バイブルクラスがおこなわれました

Bible class on Saturday January 7th, 2017

新年おめでとうございます。

今年最初の緑星教会バイブルクラスが行われました。出席は3名でしたが、The Messageから新たなみ言葉の発見や信仰の課題が与えられました。

 

A Rooster Crowed"鶏の鳴く声"は、前回の学びで、「主よ、わたしは獄にでも、また死にいたるまでも、あなたについていく覚悟です。」と決意を述べたペテロに、「あなたは、今日鶏が鳴くまでに、三度わたしをしらないと言うだろう」と予告したイエスの言葉が現実のものとなる劇的な場面です。

わずか数時間前のペテロの決意ともいえる信仰告白が、イエスの予告通りになるのですが、もう一度その個所を読み返すと、イエスはペテロの決意表明の直前に、こう言っていたのでした。Simon, I've prayed for you in particular that you not give in or give out. When you have come through the time of testing, turn to your companions and give them a fresh start."「 シモン(ペテロ)、私はあなたが屈服し、あきらめないように特にあなたのために祈りました。 あなたは試練の時を過ぎ越したら、仲間たちをかえりみて、彼らに新たなスタートを与えてください。」

今絶望の淵にいるイエスから、なんと慈愛に満ち、そして未来を見据えて勇気と希望を与えてくれる言葉でしょうか。多分この時、ペテロはイエスの言葉を良く理解できずに、その持ち前の性格通りの決意を述べてしまったと思いますが、イエスのこのメッセージはご自身の昇天後の初代教会の確たるリーダーになるペテロを見据えて述べられたのだろうと思います。

また、この個所には聖書がイエスとキリストとして象徴する、完全や完成を暗示する"3"がちりばめられていると、この日の参加のメンバーで意見が出ました。

  1. ペテロを「この人はイエスの仲間」と指摘する3人(Woman,Man&Man)が現れる ②彼らの発言をペテロが三度否定する場面 ③その直後に振り向いたイエスと顔をあわせて予告を想いおこした途端、ペテロが号泣する場面"Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times." He went out and cried and cried and cried.

     

    いよいよ次回121日は23章、十字架のイエスの個所を学びます。

     

Luke 22The Message (MSG)

A Rooster Crowed

54-56 Arresting Jesus, they marched him off and took him into the house of the Chief Priest. Peter followed, but at a safe distance. In the middle of the courtyard some people had started a fire and were sitting around it, trying to keep warm. One of the serving maids sitting at the fire noticed him, then took a second look and said, "This man was with him!"

57 He denied it, "Woman, I don't even know him."

58 A short time later, someone else noticed him and said, "You're one of them."

But Peter denied it: "Man, I am not."

59 About an hour later, someone else spoke up, really adamant: "He's got to have been with him! He's got 'Galilean' written all over him."

60-62 Peter said, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about." At that very moment, the last word hardly off his lips, a rooster crowed. Just then, the Master turned and looked at Peter. Peter remembered what the Master had said to him: "Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times." He went out and cried and cried and cried.

Slapping Him Around

63-65 The men in charge of Jesus began poking fun at him, slapping him around. They put a blindfold on him and taunted, "Who hit you that time?" They were having a grand time with him.

66-67 When it was morning, the religious leaders of the people and the high priests and scholars all got together and brought him before their High Council. They said, "Are you the Messiah?"

67-69 He answered, "If I said yes, you wouldn't believe me. If I asked what you meant by your question, you wouldn't answer me. So here's what I have to say: From here on the Son of Man takes his place at God's right hand, the place of power."

70 They all said, "So you admit your claim to be the Son of God?"

"You're the ones who keep saying it," he said.

71 But they had made up their minds, "Why do we need any more evidence? We've all heard him as good as say it himself."
