Beware of the teaching (yeast) of the Pharisees and Sadducees
Matthew 16/11-20: “How could you fail to perceive that I was not speaking about bread? Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees!’Then they understood that he had not told them to beware of the yeast of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say that the Son of Man is?’ And they said, ‘Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’He said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.’And Jesus answered him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.’Then he sternly ordered the disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.”
كُونُوا على رَأْيٍ واحِد، ومحَبَّةٍ واحِدَة، ونَفْسٍ واحِدَة، وفِكْرٍ واحِد رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل فيلبّي02/من01حتى11/”يا إخوَتِي، إِنْ كَانَ لَكُم تَشْجِيعٌ في الْمَسِيح، أَو تَعزِيَةٌ في الْمَحبَّة، أَو شَرِكَةٌ في الرُّوح، أَو حَنَانٌ أَو رَحْمَة، فأَتِمُّوا فَرَحِي بِأَنْ تَكُونُوا على رَأْيٍ واحِد، ومحَبَّةٍ واحِدَة، ونَفْسٍ واحِدَة، وفِكْرٍ واحِد. لا تَفْعَلُوا شَيْئًا عن خِصَامٍ ولا بِعُجْبٍ، بَلْ بٱتِّضَاع، وَلْيَحْسَبْ كُلُّ واحِدٍ مِنْكُم غَيْرَهُ أَفْضَلَ مِنْهُ. ولا تَنْظُرُوا كُلُّ واحِدٍ إِلى ما هُوَ لِنَفْسِهِ، بَلْ بالحَرِيِّ إِلى مَا هُوَ لِغَيْرِهِ. لِيَكُنْ فيكُم منَ الأَفْكارِ مَا هُوَ في المَسِيحِ يَسُوع. فَهُوَ، معَ كَونِهِ في صُورَةِ الله، لَمْ يَحْسَبْ مُسَاوَاتَهُ للهِ غَنِيمَة، بَلْ أَخْلَى ذَاتَهُ، مُتَّخِذًا صُورَةَ العَبْد، صَائِرًا في شِبْهِ البَشَر. ولَمَّا ظَهَرَ في هَيْئَةِ إِنْسَان، واضَعَ ذَاتَهُ، وصَارَ مُطِيعًا حَتَّى المَوْت، ٱلمَوْتِ على الصَّلِيب. فَلِذلِكَ رَفَعَهُ اللهُ جِدًّا، ووَهَبَهُ ٱلٱسْمَ الَّذي يَعْلُو كُلَّ ٱسْمٍ، لِكَي تَجْثُوَ بٱسْمِ يَسُوعَ كُلُّ رُكْبَة، في السَّمَاءِ وعَلى الأَرْضِ وتَحْتَ الأَرْض، ويَعْتَرِفَ كُلُّ لِسَانٍ أَنَّ يَسُوعَ المَسِيحَ هُوَ الرَّبُّ لِمَجْدِ اللهِ الآب.”
Be of the same mind, same love, and have one mind
Letter to the Philippians 02/01-11: “If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death even death on a cross. Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
