Jesus in Chinese Art

Circle of Pneuma in Australia has these great images from China of the life of Jesus.


These pictures: 1. Nativity and 2. The Woman at the Well.


UPDATE: I like these a lot better than Western images of Jesus.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • Thanks for the link to my post on Jesus in Chinese Art. Much appreciated. I hope it stimulates some productive reflections about contextualisation. There are some marvellous opportunities for those with discerning eyes to reach beyond the walls of church ghettoes and interact at a very meaningful level with many of today’s adepts and devotees of alternate pathways.
    My blogs try to push the envelope a bit on the spiritual frontiers facing Christians.

  • as a Chinese (in Malaysia), I’ve always felt a close connection with paintings like these. I decided to us one for this week’s bulletin.
