ΙΧΘΥΣ - Ichthus

ΙΧΘΥΣ The letters in the Greek ancient word « ichthus » symbolize Christ, whom Christians believe to be the Son of God, the face of God, the Alpha and the Omega.

The Greek word ichtus means « fish ».The Greek (ichthus) were the first letters of the Greek words, an acronym, for «  Jesus Christ, Son of God, the Savior.  » It is a symbol for Christ. During times of persecution, the early Christians used a fish as a secret sign of identification.

I = I Iêsous Jesus
X = Ch Christos Christ
Θ = Th Theou of God
Y = U Uios Son
Σ = S têr Savior
so Iêsous Christos Theou Uios Sôtêr
Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior
