A rare icon composition goes back to the entrance miniatures of the handwritten Gospels, in which this scene, known since the 10th century, often replaces the traditional image of the seated and writing evangelist John. The literary source of the scene is the early Byzantine apocryphal text of the "Walking" of John the Theologian, ascribed to ap. Prokhor - one of the first seven deacons of the Jerusalem church and a disciple of the apostle John, who accompanied him in his wanderings. According to "Walking", St. John retired to the island of Patmos to write the Gospel. The creation of the sacred text is described on behalf of the present Prokhor as a great miracle and Divine Revelation. After a three-day fast and prayer, the apostle ordered Prokhor to sit on his right hand with parchment and ink. Then there were thunder and lightning, after which the ap. John began to broadcast, standing over his disciple and looking at the sky. The apostle dictated the Gospel for two days and six hours, and St. Prohor recorded every word of it.
