“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
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا15/من15حتى21/”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. إِنْ يُبْغِضْكُمُ العَالَم، فَٱعْلَمُوا أَنَّهُ أَبْغَضَنِي قَبْلَكُم. لَوْ كُنْتُم مِنَ العَالَمِ لَكَانَ العَالَمُ يُحِبُّ مَا هُوَ لَهُ. ولكِنْ، لأَنَّكُم لَسْتُم مِنَ العَالَم، بَلْ أَنَا ٱخْتَرْتُكُم مِنَ العَالَم، لِذلِكَ يُبْغِضُكُمُ العَالَم. تَذَكَّرُوا الكَلِمَةَ الَّتِي قُلْتُهَا لَكُم: لَيْسَ عَبْدٌ أَعْظَمَ مِنْ سَيِّدِهِ. فَإِنْ كَانُوا قَدِ ٱضْطَهَدُونِي فَسَوْفَ يَضْطَهِدُونَكُم أَيْضًا. وإِنْ كَانُوا قَدْ حَفِظُوا كَلِمَتِي فَسَوْفَ يَحْفَظُونَ كَلِمَتَكُم أَيْضًا. غَيرَ أَنَّهُم سَيَفْعَلُونَ بِكُم هذَا كُلَّهُ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱسْمِي، لأَنَّهُم لا يَعْرِفُونَ الَّذي أَرْسَلَنِي.”

I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father
John 15/15-21: “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. ‘If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me before it hated you. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. Because you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, “Servants are not greater than their master.” If they persecuted me, they will persecute you; if they kept my word, they will keep yours also. But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me.

فَكَمَا أَنَّهُ بِزَلَّةِ إِنْسَانٍ وَاحِدٍ كَانَ الهَلاكُ لِجَميعِ النَّاس، كذلِكَ بِبِرِّ إِنْسَانٍ وَاحِدٍ كَانَ لِجَميعِ النَّاسِ تَبْرِيرُ الحَيَاة
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل رومة05/من17حتى21/يا إِخوَتي، إِنْ كَانَ بِزَلَّةِ إِنْسَانٍ وَاحِدٍ قَدْ مَلَكَ المَوْت، فَكَمْ بِالأَحْرَى الَّذينَ يَنَالُونَ فَيْضَ النِّعْمَةِ وَعَطِيَّةَ البِرّ، يَمْلِكُونَ في الحَيَاةِ بِإِنْسَانٍ وَاحِد، هُوَ يَسُوعُ المَسِيح! إِذًا، فَكَمَا أَنَّهُ بِزَلَّةِ إِنْسَانٍ وَاحِدٍ كَانَ الهَلاكُ لِجَميعِ النَّاس، كذلِكَ بِبِرِّ إِنْسَانٍ وَاحِدٍ كَانَ لِجَميعِ النَّاسِ تَبْرِيرُ الحَيَاة. فكَمَا أَنَّهُ بِعُصْيَانِ إِنْسَانٍ وَاحِدٍ جُعِلَ الكَثيرُونَ خَطَأَة، كَذلِكَ بِطَاعَةِ إِنْسَانٍ وَاحِدٍ يُجْعَلُ الكَثيرُونَ أَبْرَارًا. أَمَّا الشِّرِيعَةُ فقَدِ ٱنْدَسَّتْ لِكَيْ تَكْثُرَ الزَّلَّة، وحَيْثُمَا كَثُرَتِ الخَطيئَةُ فَاضَتِ النِّعْمَة؛ حَتَّى إِنَّهُ كَمَا مَلَكَتِ الخَطيئَةُ بِالمَوْت، كَذلِكَ تَمْلِكُ النِّعْمَةُ بِالبِرِّ لِلحَيَاةِ الأَبَدِيَّةِ بِيَسُوعَ المَسِيحِ رَبِّنَا.

As one man’s trespass led to condemnation for all, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all
Letter to the Romans 05/17-21: “If, because of the one man’s trespass, death exercised dominion through that one, much more surely will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness exercise dominion in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. Therefore just as one man’s trespass led to condemnation for all, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all. For just as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. But law came in, with the result that the trespass multiplied; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, just as sin exercised dominion in death, so grace might also exercise dominion through justification leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
