Christ Pantocrator (Sinai) Icon - X117

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.

    Exactly what I expected. My wife and I are, by all accounts, in the process of coming to Holy Orthodoxy. This was our first icon (no small thing as a third year student in an evangelical seminary!). We are very happy with our purchase—fully recommended.

    Excellent product!

    Posted by Wendy W on Aug 20th 2019

    This is one of my favorite icons. Legacy Icons got it to me very quickly. It is solid, the base is thicker/sturdier than I thought it would be from the catalogue. The quality is very good, IMO. I would like to purchase more icons from Legacy Icons in future. Thanks, y'all, you do good work! :-)

    Looks best with protective wax coating.

    Looks best with protective wax coating. Online pictures do not do it justice. The larger the size the more details appear.

    Nice print, but a bit disappointed

    Posted by Bistra McCullough on Dec 22nd 2018

    I was a bit disappointed when I received the Icon. I expected the print it to be more smoothly attached to the wood. It seems like the corners of the print are already starting to chip only by taking it a few times out of the box to look at it and rapping it in paper for a present. I understand that for 40$ I can't be too picky but kind of expected it to be attached in a more inconspicuous way . I also thought that all the Icons were made on canvas and found out after I received my order that only the masterpiece type are done this way .I still like the website and would recommend to family and friends. (Legacy Icons Response: We are happy to replace an icon that arrives damaged, and the plastic bag should protect it from incidental damage when wrapping. Canvas is an option. If you have any problems with your order, please don't hesitate to use the form on our Contact page.)

    Recommended by Spiritual Director

    Posted by AJPB on Jun 13th 2018

    My spiritual director recommended that I acquire an image that inspired some sense of religious fervor in me when I prayed before it. I looked at countless styles of art of countless Saints before I came across this image of our Saviour. This was exactly what I needed. Depending on my state at the time, there is a part of the image that fits perfectly; be it the harsh divine, the gentle human, the inspiring scriptures or the guiding hand, this image has been of great benefit to my prayer life.
