神父講道 – 四旬期第五週 (週五) (2011年4月15日)

恭讀聖若望福音 10:31-42
那時候,猶太人又拿起石頭來,要砸死耶穌。耶穌向他們說:「我賴我父給你們顯示了許多善事,為了那一件,你們要砸死我呢?」猶太人回答說:「為了善事,我們不會砸死你,而是為了褻瀆的話,因為你是人,卻把你自己當作天主。」耶穌卻向他們說:「在你們的法律上不是記載著:『我說過:你們是神』麼?如果,那些蒙受天主話的,天主尚且稱他們為神——而經書是不能廢棄的——那麼,父所祝聖並派遣到世界上來的,因為說過:我是天主子,你們就說:你說褻瀆的話麼?假使我不作我父的工作,你們就不必信我,但若是我作了,你們縱然不肯信我,至少要信這些工作,如此你們必定認出父在我內,我在父內。」他們又企圖捉拿他,他卻從他們手中走脫了。
耶穌又回到約旦河對岸,若翰先前施洗的地方去了,並住在那裏。有許多人來到他那裏說:「若翰固然沒有行過神蹟,但苦翰對於這人所說的一切,都是真的。」許多人就在那裏信了耶穌。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 10:31-42

31 The Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of these do you stone me?” 33 The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we stone you but for blasphemy; because you, being a man, make yourself God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, `I said, you are Gods’? 35 If he called them Gods to whom the word of God came (and scripture cannot be broken), 36 do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, `You are blaspheming,’ because I said, `I am the Son of God’? 37 If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; 38 but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.” 39 Again they tried to arrest him, but he escaped from their hands. 40 He went away again across the Jordan to the place where John at first baptized, and there he remained. 41 And many came to him; and they said, “John did no sign, but everything that John said about this man was true.” 42 And many believed in him there.

若10:31-42 (其他經文──耶20:10-13   詠18)
猶太人又拿起石頭來,要砸死耶穌。耶穌向他們說:「我賴我父給你們顯示了許多善事,為了那一件,你們要砸死我呢?」猶太人回答說:「為了善事,我們不會砸死你,而是為了褻瀆的話,因為你是人,卻把你自己當作天主。」耶穌卻向他們說:「在你們的法律上不是記載著:『我說過:你們是神』麼?如果,那些蒙受天主話的,天主尚且稱他們為神——而經書是不能廢棄的——那麼,父所祝聖並派遣到世界上來的,因為說過:我是天主子,你們就說:你說褻瀆的話麼?假使我不作我父的工作,你們就不必信我,但若是我作了,你們縱然不肯信我,至少要信這些工作,如此你們必定認出父在我內,我在父內。」他們又企圖捉拿他,他卻從他們手中走脫了。
耶穌又回到約旦河對岸,若翰先前施洗的地方去了,並住在那裡。有許多人來到他那裡說:「若翰固然沒有行過神蹟,但若翰對於這人所說的一切,都是真的。」許多人就在那裡信了耶穌。

默 想

  • 耶穌應該明知猶太人會對祂的說話反感,為何祂還是這樣說呢?
  • 耶穌是想改變他們的宗教觀念吧!耶穌不單要對他們說明自己是天主子,也要他們明白,其實他們也能和祂一樣,成為天主之子。
  • 我們也一樣,若做了基督徒,卻不敢同時也不發現自己也是天主之子,也實在太可惜了。
  • 那麼,做了天主之子,我們也應做父的工作,才不負此名;又或許,我們不想做父的工作,所以也不願被稱為天主之子?
