恭讀聖路加福音 4:16-30

那時候,耶穌來到了納匝肋,自己曾受教養的地方;按他的習慣,就在安息日那天進了會堂,並站起來要誦讀。有人把依撒意亞先知書遞給他;他遂展開書卷,找到了一處,上邊寫說:「上主的神臨於我身上,因為他給我傅了油,派遣我向貧窮人傳報喜訊,向俘虜宣告釋放,向盲者宣告復明,使受壓迫者獲得自由,宣佈上主恩慈之年。」他把書卷捲起來,交給侍役,就坐下了。會堂內眾人的眼睛都注視著他。他便開始對他們說:「你們剛才聽過的這段聖經,今天應驗了。」眾人都稱讚他,驚奇他口中所說的動聽的話。並且說:「這不是若瑟的兒子嗎?」他回答他們說:「你們必定要對我說這句俗話:醫生,醫治你自己吧!我們聽說你在葛法翁所行的一切,也在你的家鄉這裏行吧!」他又說:「我實在告訴你們:沒有一個先知在本鄉受悅納的。我據實告訴你們:在厄里亞時代,天閉塞了三年零六個月,遍地起了大饑荒,在以色列原有許多寡婦,厄里亞並沒有被派到她們中一個那裏去,而只到了漆冬匝爾法特的一個寡婦那裏。在厄里叟先知時代,在以色列有許多癩病人。他們中沒有一個得潔淨的,只有敘利亞的納阿曼。」在會堂中聽見這話的人,都忿怒填胸,起來把他趕出城外,領他到了山崖上——他們的城是建在山上的——要把他推下去。他卻由他們中間過去走了。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 4:16-30

16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up; and he went to the synagogue, as his custom was, on the Sabbath day. And he stood up to read; 17 and there was given to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. He opened the book and found the place where it was written, 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, 19 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” 20 And he closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant, and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. 21 And he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” 22 And all spoke well of him, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth; and they said, “Is not this Joseph’s son?”
23 And he said to them, “Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, `Physician, heal yourself; what we have heard you did at Capernaum, do here also in your own country.'” 24 And he said, “Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his own country. 25 But in truth, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when there came a great famine over all the land; 26 and Elijah was sent to none of them but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 27 And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Elisha; and none of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.” 28 When they heard this, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. 29 And they rose up and put him out of the city, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw him down headlong. 30 But passing through the midst of them he went away.

路4:16-30  (得前 [帖前] 4:13-18  詠96)

耶穌來到了納匝肋(拿撒勒),自己曾受教養的地方;按他的習慣,就在安息日那天進了會堂,並站起來要誦讀。有人把依撒意亞(以賽亞)先知書遞給他;他遂展開書卷,找到了一處,上邊寫說:「上主的神臨於我身上,因為他給我傅了油,派遣我向貧窮人傳報喜訊,向俘虜宣告釋放,向盲者宣告復明,使受壓迫者獲得自由,宣佈上主恩慈之年。」他把書卷捲起來,交給侍役,就坐下了。會堂內眾人的眼睛都注視著他。他便開始對他們說:「你們剛才聽過的這段聖經,今天應驗了。」眾人都稱讚他,驚奇他口中所說的動聽的話。並且說:「這不是若瑟的兒子嗎?」他回答他們說:「你們必定要對我說這句俗話:醫生,醫治你自己吧!我們聽說你在葛法翁(迦百農)所行的一切,也在你的家鄉這裡行吧!」
他又說:「我實在告訴你們:沒有一個先知在本鄉受悅納的。我據實告訴你們:在厄里亞(以利亞)時代,天閉塞了三年零六個月,遍地起了大饑荒,在以色列原有許多寡婦,厄里亞並沒有被派到她們中一個那裡去,而只到了漆冬匝爾法特的一個寡婦那裡。在厄里叟(以利沙)先知時代,在以色列有許多癩病人。他們中沒有一個得潔淨的,只有敘利亞的納阿曼(乃縵)。」在會堂中聽見這話的人,都忿怒填胸,起來把他趕出城外,領他到了山崖上——他們的城是建在山上的——要把他推下去。他卻由他們中間過去走了。

 

默 想

  • 耶穌引述依撒意亞先知書這番美麗的說話,鐵一般的喜訊,讓人見到不可能成為可能的意思,祂又以這番引述,告訴眾人這一切已應驗了。祂的連番舉動迅間吸引眾人的注視,他們驚奇祂說話的動聽,但這不足以使也們接受祂就是默西亞(彌賽亞),耶穌只是他們熟悉的若瑟和瑪利亞的兒子。
  • 厄里亞與寡婦、厄里叟與納阿曼,兩個例證均表明,上主施恩予人,不看人的種族,而看人的信心,眾人不滿耶穌的話,皆因祂在讚譽外邦人。
  • 我們可會因為耶穌臨在我們的心中,而相信祂在我們生命中的作工?相信將不可能成為可能?奇蹟不是已經在我們身上發生了嗎?不是變魔術,而是生命實實在在的改變。
