Fishers of Men

About the Christian Jesus Fish

          The symbol was easy to draw and was said to be used among Christians as a type of password during times of persecution. If two strangers met and were unsure whether each other was a Christian, one would draw what appeared to be an innocent arc in the earth. If the other were a Christian, they would complete the symbol with another arc, forming the outline of a fish.
