Advent 11- Savior Come

Bible Marginalia Series- #208
Isaiah 7:13-14

A sign marking the foretold promise.
"Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and shall call his name Immanuel."

Oh Savior Come!
On each of our Advent days 
may we hold onto the promise- 
of the Lord to earth gift. 
And may we remember as well,
 and anticipate the return!

The Ichthys is the symbol that tells the story.

The fish, Greek ichthys (ἰχθύς),
 is a symbol for Christ which has been
 in use since the days of the early church.
 In Greek, it is an acronym for 
The first appearances of the 
ichthys symbol in Christian art 
and literature date to the 2nd century AD. 
The symbol's use among Christians 
had become popular by the late 2nd century.
And even now- 
let us dwell in the meaning of this rich symbol.
 Oh! Savior Come!
