《星球大戰》的隱藏信息-H

H: Han Solo & Chewbacca / 宇宙過客

漢蘇盧(Han Solo)與丘巴卡(Chewbacca)在《星球大戰》電影中是一對最佳搭檔,他們常常出生入死,駕駛「千歲鷹號」太空船(Millennium Falcon)穿梭浩瀚的宇宙。漢蘇盧和丘巴卡像《水滸傳》中的林沖與魯智深:一個有勇有謀,一個力大無窮;這類互補不足的角色設計,能發展出引人入勝的故事情節。
然而真實的人生旅程,可能比起電影故事更加驚心動魄。使徒保羅和巴拿巴在第一次佈道旅程時,到了路司得城(使14章)。他們在那裡傳講福音,並施行神蹟,叫瘸子能站起來。當地眾民以為他們是天神下凡,稱他們為丟斯(宙斯)和希耳米。原來在希臘神話中,丟斯和希耳米兩位神祇打扮成農民到了路司得城,可是全市無人願意接待過路客,只有一對窮夫婦邀請他們留宿,結果兩位天神把整個城市毀滅,只留下這對夫婦一家。

神話故事的意義是教導聽眾發揮愛心、幫助他人,可惜流傳下來卻變成了民間信仰。保羅藉此教訓眾人要離棄虛妄的神話傳說,接受真正的福音;因為只有耶穌才是惟一降臨地上的大能者,祂來了不是為了毀滅,而是叫一切信祂的,不至滅亡,反得永生。(參約3:16)

「盜賊來,無非要偷竊、殺害、毀壞;我來了,是要叫羊(或作:人)得生命,並且得的更豐盛。」(約10:10)

H: Han Solo & Chewbacca

Han Solo and Chewbacca are the best of partners in Star Wars. They travelled the vast universe in their spaceship called “Millennium Falcon” braving dangerous missions together. These partners are the mirror image of the outlaw characters, Lin Chong and Lu Zhishen, in the Water Margin (one of the four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature): One is brave and clever while the other is super strong. These mismatch pairs are designed to enhance the individual complexities in the character”s own stories.

Unlike in the movies, reality is far more eventful and terrifying. When Apostle Paul and Barnabas went on their first mission trip to Lystra (Acts 14), they not only preached the gospel but also performed a miracle – telling a lame person to stand up. The crowd thought they were gods in a human form and even called them Zeus and Hermes. According to Greek mythology, Zeus and Hermes visited Lystra disguised as farmers. However, no one in the region except for an elderly couple would welcome them into their home. In the end, all of Lystra was destroyed sparing the life of the elderly couple.

The moral behind this myth is to teach people about love and helping others. However, the destruction of Lystra was just a mere folklore. Using this story as an example and grasping this opportunity, Paul taught the crowd a lesson about leaving false mythology behind and receiving the true gospel: Jesus was the true living God who had descended onto earth and Jesus came to save, not to destroy. “For those who believe in Him, they will not perish but will have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

“The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come so they may have life, and have it to the fullest.” (John 10:10)
