Description

Serigraph with the Kingdom of Heaven on Naturally Aged Wood

The coming of the King and the restoration of the Kingdom was the most anticipated event in Old Testament prophecy. The advent of Jesus, a descendant of David, proclaiming, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand” and demonstrating that He was anointed by the Holy Spirit by performing signs and wonders marks the fulfillment of those prophecies.

In the New Covenant God gives us His own Son, who having taken our human nature in the incarnation is truly human and yet remains truly divine as God’s only begotten Son.

He is God’s Son not by adoption through anointing but is God’s Son by nature- Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, of one essence with the Father. He is the fulfillment of all that the kingdom of God under David and Solomon could only dimly and partially point to. He is the fulfillment of all that it means to be priest, prophet, king and son of God. His is the Kingdom and the glory and the power in all its fullness and perfection.

Thus the Kingdom of God is the restored, fulfilled and transfigured Kingdom of David, where the One who rules is no mere representative of God in some partial, technical, symbolic or abstract sense, but rather the very exegesis of God the Father, the second Person of the Holy Trinity, God the Son- the icon of the invisible divinity of the Godhead, Who alone can say, “if you have seen Me, you have seen the Father. In Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem we have the Son of David coming to Jerusalem, the City of David, restoring and transfiguring the House of David, the Kingdom of God. In His death, resurrection and ascension we see Him redeem, transfigure and then elevate the Kingdom, translating the throne and capital of the Kingdom from the earthly Jerusalem to the Heavenly Jerusalem.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this serigraph with the representation of the Kingdom of Heaven has started many years before the monk had completed the representation of this holy figure on canvas. The wood was naturally aged as it was part from a cell at Mount Athos which was renovated. It has been carefully cut and preserved by monks who created these collectible icons. During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art. In that way the wood continues to live with other usage, by becoming an icon. This wood carries the blessings and prayers of monks outside the borders of Mount Athos. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be a great present for our friends and relatives.
