فجَلَسَ يَسُوع، ودَعَا ٱلٱثْنَي عَشَر، وقَالَ لَهُم: «إِنْ أَرَادَ أَحَدٌ أَنْ يَكُونَ الأَوَّل، فَلْيَكُنْ آخِرَ الجَمِيعِ وخَادِمَ الجَمِيع»
إنجيل القدّيس مرقس09/من33حتى37/”وصَلَ يَسُوعُ وتَلامِيذُهُ إِلى كَفَرْنَاحُوم، ولَمَّا دَخَلَ البَيْتَ سَأَلَهُم: «بِمَ كُنْتُم تَتَجَادَلُونَ في الطَّريق؟». فَظَلُّوا صَامِتين، لأَنَّهُم تَجَادَلُوا في الطَّريقِ في مَنْ هُوَ الأَعْظَم. فجَلَسَ يَسُوع، ودَعَا ٱلٱثْنَي عَشَر، وقَالَ لَهُم: «إِنْ أَرَادَ أَحَدٌ أَنْ يَكُونَ الأَوَّل، فَلْيَكُنْ آخِرَ الجَمِيعِ وخَادِمَ الجَمِيع». ثُمَّ أَخَذَ طِفْلاً وأَقَامَهُ في وَسَطِهِم، وضَمَّهُ بِذِرَاعَيْه، وقَالَ لَهُم: مَنْ قَبِلَ بٱسْمِي وَاحِدًا مِنْ أَمْثَالِ هؤُلاءِ الأَطْفَال، فَهُوَ يَقْبَلُنِي. ومَنْ يَقْبَلُنِي فلا يَقْبَلُنِي أَنَا بَلِ الَّذي أَرْسَلَنِي.”

Jesus sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, ‘Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.’
Mark 09/33-37: “Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, ‘What were you arguing about on the way?’But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, ‘Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.’ Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.”

لا تَخَفْ أَنَا هُوَ ٱلأَوَّلُ وٱلآخِر؛ أَنا ٱلحَيّ، وقَدْ أَمْسَيْتُ مَيْتًا، وهَا إِنِّي حَيٌّ إِلى أَبَدِ ٱلآبِدِين. وَلي مَفَاتِيحُ ٱلمَوتِ وٱلجَحِيم
رؤيا القدّيس يوحنّا01/من09حتى20/يا إِخوَتِي، أَنَا يُوحَنَّا أَخَاكُم وَشَرِيكَكُم في ٱلضِّيقِ وٱلمَلَكُوتِ وٱلثَّبَاتِ في يَسُوع، كُنْتُ في ٱلجَزِيرَةِ ٱلمَدْعُوَّةِ بَطْمُس، مِنْ أَجْلِ كَلِمَةِ ٱللهِ وَشَهادَةِ يَسُوع. فَٱنْتَقَلْتُ بِٱلرُّوحِ يَومَ ٱلرَّبّ، وَسَمِعْتُ وَرَائي صَوْتًا عَظِيمًا كَصَوْتِ بُوقٍ يَقُول: «ما تَرَاهُ ٱكْتُبْ فيهِ كِتَابًا، وَأَرْسِلْهُ إِلى ٱلكَنَائِسِ ٱلسَّبْع: إِلى أَفَسُس، وإِلى إِزْمِير، وإِلى بِرْغَامُس، وإِلى طِيَاطِيرَة، وإِلى سَرْدِيس، وإِلى فِيلادِلْفيَة، وإِلى لَوْدِقِيَّة». فَٱلْتَفَتُّ لأَنْظُرَ ٱلصَّوتَ ٱلَّذي كانَ يُكَلِّمُنِي، وإِذِ ٱلتَفَتُّ، رَأَيْتُ سَبْعَ مَنَائِرَ مِنْ ذَهَب، وفي وَسَطِ ٱلمَنَائِرِ شِبْهَ ٱبْنِ إِنْسَانٍ لابِسٍ ثَوْبًا طَوِيلاً إِلى قَدَمَيْهِ، وَمُتَمَنْطِقٍ عِنْدَ صَدْرِهِ بِحِزَامٍ مِنْ ذَهَب. أَمَّا رَأْسُهُ وشَعْرُهُ فَأَبْيَضُ كَٱلصُّوفِ ٱلأَبْيَض، كٱلثَّلْج، وَعَيناهُ كَلَهِيبِ نَار، وَرِجْلاهُ أَشْبَهُ بِنُحَاسٍ خَالِصٍ كَأَنَّهُ صُفِّيَ في أَتُّون، وصَوتُهُ كَصَوتِ مِيَاهٍ غَزِيرَة. وفي يَدِهِ ٱليُمْنَى سَبْعَةُ كَوَاكِب، ومِنْ فَمِهِ يَخْرُجُ سَيْفٌ مَاضٍ ذُو حَدَّين، ووَجْهُهُ كٱلشَّمْسِ وهِيَ تَسْطَعُ في أَشَدِّ وَهْجِهَا. فلمَّا رَأَيْتُهُ، سَقَطْتُ عِنْدَ رِجْلَيهِ كٱلمَيْت، فَوَضَعَ يَدَهُ ٱليُمْنَى عَليَّ قَائِلاً: «لا تَخَفْ! أَنَا هُوَ ٱلأَوَّلُ وٱلآخِر؛ أَنا ٱلحَيّ، وقَدْ أَمْسَيْتُ مَيْتًا، وهَا إِنِّي حَيٌّ إِلى أَبَدِ ٱلآبِدِين. وَلي مَفَاتِيحُ ٱلمَوتِ وٱلجَحِيم. فَٱكْتُب إِذًا مَا رأَيْتَ، وَمَا هُوَ الآن، ومَا هُوَ مُزْمِعٌ أَنْ يَحْدُثَ بَعْدَ ذلِكَ. وهذا هُوَ سِرُّ ٱلكَوَاكِبِ ٱلسَّبْعَة، الَّتي رأَيْتَها في يَدِي ٱليُمْنَى، وٱلمَنَائِرِ ٱلسَّبْعِ ٱلذَّهَبِيَّة: فَٱلكَواكِبُ ٱلسَّبْعَةُ هِيَ مَلائِكَةُ ٱلكَنَائِسِ ٱلسَّبْع، وٱلمَنَائِرُ ٱلسَّبْعُ هِيَ ٱلكَنَائِسُ ٱلسَّبْع.

I am the first and the last, and the living one. I was dead, and see, I am alive for ever and ever; and I have the keys of Death and of Hades
Book of Revelation 01/09-20: “I, John, your brother who share with you in Jesus the persecution and the kingdom and the patient endurance, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet saying, ‘Write in a book what you see and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamum, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.’Then I turned to see whose voice it was that spoke to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands I saw one like the Son of Man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash across his chest. His head and his hair were white as white wool, white as snow; his eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and from his mouth came a sharp, two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining with full force. When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he placed his right hand on me, saying, ‘Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living one. I was dead, and see, I am alive for ever and ever; and I have the keys of Death and of Hades. Now write what you have seen, what is, and what is to take place after this. As for the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.”
