使徒行传6 Acts

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28

6:1 那时,门徒增多,有说希腊话的犹太人,向希伯来人发怨言。因为在天天的供给上忽略了他们的寡妇。

And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.

6:2 十二使徒叫众门徒来,对他们说,我们撇下神的道,去管理饭食,原是不合宜的。

Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.

6:3 所以弟兄们,当从你们中间选出七个有好名声,被圣灵充满,智慧充足的人,我们就派他们管理这事。

Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.

6:4 但我们要专心以祈祷传道为事。

But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

6:5 大家都喜悦这话,就拣选了司提反,乃是大有信心,圣灵充满的人,又拣选腓利,伯罗哥罗,尼迦挪,提门,巴米拿,并进犹太教的安提阿人尼哥拉。

And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:

6:6 叫他们站在使徒面前。使徒祷告了,就按手在他们头上。

Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid their hands on them.

6:7 神的道兴旺起来。在耶路撒冷门徒数目加增的甚多。也有许多祭司信从了这道。

And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

6:8 司提反满得恩惠能力,在民间行了大奇事和神迹。

And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.

6:9 当时有称利百地拿会堂的几个人,并有古利奈,亚历山大,基利家,亚细亚,各处会堂的几个人,都起来,和司提反辩论。

Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen.

6:10 司提反是以智慧和圣灵说话,众人敌挡不住。

And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.

6:11 就买出人来说,我们听见他说谤讟摩西,和神的话。

Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God.

6:12 他们又耸动了百姓,长老,并文士,就忽然来捉拿他,把他带到公会去,

And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council,

6:13 设下假见证说,这个人说话,不住的糟践圣所和律法。

And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:

6:14 我们曾听见他说,这拿撒勒人耶稣,要毁坏此地,也要改变摩西所交给我们的规条。

For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.

6:15 在公会里坐着的人,都是定睛看他,见他的面貌,好像天使的面貌。

And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.

使徒行传6参考

完美教会,人皆渴望;可怎么我用尽了努力,还找不到?我是不是应转教会?
6:1 当我们看到初期教会的生活中充满神迹、慷慨分享、肢体相交时,也许会希望自己成为这“完美”教会的一分子。事实上,初期教会也有问题,就如我们今日一样。没有教会是完美的,直到基督再来与信徒联合为止。所有教会都有问题,如果你的教会的缺点使你苦恼,你要问自己:“一所完美的教会会让我作会友吗?”还是尽你所能去改善教会吧。

知人善任,门徒做了;为神工作,也要分工合作?不是做得越多越好?
6:2-4 当初期教会人数增长时,其中一大需要就是管理分配食物给有需要的人。使徒需要专心从事传道的工作,所以他们便拣选其他人来管理膳食。每个人在教会的生活中都要承担不同的责任(参林前12章)。如果你处在领导的地位,但发现所担的担子太重,难以承担,就要根据神所赐给你的能力以及事情的先后次序作出决定,找人来帮忙。即使你不是作领导的,你也有恩赐可以在教会多方面的工作上被神使用,把这些恩赐献上,用来事奉神。

只是用来管理膳食,不用太认真嘛;那些门徒的要求可真多及高,不是吗……
6:3 使徒并不是轻率地对待这项管理工作的。注意他们对处理膳食供应的人的要求:被圣灵充满而又有智慧。要承担重要责任,并且需要与人接触的岗位,应由具有这些资格的人来担任。我们必须让有智慧、灵命成熟的人来带领教会。

门徒为他们按手,真特别,有甚么意思吗?
6:6 属灵领导是很重要的,教会领袖切勿轻率从事。在初期教会里,被拣选的人由使徒任命(祈祷按手分别为圣)。“按手”是一种古老的犹太习俗,以便把人分别为圣做特别的事奉(参民27:23;申34:9)。

传福音,好像很少人愿意这样做;要传到全世界?可真……
6:7 耶稣曾经告诉使徒,他们首先要在耶路撒冷作见证(1:8);在短短的时间内,他们的信息已传遍整个城市及社会的各阶层,就连一些祭司也归信了。福音像池塘的涟漪,由中心点一圈一圈地传出去,愈传愈远,愈传愈广。今天,福音仍然是这样传出去的,你不是单独去改变世界,你只要是波浪中的一部分,就能掀动在你四周的人,他们又掀动其他人,直至所有人都感觉到这波动。

司提反那么有能力,不知道他靠甚么?
6:8-10 无论承担甚么工作,最重要的先决条件就是被圣灵充满。靠著圣灵的能力,司提反成为一个有智慧的仆人(6:3),施行神迹的人(6:8)和传福音的使者(6:10)。靠著圣灵的能力,你可以发挥神赐给你的恩赐。
