2. Son of God

The Son of God is the second person of the Christian Trinity. The right hand is held in Ardapataka (half flag) to denote second person of the Trinity. The left hand opens in Alapadma in front of the abdomen and moves to the birth of the son only by the Father. The son is the only begotten of the Father (Jn:35; 5:20. 10:17). The creative aspect of the Son of God is clearly defined in the Nicene Creed. "We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from true God begotten, not made, one in being with the father, through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven". The gesture is shown in the right side because it is said that "Son is sitting at the right hand of the Father". (From the Apostle Creed).
