Lesson Objective: I can create my own symbol to represent the important things in my life including people, pets, hobbies or faith.
Last week, Mrs Hill asked you to draw the important parts of a church and label them. This week we are going to look at the importance of Christian symbols and what they represent.
What are the Christian symbols?
The cross is the main symbol. It reminds Christians that Jesus died on the cross to save them.
The dove is the symbol of the holy spirit and peace.
The fish symbol was created using the Greek letters which spell out ICHTHUS : Jesus Christ God's Son Saviour.
Christians devised a secret code. They drew half a fish in the sand. If a person completed the fish, they knew he or she was a believer too.
This means Jesus Christ God's Son Saviour
Look at the slides below to see some important Christian symbols and what they represent.
