This category is made ups of symbols that don't neatly fit in to other categories. Some attempt to convey significance through their geometry. Others are significant based on their connection to various characters.
Due to the disconnected nature of these symbols, their meanings vary widely.
Some, like the halo, are virtually ubiquitous throughout Christian art. Others, like the Trinity Shield, are rather obscure.
The shapes included here as Christian symbols have strange and complicated stories. Several of them are significant throughout history, and as such offer an opportunity to teach not only Scripture, but its interpretation throughout history.
Some of the shapes included here lend themselves to preaching due to their historical significance. Others carry specific theological interpretations. Either way, they offer you a way to preach about history or theology that you might not otherwise mention.
Remember that this website is constantly under development. If there are specific symbols you would like to learn to preach, or use in a Bible study, snap a picture and contact us. If we can find information on it, you may just see your symbol as the next on on the site!
