In my younger days, I was a good chess player. I learned the rules of the game and learned its logic. I will now show you how I see the chess pieces spiritually and symbolically. You can probably add other symbolism for each chess piece.
Jesus Christ. King of kings and Lord of lords.
The Church. The future bride of Christ.
The teachers of the word. The pastor, elder, those tending the flock.
The evangelist. Armored soldiers commissioned to go out into battle with the beliefs of the unbelievers.
Where the flock gather together – Church buildings, schools, halls and homes.
The members of the Church. The flock. Those learning how to use the sword, The Bible.
The world separated from the Tree of Life.
