Cain and AbelThe period I am interested in is the time when no Bible was written. The New Testament was written 2000 years ago and the Old Testament was written even earlier. Approximately about 1500-400 BC.
My analysis of the Chinese characters is based on the fact that there were information in the world about what had happened even before the Bible was written. This information was at that time carved into the old charaters of the religious Chinese people.
When I make comparisons with the Bible, I do it because I believe the Bible tells the truth about human history. The fact that the Chinese characters independently of the Bible tell the same story is nothing strange in itself. It just confirm the Bible.
We have in the two previous articles seen on Chinese characters that seem to originate in the story of Adam and Eve. Just as Adam and Eve seem to have got own Chinese characters it also looks as if their first son, Cain might have got one.
According to the Bible, Cain was the first son of Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve had never before seen a child. They had not themselves been children but both had been created as adults.
Could it be that Adam and Eve believed their newborn son to be the promised seed of the woman? Could it be that instead of being parents they worshipped him? Could it be that their first son took the place in their hearts that only God had had before?
In any case, because of different reasons Cain killed his little brother Abel.
After this madness Cain became afraid and prayed to God for strength. God answered his prayer, and put a mark on him so no one would kill him.
All this is recorded in the Chinese characters. The sign for MURDERER not only looks like the sign of ELDER BROTHER. In Chinese, these two characters are pronounced in exactly the same way.
Cain that was the ELDER BROTHER of Abel also was the first MURDERER of humanity.
The only difference between these two Chinese characters is the cross in the character for MURDERER. This cross is also a Chinese character that amazingly have the meaning PACIFY or STABILIZY.
So now when we know how the mark of Cain looked like, I ask this question. Could this cross-shaped mark, possibly also be a sign of the future cross where the son of God would once die? Not just to reconcile crimes as murder but also to die for all of the sins of the world.
The mark of Cain was given by God and could have had the shape of a cross. In any case that mark looks like that in the old Chinese characters.
