Chinese character for a boat

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 6:33 am

The Chinese character for a boat combines vessel with person and the number 8. There were 8 persons in Noah’s ark.


Here is a simple illustration of the Chinese language’s testimony to the events in the book of Genesis.  The Chinese word for boat is made up of three component radicals.

The left most character means “ship” or “vessel.”

The upper righthand character is the Chinese number “eight.”

The bottom righthand character is the word for “mouth” or “person.”  

The first boat mentioned in the Bible is Noah’s ark.   Just how many people or “mouths” were aboard this ship or vessel?   Genesis 7:13 tells us: “In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark.”  So Noah’s ark was a ship or a vessel with eight people.  Yet the Chinese language — predating the Hebrew in which the Old Testament was written by at least 700 years — records this fact in perfect detail.
