in the Catacombs where these Christians worshipped was that of the Good Shepherd, the Lord who comforts His flock. Later in as new threats came upon the maturing Church from outside the Empire-various invasions of barbarians threatening the very homeland Empire; Huns, Vandals, Goths, and then Muslims, Christians needed an emphasis on the Almighty God who sat enthroned as Emperor, Monarch and Ruler.

The word Pantocrator and the idea behind it appear in the book of Revelation. God speaks in Revelation 1:18, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Lord Who is, Who was and Who is to come, the “Pantocrator” (Almighty). The use of the multi-colored band that we usually see around the figure of the Pantocrator in the dome of Churches is based on Rev. 4:3 where the iris or rainbow is said to surround the throne of God. Normally the icon of Christ Pantocrator is the most remote of all the conventional poses. Christ is distant from us and sometimes His face is stern. Yet in other iconic depictions such as that of the Balkan Churches, we find the Pantocrator with dancing eyes. His face is sharp. His mouth tiny with the effort of suppressing a smile and his fingers thin and dancing where they hold the Book. The Gospel book in the icon is closed, but Jesus knows what is inside; the Good news of God’s love, of the destruction of sin and death and the enemies of God’s Church as well as life everlasting for the faithful who have endured and whose names are written in the Book of Life. So what a wonderful icon to have and hold in our homes. An image of the God who constantly looks upon us; sees us in our sorrow and strife and comforts us, upholds us and stills the wind and waves that afflict us as well.

    Wonderful Icon

    Posted by Micah Carnes on Feb 6th 2023

    I purchased this icon specifically because of its rich history as a survivor of the iconoclasm. The solemn eyes of Christ staring into your soul at your icon corner…there is a sort of peace and mortal fear one gets staring back, knowing Christ is looking you in the face. This was my very first icon, gotten when I was merely an inquirer. Now, as a Christian newly illumined, I may appreciate the great spiritual value of this masterpiece

    This is the second icon I've purchased from Legcy Icons. I couldn't be happier with my choices. Christ Pantocrator is perfect for praying the chaplet to the holy face of Jesus.The asymetrical face of Jesus is almost mesmerizing..

    A BEAUTIFUL AND GENUINE PIECE OF CHRISTIAN HISTORY 1. STUDIES IN EASTERN THEOLOGY: MY recent studies in this area brought me to an appreciation of iconography and its beauty and symbolism 2. LARGE PLEASE: I purchased the large icon and I’m glad I did; it is perfect on a shelf and I have lighting above it. 3. DEVOTIONAL SANCTUARY ROOM: one bedroom in my house is dedicated to being a prayer and contemplation sanctuary; with paintings; bronze sculpture and now icons 4. HIS FACE: I watched a video on YouTube to learn the symbolism behind this icon; and now it means even more; both natures are represented in the painting; fully divine; and fully human; something orthodoxy will not compromise on. 5. PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS: I like being able to track my purchases on the LEGACY SITE; and shipment is prompt and prices are fair; I have compared 6. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: 5 stars; submitted 6-09-2020

    I wasn’t sure what to expect with a print, but am pleased beyond measure with this icon. For me, Christ truly “ comes to the window” in this icon. I got the mastercraft which is lovely. My priest was struck by the beauty of it
