Abraham

China yà bǎi lā hǎn
Abraham Wall Scroll

亞伯拉罕 is the transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Abraham.

Abraham

Japan aburahamu
Abraham Wall Scroll

アブラハム is the name Abraham written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Christian / Disciple of Christ

China jī dū tú
Japan kirisuto
Christian / Disciple of Christ Wall Scroll

基督徒 is a very strong and direct word in Chinese for "Christian."

The literal translation of the first two characters is "Christ." The last character means apprentice, follower, or disciple. Altogether these three characters mean "Christ's Disciple" or "Christ's Apprentice." 基督徒 is a pretty cool title to hang on your wall if you are a devout Christian.

Also used by Japanese Christians (but may be unfamiliar to non-Christian Japanese people).

Disciple of Christianity

China jī dū jiào tú
Japan kirisutokyouto
Disciple of Christianity Wall Scroll

基督教徒 is the most verbose (longest) word for "Christian" in the Chinese and Japanese languages.

The literal translation of the first two characters is Christ.
The third Character means "Religion" or "Teaching."
The last character means "apprentice" or "disciple."

Altogether these three characters mean "Christ's Teaching Disciple" or "Christ's Religion Apprentice."

Note: The last two characters are sometimes translated together as "follower (of a religion)," so you could also say it means "Follower of Christ."

This four-character title makes it very clear what you are talking about in Chinese.

Word of God / The Gospel

China fú yīn
Japan fukuin
Word of God / The Gospel Wall Scroll

福音 is the Chinese, Korean and Japanese word for "Gospel" or "Word of God." 福音 is a specifically Christian word in Asia (not used for any other religion).

The first character means "blessing," "good fortune" or "good luck." This first character is a special character used throughout China to bring good tidings and fortune - especially during Chinese New Years. The second character means "sound," "noise" or "news."

Together, these characters create a word that means "The Good News" or "The Sound of Good Fortune."

When read by a Chinese or Japanese person, this word is always perceived as "The Christian Gospel," "Word of God," or even "The Voice of God."

Christianity / Christian

China jī dū jiào
Japan kirisutokyou
Christianity / Christian Wall Scroll

基督教 is the Chinese, Japanese and Korean word for "Christianity." Just as in English, this word is often used to mean "Protestant" but includes Catholics in the true definition.

It is the word used to refer to the whole "Christian religion" or "Christian Faith" and therefore, it can be translated as "Christianity." However, used as an adjective in regards to a person, it would translate as "Christian." But more like saying "His religion is Christianity" rather than a noun form.

If you break it apart, the characters mean Base/Foundation Leading/Supervising Religion/Teaching. It makes more sense in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. The first two characters together are translated as "Christ." So you can also say this means "Christ's Religion" or "Christ's Teachings" when directly translated, or in reverse, "The Religion of Christ" or "The Teaching of Christ."

Notes: The last character has a slight difference in one stroke - however, in calligraphic form, this will not be apparent. This entry can easily be read by any Korean person who knows Hanja characters (Chinese characters used in Korean).

God of Zion / God of Abraham
The Judeo-Christian God

God of Zion / God of Abraham / The Judeo-Christian God Wall Scroll

上帝 is how Chinese Christians and Jews refer to God. Yes, there are Chinese Jews whose ancestry dates back to Jewish traders on the silk road. Most have left China for I presume, Israel now. There are also plenty of Christians in China of both the Protestant and Catholic variety. However, the churches are basically run by the government, and the Chinese Catholic church does not recognize the Pope.

Oddly, in my experience, I found the Chinese Protestant church to be much less political compared to Baptist and other Protestant churches that I have attended in America.

上帝 is also the typically-used title for God in Japanese.
However, while you may find this term in old Korean dictionaries, it is an obscure, and rarely-used title for God in modern Korean.

Allah / God of Islam

China zhēn zhǔ
Allah / God of Islam Wall Scroll

真主 is how Chinese Muslims refer to God (it literally means "True Master").

Oddly, in China, two different names for God have emerged. Even though Muslims, Christians, and Jews all worship the same God of Abraham.

In Arabic, the word Allah is just the Arabic way to say, God. Arab Christians pray to Allah, just like Arab Muslims. Somehow in China, the title of God diverged.

If you are curious, there are millions of Muslims throughout China but especially in the northwest portion of China known as Xinjiang. Here you will find descendants of Turkmen, Persian, Arab, and other ethnicities. Some are mixed with Han-Chinese blood; others appear to be pure Turkmen. Many have fair complexions, green eyes, and light hair but all are citizens of China. A visit to Xinjiang will shift your paradigm and blow away all of your stereotypes about what it means to be Chinese.

Prayer

China dǎo gào
Prayer Wall Scroll

禱告 is the noun that describes the act of praying to God. This term generally applies only to western religions that pray to the God of Abraham (Christians, Jews, and Muslims).

Prayer / Praying

China qǐ dǎo
Japan kitou
Prayer / Praying Wall Scroll

祈禱 is a second way to write "prayer." It is a little more formal than "dao gao" but the general meaning is the same. This Chinese/Japanese/Korean word can be translated as "to pray," "to say one's prayers" or simply "prayer." Like the other common term for prayer, this term generally applies only to western religions that pray to the God of Abraham (Christians, Jews, and Muslims).

Resurrection / Re-Birth

China fù huó
Japan hukkatsu
Resurrection / Re-Birth Wall Scroll

復活 is the Chinese, Japanese and Korean word for resurrection or rebirth. Basically this means "return to life."

It is the term used in most Asian Bibles to refer to the resurrection of Christ. In Japanese, it is sometimes used to mean a Christian Revival. In some context it can mean resuscitation.

Trust in God / In God We Trust

China xiāng xìn shàng dì
Trust in God / In God We Trust Wall Scroll

相信上帝 means exactly what the title suggests. The first two characters mean "trust" or "believe" and the second two mean "God" (as in the God of Abraham and the God of Zion).

相信上帝 is also how the American phrase "In God We Trust" as seen on U.S. Currency would be translated into Chinese. It would also be correct to say that this means "Believe in God," though in this arrangement/context, one would be more likely to interpret it as "trust."

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
