约翰福音,第1章

Lesson 2 The Gospel of John, Chapter 1


Jesus: The Word and the Lamb 耶稣:道与羔羊

The gospel of John does not begin its record of Jesus by recording his birth, but by proclaiming the eternal existence of Christ. The gospel begins in the same was that the first book of the Bible begins, “in the beginning.” In other words, the gospel is saying that before Jesus was born in Bethlehem, before Moses, before Abraham, before Adam and Eve, there was Christ, eternal, almighty, one with the Father.

约翰福音并没有以耶稣出生的记录为开始,而是通过宣告基督的永恒存在为开篇。这本福音书的开头和圣经第一卷的开头是一样的:“起初、太初”。换句话说,福音在说,早在耶稣出生于伯利恒以前,在摩西、亚伯拉罕、亚当和夏娃以前,就有了基督,他是那永恒、全能、与父同在的那一位。

Read John 1:35-51 (Jesus calls his first disciples)

读约翰福音1:35-51 (耶稣呼召他的首批门徒)

In verse 35 we read of “two of John’s disciples.” One of them was obviously Andrew, who was mentioned in v. 40. The other disciple is not mentioned by name. Since the writer of this gospel often chose not to use his own name (we have another example of this in John 20:3, where two disciples ran to the empty tomb), it is assumed that the other disciple was John himself, the author of this Gospel.

在第35节,我们读到约翰的两个门徒。其中之一显然是安德烈,在第40节中提到过他。另一个门徒的名字没有提到。因为该福音书的作者经常选择不使用他自己的名字(在约翰福音20:3中有两个门徒跑到空坟墓前,就是另一个例子),所以我们假定另一个门徒就是约翰自己,是这卷福音书的作者。

是什么把前两个门徒带到了耶稣面前(36节)?

2.What first brought you to Jesus?

In our next lesson Jesus begins his ministry, performs his first miracle, and proclaims that he is the true Messiah, sent by the Father for the salvation of the world. Please prepare chapters 2 and 3.

在我们的下一课中,耶稣将开始他的事工,行他的第一个神迹,宣告他是真正的弥赛亚,是父所差来拯救世界的。请准备第2章和第3章。
