The cross, the primary religious symbol of Christians, is a reminder of Jesus Christ's Crucifixion and the redemptive effects of his Passion and death. The cross is therefore a sign of Christ himself and of the faith of Christians. In ritual use, making the sign of the cross can, depending on the context, be an act of faith, a prayer, a dedication, or a blessing.
The shape of the cross was used as a symbol, religious or otherwise, long before the Christian era, but it is not always clear whether they are simply a mark of identity or possession. or are they important to belief and worship. The two pre-Christian forms of the cross had some vogue in Christian usage.
The symbols of our faith speak its truth. We pass these symbols on from generation to generation.
The history of the cross and its many meanings through the centuries
During persecution, early Christians used a fish as a secret sign of identification. The first letters of each word in the Greek phrase "Jesus, Christ, Son of God, Savior" spell out the Greek word for fish (ichthus).
This Christ monogram is formed from the first two letters of the Greek word Christ:
chi (X) and rho (P). IHS
This monogram for Christ with rays shining from it is taken from the first letters of the Greek name of Jesus. It is a sign of the Holy Name designed in the 15th century by Saint Bernardin of Siena.
The Lamb represents Christ as the Lamb of God sacrificed for the sins of the world. He is often depicted as victorious and holding a pennant because the Lamb has risen and is exalted in heaven as seen in the book of Revelation.
Jesus presented himself as the true vine. We are branch. Apart from him, we have no life.
This means of execution only became a popular symbol of Christ in the 14th century. Since then, it has symbolized Jesus and his redemptive work.
As the second person of the Trinity, Christ is depicted as one of the interwoven circles in the Trinity iconography. The circle symbolizes that God is eternal, meaning that God has no beginning or end.
The Heart of Christ represents His boundless love for the Father and for us, as expressed in His redemptive work:
His death and resurrection.
The rising sun symbolizes Jesus, the light of the world, who has overcome the darkness of death into new life. The early Christians prayed every morning facing the east, towards the rising sun.
In the fall, Catholics and some other Christian churches celebrate the Feast of the Cross. With this holiday, Christians commemorate the life of Jesus Christ, especially his saving death on the cross and subsequent resurrection, believing this brings them promise of forgiveness and eternal life.
The holiday has its roots in Late Antiquity, a time when the cross became an important part of Christian art and worship. The cross, once a shameful form of execution for criminals, has become a prominent symbol of Christ and Christianity.
However, the cross sometimes takes on darker meanings as a symbol of abuse, violence, and even racism. the first cross
As a scholar of medieval Christian history and worship, I have studied this complex history.
During the Reformation, Protestant churches rejected the use of the cross. In their opinion, it was a human "invention", of little use in the early church. They claim that the cross has become the object of Catholic idolatry, and that they use other versions of the simple cross instead.
The various depictions of the cross represent deeper conflicts in Western Christianity. But even before that, the cross was used divisively. In the Middle Ages, the cross was involved in a series of religious wars waged from Christian Europe to free the Holy Land from the grip of Muslim rulers.
Those who decide to go to war will wear a special garment, marked with the cross, over their everyday clothes. They "carried the cross" and were called "the crusaders".
Of all the crusades, only the first in the late 11th century really achieved its goal. These crusaders conquered Jerusalem in a bloody battle that spared women and children the aim of ridding the city of "infidels". The Crusades also caused a wave of active hostility towards European Jews, leading to outbreaks of violence against Jewish communities over the centuries. In the 19th century, the term "crusade" was used more generally to refer to any kind of struggle for a "just cause," whether religious or secular. In the United States at this time, the term was used to describe certain religious and social activists. For example, abolitionist newspaper editor William Lloyd Garrison has been called a "crusader" in his political struggle to end slavery.
The letters "INRI" are the initials of the Latin title written by Pontius Pilate above the head of Jesus Christ on the cross.
Some Christians believe that wearing a cross can protect them from evil, but many people, Christians and non-Christians alike, wear a crucifix necklace as their fashion accessory.
What did Jesus say on the cross?
And at about nine o'clock Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, Lema sabachtani?" In other words, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
