The word Pantocrator is Greek, meaning "Ruler of All." The image expresses the central reality of the Christian faith; the Divine Majesty of the creator and ruler of all the world, made flesh and therefore visible to us in the person of Christ Jesus our redeemer.
Both Jesus' declaration and profession. The three letters on the halo, O W H (Greek "Ho Ohn", The One Who Is). Reference to the name of Jesus (Jeshua), which contains two statements: Yhwh ("Je-" - "I am here for you") and "-shua" (supports, helps).
