Apostle Luke painted icons of the Most-holy Theotokos—not just one, but three—as well as icons of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul.
St. Luke wrote the first icon, of the Most Holy Theotokos Directress or Hodigitria, mentioned in the Paraklesis to the Theotokos:
Speechless be the lips of impious ones,Those who do not reverence:Your great icon, the sacred one:Which is called Directress,:And was depicted for us:By one of the apostles,:Luke the Evangelist.:—The Service of the Small Paraklesis (GOARCH)
===Icons in The Old Testament===
Pictures of cherubim on temple door, on temple walls are mentioned in Old Testament in III Kings 6:29. If there would be an interdiction of all images, the groups claiming this interdiction would not use any images , photos or movies and Old Testament would probably not describe the Temple as having images of cherubim.
