馬丁‧路德徽章
The Luther Rose
The Luther Seal

Image
  這一顆徽章是馬丁路德在威登堡大學任教時設計的,從這裡可以看出路德神學思想的大概。下面這段解釋,是從他寫給一個朋友的信中摘譯而來…
 
  表現在這徽章中的第一個圖像,就是那黑色的十字架,這十字架放在一顆紅色的心裡面,是要我們記得:「我們得救是因相信釘十字架的基督。」「因為人心裡相信就可以稱義。」十字架雖是黑色的,是致人於死的,是使人痛苦的,但它並不改變心的顏色,也不破壞自然,那就是說,它不是叫人死,乃是叫人活。因為義人必因信得生。
  
  所謂信,就是相信耶穌。但這顆心是放在一朵白色玫瑰的中心,表明信心產生喜樂、安慰和平安。玫瑰是白色而非紅色,因為白色是諸天使和天上諸靈的理想顏色。

  其次,這朵玫瑰是安置在一天藍色的底上,表明這種屬靈的信心的喜樂只是那未來喜樂的信物和開端;那未來的喜樂雖尚未顯露,但藉著盼望可以預見,可以把握。

  在藍底的周圍鑲著一道金色的圓圈,表明這種天上的福樂是無止盡的,並且比一切的福樂和財寶更為寶貴,因為金子是最好且最寶貴的金屬,我們親愛的主基督,會賜給我們永生的恩典。阿們。

The Luther Rose
 
     The Luther Rose, also known as the Luther Seal, is easily the most recognized symbol for Lutheranism, and for good reason. Martin Luther personally oversaw the creation of this symbol. It provides a beautiful summary of his faith, a faith that is common to all Christians, of every place and every time. Here is how Luther explained the meaning of his seal:


     "Grace and peace from the Lord. As you desire to know whether my painted seal, which you sent to me, has hit the mark, I shall answer most amiably and tell you my original thoughts and reason about why my seal is a symbol of my theology. The first should be a black cross in a heart, which retains its natural color, so that I myself would be reminded that faith in the Crucified saves us. For one who believes from the heart will be justified" (Rom. 10:10). Although it is indeed a black cross, which mortifies and which should also cause pain, it leaves the heart in its natural color. It does not corrupt nature, that is, it does not kill but keeps alive. "The just shall live by faith" (Rom. 1:17) but by faith in the crucified. Such a heart should stand in the middle of a white rose, to show that faith gives joy, comfort, and peace. In other words, it places the believer into a white, joyous rose, for this faith does not give peace and joy like the world gives (John 14:27). That is why the rose should be white and not red, for white is the color of the spirits and the angels (cf. Matthew 28:3; John 20:12). Such a rose should stand in a sky-blue field, symbolizing that such joy in spirit and faith is a beginning of the heavenly future joy, which begins already, but is grasped in hope, not yet revealed. And around this field is a golden ring, symbolizing that such blessedness in Heaven lasts forever and has no end. Such blessedness is exquisite, beyond all joy and goods, just as gold is the most valuable, most precious and best metal.This is my compendium theoligae [summary of theology]. I have wanted to show it to you in good friendship, hoping for your appreciation. May Christ, our beloved Lord, be with your spirit until the life hereafter. Amen." *
