The 2018 Nativity Triptych depicts an icon of the Nativity of Jesus Christ tells of all the events of our Lord's Birth in an elegant and gilded vision of transcendent Truth. We see Mary reclining in the cave where she gave birth to the Creator of the universe and, as Isaiah prophesied, the animals recognize their Master. The angels on high proclaim the good tidings of His coming, and the shepherds and the Magi approach the place where He lay. In the foreground of the icon we see handmaidens bathing the baby Jesus who is simultaneously fully God and fully Man; all the while the Righteous Joseph wrestles with the profound mystery of this event and the temptation to be deceived by the evil one.
On the inside panel we see the beautiful icon of "The Flight into Egypt" as told in Matthew 2:13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Arise,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”
Front Panel: Christ is Born! Glorify Him!
Inside Panel: The artistic text below the icon is in New Testament Greek and is translated as "According to the Gospel of St. Matthew". This style of inscription is used in illustrated manuscripts
