Often titled “Christ Pantocrator” which means “Ruler of All,” Christ the Teacher is one of the best known presentations of Jesus in Byzantine iconography. While holding a Gospel that declares, “I am the Light of the world,” Christ blesses the beholder. His halo includes the letters “I AM,” symbolizing His divinity and referring to His words, “Before Abraham was, I AM.” The Greek letters “IC” and “XC” in the upper corners of the icon are abbreviations of the Greek words for “Jesus” and “Christ.”

The Our Father
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
