قالَ الرَبُّ يَسوع: أَلحَقَّ ٱلحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: أَنَا هُوَ بَابُ الخِرَاف. جَمِيعُ الَّذينَ أَتَوا قَبْلِي هُمْ سَارِقُونَ ولُصُوص، ولَمْ تَسْمَعْ لَهُمُ الخِرَاف
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا10/من07حتى10/”قالَ الرَبُّ يَسوع: «أَلحَقَّ ٱلحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: أَنَا هُوَ بَابُ الخِرَاف. جَمِيعُ الَّذينَ أَتَوا قَبْلِي هُمْ سَارِقُونَ ولُصُوص، ولَمْ تَسْمَعْ لَهُمُ الخِرَاف. أَنَا هُوَ البَاب. فَمَنْ يَدْخُلْ مِنِّي يَخْلُصْ، يَدْخُلْ ويَخْرُجْ ويَجِدْ مَرعًى. السَّارِقُ لا يَأْتِي إِلاَّ لِيَسْرِقَ ويَذْبَحَ ويُهْلِك. أَنَا أَتَيْتُ لِتَكُونَ لِلخِرَافِ حَيَاة، وتَكُونَ لَهُم وَافِرَة”.

I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and bandits; but the sheep did not listen to them
John 10/07-10: “Again Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and bandits; but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

فَبِقَولِهِ: عَهْدًا جَدِيدًا»، جَعَلَ الأَوَّلَ عَتِيقًا، ومَا يَعْتُقُ ويَشِيخُ هُوَ قَرِيبٌ مِنَ الزَّوَال
الرسالة إلى العبرانيّين08/من07حتى13/”يا إِخوَتِي، لَو كَانَ ذلِكَ العَهْدُ الأَوَّلُ بِلا لَوم، لَمَا كَانَ هُنَاكَ دَاعٍ إِلى عَهْدٍ آخَر. فإِنَّ الرَّبَّ يَلُومُ شَعْبَهُ قَائِلاً: «هَا إِنَّهَا تَأْتِي أَيَّام، يَقُولُ الرَّبّ، أَقْطَعُ فيهَا مَعَ آلِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وآلِ يَهُوذَا عَهْدًا جَدِيدًا، لا كَالعَهْدِ الَّذي جَعَلْتُهُ لآبَائِهِم، يَوْمَ أَخَذْتُ بِيَدِهِم، لأُخْرِجَهُم مِن أَرْضِ مِصْر. ولأَنَّهُم مَا ثَبَتُوا عَلى عَهْدِي، أَنَا أَيْضًا أَهْمَلْتُهُم، يَقُولُ الرَّبّ. وهذَا هوَ العَهْدُ الَّذي سأُعَاهِدُ بِهِ آلَ إِسْرائِيل، بَعْدَ تِلْكَ الأَيَّام، يَقُولُ الرَّبّ: أَنِّي أَجْعَلُ شَرَائِعِي في أَذْهَانِهِم، وأَكْتُبُهَا على قُلُوبِهِم، وأَكُونُ لَهُم إِلهًا، وهُم يَكُونُونَ لي شَعْبًا. ولَنْ يُعَلِّمَ أَحَدٌ ٱبْنَ مَدِينَتِهِ، ولا أَحَدٌ أَخَاه، قائِلاً: إِعْرِفِ الرَّبّ، لأَنَّ جَمِيعَهُم سَيَعْرِفُونَنِي، مِنْ صَغِيرِهِم إِلى كَبِيرِهِم، لأَنِّي سأَصْفَحُ عَنْ آثَامِهِم، ولَنْ أَذْكُرَ مِن بَعْدُ خَطايَاهُم». فَبِقَولِهِ: «عَهْدًا جَدِيدًا»، جَعَلَ الأَوَّلَ عَتِيقًا، ومَا يَعْتُقُ ويَشِيخُ هُوَ قَرِيبٌ مِنَ الزَّوَال”.

In speaking of ‘a new covenant’, he has made the first one obsolete. And what is obsolete and growing old will soon disappear.
Letter to the Hebrews 08/07-13: “If that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no need to look for a second one. God finds fault with them when he says: ‘The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah; not like the covenant that I made with their ancestors, on the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; for they did not continue in my covenant, and so I had no concern for them, says the Lord. This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall not teach one another or say to each other, “Know the Lord”, for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will be merciful towards their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.’In speaking of ‘a new covenant’, he has made the first one obsolete. And what is obsolete and growing old will soon disappear.”
