      Evidence suggests Christianity reached China in the first century.

      That Christianity reached China by the end of the first century has
      long been dismissed as a myth. Now, says the Chinese People's Daily,
      evidence suggests it really happened. Wang Weifan from Jinling
      Seminary says tombstone carvings from about a.d. 86 depict Bible
      stories and Christian designs. "Somebody certainly was taking the
      Great Commission rather seriously," says Ralph Covell, senior
      professor of world Christianity at Denver Seminary. Though this
      discovery may reset the date of Christianity's arrival by 550 years,
      Covell notes that the a.d. 635 meeting between Nestorian Christian
      Alopen and Chinese emperor T'ang T'ai Tsung had much greater influence

      For more information and to see a picture of the tombstone carvings,
