Fishers of Men & Bethlehem Olive Wood




The FISH was an early symbol of the Christianity that is still relevant and visible on bumper stickers and jewelry as a sign of Christian faith.

The fish is thought to have been chosen by the early Christians as a secretive means of identifying each other. It is said that during the persecution of the early church, a Christian meeting someone new would draw a single arc in the sand. A fellow Christian would complete the symbol by drawing the opposite arc. A non-Christian would see no significance in the arc. The fish would not be an obvious Christian symbol to persecutors. Jesus' ministry is also associated with fish. He chose several fishermen to be his disciples and declared he would make them "fishers of men."

Bethlehem Olive Wood - This biblical wood is from the trees that have been bearing fruits in the Nativity town of Bethlehem since the time of Jesus. A natural raw material that was produced from the prunes of young olive tree, the sprouts from the trunks of the old and unproductive trees which is an essential process for a healthier growth for the trees and to generate environmental stability.

No trees were damaged or destroyed in the process of harvesting this olive wood.
