4/16 受難週第三天

 4/16 The Third Day of Passion Week
Introduction:
            Tuesday was a busy day for Jesus.  In the morning, Jesus and his disciples returned to Jerusalem. They passed the withered fig tree on their way, and Jesus taught them about faith. At the Temple, the religious leaders aggressively challenged Jesus' authority, attempting to ambush Him and create an opportunity for his arrest. But Jesus evaded their traps and pronounced harsh judgment on them.

            In the afternoon Jesus left the city and went with his disciples to the Mount of Olives, which overlooks Jerusalem, due east of the Temple. Here Jesus gave the Olivet Discourse, an elaborate prophecy about the destruction of Jerusalem, and the end of the age. He taught in parables using symbolic language, about future events, including His Second Coming, and the final judgment.

            Scripture also indicates that Tuesday was the day Judas negotiated with the Sanhedrin to betray Jesus.

            After a tiring day of confrontation and warnings about the future, once again Jesus and the disciples stayed the night in Bethany.

 Key Verses:

John 12:20–26

20 Now there were certain Greeks among those who came up to worship at the feast. 21 Then they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.”22 Philip came and told Andrew, and in turn Andrew and Philip told Jesus.23 But Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified. 24 Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. 25 He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.

   4/16 受難週第三天
簡介:
       這一天是繁忙的一天。在早晨回耶路撒冷的路上,耶穌和門徒經過枯乾的無花果樹時,耶穌趁機教導門徒關於信心的功課。當他們來到聖殿,猶太人的宗教領袖希望在耶穌的話上得著把柄,從而將耶穌抓起來。然而,耶穌卻識破了他們的詭計,並嚴厲地責備了他們。同時,針對希臘人希望見耶穌的請求,耶穌藉著一粒麥子講論了十字架的原則。

      下午,耶穌和門徒來到橄欖山。在這裡,耶穌對門徒講論了有關耶路撒冷被毀與末世的預言 - 橄欖山講論the Olivet Discourse。也就在今天,猶大也和猶太人的宗教領袖商量好如何出賣耶穌。晚上,耶穌仍然出城到伯大尼住宿。

鑰節:約翰福音12:20-26
20那時,上來過節禮拜的人中,有幾個希臘人。 21他們來見加利利、伯賽大的腓力,求他說:「先生,我們願意見耶穌。」 22腓力去告訴安得烈,安得烈同腓力去告訴耶穌。 23耶穌說:「人子得榮耀的時候到了 24我實實在在地告訴你們,一粒麥子不落在地裏死了,仍舊是一粒,若是死了,就結出許多子粒來。 25愛惜自己生命的,就失喪生命;在這世上恨惡自己生命的,就要保守生命到永生。 26若有人服事我,就當跟從我;我在哪裏,服事我的人也要在那裏;若有人服事我,我父必尊重他。
默想:
    這一天,是耶穌在耶路撒冷最後公開的事奉,耶穌有機會和許多的人對答。但耶穌對幾位希臘人求見的回答,特別能夠提醒我們今天當如何跟隨耶穌。面對馬上就要來到的十架酷刑,耶穌卻認為是『人子得榮耀的時候』,因為耶穌知道『一粒麥子不落在地裏死了,仍舊是一粒,若是死了,就結出許多子粒來』。今天,你我都因著接受耶穌基督的救贖而得稱為義!

    然而, 神的救恩從來就沒有只是停留在讓我們罪得赦免的階段,祂乃是盼望我們捨己,背起自己的十架來跟從祂!祂應許我們,當我們如此行的時候,天父必尊重我們,因為耶穌的生命在我們的身上得以彰顯。

    今天,如果也有人像當初的幾位希臘人一樣希望看見耶穌,他們是否能夠從我們的身上看見耶穌的榮美呢?
詩歌:H419   一直走十架窄路
