Grafted in Symbol: Grafted in and its symbolism
The symbol “Grafted In” became very popular during last decades. It was discovered in the Jerusalem area as a decoration on pottery dated at the 2nd Century A.D. Some archaeologists decided that this symbol was an identity mark of the early Christ followers. It was a sign that they united together their traditions and religion into incipient Messianic congregation.
The “Grafted In” explains the development of relationship between Jewish people and Gentile.
As it is written in the Romans 11:17-18 “If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: you do not support the root, but the root supports you”..
In other words it means that the Christianity takes its roots from Judaism and we all are branches of one tree.
The Menorah on the top of the symbol stands for Torah, the Light of the Judaism.
The Star of David reminds us that the son of David, Yeshua the King, will govern the Kingdom of David.
The fish identifies with the believer. The Greek word ICHTHUS, meaning “fish” was an acronym for “Yeshua”.
This ancient symbol is completely merged together, meaning that our G-d is grafting us all together in our faith and strengthening us in Messiah.
