Our Eternal Heirship through Christ Is Endorsed by His Resurrection 我們透過基督而得永恆的繼承權是有著祂的復活的支持“(Acts 使徒行傳 13:32-37)

We tell you the good news: what God promised our ancestors he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus. As it is written in the second Psalm: “You are my son; today I have become your father.” God raised him from the dead so that he will never be subject to decay. As God has said, “I will give you the holy and sure blessings promised to David.” So it is also stated elsewhere: “You will not let your holy one see decay.” Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his ancestors and his body decayed. But the one whom God raised from the dead did not see decay.


Paul reiterated the received message of salvation (illustrated at first with his survey of Israel’s history bringing out God’s promised Saviour Jesus) as his proclaiming good news about the fulfilment of what God promised by Jesus’ resurrection (and also His death on the cross). He used Psalm 2:7 and Isaiah 55:3 to draw his audiences’ attention towards Jesus’ identification as God the Son with equal standing as well as God’s everlasting covenant with those accepted Jesus’ as their Saviour, full of His faithful love shown to David. He then quoted Psalm 16:10 highlighting the fulfilled prophecy of Jesus’ resurrection which means that Jesus truly is the unique Son of God, and it proves that He was utterly holy even in His work on the cross.

保羅重申那領受的救恩之道(首先以他的以色列歷史綜覧來闡明,帶出神應許的救主耶穌),成為他正要宣講的好信息,這好信息有關神以耶穌的復活(還有祂在十字架上的受死)來應驗祂所應許的。他用了詩篇 2:7和以賽亞書55:3,把聽眾們的注意力引向耶穌作為與神同等地位的聖子的身分確認,與及神與那些接受耶穌為他們的救主的人立永遠的約,滿有祂向大衛顯明了的那確實的慈愛。他之後引用詩篇 16:10,強調已應驗的耶穌復活的預言,這意味著耶穌真的是神獨一無二的神子,並且証明祂甚至在十字架上的工是完完全全聖潔的。

Prayer: Father God, as what Paul said, the god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is your image. Thank you for the endorsement of Jesus’ resurrection which affirms our eternal heirship through Him. Help us to share and witness not ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord and ourselves as servants of many for His sake. Amen.

禱告: 父神啊,就如保羅所說,這些不信的人被這世代的神弄瞎了他們的心眼,使他們看不見基督榮耀的福音的光;基督就是你的形象。感謝你耶穌復活的支持,申明我們透過祂而得永恆的繼承權。求你幫助我們分享和見証,並不是自己,而是耶穌基督是主,並且為了祂的緣故自己成了眾人的僕人。阿們。
