雅各的领导
The Leadership of James

Acts 15:12-14

12 大家都静默无声,听巴拿巴和保罗述说上帝借着他们在外族人中所行的神迹奇事。 13 他们讲完了,雅各说:“弟兄们,请听我说! 14 刚才西门述说 神当初怎样关怀外族人,从他们中间拣选了众人,归在自己的名下。

12 The whole assembly became silent as they listened to Barnabas and Paul telling about the signs and wonders God had done among the Gentiles through them. 13 When they finished, James spoke up. “Brothers,” he said, “listen to me. 14 Simon has described to us how God first intervened to choose a people for his name from the Gentiles.

 

重点学习

从这段经文中我们看见,信徒们非常敬重雅各,因为当他认同彼得先前所说的话之际,信徒们都同意他的看法。

雅各的论述包含了二个主要的部分:第一,他借着先知阿摩司的见证确认了外邦人的呼召;第二,他表明了在信徒中间如何做才能够达到增进平和与合一的目的,在某些方面让外邦信徒能够有一些自由,而与此同时,如此做法又不会蒙蔽基督的恩典。

Lessons Learn

We see from this verse that they regarded James highly, for when he confirmed what Peter had said, they all agreed.

James’s speech consisted of two main parts. First, he confirmed the call of the Gentiles by the testimony of the prophet Amos; second, he showed what is the best thing to do to nourish peace and concord among the faithful while allowing the Gentiles continued freedom and not obscuring Christ’s grace.
