Pendant #326 - Jerusalem Cross
Polished bronze with cutouts, 1 1/2" high, on brown cord, packaged in poly bag.The Jerusalem cross is comprised of a cross surrounded by four smaller crosses. These smaller crosses represent the four evangelists who wrote the gospels and helped spread the word of Jesus Christ in all directions.Perhaps the most compelling symbolism found in the Jerusalem Cross is that of the five wounds Jesus Christ suffered during the passion. Wounds to Christ's hands and feet are represented in the small crosses and the large center cross represents the wound to Jesus' side.Today, the Jerusalem Cross calls Christians everywhere to continue to spread the word our Lord, Jesus Christ in all four corners of the world. The Jerusalem Cross is a popular gift for retreats, confirmations and anyone answering the Lord's call to service.
