恒久住在上帝恩典中
Continue in the grace of God

Acts 13:42-43

42 保罗和巴拿巴出来的时候,众人请求他们下一个安息日再对他们讲这些话。 43 散会以后,许多犹太人和归信犹太教的虔诚人,跟从了保罗和巴拿巴。两人对他们谈话,勉励他们要恒久住在上帝的恩典中。

42 As Paul and Barnabas were leaving the synagogue, the people invited them to speak further about these things on the next Sabbath.  43 When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God.

重点学习

激怒犹太人的一件事乃是任何由上帝所赐的特权竟都可以与未受割礼的外邦人分享,因此,他们为此付诸行动。当时,犹太信仰特别吸引妇女,在当时的古代社会里,性道德方面的放纵是最严重不过的了,因此,家庭生活急速瓦解,而在这种光景下,妇女乃是最大的受害者。由于犹太信仰教导在道德和生活上的纯净与清洁,在会堂四周遂聚集了许多的妇女,特别是那些有较高社会地位的妇女,她们发现这些教导乃是她们引颈所盼的;因此,她们中间许多人就眅依犹太信仰,成为敬畏上帝的人。

Lessons Learn

The one thing that infuriated the Jews was that any of God’s privileges could be for the uncircumcised Gentiles. So they took action. At this time, the Jewish religion had a special attraction for woman. In nothing was the ancient world more lax than in sexual morality. Family life was rapidly breaking down, and the worst sufferers were woman. The Jewish religion preached a purity of ethic and cleanness of life. Round the synagogues gathered many women, often of high social position, who found in this teaching just what they longed for. Many of these women became converts to Judaism; still more were God-fearers.
