How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

我也是嗎? – Am I One of Them?

路加福音 Luke 11:37-54

My Sermon Notes from December 26, 2021 Full Text: 路加福音 Luke 11:37-54

37 耶穌說話的時候,有一個法利賽人請耶穌和他一起吃飯;他就進去坐席。 38 這個法利賽人見耶穌吃飯之前不洗手,覺得奇怪。 39 主對他說:“你們法利賽人把杯盤的外面洗淨,但你們裡面卻充滿了搶奪和邪惡。 40 無知的人哪,那造外面的,不也造裡面嗎? 41 只要把裡面的施捨出去,你們的一切就都潔淨了。 42 然而你們法利賽人有禍了!因為你們把薄荷、茴香和各樣菜蔬獻上十分之一,卻把公義和愛 神的事疏忽了;這些是你們應當作的,但其他的也不可疏忽。 43 你們法利賽人有禍了!因為你們喜愛會堂裡的高位和人在巿中心的問安。 44 你們有禍了!因為你們好像不顯露的墳墓,走在上面的人並不知道。”

45 律法師中有一個回答他:“老師,你這樣說,把我們也侮辱了!” 46 耶穌說:“你們律法師也有禍了,因為你們把難擔的擔子叫人擔,自己連一個指頭也不動。 47 你們有禍了!因為你們修造先知的墳墓,而那些先知正是你們祖先所殺的, 48 這樣,你們就成了證人,對你們祖先的作為表示同意;他們殺害先知,你們修造先知的墳墓。 49 所以, 神的智慧說:‘我要差遣先知和使徒到他們那裡去,有的他們要殺害,有的他們要迫害, 50-51 為要使創世以來眾先知所流的血,從亞伯的血起,直到在祭壇和聖所之間受害的撒迦利亞的血為止,都向這一代追討。’是的,我告訴你們,都要向這一代追討。 52 你們律法師有禍了!因為你們拿去知識的鑰匙,自己不進去,又阻止要進去的人。” 53 耶穌從那裡出來,經學家和法利賽人非常敵視他,質問他很多問題, 54 等機會從他的口中找把柄。

37 When Jesus had finished speaking, a Pharisee invited him to eat with him; so he went in and reclined at the table. 38 But the Pharisee was surprised when he noticed that Jesus did not first wash before the meal.

39 Then the Lord said to him, “Now then, you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness. 40 You foolish people! Did not the one who made the outside make the inside also? 41 But now as for what is inside you—be generous to the poor, and everything will be clean for you.

42 “Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenth of your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God. You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone.

43 “Woe to you Pharisees, because you love the most important seats in the synagogues and respectful greetings in the marketplaces.

44 “Woe to you, because you are like unmarked graves, which people walk over without knowing it.”

45 One of the experts in the law answered him, “Teacher, when you say these things, you insult us also.”

46 Jesus replied, “And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them.

47 “Woe to you, because you build tombs for the prophets, and it was your ancestors who killed them. 48 So you testify that you approve of what your ancestors did; they killed the prophets, and you build their tombs. 49 Because of this, God in his wisdom said, ‘I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and others they will persecute.’ 50 Therefore this generation will be held responsible for the blood of all the prophets that has been shed since the beginning of the world, 51 from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was killed between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, this generation will be held responsible for it all.

52 “Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering.”

53 When Jesus went outside, the Pharisees and the teachers of the law began to oppose him fiercely and to besiege him with questions, 54 waiting to catch him in something he might say.
