The Meaning Behind The XP (Chi Rho) Symbol


XP (CHI RHO)
The first letter for the Greek word for Christ is a letter called “Chi,” which looks like an English X.  The second letter for the Greek word for Christ is called “Rho,” and it looks like our letter P.  So, many of the early Christians blended together these two Greek letters to create a special monogram for Christ. 
(The Greek word for Christ is XPICTOC.)
