Great Canon

A basic distinguishing feature of the Great Canon is its extremely broad use of images and subjects taken both from the [[Old Testament|Old]] and [[New Testament|New]] Testaments. As the Canon progresses, the [[congregation ]] encounters many biblical examples of sin and repentance. The Bible (and therefore, the Canon) speaks of some individuals in a positive light, and about others in a negative one—the penitents are expected to emulate the positive examples of sanctity and repentance, and to learn from and avoid the negative examples of sin, fallen nature and pride. However, one of the most notable aspects of the Canon is that it attempts to potray the Biblical images in a very personal way to every penitent: the Canon is written in such form that the faithful identify themselves with many people and events found in the Bible.
