Ship Symbol

Photo (Chris D.) Christian symbol on a paving stone at the Temple of Apollo, Didim, Turkey. The ship (bark or barque, barchetta) was an ancient Christian symbol. It is the Church tossed on the sea of disbelief, worldliness, and persecution but finally reaching safe harbor with its cargo of human souls. Note the fishing net (Mk 1:17 “I’ll make you fishers of men”) and the anchor (Heb.6:19 “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain”)
