Icon of the Bethlehem Martyrs 14,000 infants, killed by Herod in Bethlehem.


The Holy Martyrs of 14,000 infants were killed by King Herod in Bethlehem. When the time came for the greatest event – the Incarnation of the Son of God and His Birth from the Blessed Virgin Mary, the eastern magi saw a new star in the sky, foreshadowing the birth of the King of Judah. Immediately they went to Jerusalem to worship the One who was born, and the star showed them the way. After worshiping the Infant of God, they did not return to Jerusalem to Herod, as he ordered them, but, having received a revelation from above, they left for their country in a different way.

Then Herod realized that his plan to find the Baby had not come to fruition, and ordered all male children from two years old and younger to be killed in Bethlehem and the surrounding area. He expected that among the murdered children there would be a Bogomladenets, in whom he saw a rival. The ruined babies became the first martyrs for Christ.

 

The icon is made by printing on a wooden board. Paints are mineral, do not fade with time. The thickness of the board is 2 cm. The board is covered with soil by hand. The image is covered with wax. Each icon has a metal mount on the back side so that you can hang the icon on the wall.

Our icons are made by Orthodox craftsmen. You can read more about the technology here: https://iconsofsaints.com/pages/how-is-the-icon-made
