Reasons to Believe Meeting

January 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Please join us for our Reasons to Believe chapter meeting on Fri., Jan. 11, at 7:00PM in the Family Center Rooms 524-525. Our speaker will be BCC’s own John Yue. His topic will be “Genesis Story in the Chinese Characters.” The Chinese language was conceived and codified over 4,500 years ago, approximately coinciding with the time of the Tower of Babel. The Chinese religion of that time was monotheistic. Analysis of some of the Chinese characters shows an amazing similarity to some of the stories in the books of the Old Testament. John will recount some ancient Chinese history and relate some remarkable parallels with Hebrew history. Could it be that the early Chinese people had knowledge of the stories of Genesis passed on to them in oral tradition after the Tower of Babel dispersion? If these ideas are true, what are the implications for today? This topic may be of particular interest to those of Chinese heritage or those holding to an Eastern belief system. Our meetings are always free of charge. We will have a drawing for some free RTB resources. Refreshments will be served. Guests are encouraged to come.
