The eleventh hour最後一刻(馬太福音 20:6)

圖片說明: Parable
圖片版權: V.

聖經經文

“He went out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour and did the same thing. About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?” (Matthew 20:6) 約在酉初出去、看見還有人站在那裡。就問他們說、你們為甚麼整天在這裡閒站呢。(馬太福音 20:6)

意思

eleventh hour解作最後一刻。

來源及應用

這個習語源于耶穌教導信徒時所說的一個寓言。有一天,一個地主早早地出門去請勞工為自己的葡萄園工作。他們達成協議,工作一天得一便士。在那天還剩下最后一個鐘時,地主在外面看到一些在附近閑逛的人們,他又決定僱用他們。雖然那些人在最后一刻才來工作,但是他們也跟早早開工的勞工一樣得到一便士的薪金。 這個故事有多個解釋。其中一個解釋是,是那些只會在意收獲的人們是不會得到賞識的。換句話來說,因為那些在最后一刻才來工作的人在意的是工作的機會,而不是工作的獎賞,他們的心意受到賞識,所以他們也能得到同樣回報。 另一個說法是,無論你是什么時候歸信基督,你都可得享天國的福分。
