Seisho no shomei - Books of the Bible in Japanese

In this article we bring you the books of the Bible in Japanese language, which are called “Seisho no Shomei” [聖書の署名]. See how the names of the books of the Bible in Japanese are interesting and completely different from Portuguese.

Even if you are an atheist, or a non-Christian, we notice an importance of reading such an article. With the list of Bible books below you will see differences and improve your Japanese language learning.

We can notice the use of Katakana for names of people and nations. Even if it is not in the table, remember that books with the name of nations use the “jin” [人]. Example: Romans in Japanese and roomajin [ローマ人].
