The Apostolic Preaching or Preaching of the Apostles  is an Orthodox icon with scenes from the preaching and the “suffering” or martyrdom or death of each apostle.

It is easy to recognize Jesus in the center.   The scenes outside the “pie” circle vary from image to image.  In this example we see an elaborate Deisis centered on the New Testament Trinity at the top, with the Crucifixion of Jesus below it, and a gathering of clerics at the base of the icon.
