野のユリとはどんな花だったのか

ギリシア語の krinia とはどんな花だったのか。いろんな説があるけど。

The lilies (Gr. krinia) spoken of in the New Testament ( Matthew 6:28 ; Luke 12:27 ) were probably the scarlet martagon (Lilium Chalcedonicum) or "red Turk's-cap lily", which "comes into flower at the season of the year when our Lord's sermon on the mount is supposed to have been delivered. It is abundant in the district of Galilee; and its fine scarlet flowers render it a very conspicous and showy object, which would naturally attract the attention of the hearers" (Balfour's Plants of the Bible).

でも、まあいいや。

 

自分にとっては、夏の日に、凛と咲いてる野生の野の真っ白なユリを見るたびに、クリスチャンではない自分でもこの聖書の言葉を思い出す。きっとそれが、自分の「野のユリ」なんだな。
