أَنْتَ هُوَ سِمْعَانُ بْنُ يُونا، أَنتَ سَتُدعى كيفا، أَي بُطرُسَ الصَّخْرَة
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا01/من35حتى42/”في الغَدِ أَيْضًا كَانَ يُوحَنَّا وَاقِفًا هُوَ وٱثْنَانِ مِنْ تَلاميذِهِ. ورَأَى يَسُوعَ مَارًّا فَحَدَّقَ إِليهِ وقَال: «هَا هُوَ حَمَلُ الله». وسَمِعَ التِّلْمِيذَانِ كَلامَهُ، فَتَبِعَا يَسُوع. وٱلتَفَتَ يَسُوع، فرَآهُمَا يَتْبَعَانِهِ، فَقَالَ لَهُمَا: «مَاذَا تَطْلُبَان؟» قَالا لَهُ: «رَابِّي، أَي يَا مُعَلِّم، أَيْنَ تُقِيم؟». قالَ لَهُمَا: « تَعَالَيَا وٱنْظُرَا». فَذَهَبَا ونَظَرَا أَيْنَ يُقِيم. وأَقَامَا عِنْدَهُ ذلِكَ اليَوم، وكَانَتِ السَّاعَةُ نَحْوَ الرَّابِعَةِ بَعْدَ الظُّهر. وكَانَ أَنْدرَاوُسُ أَخُو سِمْعَانَ بُطْرُسَ أَحَدَ التِّلمِيذَيْن، اللَّذَيْنِ سَمِعَا كَلامَ يُوحَنَّا وتَبِعَا يَسُوع. ولَقِيَ أَوَّلاً أَخَاهُ سِمْعَان، فَقَالَ لَهُ: «وَجَدْنَا مَشيحَا، أَيِ المَسِيح». وجَاءَ بِهِ إِلى يَسُوع، فَحَدَّقَ يَسُوعُ إِليهِ وقَال: «أَنْتَ هُوَ سِمْعَانُ بْنُ يُونا، أَنتَ سَتُدعى كيفا، أَي بُطرُسَ الصَّخْرَة».”

You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas, the rock
John 01/35-42.: “The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, ‘Look, here is the Lamb of God! ’ The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, ‘What are you looking for?’ They said to him, ‘Rabbi’ (which translated means Teacher), ‘where are you staying?’ He said to them, ‘Come and see.’ They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o’clock in the afternoon. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, ‘We have found the Messiah’ (which is translated Anointed).He brought Simon to Jesus, who looked at him and said, ‘You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas’ (which is translated Peter). the rock”

 

رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل فيلبّي01/من12حتى20/ أَتَصَرَّفَ بِكُلِّ جُرْأَة، الآنَ كمَا في كُلِّ حِين، لِكَي يُعَظَّمَ المَسِيحُ في جَسَدِي بِٱلحَيَاةِ أَو بِالمَوت.”
أُرِيدُ أَنْ تَعْلَمُوا، أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَة، أَنَّ مَا حَدَثَ لي قَد أَدَّى بِالحَرِيِّ إِلى نَجَاحِ الإِنْجِيل، حتَّى إِنَّ قُيُودِي مِن أَجْلِ المَسِيحِ صَارَتْ مَشْهُورَةً في دَارِ الوِلايَةِ كُلِّهَا، وفي كُلِّ مَكَانٍ آخَر. وإِنَّ أَكْثَرَ الإِخْوَةِ قَدْ وَثِقُوا بالرَّبِّ مِن خِلالِ قُيُودِي، فَٱزْدَادُوا جُرْأَةً على النُّطْقِ بِكَلِمَةِ اللهِ بِغَيْرِ خَوْف. فَٱلبَعْضُ يُبَشِّرُونَ بِالمَسيحِ عَن حَسَدٍ وخِصَام، والبَعضُ بنِيَّةٍ طَيِّبَة. هؤُلاءِ يُبَشِّرُونَ بِمَحَبَّة، عَالِمِينَ أَنِّي أُقِمْتُ لِلدِّفَاعِ عَنِ الإِنْجِيل، وأُولئِكَ يُبَشِّرُونَ بِالمَسيحِ عَنْ خِصَامٍ وبِغَيرِ إِخْلاص، وهُم يَظُنُّونَ أَنَّهُم يَزِيدُونَ قُيُودِي ضِيقًا. فمَا هَمَّنِي؟ حَسْبِي أَنَّ المَسِيحَ يُبَشَّرُ بِهِ، في كُلِّ حَال، بِغَرَضٍ كانَ أَمْ بِحَقّ: وبِهذَا أَنا أَفْرَح، وسَأَفْرَحُ أَيْضًا. فأَنَا أَعْلَمُ أَنَّ ذَلِكَ يَؤُولُ إِلى خَلاصِي، بِفَضْلِ صَلاتِكُم ومَعُونَةِ رُوحِ يَسُوعَ المَسِيح. وإِنِّي أَنْتَظِرُ وأَرْجُو أَنْ لا أَخْزَى في شَيء، بَلْ أَنْ أَتَصَرَّفَ بِكُلِّ جُرْأَة، الآنَ كمَا في كُلِّ حِين، لِكَي يُعَظَّمَ المَسِيحُ في جَسَدِي بِٱلحَيَاةِ أَو بِالمَوت

Christ will be exalted now as always in my body, whether by life or by death.
Letter to the Philippians 01/12-20: “I want you to know, beloved, that what has happened to me has actually helped to spread the gospel, so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to everyone else that my imprisonment is for Christ; and most of the brothers and sisters, having been made confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, dare to speak the word with greater boldness and without fear. Some proclaim Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from goodwill. These proclaim Christ out of love, knowing that I have been put here for the defence of the gospel; the others proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but intending to increase my suffering in my imprisonment. What does it matter? Just this, that Christ is proclaimed in every way, whether out of false motives or true; and in that I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will result in my deliverance. It is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be put to shame in any way, but that by my speaking with all boldness, Christ will be exalted now as always in my body, whether by life or by death.”
