There are two reasons why I wanted to do this. One is simply because it is an icon that is very dear to my heart.
The other reason has to do with a course I teach in which I need three icons of the same subject that are slightly different so that reaching a consensus on the favourite may require a bit of negotiation.
So here is the third icon.
This is perhaps the most different of all since it shows Jesus as a teenager, before the death of Joseph, at what appears to be a family Seder meal.
This seems very fitting with Passover being this next weekend.
I have included once again the Holy Family icon that I showed you for the first time last month.
