Genesis in Ancient China: The Creation Story in China's Earliest Script, by Dr. Ginger Tong Chock, is a biblical narration of the Creation story by way of China’s earliest script. Dated to 3500 years ago, these “oracle bone script” or “graphs” represent the beginnings of China’s present day writing system. They precede the time of Daoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism. Excavated only a century ago, at least 1100 of these graphs are identified with their modern day characters. In their earliest pictographic forms, many appear to depict scenes and ideas known in the Book of Genesis. At least forty graphs depict key scenes of the Genesis Creation narrative.
These "Genesis graphs", document an ancient origin history that corresponds with the verses from Genesis 1-3. In effect, they give historical evidence that the Creation Story was known in ancient China when her first writing system was invented. Here we find that the recorded name of the God ShangDi was in truth, the same God of Genesis.
The forty graphs presented in Genesis in Ancient China, follow the narrative sequence of Genesis 1:1 to 3:24, beginning with the creation of the universe to man’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Each graph is presented with visual explanations of how its constructed parts depict its meaning, and ultimately, its Genesis related meaning. As Chinese writing’s earliest form, they represent the graph’s original meaning as intended by its inventor. Additionally, supporting evidence is cited from other comparative graphs, legendary history, mythology, the early Classics, and early Confucian thought.
Each graph is summarized in an easy to follow visual and analyzed format that deconstructs and reconstructs its formation for logical understanding. This also provides the reader with an easy way to share with others this ancient Chinese depiction of the Creation story.
