那位被他们推开的人
The men whom they pushed away

Acts 7:37-41

37以前那位对以色列人说上帝要从你们弟兄中间,给你们兴起一位先知像我的,就是这摩西。38那曾经在旷野的大会中,和那在西奈山上对他说话的使者同在,也与我们的祖先同在的,就是他。他领受了活的圣言,传给我们。39我们的祖先不肯听从他,反而把他推开,他们的心已经转向了埃及,40就对亚伦说:给我们做一些神像,可以走在我们前头。因为把我们从埃及地领出来的那个摩西,我们不知道他遭遇了什么事。41在那些日子里,他们做了一个牛犊,把祭物献给那偶像,并且因自己手所做的而欢乐。

37 “This is the Moses who told the Israelites, ‘God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your own people.’ 38 He was in the assembly in the wilderness, with the angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our ancestors; and he received living words to pass on to us.39 “But our ancestors refused to obey him. Instead, they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt. 40 They told Aaron, ‘Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who led us out of Egypt—we don’t know what has happened to him!’ 41 That was the time they made an idol in the form of a calf. They brought sacrifices to it and reveled in what their own hands had made. 

 

 

重点学习

律法被称为“属死的职事”,它带来死亡是因为人性腐败。律法不产生罪恶,而是在我们里面发现罪恶。它带来生命,但完全腐败的我们只能从它那里得到死亡。因此,律法只有对人类而言会带来死亡。

那赐我们永生的圣言,必定不会消逝。所以我们今日必须这么想,先知和使徒们当年教导那时代的人的话语,其实也是写给我们的。他们的教训仍然有效,因为那话语的作者是上帝而不是人。与此同时,这里告诉我们,如果有人拒绝那指定给他们的话语,他们是在拒绝上帝的旨意。

 

 

Lessons Learn

The law is called “the ministry that brought death,” and that happens because of corrupt human nature; the law does not engender sin but finds it in us. It offered life, but we who are altogether corrupt can get nothing but death from it. Therefore, it is only deadly with regard to men.

What is less appropriate than that the thing that gives us immortality should itself die? So today we must think that just as the prophets and apostles spoke to the people of their time, they also write to us, and their teaching remains in force because its author is God rather than men. At the same time, he taught that if anyone rejects the word appointed for them, they are rejecting God’s purpose.
