Many Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross for their sins, others say Jesus died on a cross because he was a political rebel and claimed to be king of the Jews. Regardless of which belief you hold, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ stands for sacrifice and devotion to God. The symbol always has the body of Jesus pinned to the Latin cross. The hands of Jesus are outstretched, and his feet are nailed to the bottom of the cross in accordance with the Biblical references. The crucifix is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus made - his life - for the redemption of all mankind. Some crucifixes have the word INRI on top; INRI is an acronym for the Latin phrase 'Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum' or 'Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews'. According to the gospels, this phrase was written on the cross by the Roman governor Pontius Pilate [John 19:19]. For a beautiful way to stay close to your faith, a crucifix pendant offers stunning beauty as a daily reminder of the sacrifices made by Jesus.
