The earliest followers of Jesus were persecuted and forced to
worship in hidden locations. Often these believers would scratch the
secret symbol of a fish in the ground to help identify other
Christians. Here I use < >< as a fish symbol.
Not only was fish a common food of the day, often used and
referenced by Jesus during His ministry, but the letters which make
up the Greek for "fish" (IXOYE) also spell out a (secret) message
about our Lord. I-Jesus, X-Christ, O-God's, Y-Son, E-Savior.
The fish symbol transcends differences in cultures and
denominations. Throughout generations the fish symbol continues to
identify the true followers of Jesus Christ.
