Kacinpoint A few words about the word "righteousness."
First, it doesn't exist in the Spanish language. It is translated "justicia."
Secondly, in Chinese the character for righteousness is 義 ?
This word is made by combining two words, by placing the word for "lamb" over the word for "me".
羊 + 我 = 義
lamb + me = righteousness
Thus the word reveals the truth of how someone can be made righteous in the sight of God. It is the lamb covering over me that makes me righteous! A native of China said the word shown for lamb is more accurately rendered "wounded lamb."
In a similar vein, Max Lucado's book on Grace says that the Hebrew word for "grace" is the picture of a lamb over man.
