This Apostle was an Antiochean, a physician by trade, and a disciple and
companion of Paul. He wrote his Gospel in Greek after Matthew and Mark, after
which he wrote the Acts of the Apostles, and dedicated both works to
Theophilus, who, according to some, was Governor of Achaia. He lived some
eighty-six years and died in Achaia, perhaps in Patras, the capital of this
district. His emblem is the calf, the third symbolical beast mentioned by Ezekiel,
which is a symbol of Christs sacrificial and priestly office, as Saint Irenaeus
The icon reproductions are
created by iconographer monks of various Greek Orthodox monasteries in Greece
and all images are approved replications by the Greek Orthodox Church.
As icons are considered to be the Gospel in image, these images are accurate
and true Orthodox renderings, not second-hand interpretations. The icon
images are mounted on solid wood and protected from tarnish with a varnish
finish that seals in colors and creates a shiny luster.
