Symbols of Christ

The Lamp

symbol of lamp

The Symbols of the burning lamp appears in the history of our salvation for the first time in Abraham's vision, when at sunset a trance came upon him and a great and gloomy terror seized upon him, and he saw, in the thick darkness, a smoking furnace and a burning torch passing between the pieces of the sacrifice.






Note: All of these symbols can be seen on the outside walls of the Hesburgh Library.
