In the second episode of a new series (Orthodox Icons Explained), Fr. John offers us an inspiring insight into the Orthodox icon of the Baptism of our Lord. Which are the basic elements of the icon of the Feast? Why God the Father is never represented in the icons of the Christian East? What about the naked man and the naked woman in the Jordan River?
