Resurrection. Descent into Hell
 
Resurrection. Descent into Hell

The descent into hell completes the expiatory mission of Jesus Christ. While the body of Christ was in the tomb His human soul descended to the depths of hell and preached to the souls of the deceased thereby setting them free. The Savior led the souls of Old Testament righteous people out including Adam and Eve. There is almost no mention in the canonical Gospels about the descent of Jesus Christ to hell. This event is described in much more detail in the apocryphal Gospel according to Nicodemus.
Pentecost
 
Pentecost

In the Orthodox Church the Holy Trinity is glorified mainly on the first day of Pentecost Sunday, which is called Pentecost day. Liturgy of this day reveals the dogmatic teaching of the Holy Trinity, and the Icon with its image is brought out on that day for worship. As to Icon of the Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles it is brought out on Monday, the second day of Pentecost which is dedicated to the Holy Spirit and is called the day of the Spirit. Thus, the two icons correspond to the feast of Pentecost.
The Holy Supper
 
The Holy Supper

After eating the Old Testament Jewish Passover Jesus Christ instituted at this supper the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Therefore it is called The Holy Supper. The Savior gave His disciples under the likeness of bread and wine the same Body and the same Blood that he would give for suffering and death for our sins the next day. The Lord gave commandment to always administer this sacrament, saying: Do this in remembrance of me. (Mt. 26:17-35; Mk. 14:12-31; Lk. 22:7-39; Jn. 13-18)
