Jerusalem of the East
소개글"A" Research Paper / Persecution of Christianity in North Korea
본문내용North Korea, for nine years in a row, has ranked first in ‘2011 World Watch List’ among the top fifty Christianity Persecution countries (Open Doors). Actually, the Western religions, such as Protestant and Catholic, were introduced into North side first. The Pyongyang Great Revival (1907-1910), which started at Jang Dae Hyun Church, was the key springboard of Korean Christianity and churches (Park, Yong Gyu). The revival had added five hundreds to the church and twenty-five hundred churches sprang up in Pyongyang North Korea (Backholer), and the present North Korean capital, was even called “Jerusalem of the East” (Clark 121-125). What is the reality of that Jerusalem, today in North Korea, while South Korea has a huge Christian population?
