バイブルクラスが行われました

 

この日(2016/06/04)のバイブルクラスは4名の出席で、ルカ福音書の13章の前半を学びました。

今日教えられたみ言葉のポイントは二つの小見出し、"Unless You Turn to God"

と"Healing on the Sabbath"のとおりだと思います。

始めの個所は「神に目を向けなければ、死ぬことになる。」と記されていますが、これは旧・新約の聖書通しての黄金律ではないでしょうか。

神様に目を向けること、神様に真剣に向き合うこと、このことを古くから世界中で信仰と理解してきました。そして私たちあるいは聖書に記された信仰によれば死は罪とほぼ同義語です。したがって罪の反意語は単に徳のある良い行いではなく信仰であることが明らかです。

次に学んだポイントも"Healing on the Sabbath"安息日における癒し(回復)の主体は誰なのか、そしてその影響を被るべき客体の関係に改めて気づかされます。

イエスの前に導かれた18年間病気に苦しむ女に神の業が完成する時があてこそ安息日の意義に適っていることを。

 

次回のバイブルクラスは、いつもの第三土曜日ではなく625日の第四土曜日(午後3時から)開催です。

 

Luke 13The Message (MSG)

Unless You Turn to God

13 1-5 About that time some people came up and told him about the Galileans Pilate had killed while they were at worship, mixing their blood with the blood of the sacrifices on the altar. Jesus responded, "Do you think those murdered Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans? Not at all. Unless you turn to God, you, too, will die. And those eighteen in Jerusalem the other day, the ones crushed and killed when the Tower of Siloam collapsed and fell on them, do you think they were worse citizens than all other Jerusalemites? Not at all. Unless you turn to God, you, too, will die."

6-7 Then he told them a story: "A man had an apple tree planted in his front yard. He came to it expecting to find apples, but there weren't any. He said to his gardener, 'What's going on here? For three years now I've come to this tree expecting apples and not one apple have I found. Chop it down! Why waste good ground with it any longer?'

8-9 "The gardener said, 'Let's give it another year. I'll dig around it and fertilize, and maybe it will produce next year; if it doesn't, then chop it down.'"

Healing on the Sabbath

10-13 He was teaching in one of the meeting places on the Sabbath. There was a woman present, so twisted and bent over with arthritis that she couldn't even look up. She had been afflicted with this for eighteen years. When Jesus saw her, he called her over. "Woman, you're free!" He laid hands on her and suddenly she was standing straight and tall, giving glory to God.

14 The meeting-place president, furious because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, said to the congregation, "Six days have been defined as work days. Come on one of the six if you want to be healed, but not on the seventh, the Sabbath."

15-16 But Jesus shot back, "You frauds! Each Sabbath every one of you regularly unties your cow or donkey from its stall, leads it out for water, and thinks nothing of it. So why isn't it all right for me to untie this daughter of Abraham and lead her from the stall where Satan has had her tied these eighteen years?"

17 When he put it that way, his critics were left looking quite silly and red-faced. The congregation was delighted and cheered him on.
