Cool Chinese Character

5/4/2011

Just yesterday discovered that the traditional Chinese character for “righteousness, justice” 義 is composed of two other characters: 羊 “sheep” placed over 我 “me.” After it came up in two separate books, I just kept thinking, “What a great reminder! Jesus, the Lamb of God, is covering over me and He is my only righteousness!”

(and interestingly enough, the character for “me” (the rebel, the guilty one) is composed of two combined smaller characters: “hand” and “lance, spear”)
