The ichthus in this ring represents an ancient symbol for Jesus. In Greek, the first letters of the words, “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior” spell ichthus, the greek word for fish. The fish symbol is one of the earliest signs for Jesus Christ and was used by early Christians as an “underground” method of identification. The ichthus also suggests the theme “fishers of men”, which is what Jesus promised to make Andrew, Peter, James, and John, all fishermen by trade; if they followed Him. They were His first disciples.
