I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends/لَسْتُ أَدْعُوكُم بَعْدُ عَبِيدًا، لأَنَّ العَبْدَ لا يَعْلَمُ مَا يَعْمَلُ سَيِّدُهُ، بَلْ دَعَوْتُكُم أَحِبَّاءَ

27

لَسْتُ أَدْعُوكُم بَعْدُ عَبِيدًا، لأَنَّ العَبْدَ لا يَعْلَمُ مَا يَعْمَلُ سَيِّدُهُ، بَلْ دَعَوْتُكُم أَحِبَّاءَ، لأَنِّي أَعْلَمْتُكُم بِكُلِّ مَا سَمِعْتُهُ مِنْ أَبي
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا15/من15حتى17/:”قالَ الرَبُّ يَسوعُ لِتلاميذِهِ: «لَسْتُ أَدْعُوكُم بَعْدُ عَبِيدًا، لأَنَّ العَبْدَ لا يَعْلَمُ مَا يَعْمَلُ سَيِّدُهُ، بَلْ دَعَوْتُكُم أَحِبَّاءَ، لأَنِّي أَعْلَمْتُكُم بِكُلِّ مَا سَمِعْتُهُ مِنْ أَبي. لَمْ تَخْتَارُونِي أَنْتُم، بَلْ أَنَا ٱخْتَرْتُكُم، وأَقَمْتُكُم لِتَذْهَبُوا وتَحْمِلُوا ثَمَرًا، ويَدُومَ ثَمَرُكُم، فَيُعطيَكُمُ الآبُ كُلَّ مَا تَطْلُبُونَهُ بِٱسْمِي.
بِهذَا أُوصِيكُم، أَنْ تُحِبُّوا بَعْضُكُم بَعْضًا.”

ولَمَّا صَلَّوا، زُلْزِلَ ٱلمَكَانُ حَيْثُ كَانُوا مُجْتَمِعِين، وٱمْتَلأُوا كُلُّهُم مِنَ ٱلرُّوحِ ٱلقُدُس، وأَخَذُوا يُعْلِنونَ كَلِمَةَ ٱللهِ بِجُرأَة
سفر أعمال الرسل04/من23حتى31/:”ولَمَّا أُطْلِقَ بُطْرُسُ ويُوحَنَّا، أَتَيَا إِلى رِفَاقِهِمَا، وأَخْبَرَاهُمَا بِكُلِّ مَا قَالَ لَهُمَا ٱلأَحْبَارُ وٱلشُّيُوخ. ولَمَّا سَمِعُوا ذلِكَ، رَفَعُوا أَصْوَاتَهُم إِلى ٱللهِ بنَفْسٍ وَاحِدَة، وقَالُوا: «أَيُّهَا ٱلسَّيِّد، أَنْتَ ٱلَّذِي صَنَعْتَ ٱلسَّماءَ وٱلأَرْضَ وٱلبَحْرَ وكُلَّ ما فيها. أَنتَ ٱلَّذِي قُلْتَ بِٱلرُّوحِ ٱلقُدُس، بِفَمِ دَاوُدَ فَتَاك: لِمَاذَا ٱرْتَجَّتِ ٱلأُمَم، وهَذَّتِ ٱلشُّعُوبُ بِٱلبَاطِل؟ قَامَ مُلوكُ ٱلأَرْض، وٱلعُظَمَاءُ ٱئْتَمَرُوا مَعًا، عَلى ٱلرَّبِّ وعَلى مَسِيحِهِ! أَجَلْ بِٱلحَقِيقَة، لَقَدِ ٱئْتَمَرَ في هذِهِ ٱلمَدِينَةِ هِيرُودُسُ وبِيلاطُس، مَعَ ٱلأُمَمِ وشُعُوبِ إِسْرَائِيل، عَلى يَسُوعَ فَتَاكَ ٱلقُدُّوس، ٱلَّذِي مسَحْتَهُ، لِيَفْعَلوا كُلَّ مَا سَبقَتْ فرَسَمَتْ يَدُكَ ومَشِيئَتُكَ أَنْ يَكُون. وٱلآن، يَا رَبّ، أُنْظُرْ إِلى تَهْدِيدَاتِهِم، وَٱمْنَحْ عَبِيدَكَ أَنْ يُعْلِنُوا كَلِمَتَكَ بِكُلِّ جُرأَة، بَاسِطًا يَدَكَ لِيَجْرِيَ ٱلشِّفَاءُ وٱلآيَاتُ وٱلعَجَائِبُ بِٱسْمِ يَسُوع، فَتَاكَ ٱلقُدُّوس!». ولَمَّا صَلَّوا، زُلْزِلَ ٱلمَكَانُ حَيْثُ كَانُوا مُجْتَمِعِين، وٱمْتَلأُوا كُلُّهُم مِنَ ٱلرُّوحِ ٱلقُدُس، وأَخَذُوا يُعْلِنونَ كَلِمَةَ ٱللهِ بِجُرأَة”.’

I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 15/15-17/:”I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name. I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another.”

 

When they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God with boldness
Acts of the Apostles 04/23-31/:”After they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them. When they heard it, they raised their voices together to God and said, ‘Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth, the sea, and everything in them, it is you who said by the Holy Spirit through our ancestor David, your servant: “Why did the Gentiles rage, and the peoples imagine vain things? The kings of the earth took their stand, and the rulers have gathered together against the Lord and against his Messiah.” For in this city, in fact, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place. And now, Lord, look at their threats, and grant to your servants to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.’ When they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God with boldness.”
