قالَ الربُّ يَسوعُ: «كَلَّمْتُكُم في شُؤُونِ الأَرْضِ ولا تُؤْمِنُون، فَكَيْفَ تُؤْمِنُونَ إِذَا كَلَّمْتُكُم في شُؤُونِ السَّمَاء؟/If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things

قالَ الربُّ يَسوعُ: «كَلَّمْتُكُم في شُؤُونِ الأَرْضِ ولا تُؤْمِنُون، فَكَيْفَ تُؤْمِنُونَ إِذَا كَلَّمْتُكُم في شُؤُونِ السَّمَاء؟
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا03/من12حتى15/:”قالَ الربُّ يَسوعُ: «كَلَّمْتُكُم في شُؤُونِ الأَرْضِ ولا تُؤْمِنُون، فَكَيْفَ تُؤْمِنُونَ إِذَا كَلَّمْتُكُم في شُؤُونِ السَّمَاء؟ مَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ صَعِدَ إِلى السَّمَاء، إِلاَّ الَّذي نَزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاء، أَي إِبْنُ الإِنْسَان. وكَمَا رَفَعَ مُوسَى الحَيَّةَ في البَرِّيَّة، كَذلِكَ يَجِبُ أَنْ يُرْفَعَ ٱبْنُ الإِنْسَان، لِكَي تَكُونَ لِكُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ بِهِ حَيَاةٌ أَبَدِيَّة.”

If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 03/12-15/:”If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.”

فأَنَأ أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَعِيشَ في الحِرْمَان، كَمَا أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَعِيشَ في الوَفْرَة. فَإِنِّي في كُلِّ وَقْتٍ وكُلِّ حَالٍ تَدَرَّبْتُ عَلى الشِّبَعِ والجُوع، وعلى البَحْبُوحَةِ والفَاقَة. إِنِّي أَسْتَطِيعُ كُلَّ شَيءٍ بِالَّذي يُقَوِّينِي
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل فيلبّي04/من08حتى14/:”يا إخوَتِي، كُلُّ مَا هُوَ حَقّ، وكُلُّ مَا هُوَ شَرِيف، وَكُلُّ مَا هُوَ بَارّ، وكُلُّ مَا هُوَ نَقِيّ، وكُلُّ مَا هُوَ مُحَبَّب، وكُلُّ مَا هُوَ مَمْدُوح، وكُلُّ مَا فِيهِ فَضِيلَة، وكُلُّ مَا فيهِ مَدِيح، فَفِيهِ فَكِّرُوا. وما تَعَلَّمْتُمُوهُ وتَلَقَّيْتُمُوهُ وسَمِعْتُمُوهُ مِنِّي، ورأَيْتُمُوهُ فيَّ، فإِيَّاهُ ٱعْمَلُوا. وإِلهُ السَّلامِ يَكُونُ مَعَكُم! لَقَدْ فَرِحْتُ في الرَّبِّ فَرَحًا عَظِيمًا، لأَنَّ ٱهْتِمَامَكُم بِي عَادَ أَخِيرًا فأَزْهَر. وكُنْتُم تَهْتَمُّون، غَيْرَ أَنَّ الفُرْصَةَ لَمْ تَسْنَحْ لَكُم. ولا أَقُولُ هذَا عَنْ حَاجَة، لأَنِّي تَعَلَّمْتُ أَنْ أَكْتَفِيَ بِمَا أَنَا عَلَيْه. فأَنَأ أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَعِيشَ في الحِرْمَان، كَمَا أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَعِيشَ في الوَفْرَة. فَإِنِّي في كُلِّ وَقْتٍ وكُلِّ حَالٍ تَدَرَّبْتُ عَلى الشِّبَعِ والجُوع، وعلى البَحْبُوحَةِ والفَاقَة.إِنِّي أَسْتَطِيعُ كُلَّ شَيءٍ بِالَّذي يُقَوِّينِي. مَعَ ذَلِكَ فقَد أَحْسَنْتُم عِندَمَا شَارَكْتُمُونِي في ضِيقِي.”

I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need
Letter to the Philippians 04/08-14/:”Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you. I rejoice in the Lord greatly that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned for me, but had no opportunity to show it. Not that I am referring to being in need; for I have learned to be content with whatever I have. I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. In any case, it was kind of you to share my distress.”
