This 17th century icon features the Prophet Elias (Elijah, Iliya) and the Patriarch Enoch (Enokh).
What these Old Testament men have in common is that they never died. According to Genesis, Enoch walked with God for 365 years "and he was no more;" Sirach adds, "Enoch was translated into paradise that he may give repentance to the nations." As for Elias, he was taken into heaven in a fiery chariot as described in IV Kingdoms (II Kings). Elias' book reads, "I have been very jealous for the Lord my God."
According to Orthodox tradition, Elias and Enoch are the two witnesses described in Revelation 11, who will appear on earth before the Second Coming of Christ. They will call the world to repentance, but will be ignored and killed. After three days they will rise from the dead and Christ will return.
Saint Elias is commemorated on July 20 and Saint Enoch is commemorated among the Forefathers on the second Sunday before Christmas.
