earliest Christian symbol for
Christ, the fish. The letters of
the Greek word for fish form
an acrostic for the phrase,
•‘Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Sav
iour”. This was used by Christ
ians during the early persecu
tions to identify each other.
Clement of Alexandria recom
mended the design of a fish as
suitaible for Chr.stians to use
