My Bishop’s Cross

Bild: BischofskreuzMy bishop’s cross is a unique creation by the American artist Lisa Mikler. It is based on a one meter long wooden original. In six fields the cross shows Jesus’ “I am” words (from the top):

  1. “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End” (Revelation 22:13).
  2. “I am the vine; you are the branches” (John 15:5). “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener” (John 5:1).
  3. [= in the center: allusion to the Great Commission: the Greek X, representing Christ, superimposed upon the globe]
  4. (Lillies) “I am the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25).
  5. (Oil lamp in front of the globe) “I am the light of the world …” (John 8:12).
  6. “I am the good shepherd” (John 10:11).
  7. (a road, a scroll, and a tree) “I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6).
