十字架
Cross

十字架是基督教最重要的標記,代表著上主犧牲的愛。用來釘死耶穌的十字架,是一世紀佔領著聖地的羅馬人所用的酷刑。根據新約記載,耶穌的死和復活讓我們的罪得赦免、與神和好(羅馬書五8),而十字架亦因此轉化成生命與愛的標記。

The cross is the ultimate symbol of Christian faith, communicating the sacrificial love of God. The cross Jesus died on was an instrument of torture used by the Romans occupying the first-century Holy Land. According to the New Testament, Jesus’ death and resurrection made it possible for us to receive forgiveness of our sins and reconciliation with God (Romans 5:8). The cross is thus transformed into a symbol of life and love.
