劝勉与坚固
Encourage and Strengthen

Acts 15:30-35

30 他们受了差派,下安提阿去,集合了众人,就把书信交上。 31 众人读了,因信上的劝勉,就感到欣慰。32 犹大和西拉也是先知,说了许多话劝勉弟兄,坚固他们。 33 住了一段时间,弟兄们就给他们送行,祝一路平安;他们就回到差派他们的人那里去。(有些抄本在此有第 34节:“但西拉认为自己应当在那里住下来,只有犹大回到耶路撒冷。”) 35 保罗和巴拿巴却住在安提阿,跟许多别的人一同教导,传讲主的道。

30 So the men were sent off and went down to Antioch, where they gathered the church together and delivered the letter. 31 The people read it and were glad for its encouraging message. 32 Judas and Silas, who themselves were prophets, said much to encourage and strengthen the believers. 33 After spending some time there, they were sent off by the believers with the blessing of peace to return to those who had sent them. 34  35 But Paul and Barnabas remained in Antioch, where they and many others taught and preached the word of the Lord.

 

重点学习

自此他们分道扬镳,然而现在他们看见了第一间教会所做的审断乃是与保罗和巴拿巴的教训一致的,他们深知属上帝的儿女们最重要的切望是:与众人和睦,而这乃是要完全建基在真信心之上。

在哥林多前书十四章3和5节里,保罗将讲道(说预言)这恩赐视为是在一切恩赐之上的;他并不是在说对未来事情有所预测这种事,他对之有所嘉许乃是因为讲道能够使得教会得以建立在教导、劝诫和鼓励之上。从这角度看来,在此,路加似乎是要说明先知们最大的责任是要劝勉并坚固弟兄。

 

Lessons Learn

Thus they were divided. But now that they saw that the judgment of the first church agreed with the teaching of Paul and Barnabas, they obtained what God;s children ought to desire most of all—peace with one another, being unanimously established in the true faith.

In 1 Corinthians 14:3,5 Paul ranks prophecy above all other gifts, but he is not talking about foretelling the future; he praises it because it results in the church being built up by teaching, exhortation, and encouragement. In this way Luke seems to be saying that the main task of the prophets was to encourage and strengthen the brothers.
