Jesus

China yē sū
Jesus Wall Scroll

This is simply the name "Jesus" transliterated into Chinese. These characters hold a pronunciation in Mandarin that is closer to the real and original Hebrew Yeshua, instead of the incorrect way we have always pronounced Jesus in English with a hard "J" sound. While this name sounds like the real "Jesus" in Chinese, Christians in China are more likely to say "Christ" (Jidu) which holds more meaning than just sound.

If you are Latino and have been given the name "Jesus," this is also how to write your name in Chinese.

Jesus

Japan jiizasu
Jesus Wall Scroll

This is the name Jesus written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese). This is a common version that approximates pronunciation in English. However, there are many variations for writing Jesus in Japanese, and it's hard to come up with an absolute answer (transliteration of names is more art than science).


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

Jesus

Japan iesu
Jesus Wall Scroll

This is the name Jesus written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).

This version is used most often when talking about Jesus the Christ.


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

Jesus

Japan iezusu
Jesus Wall Scroll

This is the name Jesus written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese). This is from the more Latin / Spanish pronunciation (without the hard "J" sound at the beginning).


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

Jesus Christ

China yē sū jī dū
Jesus Christ Wall Scroll

This is the full version, with the name "Jesus" being the first two characters and the meaning of "Christ" as the last two. You can't get more specific than this when referring to the Messiah.

Jesus Christ is my Savior

China yē sū jī dū shì wǒ jiù zhǔ
Jesus Christ is my Savior Wall Scroll

This Chinese phrase reads, "Jesus Christ is my savior."

Jesus Christ is My Savior

Japan Iesu kirisuto wa watashi no sukuinushi desu
Jesus Christ is My Savior Wall Scroll

This is a Japanese phrase that means, "Jesus Christ is my savior."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana and Katakana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Jesus is Lord

China yē sū shì zhǔ
Jesus is Lord Wall Scroll

This means, "Jesus is Lord" in Chinese.

Jesus is Lord

Japan Iesu wa omodearu
Jesus is Lord Wall Scroll

This means, "Jesus is Lord" in Jesus.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana and Katakana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Jesus is my Savior

China yē sū shì wǒ jiù zhǔ
Jesus is my Savior Wall Scroll

This Chinese phrase reads, "Jesus is my savior."

Jesus is my Savior

Japan iesu wa watashi no sukuinushi desu
Jesus is my Savior Wall Scroll

This is a Japanese phrase that means, "Jesus is my savior."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana and Katakana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Jesus is My Life

China yē sū shì wǒ de shēng mìng
Jesus is My Life Wall Scroll

耶穌是我的生命 means Jesus is my life in Chinese.

The first two characters are a transliteration of the name Jesus into Mandarin Chinese.
The third character means, is.

The fourth and fifth mean, my or mine.

The last two characters mean life, as in lifespan, or from birth to death.

This is not a common phrase for Chinese Christians, but this is the best way to translate this idea from English to Mandarin Chinese.

Christian / Disciple of Christ

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

This 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." This 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).

Christ

China jī dū
Japan kirisuto
Christ Wall Scroll

This how to write "Christ" in Chinese characters, Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji. This is the word used in the Chinese Union Bible (the only readily-available translation of the Bible into Chinese that I know of - published about 100 years ago). For Chinese Christians, this is the most common way to refer to Jesus Christ.

This is also the way that "Christ" is written in Japanese. But since the Japanese language is very flexible about the sounds that can be assigned to various Kanji, these characters have been assigned a pronunciation that sounds a lot like "Christ" or actually closer to the original "Christos." In Japanese (if you don't know how the Romaji shown above in the gray box works) it sounds like "key ree sue toe" using English words/sounds. Say those four words really fast and you'll get it.
It should be noted that only Japanese Christians will be familiar with this word.

This word is best defined, read and understood with the characters together but if you take this word for Christ apart, the first character means "fundamentals" or "foundation." The second character can mean "leader" or "boss."

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

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.
