An Ancient Word for "Righteousness"

By Joanne Jung Apr. 2, 2013 5:48 p.m. Theology

The Chinese word for Righteousness is made up of two words: lamb (top) and me (bottom). Amazing. My friend said it looks like someone's dancing. Jesus' righteousness is imputed to me. Yeah, I'm dancin'! And as another friend reminds me, He is Risen today, too.

    Thank you, Dr. Jung.

    I have this same word framed in my office. A friend of mine who knows Chinese pointed out that if we remove the little "ears" from the top word "lamb," another word is revealed: KING!

    This continues to fascinate me, Dan. Thanks for your comment. I'm having that piece framed now and it will go in my office. So cool. May be adding other ancient Chinese words of interest (fascination) soon.
