バイブルクラスが行われました


Bible class on Saturday February 6,2016


今日のバイブルクラスも出席3名でした。

聖書はルカ福音書の9章の2回目で、20節から40節を学びました。

The Messageに記された小見出しはDon't Run from Suffering「苦難から逃げるな」とJesus in His Glory「栄光に輝くイエス」の個所です。

また今日は併読しているもう一つの聖書The Voice9章のコメンタリー部分についても、みなさんの解釈についての意見を述べ合いました。

In this section of Luke, Jesus is working hard with the disciples. They have a lot to learn and not much time left to learn it. But their "not-getting-it factor" is quite amazing. Luke's tone betrays him shaking his head and chuckling as he writes, thinking about how foolish the disciples can be at times. And, of course, he's probably thinking of himself too . . . just as he hopes his readers will when they read about the stupid things the disciples say and do--one moment seeing and hearing glorious things, the next moment missing the point entirely.

上記のThe Voiceのコメンタリーは27節と28節の間に置かれていて、福音書の中のイエスを神の子・メシアと告白した弟子ペテロ、その直後に十字架の死と復活を予告するイエスと共に山頂で栄光に包まれ輝くモーセ、エリヤ、イエスの三人が語り合う場面の中間に位置されています。そしてこのコメンタリーの意図は、まだまだ未熟な弟子たちの現状を評しています。地上におけるイエスから弟子たちが教えを授ける時間はどんどんなくなって行っているのでした。おそらく弟子たちはイエスから受難の予告を直に聴きながらもよく理解できていなかったことが窺えます。

そのイエスの言葉の意味をよく理解できない代表的な弟子がペテロであり、御言葉の中に端的に著されています。

20節のイエスの「自分は何者であるか?」の質問に対し、ペテロは「あなたこそ神の子・救い主」とついさっき答えておきながら、33節では、...「先生、これは非常に素晴らしい瞬間です。記念に三つの館を建てましょう。一つはあなたのために、もう一つはモーセのために、もう一つはエリヤのために。」と訳の分からないことをつい口にしてしまうペテロ。聖書には直後に「彼(ペテロ)は考えることなく口にした。」とあります。栄光に包まれたイエスを含む三人の輝く姿を見た感激からか、三人を同じ"人格"に受けとめてしまい口にしたペテロでした。

ただ、当時の多くの人もイエスを「洗礼者ヨハネの生まれ変わり」と云ったり、「大預言者エリヤが天から帰ってきた。」と云ったりしていた記述が福音書の中に数々ありますから、ペテロの言動もあながち無理からぬことだったかもしれません。

また、今日の学びの中にあるモーセ、エリヤそしてイエスの姿がそろう場面は、マタイ517節「わたしが来たのは律法や預言者を廃棄するためだと思ってはなりません。廃棄するためにではなく、成就するために来たのです。」のみ言葉の成就の象徴ではないかとの意見もありました。


20-21 He then asked, "And you--what are you saying about me? Who am I?"

Peter answered, "The Messiah of God." Jesus then warned them to keep it quiet. They were to tell no one what Peter had said.

22 He went on, "It is necessary that the Son of Man proceed to an ordeal of suffering, be tried and found guilty by the religious leaders, high priests, and religion scholars, be killed, and on the third day be raised up alive."

23-27 Then he told them what they could expect for themselves: "Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You're not in the driver's seat--I am. Don't run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I'll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? If any of you is embarrassed with me and the way I'm leading you, know that the Son of Man will be far more embarrassed with you when he arrives in all his splendor in company with the Father and the holy angels. This isn't, you realize, pie in the sky by and by. Some who have taken their stand right here are going to see it happen, see with their own eyes the kingdom of God."

Jesus in His Glory

28-31 About eight days after saying this, he climbed the mountain to pray, taking Peter, John, and James along. While he was in prayer, the appearance of his face changed and his clothes became blinding white. At once two men were there talking with him. They turned out to be Moses and Elijah--and what a glorious appearance they made! They talked over his exodus, the one Jesus was about to complete in Jerusalem.

32-33 Meanwhile, Peter and those with him were slumped over in sleep. When they came to, rubbing their eyes, they saw Jesus in his glory and the two men standing with him. When Moses and Elijah had left, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, this is a great moment! Let's build three memorials: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." He blurted this out without thinking.

34-35 While he was babbling on like this, a light-radiant cloud enveloped them. As they found themselves buried in the cloud, they became deeply aware of God. Then there was a voice out of the cloud: "This is my Son, the Chosen! Listen to him."

36 When the sound of the voice died away, they saw Jesus there alone. They were speechless. And they continued speechless, said not one thing to anyone during those days of what they had seen.

37-40 When they came down off the mountain the next day, a big crowd was there to meet them. A man called from out of the crowd, "Please, please, Teacher, take a look at my son. He's my only child. Often a spirit seizes him. Suddenly he's screaming, thrown into convulsions, his mouth foaming. And then it beats him black-and-blue before it leaves. I asked your disciples to deliver him but they couldn't."
