Where Did The Christian Fish Symbol Come From

The Christian fish symbol or other wise called the ichthus symbol has be used for a very long time. Many Christians today use this symbol to let others know they are a Christian. For example I’m sure you’ve seen the fish symbol on the back of cars and trucks while driving around.

So where did this symbol originate? The symbol was used by early Christians that were persecuted in the first centuries after Christ. This symbol was actually used by Christians to distinguish friends from foes. In fact from one ancient story, when a Christian met a stranger in the road, the Christian sometime drew one arc of the simple fish outline in the dirt. Then if the stranger then drew the remaining arc they both knew they where in good company.

The ichthus symbol also originally was accompanied by the Greek letters TM. These stand for Jesus, Christ, God, Son and Savior respectively. These combined letters where actually pronounced as a word. Surprisingly in ancient adaptation of the ichthus, it was made into a wheel where the Greek letter are superimposed inside the wheel then creating the 8 spokes of the wheel.

But why a fish.? In Gospel fish are a meaningful reference used over and over again. One such example is the feeding of five thousand where a boy is brought to Jesus with "five small loaves and two fish". The question is asked, "But what are they, among so many?" Jesus multiplies the loaves and fish to feed the multitude.
