I asked Kade to grace my walls with her beautiful art. Being the Catholic dude I had to have Fish…Eucharist…yeah. So I showed her some of Rudolf Koch’s stuff from the 1930’s. What she came up is nothing short of amazing. I am in love with her stuff and can’t wait to post subsequent blogs showing you the beatitudes one she is doing next. Anyways here is the picture with a short description of the <>< Christian Fish thingie.
Scripture about Fish:
Mark 1:17 – Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Matthew 14:17 – But they said to him, “Five loaves and two fish are all we have here.”
John 21:6 – So he said to them, “Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find something.” So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in because of the number of fish.
Around the 16th century Christians began using the Greek word ichthys for “fish”. Ichthys is the most commonly used word in the New Testament for fish. Ichthys consists of five letters from the Greek alphabet: I-ch-th-y-s. When these five letters are used as initials for five words, we obtain this Christian Declaration: Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter. This is an acrostic for ‘Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior.’
