Hudson Taylor’s Gospel Lesson

Hudson Taylor served as a missionary to China in the 1800s. Many of his listeners had never heard the gospel, so Taylor used the characters in Chinese writing to teach Bible stories.

Taylor illustrated the story of Christ’s death on the cross with the Chinese character for the word “come.” The character has a cross in the middle. Jesus was crucified between two men. On either side of the cross in “come,” there is a character for the word “man.” Can you see the characters?
