我说的都是真实和清醒的话
What I am saying is true and reasonable

Acts 26:24-27

24 保罗申诉到这里,非斯都大声说:“保罗!你疯了;你的学问太大,使你疯了!”25 保罗说:“非斯都大人,我没有疯,我说的都是真实的话,清醒的话。26 因为王知道这些事,所以我对王坦白直说。我确信这些事没有一件能瞒得过他,因为这不是在背地里作的。27 亚基帕王啊,你信先知吗?我知道你是信的。 

24 At this point Festus interrupted Paul’s defense. “You are out of your mind, Paul!” he shouted. “Your great learning is driving you insane.” 25 “I am not insane, most excellent Festus,” Paul replied. “What I am saying is true and reasonable. 26 The king is familiar with these things, and I can speak freely to him. I am convinced that none of this has escaped his notice, because it was not done in a corner. 27 King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know you do.”

 

重点学习

在这里,保罗让我们看到他关注的是他的教导,而不是他自己。他没有夸耀自己的知识或劳苦来显明他的智慧,而只满足于说明自己除了那“真实的话,清醒的话”,不传别的。真实的话与一切虚假的和错误言语的对立;清醒的话与一切任意的猜测与难题对立。后者只会带来纷争。

 

Lessons Learn

Here Paul shows us how he cared only for his teaching, and not for himself. He did not boast of his own intelligence or labor to defend his wisdom but was merely content to say that he taught nothing but what was “true and reasonable.” What is true is opposed to all kinds of fraud and fallacy; and what is reasonable is opposed to all kinds of frivolous speculations and difficulties, which only give rise to contention.
