那兩個強盜是誰? - 古德明

Thomas Killigrew, a 17th-century English dramatist and playhouse manager who was better known for his wit than for his plays, was the Master of the Revels to Charles Ⅱ. He once visited Louis ⅩⅣ in Paris, and the French monarch showed him his pictures. He finally pointed out to him a picture of the Crucifixion between two portraits.
"That on the right," said his Majesty, "is the Pope, and that on the left is myself."
"I humbly thank you, your Majesty," replied the English court jester, "for the information; for though I have often heard that the Lord was crucified between two thieves,* I never knew who they were till now."
湯瑪斯.基利格魯是十七世紀英國劇作家兼戲院經理,但他最為人樂道的,不是其戲劇,而是其詼謔。他還是查理二世的王室節慶典禮官。有一次,他到巴黎,拜謁法王路易十四。路易十四帶他參觀宮中藏畫,最後給他看一幅耶穌釘十字架圖。左右兩邊是兩幅畫像。
路易十四說:「右邊那幅,畫的是教宗;左邊那幅,畫的是我。」
那個英國王室弄臣說:「陛下,承蒙賜告,非常感謝。我常常聽到人說,主耶穌給釘在兩個強盜之間*,但現在才知道那兩個強盜是誰。」
*《聖經.馬太福音》第二十七章記述耶穌釘十字架的情況:「有兩個強盜,和他一起,給釘在十字架上,一個在右,一個在左。」
