Image Origins

Christ the High Priest Christ is described in the Letter to the Hebrews as the Eternal High Priest (Heb 3:1-10:39). “He, because he remains forever, has a priesthood that does not pass away. Therefore, he is always able to save those who approach God through him, since he lives forever to make intercession for them” (Heb 7:24-25). This icon depicts Christ as our Eternal High Priest, dressed in the vestments of a bishop, representing the fullness of his priesthood. The red vestments, wounds, archbishop’s pallium, and crown of thorns embossed in the halo all signify the self-emptying of Christ, a character of all who share in His ministerial priesthood. Though a king, Christ emptied Himself of the dignity of His divinity; now he reclaims it (Phil 2:7ff). Christ holds in his lap an open gospel book, symbolizing the priestly ministry of proclaiming the Good News. The text visible on the book implies that to be a true shepherd like Jesus, the priest must be willing to give his life for his flock. Christ gazes directly out to us with a benevolent expression, welcoming us into a relationship in which He encourages us to take up our cross, a burden that He makes light (cf. Mt 11:30).
