olive branch 橄欖枝 (創世記8:11)

圖片說明: Olive
圖片版權: V.

聖經經文

意思

橄欖枝成為了和平與復和的標志。

來源及應用

在挪亞的時代,上帝降下了一場持續了四十天的大洪水摧毀了所有沒有和挪亞一起躲進方舟中的生靈。又過了一百五十天,大水仍沒有退去。挪亞先是放出了一只烏鴉去試探水位的高低。烏鴉飛來飛去也找不到一根落腳的樹枝。接著諾亞又放出了一只鴿子,鴿子同樣找不到一根落腳的樹枝。七天后,挪亞再一次放出鴿子,這次鴿子帶回了橄欖枝。這是個家喻戶曉的故事,橄欖枝后來亦成為了和平與復和的標志。因為它昭示著洪水之后,上帝與人類修復關系。 在瑞典的諾貝爾獎博物館中,諾貝爾和平獎的標志就以橄欖枝代表。
