主日講道 – 四旬期第三主日 (2015年3月8日)

恭讀聖若望福音 2:13-25

猶太人的逾越節近了,耶穌便上耶路撒冷。在殿院裡,耶穌看見賣牛、羊、鴿子的,及坐在錢莊上,兌換銀錢的人。
耶穌於是用繩索做了一條鞭子,把眾人連羊帶牛,都從殿院趕出去,又傾倒了換錢者的銀錢,推翻了他們的桌子。
耶穌對賣鴿子的人說:「把這些東西從這裡拿出去,不要使我父的殿宇成為商場。」耶穌的門徒就想起了經上記載的話:「我對你殿宇所懷的熱忱,把我耗盡。」
猶太人便問耶穌說:「你顯什麼神蹟給我們看,證明你有權做這些事?」
耶穌回答他們說:「你們拆毀這座聖殿,三天之內,我要把它重建起來。」
猶太人就說:「這座聖殿建築了四十六年,你在三天之內,就能把它重建起來嗎?」
但耶穌所說的聖所,是指他自己的身體。所以,當耶穌從死者中復活以後,耶穌的門徒就想起了耶穌曾說過這話,便相信了聖經,及耶穌說過的話。
當耶穌在耶路撒冷過逾越節時,有許多人看見他所行的神蹟,便信從了他;耶穌卻不信任他們,因為他認識所有的人;他並不需要誰告訴他,人是怎樣的,因為他洞悉人的內心。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 2:13-25

13 The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers at their business. 15 And making a whip of cords, he drove them all, with the sheep and oxen, out of the temple; and he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. 16 And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; you shall not make my Father’s house a house of trade.” 17 His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for thy house will consume me.” 18 The Jews then said to him, “What sign have you to show us for doing this?” 19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?” 21 But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken. 23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover feast, many believed in his name when they saw the signs which he did; 24 but Jesus did not trust himself to them, 25 because he knew all men and needed no one to bear witness of man; for he himself knew what was in man.

主日福音 若 2:13-25

猶太人的逾越節近了,耶穌便上了耶路撒冷。在殿院裡,衪發現了賣牛、羊、鴿子的, 和坐在錢莊上兌換銀錢的人,就用繩索做了一條鞭子,把眾人連羊帶牛,從殿院都趕出去,傾倒了換錢者的銀錢,推翻了他們的桌子;給賣鴿子的人說:「把這些東西從這裡拿出去,不要使我父的殿宇成為商場。」衪的門徒就想起了經上記載的:『我對你殿宇所懷的熱忱,把我耗盡。』的話。猶太人便追問衪說:「你給我們顯什麼神跡,證明你有權柄作這些事?」耶穌回答他們說:「你們拆毀這座聖殿,三天之內,我要把它重建起來。」猶太人就說:「這座聖殿建築了四十六年,你在三天之內就會重建起它來嗎?」但耶穌所提的聖所,是指衪自己的身體。所以,當衪所死者中復活以後,衪的門徒就想起了衪曾說過這話,便相信了聖經和耶穌說過的話。當耶穌在耶路撒冷過逾越節慶節時,有許多人看見衪所行的神跡,便信從了衪;耶穌卻不信任他們,因為衪認識眾人;衪並不需要誰告訴衪,人是怎樣的,因為衪認識人心裡有什麼。

 

默 想

  • 今天這一段經文,是最好用來解釋經文不能按字面意思解。
  • 連耶穌也沒說明聖殿是指祂自己的身體,而是聖史若望在敘述中加以說明。
  • 所以,若今天有人打你左面臉,你不用給他打左面,我們要學習背後的意思。
  • 如此說來,所謂的世界末日,是否必然如文字的描述,還是有其他可能性?
