Lithography with Saint Judas Thaddeus

Lithography with Saint Judas Thaddeus, also known as Leviathan or Judas of James, was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ and a saint of the Orthodox Church. According to tradition, Saint Judas Thaddeus was a religiously educated Jew who had gone to Jerusalem for pilgrimage during the period John the Baptist was preaching. In fact, listening to his preaching and seeing his way of life, he was so impressed that he was baptized by him. But then, when he heard the teaching and saw the miracles of Christ, he became his disciple and followed him to the Passion. He then preached the Gospel in Judea, Samaria, Syria, Mesopotamia, and Libya, among others.
