神父講道 – 聖誕八日慶期第六日 (週四) (2010年12月30日)

恭讀聖路加福音 2:36-40
又有一位女先知亞納,是阿協爾支派法奴耳的女兒,已上了年紀。她出閣後,與丈夫同居了七年,以後就守寡,直到八十四歲。她齋戒祈禱,晝夜事奉天主,總不離開聖殿。正在那時刻,她也前來稱讚天主,並向一切希望耶路撒冷得救贖的人,講論嬰孩耶穌。
耶穌的父母他們按著上主的法律,行完了一切,便返回了加里肋亞,他們的本城納匝肋。孩子漸漸長大而強壯,充滿智慧,天主的恩寵常在他身上。
—基督的福音。

(The Sixth Day in the Octave of Christmas – Thursday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:36-40

36 And there was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phan’u-el, of the tribe of Asher; she was of a great age, having lived with her husband seven years from her virginity, 37 and as a widow till she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day. 38 And coming up at that very hour she gave thanks to God, and spoke of him to all who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem. 39 And when they had performed everything according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city, Nazareth. 40 And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路2:36-40 (其他經文──若一2:12-17  詠96)
又有一位女先知亞納,是阿協爾支派法奴耳的女兒,已上了年紀。她出閣後,與丈夫同居了七年,以後就守寡,直到八十四歲。她齋戒祈禱,晝夜事奉天主,總不離開聖殿。正在那時刻,她也前來稱讚天主,並向一切希望耶路撒冷得救贖的人,講論嬰孩耶穌。
  耶穌的父母他們按著上主的法律,行完了一切,便返回了加里肋亞,他們的本城納匝肋。孩子漸漸長大而強壯,充滿智慧,天主的恩寵常在他身上。

默 想

  • 路加和瑪竇的描述,兩個只能有一個是對的。瑪竇說耶穌一出生便逃難往埃及;路加則說耶穌第八天行了割損及獻於聖殿後,便返回加里肋亞。
  • 由此證明,每位作者都有自己想述說的「神學思想」。所以,最近坊間有一本書名為《製造耶穌》,原因就是在此。
  • 那麼,我們能否找到耶穌的真相呢?可以的,很多專家就幫助我們做了這些功夫。
  • 最重要的,沒有任何這些值得信賴的專家,做出的研究顯示耶穌是騙子。相反的是,這些專家的研究令更多沒有信仰的人更敬佩耶穌,實行祂的教導。
