This 21st century icon, specially commissioned by Legacy Icons, shows the scene of the Mystical Supper (or the Last Supper). Christ reveals that one of his Disciples will betray Him, as they look at one another with shock. Judas, the betrayer, is seen reaching his hand toward the bowl, as the Gospel says. At this Passover meal, Christ instituted the most holy sacrament of the Eucharist.
The holy Eucharistic meal mystically transforms the nature of meals, in the same way that Baptism transforms all water and the Cross transforms all trees. For this reason, many Orthodox Christians display an icon of the Mystical Supper, particularly large ones, in their dining rooms. This icon makes a wonderful housewarming gift, and an ideal gift for a newly-married couple.
Icon by the hand of Georgi Chimev.
