バイブルクラスが行われました

 

今日のバイブルクラスは「定例メンバー」3名でした。

ルカ11章の後半を学びました。

この個所では相当にイエスの語り口調は攻撃的です。

Frauds! イエスはパリサイ人の家に食事に招待されている身にもかかわらず、その席にいるパリサイ人や宗教学者たちに面と向かって「詐欺士め!」云い放ちます。

"you Pharisees"イエスの云い方、「おめ~らパリサイ人ら!」は、ハッキリ言って相当に汚い言葉です。さらに立て続けに2度もYou're hopeless, you Pharisees! Frauds!「救いようのない詐欺師め!」と一層過激になります。

わざわざ危険極まりないパリサイ人の家で彼らと食卓を囲んだイエスの意図は何だったのでしょうか。

 

先回のバイブルクラスでメンバーからSerendipity Bible for Study Gropesという聖書のグループ学習のための参考書を紹介されました。

聖書全巻にわたってそれぞれのポイント個所を共に学ぶメンバーとともに意見交換しながらより理解を深めるために、単に読んで学ぶ注解書ではなく、それぞれの聖句の受け止め方や考え方を議論し合うツールです。そして内容はいたってシンプルで神学書のような難解な言葉はなく、聖書に関心のある人であればだれでも利用できると感じました。

●早速Serendipity Bible for Study Gropes /Luke 11 1-13主の祈りの個所の一部ご紹介します。

Read Luke 11:1-13 and discuss briefly.

15分でこの聖書箇所を読み、短時間で話合う。

  1. Jesus was most concerned to tell his disciples:

    イエスは弟子達に教えるために最も深く関心を持った言葉。

  1. What to pray for

    祈祷の主題はなにか

  2. The proper attitude for prayer

        祈りのための適切な心構え

  1. What words to say

    どんな言葉で祈るのか

  2. Who they were praying to

    彼らは誰に対して祈っていたのか

  1. The point of parable about the neighbors is that:

    隣人のたとえ話についての要点はなに

  1. We give up too soon when we petition God.

    我々は神に誓願する時、身を委ねるのに早すげることはない。 

  2. We should refuse to take "no" for an answer.

        我々は答えに『否(だめだ)』と結論づけることを拒否すべきである。

  3. God is as responsive as our reluctant neighbor.

        神は不承不承の隣人と同じようにすぐ反応する

  4. God gives us what we want not in exas peration , but in joy.

        激怒してでなく、喜んで神は我々が欲 するものを与えて下さる。

  1. From God, the answer is always "yes" we should keep praying, no matter what the answer is.

神の返答はいつも「肯定(オーケイ)」であり、祈祷の返答がどうであろうと我々は祈り続ける。

 

Keep Your Eyes Open

29-30 As the crowd swelled, he took a fresh tack: "The mood of this age is all wrong. Everybody's looking for proof, but you're looking for the wrong kind. All you're looking for is something to titillate your curiosity, satisfy your lust for miracles. But the only proof you're going to get is the Jonah-proof given to the Ninevites, which looks like no proof at all. What Jonah was to Nineveh, the Son of Man is to this age.

32,31 "On Judgment Day the Ninevites will stand up and give evidence that will condemn this generation, because when Jonah preached to them they changed their lives. A far greater preacher than Jonah is here, and you squabble about 'proofs.' On Judgment Day the Queen of Sheba will come forward and bring evidence that condemns this generation, because she traveled from a far corner of the earth to listen to wise Solomon. Wisdom far greater than Solomon's is right in front of you, and you quibble over 'evidence.'

33-36 "No one lights a lamp, then hides it in a drawer. It's put on a lamp stand so those entering the room have light to see where they're going. Your eye is a lamp, lighting up your whole body. If you live wide-eyed in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning, so you don't get musty and murky. Keep your life as well-lighted as your best-lighted room."

Frauds!

37-41 When he finished that talk, a Pharisee asked him to dinner. He entered his house and sat right down at the table. The Pharisee was shocked and somewhat offended when he saw that Jesus didn't wash up before the meal. But the Master said to him, "I know you Pharisees burnish the surface of your cups and plates so they sparkle in the sun, but I also know your insides are maggoty with greed and secret evil. Stupid Pharisees! Didn't the One who made the outside also make the inside? Turn both your pockets and your hearts inside out and give generously to the poor; then your lives will be clean, not just your dishes and your hands.

42 "I've had it with you! You're hopeless, you Pharisees! Frauds! You keep meticulous account books, tithing on every nickel and dime you get, but manage to find loopholes for getting around basic matters of justice and God's love. Careful bookkeeping is commendable, but the basics are required.

43-44 "You're hopeless, you Pharisees! Frauds! You love sitting at the head table at church dinners, love preening yourselves in the radiance of public flattery. Frauds! You're just like unmarked graves: People walk over that nice, grassy surface, never suspecting the rot and corruption that is six feet under."

45 One of the religion scholars spoke up: "Teacher, do you realize that in saying these things you're insulting us?"

46 He said, "Yes, and I can be even more explicit. You're hopeless, you religion scholars! You load people down with rules and regulations, nearly breaking their backs, but never lift even a finger to help.

47-51 "You're hopeless! You build tombs for the prophets your ancestors killed. The tombs you build are monuments to your murdering ancestors more than to the murdered prophets. That accounts for God's Wisdom saying, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, but they'll kill them and run them off.' What it means is that every drop of righteous blood ever spilled from the time earth began until now, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was struck down between altar and sanctuary, is on your heads. Yes, it's on the bill of this generation and this generation will pay.

52 "You're hopeless, you religion scholars! You took the key of knowledge, but instead of unlocking doors, you locked them. You won't go in yourself, and won't let anyone else in either."

53-54 As soon as Jesus left the table, the religion scholars and Pharisees went into a rage. They went over and over everything he said, plotting how they could trap him in something from his own mouth.
