The Jesuits understood that an European Jesus wouldn’t work in China
About 20 years ago I was attending the Divinity School connected to Silliman University. One day I dropped into the pastors office while they were doing a little spring cleaning. I looked in an old shoe box and found 17 black and white post cardish photos. Seems that the JESUITS had decided to use a traditional Chinese Jesus to help with the conversion attempt in China. They also used traditional Chinese characters to portray various biblical characters. I quickly headed over to the office of the same fellow that just built my computer and he put them all on disc. Doing a bit of my own spring cleaning today I found the disc. This shot is the Easter shot.
