Cross Pendant Ichthys, Antique-Silver-Tone
The shape of the cross represents our faith and hope. These precious-metal, antique-silver-tone pendants with 65cm black textile cords are individually packed.
The Icthys symbol comes from Greek and means “fish“. Early Christian used the fish during the times of persecution as a secret symbol of recognition. To be sure if present, unknown people were followers of Jesus or not they drew an arch in the sand. If the other person then completed the symbol with another arch to make the fish they revealed that they too were a Christian.
The fish wasn’t chosen at random, but rather has two meanings. Firstly, it refers Mark 1:17 where Jesus called upon Simon (who was later named Peter) and his brother Andrew while they were fishing in the Sea of Galilee to go with him and become fishers of men. As well as this, a type of profession of faith can be derived from the beginning letters of the Greek word:
I - Jesus
Ch - Christ [the "anointed", in Hebrew "Maschiach" (the Messiah)]
Th – God‘s
Y – Son
S – Saviour
Carrying God with you is a good feeling, close to your heart. With this cross pendant Christians can openly profess their faith. For this reason, it’s popular to give these crosses to young people for their Confirmations or Communions as a companion for life. The length of the cord (approx. 68cm) has been carefully chosen so that it comfortably fits over your when during the Church service.
