前言PREFACE:

            使徒行傳第八章,我們將看到一件很使人興奮的例子,就是聖靈如何引領那些分享他們信仰基督的人身上。在聖靈的指導之下,信者們能勝過社會的障礙。能介紹人信耶穌而改變了歷史。

In Acts 8, we will see an exciting example of how the Spirit guides those who share their faith in Christ. With the Spirit’s direction, believers can overcome social barriers. introduce people to Jesus Christ and change the course of history.

 

上週Last Week上週我們發現罪如何障礙我們與神的關係和經驗到神要提供給我們的總總好處。

We discovered how sin is a barrier to our relationship with God and to experiencing all He has to offer us.

這週This Week:這週我們將發現分享我們的信仰和指點福音的好消息給他人是很重要的事情。We will discover the importance of sharing our faith and pointing others to the good news of the gospel.

 

    1.  一位順服的僕人: 使徒行傳8:26-30     1. An Obedient Servant: Acts 8:26-30    

 

26 有主的一個使者對腓利說、起來、向南走、往那從耶路撒冷

迦薩的路上去。那路是曠野。27 腓利就起身去了.不料、28 有一個埃提阿伯〔即古實見以賽亞十八章一節〕人、是個有大權的太監、在埃提阿伯女王干大基的手下總管銀庫、他上耶路撒冷禮拜去了.

29現在回來、在車上坐著、念先知以賽亞的書。聖靈對腓利說、你去貼近那車走。30腓利就跑到太監那裡、聽見他念 先知以賽亞的書、便問他說、你所念的、你明白麼

 

解經: 使徒行傳8:26-30 解經Richard P. Thompson他是北西拿撒勒大學神學部門

系主任和教授,也是新約指導聖經

使徒行傳解經之作者人物。

  上帝之天使真有引導嗎?自從腓利

的宣教在撒馬利亞很成功 (請看使徒行傳8:1-14)向南走到孤立的區域簡直不合理。我們並不是説腓利有問題。但兩件事顯然見到了 : 神正在引導他該去

的地方但神並沒有告訴他為什麼

     腓利最清楚、簡單的是切實自認他對神的順從。從耶路撒冷南下迦薩的路上去,他遇到一位政府的官員,太監來自埃提阿伯: 這人是負責女王的銀庫。這官員是從耶路撒冷敬拜神後正要回家,但他似乎被拒絕參加會堂的敬拜。他的情況是太監,他沒望參加希伯來人或猶太人的改變信仰

     不顧這些障礙,腓利從高處看到埃提 阿伯的太監在讀的是以賽亞書

也可能是那本書被他吸引因為以賽亞言及埃提阿伯(古實) 受到上帝的祝福 (以賽亞書 18:1; 45:14)

再説,腓利已接受了神的領導。既使因為腓利自己沒經人邀請就進入馬車是很不恰當的,但是聖靈要他參入其中。腓利趕緊順從的跑上馬車,這與以利亞王上十八章46節相似。所以,腓利聽到這人正在讀的書 (因為

所有古代的人都是大聲讀而不是默讀)

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                   

26 Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, "Go south to the road--the desert road--that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza." 27 So he started out, and on his way he met an Ethiopian eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians. This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, 28 and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the book of Isaiah the prophet. 29 The Spirit told Philip, "Go to that chariot and stay near it." 30 Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. "Do you understand what you are reading?" Philip asked.

 

Commentary: Acts 8:26-30 from Richard P. Thompson, he is professor of New Testament and chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Northwest Nazarene University. He is also author of the Acts commentary for the New Beacon Bible Commentary.

  Could the Lord’s angel have the directions confused? Since Philip’s ministry was successful in Samaria (see Acts 8:1-14), it didn’t make sense to move south to an isolated part of the region. We are not told whether Philip had questions. But two things were apparent: God was leading him elsewhere ... and God did not tell him why.

     The simple declaration that Philip did what God asked of him affirms his obedience. Somewhere along the road heading south from Jerusalem to Gaza, he met an important government official, a eunuch from Ethiopia: the person responsible for the treasury of the queen. The official was returning home from Jerusalem where he went to worship, but he had likely been excluded from participating in worship at the temple. Due to his condition as a eunuch, he had no hope of being a practicing Jew or a Jewish convert.

     Despite these barriers, Philip overheard the Ethiopian eunuch reading from Isaiah. It is possible that he was attracted to that specific book since Isaiah refers to Ethiopia (Cush) receiving God’s blessings (Isaiah 18:1; 45:14).

     Once again, Philip received divine guidance. Since it would have been inappropriate for Philip to invite himself into the chariot, the Spirit instructed him to approach and join the traveling party. Philip obeyed by running up to the chariot (similar to Elijah; 1 Kings 18:46), so that he heard the man reading (for all ancient reading was done aloud, not silently).

 

 

1.     2. 機會分享: 使徒行傳8:31-35, 經文:

2.         他說、沒有人指教我、怎能明白呢。於是請腓利上車、與他同坐。

3.     他所念的那段經、說、『他像羊被牽到宰殺之地、又像羊羔在剪毛的人手下無聲、他也是這樣不開口。

4.     他卑微的時候、人不按公義審判他.〔原文作他的審判被奪去〕誰能述說他的世代、因為他的生命從地上奪去。』太監對腓利說、請問、先知說這話、是指著誰、是指著自己呢、是指著別人呢。腓利就開口從這經上起、對他傳講耶穌。

 

解經: Acts 8:31-35

靠近馬車聽到太監讀 書,腓利就問他明白他所讀的嗎? 一開始,聲音聽來是沒有禮貌的,向一位社會高級分子, 有能力、財富和文學能力的人發問,但是這位太監的回應沒一點點生氣,而且表示希望有人領導他,並且邀請腓利上來馬車上同坐,腓利就有機會與太監分享福音

 

 

 

 

3. 使改觀之門打開:

使徒Acts 8:36-40二人正往前走、到了有水的地方.太監說、看哪、這裡有水、我受洗有甚麼妨礙呢。〔有古卷在此有若是一心相信〕

腓利說你可以,他回答說我信耶穌基督是 神的兒子〕

於是吩咐車站住、腓利和太監二人同下水裡去、腓利就給他施洗。

從水裡上來、主的靈把腓利提了去、太監也不再見他了、就歡歡喜喜的走路。後來有人在亞鎖都遇見腓利、他走遍那地方、在各城宣傳福音、直到該撒利亞

 

 

解經: 使徒8:36-40,

猶如上帝安排太監與腓利在一起,有水的供應太監受洗和腓利的領導又是一個上帝安排的確據,還有太監的身體情況,太監的受浸供給他的改觀。當腓利隨從聖神的領導,這景與景的會和,腓利執行了下一步與太監的講道和太監的被呼召。對於腓利,是沒有猶豫做太監的浸洗禮,甚至若受阻礙把太監逐出上帝救他的門外。腓利指出救贖已括展到全人類了!太監受洗以後是何等快樂回家!他不只是喜樂的回到埃提阿伯,他在旅途中已加入了社區信仰之一員。

 

腓利和太監分享神的愛因為二人都順從上帝的引導和恩惠。那就是説,有時候我們要跟隨耶穌走,去伸展我們的手,或是對某人説出恩惠的話,或走出舒適的環境去傳福音。這段時間,我們可能經驗到使徒行傳所頌揚的見證。

 

 

 

 

 

想一想: 本週何處是神要領導您分享 福音的地方!

4. 結論:

1) 一位順從的僕人: 使徒8:26-30

當聖靈引導腓利站在太監的馬車邊,您想腓利感覺如何呢?(雖是

確然無疑的畏懼,腓利順從了)

 

 

2) 機會分享: 使徒8:30-36

為何耶穌基督的故事對太監是

好消息呢?(雖是太監被會堂開除,但耶穌完成了彌賽亞的預言及歡迎

和接受每個人,甚至像太監那樣已

被逐出的人。)

 

 3) 使改觀之門打開: 使徒8: 36-40

腓利埃提阿伯太監在沙漠地旅行。聖靈用以賽亞五十三章作腓利埃提阿伯太監的開始對話,上帝的話使人改觀之門打開。腓利深深了解這個章節是耶穌要助他完成分享的好消息。重要的是,有信主的人要讀經,當聖靈要引領您傳福音時,您好可預備分享信仰

   

   

 禱告:

      求神幫助我們對聖靈感覺靈敏。

     上帝能賜於祂的百姓智慧和勇氣

     去分享他們在基督堛熙葝痋C

2. An Opportunity to Share: Reading the Scriptures of Acts 8:31-35, "How can I," he said, "unless someone explains it to me?" So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. The eunuch was reading this passage of Scripture: "He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, and as a lamb before the shearer is silent, so he did not open his mouth. In his humiliation he was deprived of justice. Who can speak of his descendants? For his life was taken from the earth." The eunuch asked Philip, "Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?"

Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.

 

Commentary: Acts 8:31-35 Being near the chariot and hearing the eunuch reading prompted Philip to ask whether he understood what he read. Initially, this sounds like an offensive question, especially from someone who appeared out of nowhere, not to mention that he asked it of someone of high social standing, who was powerful, wealthy, and literate. Yet the eunuch’s response suggests no hint of offence. By expressing the hope that someone would “lead the way” and then inviting Philip into the chariot, Philip had opportunity to share the gospel.

 

3. An Opening for Transformation

Reading the Scripture of Acts 8:36-40, As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, "Look, here is water. Why shouldn't I be baptized?" And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea.

 

Commentary: Acts 8:36-40

Just as God brought these two together, the available water was another sign of God’s provision and guidance. Given the eunuch’s physical condition, the baptism of the eunuch provided the concluding sign of his transformation. Just as Philip followed divine leading that orchestrated their meeting, he took the next logical steps with the eunuch, who was ready to be immersed in all that the gospel meant and called for. For Philip, there was no hesitation to baptize him, even if there were barriers that kept the eunuch outside the people of God. By baptizing him, Philip indicated that salvation extends to all! The eunuch’s response was joyful all the way home! Not only was he returning to Ethiopia, he now continued on “the Way” as part of the community of faith.

 

Philip and the eunuch shared a divine moment because both were open and obedient to God’s guidance and grace. Sometimes, that means being willing to go where Jesus would go, to extend a hand, or offer a word of grace to someone or in a situation outside our comfort zone for spread the gospel. In such moments, we may experience the power of witness that Acts itself proclaims.

 

Reflect:

Consider where God might be leading you to share the gospel this week. by

Richard P. Thompson, he is professor of New Testament and chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Northwest Nazarene University. He is also author of the Acts commentary for the New Beacon Bible Commentary.

 

4. Conclusion:

  1) An Obedient Servant: Acts 8:26-30 How do you think Philip felt when the Spirit told him to stand by the eunuch of chariot?

(Even though it was undoubtedly intimidating, Philip obeyed.)    

 

  2) An Opportunity to Share: Acts 8:30-36 Why would Jesus’ story have been good news to the eunuch? (The eunuch worshiped God even though he was excluded from the temple. Jesus fulfilled the prophecy of a Messiah and welcomed and accepted everyone, even outcasts like eunuchs.)

 

 3) An Opening for Transformation: 36-40 Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch were traveling along a desert road. The Spirit used Isaiah 53 as the initial connection between Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch. God’s Word opened the door for the life-transforming encounter. Philip’s deep understanding of Jesus’ fulfillment of this passage helped him share the good news. It is essential for believers to study the Bible, so they are ready when the Spirit guides them to share their faith with others.

 

Close in prayer,

 Asking God to help us be sensitive to the Spirit. May God grant His people wisdom and courage to share their joy in Christ.
