Has anyone heard Christianity might have reached China in the first century

I heard something about this a few months ago and it never came up again. I thought Christianity didn't read China until the 15th century, but from I over heard there is evidence it might have been there sooner.

know anything about this?

  • never heard that before. i have heard that Jesus went to China in his 20's & "stole" ideas from Buddhism...but never anything about Christianity reaching China that early.

  • Well, you can see the gospel story in many of their ancient pictographs. But I believe that goes back to a Hebrew influence about 5,000 years ago. I will look into it for you but DH needs the computer in a second so I can't do it right now.
