バイブルクラスがおこなわれました

Bible class on Wednesday December 7th, 2016

 

この日のバイブルクラスも土曜日(第一・第三)ではなく水曜日の変則開催で、お昼の「聖書に親しむ会」のあと、午後3時から3名でもたれました。

昨年から学んできたルカによる福音書も22章に入りました。既にイエスの受難の出来事、The Last Week・最後の一週間も佳境です。

今日のThe MessageThe Passover Meal・最後の晩餐の場面を中心に学びました。

担当の方の聖書の解説の後、以下のような話題や感想がそれぞれから出ました。

 

  • 22章の出来事は、過ぎ越しの祭りやその除酵祭に当たり、旧約時代に神から選ばれ救われたイスラエルの民族を象徴し追体験する重要な時期に起きている

  • この場面は、旧約の歴史からイエスに始まった新しい救いと赦し、そして終末と審判と神の国への待望の分岐点を指示しているのではないかと読める。

  • イエスはこの場面で12弟子たちのことを指して、disciples・弟子とThe apostles・使徒と使い分けているのはなぜか?

  • 弟子ユダの裏切りや間近に迫っている苦難を覚っているイエスと対照的な出世の展望で論争する弟子たち。

 

・・・・・その後も22章の筋書きは、人間の闇の部分が次から次へと明らかにされていきます。

度たび登場する祭司長と律法学者、彼等は日頃はそれぞれのユダヤ教の解釈で対立している関係でありながら、イエスを共通の敵にすることによって味方同士になっています。

また、ローマから統治を命ぜられ派遣されているピラトとこの地の傀儡の王であるヘロデたちも同様です。

イスカリオテのユダを筆頭に12の弟子たちも闇の力に負けて支配されていく姿と対照的に、徹頭徹尾、神の国の真理と聖なる光で、罪と義を明確に審判してしまうイエスの言葉(ある時はあえて無言)と行いがとても印象的です。

Luke 22The Message (MSG)

The Passover Meal

22 1-2 The Feast of Unleavened Bread, also called Passover, drew near. The high priests and religion scholars were looking for a way to do away with Jesus but, fearful of the people, they were also looking for a way to cover their tracks.

3-6 That's when Satan entered Judas, the one called Iscariot. He was one of the Twelve. Leaving the others, he conferred with the high priests and the Temple guards about how he might betray Jesus to them. They couldn't believe their good luck and agreed to pay him well. He gave them his word and started looking for a way to betray Jesus, but out of sight of the crowd.

7-8 The Day of Unleavened Bread came, the day the Passover lamb was butchered. Jesus sent Peter and John off, saying, "Go prepare the Passover for us so we can eat it together."

They said, "Where do you want us to do this?"

10-12 He said, "Keep your eyes open as you enter the city. A man carrying a water jug will meet you. Follow him home. Then speak with the owner of the house: The Teacher wants to know, 'Where is the guest room where I can eat the Passover meal with my disciples?' He will show you a spacious second-story room, swept and ready. Prepare the meal there."

13 They left, found everything just as he told them, and prepared the Passover meal.

14-16 When it was time, he sat down, all the apostles with him, and said, "You've no idea how much I have looked forward to eating this Passover meal with you before I enter my time of suffering. It's the last one I'll eat until we all eat it together in the kingdom of God."

17-18 Taking the cup, he blessed it, then said, "Take this and pass it among you. As for me, I'll not drink wine again until the kingdom of God arrives."

19 Taking bread, he blessed it, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body, given for you. Eat it in my memory."

20 He did the same with the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant written in my blood, blood poured out for you.

21-22 "Do you realize that the hand of the one who is betraying me is at this moment on this table? It's true that the Son of Man is going down a path already marked out--no surprises there. But for the one who turns him in, turns traitor to the Son of Man, this is doomsday."

23 They immediately became suspicious of each other and began quizzing one another, wondering who might be about to do this.

Get Ready for Trouble

24-26 Within minutes they were bickering over who of them would end up the greatest. But Jesus intervened: "Kings like to throw their weight around and people in authority like to give themselves fancy titles. It's not going to be that way with you. Let the senior among you become like the junior; let the leader act the part of the servant.

27-30 "Who would you rather be: the one who eats the dinner or the one who serves the dinner? You'd rather eat and be served, right? But I've taken my place among you as the one who serves. And you've stuck with me through thick and thin. Now I confer on you the royal authority my Father conferred on me so you can eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and be strengthened as you take up responsibilities among the congregations of God's people.

次回は1217日(土)午後3時から教会会館で開催いたします。
