Saint John the Baptist icon is painted by hand.

John the Baptist descended from princely and priestly families. Zechariah's father was a priest who came from Aaron, the prophet Moses' brother. King David was related to the righteous Elizabeth, mother of St. John the Baptist.

Like the birth of the Most Pure Mother of God, the birth of John the Baptist is closely linked to a divine miracle.

Similar to the Lord Jesus Christ, the prophet John started preaching the Word of God at the age of thirty, an age that meant a lot in ancient Hebrew society. It was the age at which a person was considered fully mature and prepared for public ministry and civil service.

The Lord Himself appeared to John the Forerunner for the first time on the banks of the Jordan River, where John was baptised by him. John is also referred to as the Baptist because of this event.

King Herod hosted a lavish feast in honour of his birthday. Together with his guests, he was captivated by Salome, the daughter of Herodias, as she danced, and pledged to grant her any wish she might have.

Salome asked for the prophet John's head after consulting her mother. Herod was taken aback by this request, yet he was unable to break his word in front of the guests. He gave the order to sever John the Baptist's head, which Salome then gave to her mother Herodias.

Commemorated on March 9, June 7 (uncovering of his holy head), and July 7 (the saint's birthday).
