Part 2 Biblical Origin of Chinese People
Part 2-Anyone Interested in Biblical Origin of Chinese People
Recently, I published the first part of the Introduction chapter of my book "Middle Kingdom - Legendary Beginning of China and the Bible" (go to my archive hubs to see the page) to see if Christians in the West have interest in the biblical origin of Chinese people. I got only a handful of comments but there is increasing traffic showing up to this day. I'm encouraged although I hope to see more comments. So I decided to publish the last part of the Introduction chapter here. Please spread the word and write me comment...

Part 2 ... Excerpt from the Introduction Chapter from the book "Middle Kingdom-Legendarg Beginning of China and the Bible"
... Mankind's first civilization arose in ancient Near East. The Sumerians were the first people to spread civilization to the world. The legendary sages in China could come from people in the ancient Near East.
Up to now archaeologists could only find archaeological evidences of the Shang Dynasty (1766 BC to 1050 BC) in Anyang (Shang palace) and other sites in northeastern China. Thus, the Shang Dynasty marked the beginning point of substantiated Chinese history. However, this doesn't mean the legendary sages, Yellow Emperor, and the Xia Dynasty are fiction. There are ancient Chinese documents made references to their existence. Therefore, Chinese historians included them as legends in the beginning history of China. The truth is the origin of Chinese people is a complicated conundrum.
Chinese historians assumed Mongoloid people were the only type of people occupied China in the beginning.. Therefore, all legendary figures such as Yellow Emperor, the three sovereigns, five sages, and the primitive people in Chinese legends were Mongoloid people. Although Chinese archaeologists discovered ancient human skulls and remains that anatomically pointed to the Mongoloid type of human, how could Chinese historians and archaeologists can be sure that Mongoloid people were the only race occupied in China since the dawn of Chinese history?
Right from the beginning, early Chinese people saw the West was the utopia world where eternal happiness existed. Without any particular religion influenced the mind of the early Chinese people, they mysteriously possessed ideas of a utopia paradise in the west (Garden of Eden), a supreme deity (God) ruling heaven and earth, a heavenly empire (Kingdom of God) in the sky, and obedience to the mandate of heaven (Will of God). How did early people in China invent such profound concepts without any religion? The truth is they didn't.
The above concepts of the early Chinese people suggested that they had a forgotten past in the land of the Bible. I believe some of the other children from the line of Seth and Shem as mentioned in the genealogy in Genesis 5:1-32 and 11:10-26 had reached antediluvian and postdiluvian China. Who else would know these things better than the believers of Yahweh who came from the biblical land?
The other sons and daughters from the line of Seth in 5:1-32 were one of the earliest ancestors of early tribes in the antediluvian China. The early nomads that arrived in China would be small as human population in the antediluvian world of the Bible was concentrated in the Ancient Near East. Unfortunately, the Deluge sent down by God destroyed all mankind, thus, evidences of their existence were all wiped out from the face of China. Thus, this book focuses on the children from the line of Shem to be the sole messengers of Yahweh that had wandered eastward to China and seeded the idea of monotheism there.
After the Deluge, Noah and his three sons: Shem, Japheth and Ham repopulated the world. They became the second wave of migrants and ancestors in the postdiluvian China. Children from the line of Shem were faithful believers of Yahweh. They were the ones who spread the knowledge of God and the stories happened in the early chapters in the Book of Genesis.
The Bible tells us mankind began in the Garden of Eden somewhere in ancient Iraq. From there, mankind dispersed all over the world. As Christian we don't doubt or refute this truth because we believe every word right from the beginning story of the Bible. There is no compromise-period.
To Christians, the origin of mankind is a biblical origin. No amount of scientific and archaeological evidences could change this truth. Christians must either accept the creation of man as is in the Bible or change their religion. This book leans on the truth of the Bible that mankind spread all over the world from the biblical land. Chinese Christians must believe the earliest ancestors of Chinese people came from the biblical land where mankind begun. It is biblical truth which Christians must stop shuffle under the carpet anymore.
I am shocked by some of my Christian friends who believe Darwin's evolution theory that man was evolved from ape. How could they be so confused? Did God create Adam an ape or a man? How could these people still think they're a Christian when they compromised the truth of the Bible?
Influenced by the popularity of Darwin evolution theory, China promotes Chinese people were evolved from the Peking Man (unearthed in Zhoukoudian near Beijing in 1929) dated 500,000-700,000 years ago. Chinese people were told mankind was evolved from ape. However, Chinese archaeologists couldn’t explain which kind of ape did the Chinese evolve from: was it Mongoloid, Caucasian or Negro ape? Had anyone thought why apes in China evolved into Mongoloid Chinese and not Caucasian or Negro?
Darwin ape to man evolution theory is a radical western idea. It is ironic that China has such alacrity to embrace Darwin theory without her normal harsh and belligerent scrutiny of western ideas.
This book explores the obscure footprints left behind by the believers of Yahweh who had migrated to antediluvian and postdiluvian China. They were the other sons and daughters from the line of Seth and Shem mentioned in the genealogy in Genesis 5:1-32 and 11:10-26. They and their descendants were the ones who spread and passed down the stories of Genesis creation, Adam and Eve, Garden of Eden, Satan, the Deluge, Tower of Babel, and the idea of monotheism to the early people in China. This were how early Chinese people possessed the knowledge of a supreme deity called Shang-Ti, the heavenly empire (Heaven), and the mandate of heaven (the Will of God).
The impact of the migrated other children from the line of Seth and Shem to the antediluvian and postdiluvian China had instilled the mind of early Chinese people with the idea of virtue, righteousness, and love for one another. Their spreading of a loving and righteous God had raised the level of moral awareness and social decorum in early Chinese society.
Great figures such as Yellow Emperor was a righteous warrior king and the three renowned emperor Yao, Shun, and Yu were benevolent emperors in the legendary history of China. They possessed extraordinary character of virtue and righteousness. How could they become the paragon of exceptional virtuous men in a still untamed world of barbarism and lawlessness in prehistoric China? Were they born with special noble genes of morality or were they influenced by the children from the line of Shem who spread their faith of a loving and righteous God?
The Bible tells us mankind is originated from ancient Near East. Adam and Eve were the first human couple. Their descendants diverse into three types of races: Negro, Caucasian, and Mongoloid. I believe majority of the Mongoloid people had departed the biblical land and journeyed to the East long before the authors of the Bible could trace them. Mongoloid people dominated East Asia. Due to the long isolation from the rest of the world by mountainous terrains and deserts, their posterity had totally forgotten their biblical origin. This book hopes to reconnect them to the divine heritage of the Bible.
The theory presented in this book is my opinion. This is my personal quest for revelation of the biblical origin of Chinese people. Reader should read this book with an open mind.
After I converted to Christian in 1993, I was extremely curious to know the biblical origin of Chinese people. My urge to find an answer for this question became very personal and very addictive. Since then researching and writing about this topic became my personal mission.
It took me many years to write and rewrite this book. By the time I completed this book, I was exhausted after many years of struggling with long hours of writing, rewriting, research, and finding means to put food on the table. I am grateful to God for sustaining my will to keep me writing.
I pray that this book can arouse the interest of Christians and non-Christians in all over the world to search the Bible as a credible source for the origin of their ancestors where Chinese people also share the divine heritage of the Bible.
This book will not prove the migrated children from the line of Seth and Shem had reached early China by scientific or archaeological evidences. The author will let the reader determines if he or she agrees with the things said in this book. Agreement or disagreement is not important; what is importance is that we Christians must have an open and tolerant mind.
Even though this book is completed, however, my research for more evidences in this subject continues. I welcome readers to contact me by email: email@example.com if you wish to share your thought in this subject with me. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoy writing it.
