عجيبة شفاء خادم قائد المئة
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا07/من01حتى10/”بَعْدَ أَنْ أَكْمَلَ يَسوعُ كَلامَهُ كُلَّهُ عَلى مَسَامِعِ الشَّعْب، دَخَلَ كَفَرنَاحُوم. وكَانَ لِقائِدِ مِئَةٍ خَادِمٌ بِهِ سُوء، وقَدْ أَشْرَفَ عَلى المَوت، وكَانَ عَزيزًا عَلَيه. وَسَمِعَ بِيَسوعَ فَأَرْسَلَ إِلَيهِ بَعْضَ شَيُوخِ اليَهُود، يَسْأَلُهُ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ ويُنقِذَ خَادِمَهُ. فَأَقْبَلُوا إِلى يَسُوع، وأَلَحُّوا يَتَوسَّلُونَ إِلَيهِ قَائِلين: «إنَّهُ مُسْتَحِقٌّ أَنْ تَصْنَعَ لَهُ هذَا، لأَنَّهُ يُحِبُّ أُمَّتنَا، وَقَد بَنَى لَنَا المَجْمَع». فَمَضَى يَسُوعُ مَعَهُم. ومَا إنْ صَارَ غَيرَ بَعِيدٍ عَنِ البَيْت، حَتَّى أَرْسَلَ إِلَيهِ قَائِدُ المِئَةِ بَعْضَ أَصْدقَائِهِ، يَقولُ لَهُ: «يا رَبّ، لا تُزعِجْ نَفْسَكَ، لأَنِّي لَسْتُ أَهْلاً أَنْ تَدْخُلَ تَحْتَ سَقْفي. لِذلِكَ لَمْ أَحسَبْ نَفْسي مُسْتَحِقًّا أَنْ آتِيَ إِلَيْك، لكِنْ قُلْ كَلِمَةً فَيُشْفَى فَتَاي. فَإنِّي أَنا أَيْضًا رَجُلٌ خَاضِعٌ لِسُلْطان، وَلِي جُنُودٌ تَحْتَ إِمْرَتي، فَأَقولُ لِهذَا: ٱذْهَب! فَيَذْهَبْ، وَلآخَرَ: ٱئْتِ! فَيَأْتي، وَلِخَادِمِي: ٱفْعَلْ هذَا! فَيَفْعَل». وَلَمَّا سَمِعَ يَسوعُ أُعْجِبَ بِه، وٱلتَفَتَ إِلى الجَمْعِ الَّذي يَتْبَعُهُ فَقاَل: «أَقولُ لَكُم: لَمْ أَجِدْ مِثْلَ هذَا الإِيْمَانِ حَتَّى في إِسْرائِيل». وَعَاد المُرْسَلُونَ إِلى البَيْت، فَوَجَدُوا الخَادِمَ مُعَافَى.”

The centurion’s Slave Healing Miracle
Luke 07/01-10/: “After Jesus had finished all his sayings in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum. A centurion there had a slave whom he valued highly, and who was ill and close to death. When he heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders to him, asking him to come and heal his slave. When they came to Jesus, they appealed to him earnestly, saying, ‘He is worthy of having you do this for him, for he loves our people, and it is he who built our synagogue for us. ’And Jesus went with them, but when he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to say to him, ‘Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; therefore I did not presume to come to you. But only speak the word, and let my servant be healed. For I also am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, “Go”, and he goes, and to another, “Come”, and he comes, and to my slave, “Do this”, and the slave does it.’ When Jesus heard this he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, he said, ‘I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.’When those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.”

أَمَّا أَنْتَ، فَلِمَاذَا تَدِينُ أَخَاك؟ وأَنْتَ، لَمَاذَا تَحْتَقِرُ أَخَاك؟ فَجَمِيعُنَا سَنَقِفُ أَمَامَ مِنْبَرِ الله! لأَنَّهُ مَكْتُوب: «حَيٌّ أَنَا، يَقُولُ الرَّبّ، لي تَجْثُو كُلُّ رُكْبَة، وللهِ يَعْتَرِفُ كُلُّ لِسَان
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل رومة14/من01 حتى13/”يا إخوَتِي، مَنْ كَانَ ضَعِيفًا في الإِيْمَانِ فَٱقْبَلُوه، ولا تُحَاكِمُوهُ عَلى آرَائِهِ. فَهُنَاكَ مَنْ يَعْتَقِدُ أَنَّهُ يَجُوزُ لَهُ أَنْ يَأْكُلَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيء، أَمَّا الضَّعِيفُ في الإِيْمَانِ فَيَأْكُلُ البُقُول. فالَّذي يَأْكُل، عَلَيْهِ أَلاَّ يَحْتَقِرَ مَنْ لا يَأْكُل؛ والَّذي لا يَأْكُل، عَلَيْهِ أَلاَّ يَدِينَ مَنْ يَأْكُل، لأَنَّ اللهَ قَدْ قَبِلَهُ! فأَنْتَ مَنْ تَكُون، يَا مَنْ تَدِينُ خَادِمَ غَيْرِكَ؟ فَإِنْ يَثْبُتْ أَوْ يَسْقُطْ فهُوَ لِرَبِّهِ! وَلكِنَّهُ سَيَثْبُتُ لأَنَّ الرَّبَّ قَادِرٌ أَنْ يُثَبِّتَهُ! وهُنَاكَ مَنْ يُمَيِّزُ بَيْنَ يَوْمٍ وَيَوْم، وآخَرُ يُسَاوِي بَيْنَ الأَيَّامِ كُلِّهَا: فَلْيَبْقَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ عَلى يَقِينِهِ في رأْيِهِ الخَاصّ. فَمَنْ يَهْتَمُّ بِيَوْمٍ مُعَيَّنٍ فَلِلرَّبِّ يَهْتَمّ، ومَنْ يَأْكُلُ فَلِلرَّبِّ يَأْكُل، لأَنَّهُ للهِ يَشْكُر؛ ومَنْ لا يَأْكُلُ فَلِلرَّبِّ لا يَأْكُل، وللهِ يَشْكُر. فَمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ يَحْيَا لِنَفْسِهِ، وَمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ يَمُوتُ لِنَفْسِهِ. فإِنْ نَحْيَ فَلِلرَّبِّ نَحْيَا، وإِنْ نَمُتْ فَلِلرَّبِّ نَمُوت. إِذًا فَإِنْ نَحْيَ وَإِنْ نَمُتْ فَنَحْنُ لِلرَّبّ. فَلِذلِكَ مَاتَ المَسِيحُ وعَادَ حَيًّا، لِيَكوُنَ رَبَّ الأَحْيَاءِ والأَمْوَات. أَمَّا أَنْتَ، فَلِمَاذَا تَدِينُ أَخَاك؟ وأَنْتَ، لَمَاذَا تَحْتَقِرُ أَخَاك؟ فَجَمِيعُنَا سَنَقِفُ أَمَامَ مِنْبَرِ الله! لأَنَّهُ مَكْتُوب: «حَيٌّ أَنَا، يَقُولُ الرَّبّ، لي تَجْثُو كُلُّ رُكْبَة، وللهِ يَعْتَرِفُ كُلُّ لِسَان!». إِذًا فَكُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مِنَّا سَيُؤَدِّي للهِ حِسَابًا عَنْ نَفْسِهِ! فَلْنَكُفَّ عَنِ الحُكْمِ بَعْضُنَا عَلى بَعْض، بَلْ بِالأَحْرَى ٱحْكُمُوا بِأَنْ لا تَجْعَلُوا لأَخِيكُم عَثْرَةً أَوْ شَكًّا”.

 

 

Why do you pass judgement on your brother or sister? Or you, why do you despise your brother or sister? For we will all stand before the judgement seat of God. For it is written, ‘As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God
Letter to the Romans 14/01-13/”Welcome those who are weak in faith, but not for the purpose of quarrelling over opinions. Some believe in eating anything, while the weak eat only vegetables. Those who eat must not despise those who abstain, and those who abstain must not pass judgement on those who eat; for God has welcomed them. Who are you to pass judgement on servants of another? It is before their own lord that they stand or fall. And they will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make them stand. Some judge one day to be better than another, while others judge all days to be alike. Let all be fully convinced in their own minds. Those who observe the day, observe it in honour of the Lord. Also those who eat, eat in honour of the Lord, since they give thanks to God; while those who abstain, abstain in honour of the Lord and give thanks to God. We do not live to ourselves, and we do not die to ourselves. If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and lived again, so that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living. Why do you pass judgement on your brother or sister? Or you, why do you despise your brother or sister? For we will all stand before the judgement seat of God. For it is written, ‘As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God.’So then, each of us will be accountable to God. Let us therefore no longer pass judgement on one another, but resolve instead never to put a stumbling-block or hindrance in the way of another.”
