Icon of Friendship – Rev. Allan Brooks – Hebrews 4:14-16


Throughout church history, icons would be used to aid worshipers during worship gatherings and in prayer. This particular icon, known as the icon of friendship throughout tradition, depicts Jesus with his arm around an abbot. While we are given the description of who this other man is, tradition allows for anyone to fill the place of this other man as a reminder that Jesus is with us always, that we most definitely have a friend in Jesus.
