I have been reading a book on the evolution of the Chinese language from pictograms to the script we have today.
The number 5 (五) in Mandarin was originally written as a Cross between two lines. When I saw that, u was pretty gobsmacked.
We know 5 biblically represents grace or HESED.
What I saw in the orig Mandarin pictogram for 5 is:
Because of the grace of our Abba Father, the Word became flesh as LORD Jesus Christ & descended from Heaven to Earth to die for us on the Cross. 🙂

Worthy is the Holy Lamb of God, hallelujah!
