In this article we bring you the Japanese Bible books that 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 though it is not in the table, remember that books that have the name of nations are used jin [人]. Example: Romans, in Japanese and roomajin [ローマ人].

Thank you for reading this article. The Japanese Bible is a very complex book and full of complex words that we do not know, if you are interested, I recommend it as a good book to improve your nihongo.

The video below shows a little about the Bible in Japanese and the writings. Finally, I also invite you to read our other article that talks about Japanese religious terms and vocabularies.
