لأن الَّذي يُقَدِّسُ والمُقَدَّسِينَ كِلَيْهِمَا مِنْ أَصْلٍ وَاحِد. لِذلِكَ لا يَسْتَحْيِي أَنْ يَدْعُوَهُم إِخْوَة. فيَقُول: سَأُبَشِّرُ بِٱسْمِكَ إِخْوَتي، وفي وَسَطِ الجَماعَةِ أُنْشِدُ لَكَ
الرسالة إلى العبرانيّين02/من05حتى12/:”يا إخوَتِي، إِنَّ اللهَ لَمْ يُخْضِعْ لِلمَلائِكَةِ العَالَمَ الآتي الَّذي نَتَكَلَّمُ عَنْهُ. وقَد شَهِدَ أَحَدُهُم في مَوضِعٍ مِنَ الكِتَابِ قَال: «ما الإِنْسَانُ حَتَّى تَذْكُرَهُ؟ وٱبْنُ الإِنْسَانِ حَتَّى تَفْتَقِدَهُ؟ نَقَصْتَهُ عنِ المَلائِكَةِ قَلِيلاً، وبِالمَجْدِ والكَرَامَةِ كَلَّلْتَهُ.وأَخْضَعْتَ كُلَّ شَيءٍ تَحْتَ قَدَمَيْه!». فَبِإِخْضَاعِهِ لَهُ كُلَّ شَيء، لَمْ يَتْرُكْ شَيْئًا غَيْرَ خَاضِعٍ لَهُ. والحَالُ فإِنَّنَا لا نَرَى بَعْدُ أَنَّ كُلَّ شَيءٍ قَدْ أُخْضِعَ لَهُ. أَمَّا الَّذي نَقَصَ عَنِ الْمَلائِكَةِ قَلِيلاً، فَهُوَ يَسُوع، الَّذي نَرَاهُ مُكَلَّلاً بِالمَجْدِ والكَرَامَة، لأَنَّهُ قَاسَى المَوت. وهكَذَا بِنِعْمَةِ اللهِ ذَاقَ المَوْتَ مِنْ أَجْلِ كُلِّ إِنْسَان. وقَد كَانَ يَليقُ بِاللهِ الَّذي كُلُّ شَيءٍ مِن أَجْلِهِ، وكُلُّ شَيءٍ بِهِ، وهُوَ الَّذي يَقُودُ إِلى المَجدِ أَبْنَاءً كَثِيرِين، أَنْ يَجْعَلَ يَسُوعَ رائِدَ خَلاصِهِم كَامِلاً بِالآلام. لأَنَّ الَّذي يُقَدِّسُ والمُقَدَّسِينَ كِلَيْهِمَا مِنْ أَصْلٍ وَاحِد. لِذلِكَ لا يَسْتَحْيِي أَنْ يَدْعُوَهُم إِخْوَة. فيَقُول: «سَأُبَشِّرُ بِٱسْمِكَ إِخْوَتي، وفي وَسَطِ الجَماعَةِ أُنْشِدُ لَكَ».”

For the one who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. For this reason Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, saying, ‘I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters, in the midst of the congregation I will praise you
Letter to the Hebrews 02/05-12:”God did not subject the coming world, about which we are speaking, to angels. But someone has testified somewhere, ‘What are human beings that you are mindful of them, or mortals, that you care for them? You have made them for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned them with glory and honour, subjecting all things under their feet.’ Now in subjecting all things to them, God left nothing outside their control. As it is, we do not yet see everything in subjection to them, but we do see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honour because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. It was fitting that God, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many children to glory, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For the one who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. For this reason Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, saying, ‘I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters, in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.”.

 

انَّهُ خَيْرٌ لَنَا أَنْ يَمُوتَ رَجُلٌ وَاحِدٌ فِدَى الشَّعْبِ ولا تَهْلِكَ الأُمَّةُ بِأَسْرِهَا
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا11/من47حتى54/:”عَقَدَ الأَحْبَارُ والفَرِّيسِيُّونَ مَجْلِسًا، وقَالُوا: «مَاذَا نَعْمَل؟ فَإِنَّ هذَا الرَّجُلَ يَصْنَعُ آيَاتٍ كَثِيرَة! إِنْ تَرَكْنَاهُ هكَذَا يُؤْمِنُ بِهِ الجَميع، فَيَأْتِي الرُّومَانُ ويُدَمِّرُونَ هَيْكَلَنا وأُمَّتَنَا». فَقَالَ لَهُم وَاحِدٌ مِنْهُم، وهُوَ قَيَافَا، عَظِيمُ الأَحْبَارِ في تِلْكَ السَّنَة: «أَنْتُم لا تُدْرِكُونَ شَيْئًا، ولا تُفَكِّرُونَ أَنَّهُ خَيْرٌ لَنَا أَنْ يَمُوتَ رَجُلٌ وَاحِدٌ فِدَى الشَّعْبِ ولا تَهْلِكَ الأُمَّةُ بِأَسْرِهَا!». ومَا قَالَ ذلِكَ مِنْ تِلْقَاءِ نَفْسِهِ، ولكِنْ إذْ كَانَ عَظِيمَ الأَحْبَارِ في تِلْكَ السَّنَة، تَنبَّأَ بِأَنَّ يَسُوعَ سَيَمُوتُ فِدَى الأُمَّة. ولَيْسَ فِدَى الأُمَّةِ وَحْدَهَا، بَلْ أَيْضًا لِيَجْمَعَ في وَاحِدٍ أَوْلادَ اللهِ المُشَتَّتِين. فَعَزَمُوا مِنْ ذلِكَ اليَوْمِ عَلى قَتْلِ يَسُوع. فَمَا عَادَ يَتَجَوَّلُ عَلَنًا بَيْنَ اليَهُود، بَلْ مَضَى مِنْ هُنَاكَ إِلى نَاحِيَةٍ قَريبَةٍ مِنَ البَرِّيَّة، إِلى مَدينَةٍ تُدْعَى إِفْرَائِيمَ، وأَقَامَ فيهَا مَعَ تَلامِيذِهِ

It is better for you to have one man die for the people than to have the whole nation destroyed
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 11/47-54:”So the chief priests and the Pharisees called a meeting of the council, and said, ‘What are we to do? This man is performing many signs.If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and destroy both our holy place and our nation.’But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, ‘You know nothing at all! You do not understand that it is better for you to have one man die for the people than to have the whole nation destroyed.’He did not say this on his own, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus was about to die for the nation, and not for the nation only, but to gather into one the dispersed children of God. So from that day on they planned to put him to death. Jesus therefore no longer walked about openly among the Jews, but went from there to a town called Ephraim in the region near the wilderness; and he remained there with the disciples.”
