At 1 inch square, this ichthys pendant is small enough to be worn everyday but large enough to remind you of your faith.
The Symbol of the Ichthys
In the days of the earliest Christian communities the ichthys acted as a secret symbol of Christianity. The ichthys symbol has many layers of meaning, which is why it has had such a long life. Initially, the meaning was this: ΙΧΘΥΣ (Ichthus) is an acronym for “Ίησοῦς Χριστός, Θεοῦ Υἱός, Σωτήρ”, (Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr), which translates into English as “Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Saviour”.
Of course, there is additionally all of the rich symbolism within the Christian tradition of fish, from the “fishers of men” episode to the feeding of the thousands episodes, and so on. This is why the ichthys symbol is such a great addition to a pendant like this. It will surely enrich your life or the life of whoever you give it to.
