إِنَّ حَبَّةَ الحِنْطَة، إِنْ لَمْ تَقَعْ في الأَرضِ وتَمُتْ، تَبْقَى وَاحِدَة. وإِنْ مَاتَتْ تَأْتِي بِثَمَرٍ كَثِير
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا12/من20حتى28/كَانَ بَينَ الصَّاعِدِينَ لِيَسْجُدُوا في العِيد، بَعْضُ اليُونَانِيِّين. فَدَنَا هؤُلاءِ مِنْ فِيلِبُّسَ الَّذي مِنْ بَيْتَ صَيْدَا الجَلِيل، وسَأَلُوهُ قَائِلين: «يَا سَيِّد، نُرِيدُ أَنْ نَرَى يَسُوع». فَجَاءَ فِيلِبُّسُ وقَالَ لأَنْدرَاوُس، وجَاءَ أَنْدرَاوُسُ وفِيلِبُّسُ وقَالا لِيَسُوع. فَأَجَابَهُمَا يَسُوعُ قَائِلاً: «لَقَدْ حَانَتِ السَّاعَةُ لِكَي يُمَجَّدَ ٱبْنُ الإِنْسَان. أَلحَقَّ ٱلحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: إِنَّ حَبَّةَ الحِنْطَة، إِنْ لَمْ تَقَعْ في الأَرضِ وتَمُتْ، تَبْقَى وَاحِدَة. وإِنْ مَاتَتْ تَأْتِي بِثَمَرٍ كَثِير. مَنْ يُحِبُّ نَفْسَهُ يَفْقِدُهَا، ومَنْ يُبْغِضُهَا في هذَا العَالَمِ يَحْفَظُهَا لِحَيَاةٍ أَبَدِيَّة. مَنْ يَخْدُمْنِي فَلْيَتْبَعْنِي. وحَيْثُ أَكُونُ أَنَا، فَهُنَاكَ يَكُونُ أَيْضًا خَادِمِي. مَنْ يَخْدُمْنِي يُكَرِّمْهُ الآب. نَفْسِي الآنَ مُضْطَرِبَة، فَمَاذَا أَقُول؟ يَا أَبَتِ، نَجِّنِي مِنْ هذِهِ السَّاعَة؟ ولكِنْ مِنْ أَجْلِ هذَا بَلَغْتُ إِلى هذِهِ السَّاعَة!يَا أَبَتِ، مَجِّدِ ٱسْمَكَ». فَجَاءَ صَوْتٌ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ يَقُول: «قَدْ مَجَّدْتُ، وسَأُمَجِّد».

Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit
John 12/20-28: “Among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks. They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him, ‘Sir, we wish to see Jesus. ’Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus. Jesus answered them, ‘The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honour. ‘Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say “Father, save me from this hour”? No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour. Father, glorify your name.’ Then a voice came from heaven, ‘I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.

رؤيا القدّيس يوحنّا15/من01حتى08/”يا إِخوَتِي، رَأَيتُ آيَةً أُخْرَى في ٱلسَّمَاءِ عَظِيمَةً وعَجِيبَة، سَبْعَةَ مَلائِكَة، مَعَهُمُ ٱلضَّرَبَاتُ ٱلسَّبْعُ ٱلأَخِيرَة، لأَنَّهُ بِهَا تَمَّ سُخْطُ ٱلله. وَرَأَيْتُ مِثْلَ بَحْرٍ مِنْ زُجَاجٍ مُخْتَلِطٍ بِنَار، وٱلظَّافِرِينَ عَلى ٱلوَحْشِ وعَلَى صُورَتِهِ وعَلى عَدَدِ ٱسْمِهِ وَاقِفِينَ عَلَى بَحْر ٱلزُّجَاج، وَمَعَهُم قِيثَارَاتُ ٱلله، وهُمْ يُرَنِّمٌونَ تَرْنيمَةَ مُوسى عَبْدِ الله، وتَرْنيمَةَ ٱلحَمَلِ قائلين: «عَظِيمَةٌ وَعَجِيبَةٌ أَعْمالُكَ أيُّها ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلإلهُ ٱلضَّابِطُ ٱلكُلّ! إنَّ طُرُقَكَ عَدْلٌ وَحَقّ، يا مَلكَ ٱلأُمَم! مَنْ لا يَهَابُكَ، يا رَبّ، ولا يُمَجِّدُ ٱسْمَكَ؟ لأَنَّكَ وَحْدَكَ قُدُّوس! لأَنَّ جَميعَ ٱلأُمَمِ سَتَأْتي وتَسْجُدُ أَمَامَكَ، لأَنَّ أَحْكَامَكَ قَدْ ظَهَرَتْ!». وبَعْدَ ذلِكَ رَأَيْتُ، فَفُتِحَ هَيْكَلُ خَيْمَةِ ٱلشَّهَادَةِ في ٱلسَّمَاء، وَخَرَجَ مِنَ ٱلهَيْكَل ٱلمَلائِكَةُ ٱلسَّبْعَةُ وَمَعَهُمُ ٱلضَّربَاتُ ٱلسَّبْع، لابِسِينَ كَتَّاناً نَقِّيًّا بَرَّاقًا، ومُتَمَنْطِقِينَ عِنْدَ صُدُورِهِم بِأَحْزِمَةٍ مِنْ ذَهَب. وَوَاحِدٌ مِنَ ٱلأَحْيَاءِ ٱلأَرْبَعَةِ أَعْطَى ٱلمَلائِكَةَ السَّبْعَةَ سَبْعَ كُؤُوسٍ مِنْ ذَهَب، مَلأَى مِنْ سُخْطِ ٱللهِ ٱلحَيِّ إلى أَبَدِ ٱلآبِدِين. فَٱمْتَلأَ ٱلهَيْكَلُ دُخَانًا مِنْ مَجْدِ ٱللهِ وقُدْرَتِهِ، وَمَا كانَ أَحَدٌ يَسْتَطيعْ أَنْ يَدْخُلَ ٱلهَيْكَلَ حتَّى تَتِمَّ ٱلضَّرَبَاتُ ٱلسَّبْعُ مِنْ أَيْدي ٱلمَلائِكَةِ ٱلسَّبْعَة.<

Great and amazing are your deeds, Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, King of the nations! Lord, who will not fear and glorify your name? For you alone are holy
Revelation 15/01-08: “Then I saw another portent in heaven, great and amazing: seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is ended. And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands. And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb: ‘Great and amazing are your deeds, Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, King of the nations! Lord, who will not fear and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your judgements have been revealed.’ After this I looked, and the temple of the tent of witness in heaven was opened, and out of the temple came the seven angels with the seven plagues, robed in pure bright linen, with golden sashes across their chests. Then one of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever; and the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were ended.”
