バイブルクラスがおこなわれました


Bible class on Saturday April 18th,2015

 

この日の聖書の箇所は、マタイによる福音書26章の1節から21節です。またこの日は初参加のご夫婦が加わり、5名の出席で御言葉・The Messageを学びました。

 

26章では、いよいよイエスの十字架の時は間近に迫って来ます。この章の冒頭でも主は自らの十字架刑をより具体的に弟子たちに告げています。"You know that Passover comes in two days. That's when the Son of Man will be betrayed and handed over for crucifixion." 2日後に来る過越祭。それは磔刑のためにキリストが裏切られてわたされる時である。」

この言葉を聴いた弟子たちの反応は聖書には記されていませんが、おそらくこれまでのイエスの十字架予告の時と同様に、弟子たちは大きな危機がすぐそこまで迫っていることを理解していないようです。

今日の学んだ箇所の小見出の一つがAnointed for Burial「埋葬のため油を注がれる」、もう一つがThe Traitor「裏切り者」となっていました。後者の見出しTraitor「裏切り者」はレオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチの絵画でも有名な「最後の晩餐」の場面ですが、今日の例会の当番の方のお薦めと参加者の話し合いの話題として、「イエスに高価な香油を塗ったのは誰か?」で盛り上がりました。聖書にはa woman came up to him as he was eating dinner and anointed him with a bottle of very expensive perfume.:「一人の女がイエスに近づいていき、食事をとられていたイエスに非常に高価な香油を塗った。」とだけしか記されておらず、その香油を塗った女の名前はわかりません。今回の話し合いの結論だけ記しますと、「イエスに香油を塗ったのは、イエスを一所懸命にもてなしたマルタの妹のマリアではないか?」でした。

その他にも、自らのミッションの遂行の中にある死を予告したイエスに通じる人物として、アメリカ公民権運動のリーダーであり"I HAVE A DREAM"の演説で有名なキング牧師やJ.Fケネディーについても話題が広がりました。

 

Matthew 26 The Message (MSG)

Anointed for Burial

26 1-2 When Jesus finished saying these things, he told his disciples, "You know that Passover comes in two days. That's when the Son of Man will be betrayed and handed over for crucifixion."

3-5 At that very moment, the party of high priests and religious leaders was meeting in the chambers of the Chief Priest named Caiaphas, conspiring to seize Jesus by stealth and kill him. They agreed that it should not be done during Passover Week. "We don't want a riot on our hands," they said.

6-9 When Jesus was at Bethany, a guest of Simon the Leper, a woman came up to him as he was eating dinner and anointed him with a bottle of very expensive perfume. When the disciples saw what was happening, they were furious. "That's criminal! This could have been sold for a lot and the money handed out to the poor."

10-13 When Jesus realized what was going on, he intervened. "Why are you giving this woman a hard time? She has just done something wonderfully significant for me. You will have the poor with you every day for the rest of your lives, but not me. When she poured this perfume on my body, what she really did was anoint me for burial. You can be sure that wherever in the whole world the Message is preached, what she has just done is going to be remembered and admired."

14-16 That is when one of the Twelve, the one named Judas Iscariot, went to the cabal of high priests and said, "What will you give me if I hand him over to you?" They settled on thirty silver pieces. He began looking for just the right moment to hand him over.

The Traitor

17 On the first of the Days of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and said, "Where do you want us to prepare your Passover meal?"

18-19 He said, "Enter the city. Go up to a certain man and say, 'The Teacher says, My time is near. I and my disciples plan to celebrate the Passover meal at your house.'" The disciples followed Jesus' instructions to the letter, and prepared the Passover meal.

20-21 After sunset, he and the Twelve were sitting around the table. During the meal, he said, "I have something hard but important to say to you: One of you is going to hand me over to the conspirators."
