谁是那有能力的?
Who is the power?

Acts 3:11-12

11那人拉着彼得和约翰的时候,群众都很惊奇,跑到他们那里,就是所罗门廊的下面。12彼得看见了,就对群众说:以色列人哪,为什么因这事希奇呢?为什么瞪着我们,好像我们是凭着自己的能力和虔诚,使这人行走呢?

11 While the man held on to Peter and John, all the people were astonished and came running to them in the place called Solomon’s Colonnade. 12 When Peter saw this, he said to them: “Fellow Israelites, why does this surprise you? Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? 

 

 

重点学习

在第一座圣殿被摧毁后,所罗巴伯和以斯拉完全按着旧圣殿的设计重建了新的圣殿。后来,希律根据这重建的圣殿,加上了极大的装饰,但没有从人民的心中完全抹去所罗门圣殿的影子。

彼得抨击的是将人类所没有的权力和权威归功于人。所有人都认为祷告只能来自上帝,然而人们却很急促地将属于上帝的事物归功于人。这群人被告知不应该把注意力集中在使徒身上,那么理所当然的,圣灵也更加告诉我们不应该向区区的圣人呼求什么。

 

 

Lessons Learn

After the first temple had been destroyed, Zerubbabel and Ezra’s rebuilt temple followed the design of the old one exactly. Later Herod based his temple on the rebuilt temple, with great embellishments, but not to erase Solomon’s temple totally from peoples’ minds.

Peter attacked men’s being given credit for power and authority they did not possess. Everyone agrees that prayer can only come from God, and yet people quickly attribute to men what belongs to God. Since the people were told not to concentrate their attention on the apostles, how much more the Spirit tells us not to call on mere saints.
