The Acts Ch. 13-28

Luke–Acts is an attempt to answer a theological problem, namely how the Messiah of the Jews came to have an overwhelmingly non-Jewish church; the answer it provides, and its central theme, is that the message of Christ was sent to the Gentiles because the Jews rejected it.  Luke–Acts can be also seen as a defense of (or “apology” for) the Jesus movement addressed to the Jews: the bulk of the speeches and sermons in Acts are addressed to Jewish audiences, with the Romans serving as external arbiters on disputes concerning Jewish customs and law.  On the one hand, Luke portrays the Christians as a sect of the Jews, and therefore entitled to legal protection as a recognised religion; on the other, Luke seems unclear as to the future God intends for Jews and Christians, celebrating the Jewishness of Jesus and his immediate followers while also stressing how the Jews had rejected God’s promised Messiah.

哥林多後書 2 Corinthians

哥林多後書 2 Corinthians (粵語) 主要內容 從“賜各樣安慰的上帝”獲得幫助 (覆蓋哥林多後書1:1-2:11)在開頭的問候裏,保羅提及提摩太也有分致意。保羅説:“願頌讚歸與……發慈悲的父,賜各樣安慰的上帝。我們在一切患難中,他就安慰我們,”使我們可以進一步安慰別人。雖然保羅和同伴曾經遭受極大的壓力,有過生命的危險,上帝卻救了他們。哥林多人也可以幫助他們,為他們禱告。保羅對自己的真誠和上帝的非配得仁慈深具信心,因此憑著這種信心寫信給他們。上帝的應許藉著耶穌都成為“是”了;上帝也膏了那些屬基督的人,賜給他們心裏的“聖靈”作為“憑據”。 保羅在第一封信第五章所談及的男子看來已被逐出會眾。他已經真正悔改而表現憂傷。是故保羅吩咐哥林多人要衷誠寬恕懺悔者,向之表現愛心。 符合作新約服事者的資格 (覆蓋哥林多後書2:12-6:10)保羅把自己和哥林多的基督徒比作在基督的凱旋行列中。 (哥林多人很熟悉當日凱旋行列的馨香之氣,因為每逢軍隊勝利歸來時,人民便沿途焚香而發出這種香氣。)保羅肯定地指出:“我們不……為利混亂上帝的道。”
