上帝的应许: 约瑟和耶稣都被出卖
The promise of God: Joseph and Jesus were sold

Acts 7:8-16

8上帝也赐他割礼为约。这样,亚伯拉罕生了以撒,第八天就给他行了割礼。后来,以撒生雅各,雅各生了十二位祖先。9祖先妒忌约瑟,把他卖到埃及去,然而上帝与他同在,10救他脱离一切苦难,使他在埃及王法老面前,有智慧、得恩宠。法老立他为首相,管理埃及和法老的全家。11后来埃及和迦南全地遭遇饥荒、大灾难,我们的祖先找不到粮食。12雅各听见埃及有谷粮,就派我们的祖先去,这是第一次。13第二次的时候,约瑟就向哥哥们表露自己的身世,法老才知道约瑟的家世。14约瑟就派人去把他父亲雅各和全家七十五人都接来。15于是雅各下了埃及。后来他和我们祖先都死了,16运到示剑,埋葬在亚伯拉罕用银子向哈抹子孙买来的坟地里。

Then he gave Abraham the covenant of circumcision. And Abraham became the father of Isaac and circumcised him eight days after his birth. Later Isaac became the father of Jacob, and Jacob became the father of the twelve patriarchs.“Because the patriarchs were jealous of Joseph, they sold him as a slave into Egypt. But God was with him 10 and rescued him from all his troubles. He gave Joseph wisdom and enabled him to gain the goodwill of Pharaoh king of Egypt. So Pharaoh made him ruler over Egypt and all his palace.11 “Then a famine struck all Egypt and Canaan, bringing great suffering, and our ancestors could not find food. 12 When Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent our forefathers on their first visit. 13 On their second visit, Joseph told his brothers who he was, and Pharaoh learned about Joseph’s family. 14 After this, Joseph sent for his father Jacob and his whole family, seventy-five in all.15 Then Jacob went down to Egypt, where he and our ancestors died. 16 Their bodies were brought back to Shechem and placed in the tomb that Abraham had bought from the sons of Hamor at Shechem for a certain sum of money.

 

 

重点学习

上帝一直与祂的子民同在,却经常将自己隐藏一段时间。

智慧不仅是指能预言和解梦的恩赐,而是能审慎地规劝他人。

我们无论有任何能力,都必须把他们当成上帝给我们的特殊恩赐。祂选择给我们成功,是为了让祂的恩赐能够实现祂给这些恩赐的原有目的。

God is often present with his people in such a way that he remains hidden for a time.

Wisdom means not only the gift of prophecy in interpreting dreams but prudence in giving counsel.

Whatever abilities we have must be counted as God’s special gifts. He chooses to give us success in order that his gifts may achieve the purpose for which he gave them.
