The Chrismon - Fish

OUR LIFE IN CHRIST story: Through Holy Baptism, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we are brought to faith in Jesus our Lord and Savior, who redeemed us, by His death on the cross, through His Word, and the Sacrament of Holy Communion, and in regular worship we are strengthened until that great day when we shall rise to eternal life with the King of Kings.

This Chrismon is the fish. Sometimes the Greek word "IXOYC" (pronounced ichthus) is written with the fish. "IXOYC" are the Greek letters for the word fish. The "I" is also the first letter of Jesus in Greek. The X is the first letter for Christ in Greek. Just like in the Iota-Chi. The "O" is the first letter of Son, the "V" the first letter of God, and the "C" the first letter of Savior. Put them all together and you've got "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior."

And he said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19
