خِرَافِي تَسْمَعُ صَوْتِي، وأَنَا أَعْرِفُهَا، وهِي تَتْبَعُنِي. وأَنَا أُعْطِيهَا حَيَاةً أَبَدِيَّة، فَلَنْ تَهْلِكَ أَبَدًا، وَلَنْ يَخْطَفَهَا أَحَدٌ مِنْ يَدِي
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا10/من22حتى42/”حَانَ عِيدُ التَّجْدِيدِ في أُورَشَلِيم، وكَانَ فَصْلُ الشِّتَاء. وكَانَ يَسُوعُ يَتَمَشَّى في الهَيْكَل، في رِوَاقِ سُلَيْمَان. فَأَحَاطَ بِهِ اليَهُودُ وأَخَذُوا يَقُولُونَ لَهُ: «إِلى مَتَى تُبْقِي نُفُوسَنَا حَائِرَة؟ إِنْ كُنْتَ أَنْتَ المَسِيح، فَقُلْهُ لَنَا صَرَاحَةً». أَجَابَهُم يَسُوع: «قُلْتُهُ لَكُم، لكِنَّكُم لا تُؤْمِنُون. أَلأَعْمَالُ الَّتِي أَعْمَلُهَا أَنَا بِٱسْمِ أَبِي هِيَ تَشْهَدُ لِي. لكِنَّكُم لا تُؤْمِنُون، لأَنَّكُم لَسْتُم مِنْ خِرَافِي. خِرَافِي تَسْمَعُ صَوْتِي، وأَنَا أَعْرِفُهَا، وهِي تَتْبَعُنِي. وأَنَا أُعْطِيهَا حَيَاةً أَبَدِيَّة، فَلَنْ تَهْلِكَ أَبَدًا، وَلَنْ يَخْطَفَهَا أَحَدٌ مِنْ يَدِي. أَبِي الَّذي أَعْطَانِي إِيَّاهَا هُوَ أَعْظَمُ مِنَ الكُلّ، ولا يَقْدِرُ أَحَدٌ أَنْ يَخْطَفَهَا مِنْ يَدِ الآب. أَنَا والآبُ وَاحِد». فَأَخَذَ اليَهُودُ، مِنْ جَدِيدٍ، حِجَارَةً لِيَرْجُمُوه. قَالَ لَهُم يَسُوع: «أَعْمَالاً حَسَنَةً كَثِيرَةً أَرَيْتُكُم مِنْ عِنْدِ الآب، فَلأَيِّ عَمَلٍ مِنْهَا تَرْجُمُونِي؟». أَجَابَهُ اليَهُود: «لا لِعَمَلٍ حَسَنٍ نَرْجُمُكَ، بَلْ لِتَجْدِيف. لأَنَّكَ، وَأَنْتَ إِنْسَان، تَجْعلُ نَفْسَكَ إِلهًا».أَجَابَهُم يَسُوع: «أَمَا كُتِبَ في تَوْرَاتِكُم: أَنَا قُلْتُ إِنَّكُم آلِهَة؟ فَإِذَا كَانَتِ التَّوْرَاةُ تَدْعُو آلِهَةً أُولئِكَ الَّذِينَ صَارَتْ إِلَيْهِم كَلِمَةُ الله، ولا يُمْكِنُ أَنْ يُنْقَضَ الكِتَاب، فَكَيْفَ تَقُولُونَ لِي، أَنَا الَّذي قَدَّسَهُ الآبُ وأَرْسَلَهُ إِلى العَالَم: أَنْتَ تُجَدِّف؛ لأَنِيِّ قُلْتُ: أَنَا ٱبْنُ الله؟ إِنْ كُنْتُ لا أَعْمَلُ أَعْمَالَ أَبِي، فلا تُصَدِّقُونِي، أَمَّا إِذَا كُنْتُ أَعْمَلُهَا، وإِنْ كُنْتُم لا تُصَدِّقُونِي، فَصَدِّقُوا هذِهِ الأَعْمَال، لِكَي تَعْرِفُوا وتُؤْمِنُوا أَنَّ الآبَ فِيَّ وَأَنِّي في الآب». فَحَاوَلُوا مِنْ جَدِيدٍ أَنْ يَقْبِضُوا عَلَيْه، فَأَفْلَتَ مِنْ يَدِهِم. وعَادَ يَسُوعُ إِلى عِبْرِ الأُرْدُنّ، إِلى حَيْثُ كَانَ يُوحَنَّا يُعَمِّدْ مِنْ قَبْلُ، فَأَقَامَ هُنَاك. وأَتَى إِلَيْهِ كَثِيرُونَ وكَانُوا يَقُولُون: «لَمْ يَصْنَعْ يُوحَنَّا أَيَّ آيَة، ولكِنْ، كُلُّ مَا قَالَهُ في هذَا الرَّجُلِ كَانَ حَقًّا». فآمَنَ بِهِ هُنَاكَ كَثِيرُون”.

My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish
John 10/22-42: “At that time the festival of the Dedication took place in Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon. So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, ‘How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.’ Jesus answered, ‘I have told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name testify to me; but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep. My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand. What my Father has given me is greater than all else, and no one can snatch it out of the Father’s hand.The Father and I are one.’ The Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus replied, ‘I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these are you going to stone me?’ The Jews answered, ‘It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you, but for blasphemy, because you, though only a human being, are making yourself God.’Jesus answered, ‘Is it not written in your law, “I said, you are gods”?If those to whom the word of God came were called “gods” and the scripture cannot be annulled. can you say that the one whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world is blaspheming because I said, “I am God’s Son”? If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me. But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.’ Then they tried to arrest him again, but he escaped from their hands. He went away again across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing earlier, and he remained there. Many came to him, and they were saying, ‘John performed no sign, but everything that John said about this man was true.’And many believed in him there.”

قَرَّبَ المسيح نَفْسَهُ للهِ بِالرُّوحِ الأَزَلِيِّ قُرْبَانًا لا عَيْبَ فِيه، يُطَهِّرُ ضَمِيرَنَا منَ الأَعْمَالِ المَيْتَة، لِنَعْبُدَ اللهَ الحَيّ
الرسالة إلى العبرانيّين09/من11حتى15/يا إِخوَتِي، أَمَّا المَسِيحُ فَقَدْ ظَهَرَ عَظِيمَ أَحْبَارِ الخَيْرَاتِ الآتِيَة، وٱجْتَازَ المَسْكِنَ الأَعْظَمَ والأَكْمَل، غَيرَ المَصْنُوعِ بِالأَيْدِي، أَيْ لَيْسَ مِن هذِهِ الخَليقَة، فَدَخَلَ إِلى قُدْسِ الأَقْدَاسِ مَرَّةً واحِدَة، لا بِدَمِ التُّيُوسِ والعُجُول، بَلْ بِدَمِهِ هُوَ، فَحَقَّقَ لنَا فِدَاءً أَبَدِيًّا. فإِذا كانَ رَشُّ دَمِ التُّيُوسِ والثِّيْرَانِ ورَمَادِ العِجْلَةِ على المُنَجَّسِين، يُقَدِّسُ أَجْسَادَهُم فَيُطَهِّرُهُم، فَكَم بِالأَحْرَى دَمُ الْمَسِيح، الَّذي قَرَّبَ نَفْسَهُ للهِ بِالرُّوحِ الأَزَلِيِّ قُرْبَانًا لا عَيْبَ فِيه، يُطَهِّرُ ضَمِيرَنَا منَ الأَعْمَالِ المَيْتَة، لِنَعْبُدَ اللهَ الحَيّ! ولِذلِكَ فَهُوَ الوَسِيطُ لِعَهْدٍ جَدِيد، وقَدْ صَارَ مَوتُهُ فِدَاءً لِتَعَدِّيَاتِ العَهْدِ الأَوَّل، حَتَّى يَنَالَ بِهِ المَدْعُوُّونَ وَعْدَ الْمِيْرَاثِ الأَبَدِيّ.

Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to worship the living God!
Letter to the Hebrews 09/11-15: “When Christ came as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation), he entered once for all into the Holy Place, not with the blood of goats and calves, but with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls, with the sprinkling of the ashes of a heifer, sanctifies those who have been defiled so that their flesh is purified, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to worship the living God! For this reason he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, because a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions under the first covenant.”
