十字架的標誌

  只誇我們主耶穌的十字架

」(加614a

  十字是人類最古老的記號之一。在許多古老文化中,都被發現刻在石頭上。例如中文的數字「十」,加法的符號,埃及的哥普特人十字等等。但真正引人注意的,乃是被视為基督信仰的標誌。

  最早聖經申命記21章提到,被掛在樹木上的刑罰。但有歷史記載十字架的刑罰,是主前479年,希臘歷史學家赫若都德記載,波斯的一位將軍被釘在十字型的木板上。希臘亞歷山大大帝,曾經釘死過兩千個俘虜,在泰瑞戰役之後。真正發揚光大十字架刑罰的是羅馬人。在第一世紀前後,只有對叛國賊,江洋大盜,敵人才會使用這種極其殘忍的刑罰。通常將犯人雙手釘在一條橫木頭上掛起來,然後再把腳釘在直木頭上。犯人不會馬上死去,要經過三四天的折騰,最後痛苦不再有力氣撐起胸來呼吸,才逐漸死去。同時犯人是赤身露體,展覽給過路的人,以茲警告。

  事實上最早的基督徒並沒有用十字架作信仰的記號。他們喜歡用希臘文「魚」ιχθυς這個字,因為那正好是「耶穌基督神兒子救主」五個字的簡寫。基督徒彼此見面時,在手上畫一條魚來表示。到第二世紀時,許多基督徒受到迫害,被釘死在十字架上,才逐漸成為主耶穌殉道的標記。當然那也很合適的表示,基督徒的老我是與基督同釘十字架,新我與基督一同復活(加220)。

  我們看見教堂屋頂上十字架,那代表聖潔;救護車上十字架,那代表拯救;墓園中十字架,那代表安息;禮物項鏈上十字架,那代表愛情。但是兩千年前,十字架代表的是污穢,死亡,恐懼和仇恨。是什麼事件使十字架的意義完全的改變了呢?一定在歷史中有件大事和這可怕的刑具有關。當然,那是因為基督耶穌曾經被釘死在十字架上。祂的聖潔,拯救平安和愛,也能臨到今天所有跟隨祂的人。

 The Symbol of Cross

  “May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Gal. 6:14a)

   The cross is one of the oldest symbols in history.  In many ancient cultures, we can find the cross carved in the stone.  In the Chinese language, the number Ten is a cross.  In Egypt, the Coptics used the cross as a sign of deity.  But the most notable usage of cross is the symbol used by Christians.

   In Deuteronomy 21:22, it is recorded that capital punishment was by hanging on a tree.  The Greek historian Herodotus wrote in 479 BC, that a Persian general was hung on the cross by nailing him on a plank.  Alexander the Great is reputed to have crucified over 2000 survivors from his siege of the city Tyre.  The Roman government truly expanded the usage of the cross.  Around the first century, it became a common practice to punish the enemies of state, pirates, and slaves by crucifixion.  The criminal’s hands were nailed to a wooden plank then were pulled up to a vertical plank and then the feet were nailed to the plank.  The criminals did not die right away.  They would suffer for three or four days, until they did not have enough strength to raise their body to breathe their last breath from the chest.  Criminal were hung naked in order to humiliate them and shock others as a warning. 

   In fact, the early Christians did not use the cross as a symbol of faith.  They would rather use the Greek word (ἰχθύς) for “fish”.  Because the five letters symbolize the sentence “Jesus Christ God’s son, Saviour.”  When they met each other, they opened their hands to show a symbol of fish.  Until the second century, many Christians were persecuted and crucified on the cross, did it gradually become a symbol of martyrdom.  Of course, it is an appropriate sign, because Christians’ old-self should be crucified with Christ, so that the new-self can be resurrected with Christ. (Gal. 2:20)

  Today, we see a cross on the roof of a church and say it is a symbol of purity.  We see cross on the door of an ambulance and say it is a symbol of rescue.  We see a cross in the cemetery and say it is a symbol of rest.  We see cross on a necklace and say it is a symbol of love.  However, around two thousand years ago, the symbol of the cross meant filth, death, fear and hatred.  What made the meaning of the cross change?  Something must have happened in history, associated with this terrible form of punishment.  Of course, it was Jesus Christ who died on the cross.  It is His purity, salvation, peace and love which can still be received by those who accept Him as Saviour and follow Him.
