Teaching Christ Wood Icon


  • "Pantokrator" is the Greek translation of the Hebrew title El Shaddai, meaning "all powerful." Looser translations are "Ruler of all" or "Sustainer of all." This attribution to Jesus was important given the Christological controversies that tore the early church. The Christ Pantokrator icons were symbols of the Nicene verdict that Christ was co-equal and co-eternal with God. The first icon shown here is the earliest known Christ Pantokrator icon dated around the 6th or 7th Century."
