- THE FOOD OF THE BIBLE / 7
Besides being a source of nourishment, the fish is a symbol that recurs frequently in the Holy Scriptures. Early Christians used it as a sign of recognition to indicate the Saviour. It is no coincidence that Jesus makes much use of the metaphor of fishing in his discourses. And in the figure of Peter, one of the fishermen Apostles and the first Pope, we can see the link between Christ and believers.
