Christ Jesus Icon

ABOUT the painting:

Christ, fully human and fully divine. The halo around His head is the symbol of holiness. It always has a cross in it. The three parts of the cross that show represent the Trinity.

The Greek letters on the halo, the omega, omicron, and nu, translated: “He who is”. This is a reference to Christ’s divinity, as the Old Testament reveals “He who is” to be the name God revealed to Moses
(Ex. 3:14).

The letters “IC” and “XC”, a four letter abbreviation in Greek for Jesus (IHCOYC) Christ (XPICTOC).
