Luke第2章:1-7 : 耶稣的诞生(路加福音)

研究内在含义

        

1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

Explanation of Luke 2      

原作者: Rev. John Clowes M.A.

Verses 1-6. That at this time the love of dominion, grounded in worldly ends, prevailed universally, endeavouring to extend it's empire over the things of the Church.

Verses 6-7. On which occasion the Lord was born, and was initiated into the truths of innocence and the doctrine of truth from the Word, which was extinguished by falsities.

Verses 8-9. They also, who teach and lead to the good of charity by the truth of faith, are hence enlightened, and filled with holy adoration.

Verses 10-12. Because Jehovah assumed the human nature for the purpose of saving mankind, which purpose He testified and confirmed by initiating His Humanity into the truths of innocence and the doctrine of truth from the Word.

Verses 13-14. On which account all in the heavens exalt the Divine Truth, as the alone source of all true worship, faith and charity amongst men.

Verses 15-19. They too, who teach and lead to the good of charity by the truth of faith, are confirmed in their belief in the Incarnate god by rational conviction in their understandings, and make it, known to others, who gladly receive it.

Verses 19-20. This belief also is cherished with internal affection in the Church, and hence all truth and good in the human understanding and will are ascribed to the Divine Truth.

Verses 21-25. That the Lord successively put off the hereditary principle received from the mother, and put on the Divine principle, until all truth in Him was made Divine Good.

Verses 25-26. And that He is made manifest to all who are in the principle of obedience.

Verses 27-34. And who accordingly receive Him with affection, and acknowledge Him as the predicted Saviour, who was to establish a new Church amongst the Gentiles.

Verses 34-35. And by whose Divine power evils were to be separated and goods exalted, and this through reproach and contumely, that so by the light of Divine Truth the state of the Church as to understanding and will might be made manifest.

Verses 36-39. Since every affection of good and of truth testifies, that He alone is the redeemer of mankind.

Verses 39-40. Who, as to His Humanity, was to be initiated into the goods and truths of the Word, and was thus gradually to advance, according to the laws of Divine order, to a full and complete union with Divinity.

Verses 41-51. Therefore when such initiation was accomplished, He was introduced, as to His Humanity, into all things of heaven and the Church.

Verses 51-52. And was content to bear with hereditary infirmity, during His growth in Divine Truth and Good.

耶稣的诞生

     

原作者: Rev. Peter M. Buss Sr. (机器翻译成: 中文)

This painting by Richard Cook  of the newborn baby Jesus, with Mary and Joseph, evokes the spiritual power of this long-awaited advent.

介绍:

在耶稣诞生在伯利恒的圣经故事中,他在地上的出生代表他在我们心中的出生。他在我们体内的诞生是在我们心中创造无私的爱。我们不能创建它;只有他能做到。

在他来我们之前,我们必须尽我们的本分-服从他的律法,回避十诫中所禁止的罪恶,尽我们最大的能力行善。他出生的故事跟随着我们生活中的这些行为。

路加福音2:1:“后来,凯撒·奥古斯都颁布了一项法令,要求全世界进行登记。这项普查最早是在奎里尼乌斯统治叙利亚时进行的。因此,所有人都被登记了,每个人都到了自己的城市。 ”

罗马是当时的世俗政府。它带来了秩序-受其异想天开。它代表了我们自己的推理能力的外部政府-一种有序的逻辑过程,可以聚集各种模式的思想,并以无情的力量解决问题。

皇帝进行了人口普查。他想知道他有多少人,以便可以更好地向他们征税。这说明了我们努力变得美好的生活。我们也聚集了自己的思想力量,使我们的思想更加合理,以便我们能够过上自己的生活。我们从一个相当世俗的角度来看这件事。我们认为自己是好人,而且我们有能力命令自己的生活。

考虑一下人口普查。想一想所有那些纵横交错的家庭,每个家庭都是从那里来的。请记住,当部落在几百年前进入迦南时,每个部落都获得了遗产,实际上,这些家庭的家谱保存在其原始城市中,记录着每个出生者和所有后代。罗马会在犹太和加利利进行这种人口普查是有道理的。

家庭的摇晃代表着我们在努力顺从上帝的美好生活中的精神秩序。

但是对于凯撒或希律王而言,未知的旅程正在发生,它将改变历史的进程。普查是根据上帝的旨意进行的,居住在拿撒勒而不是伯利恒的约瑟夫要踏上旅途。因为在我们试图整理思想,重新安排优先次序的同时,我们的一部分思想却被提升到一个新的领域。

路加福音2:4:“约瑟也从加利利,从拿撒勒城出来,进入犹太,到大卫城,被称为伯利恒,因为他是大卫的家和宗族。”

约瑟夫是个木匠-用铁工具在木头上工作,将木头制成有用的东西。他代表了人类的理解-也许尤其是对宗教和真正道德问题感兴趣的那部分理解。约瑟夫将木头雕刻成令人愉悦的形式,代表着我们如何利用我们的理解来塑造我们的善良,相信这将带给我们真正的幸福。

但是真正的幸福来自更多的奇迹。它来自主化身,从内部流入我们的心。

然而,当我们利用自己的理解去寻求生命和善意的意义时,我们就被提上了更高的思想。约瑟夫和玛丽从拿撒勒到犹大,尤其是伯利恒的旅程,代表着一种精神旅程-增进我们的理解,以了解生活的更深层真相。伯利恒的意思是“面包房”,代表了主圣言的最深层含义,是对真理的一种精神理解。因此,当约瑟夫上伯利恒时,我们的理解就被秘密地提出来了解更深的真理。我们认为这是因为我们正在努力理解生活。约瑟夫以为他听从了凯撒的命令,而正是上帝的天意将他带到了伯利恒。因此,是主偷偷地提振了我们的思想。

以色列伟大的国王大卫也代表了精神思想。约瑟是大卫的家。我们的理解似乎是非常实际和现实的,但是它拥有从身体之上和世界范围之外看到的力量。它是“大卫的房屋和宗族的”。

路加福音2:5:“要与已婚的已婚妻子玛丽(带孩子)注册。”

就像约瑟被应许给玛丽一样,我们的人类理解也被应许了对我们内心某种珍贵的爱。处女玛丽代表对真理的纯真情感。我们每个人内心深处都有一种理想主义。理解来自许多方面的冲动,但是当我们试图服从主时,它就向灵性的玛丽许诺-对更纯真的表面上的天真真理的爱。我们爱上理想和无私,值得的梦想。

我们所有人都有这种理想主义,因为主从我们出生的那一刻起就将它秘密地植入了我们的生命中,每一种可爱的感觉,每一种真正的思想都被我们爱的上帝储存在我们体内,成为我们的属灵玛丽。

约瑟夫自然地认为,他与玛丽的婚姻会产生一个孩子,给他们带来幸福。我们认为,如果我们将理解与理想结合起来,就会建立幸福。从某种意义上说是正确的。然而实际上,全能的上帝的力量流入我们的唯心主义才产生真正的爱。由于约瑟不是耶稣的父亲,而是他的天然监护人,因此我们的理解对我们未来的幸福起着一定的作用,但真正的爱是我们内心的神圣诞生。这是圣诞节的真实信息-来到世间的祂,只有祂才能以爱温暖人们的心灵。

路加福音2:6:“就是这样,当他们在那里的时候,她应该被释放的日子已经完成了。”

上帝在世上诞生了几个世纪。在那段时间里,他为人们的诞生作好了准备,由于这些应许,他们对此很期待。

我们很早就失去了清白,也许觉得我们是非常自私的人。主需要时间在我们心中创造爱。我们希望成为仁慈的人,瞬间就能完全爱上别人。那个出生需要时间和耐心。但是它的时间到了!

路加福音2:7:“她生了第一个儿子,用裹and的布包裹他,把他放在马槽里,因为在旅馆里没有他的空间。”

他可能出生在地球上任何地方-最辉煌的宫殿中,是世俗力量和威力的继承人。他选择了一个不起眼的马stable。部分原因是因为他没有成为尘世的力量。正如他说的那样:“谁更大?坐在桌子旁的人还是服务的人?不是坐在桌子旁的人吗?但是我作为你们中的一员在你们中间。” (路加福音22:27)。

但是原因远不止于此。即使在伯利恒,他也无法在旅馆里出生。客栈代表着一个授课的地方,是人们聚集和交流思想的地方。但是旅馆满座,即使在我们心中,我们经常认为我们知道这一切。

因此,他出生在马stable为食的马stable里。一匹马,将我们带到我们想去的地方,代表着对特定真理的理解,这些真理向我们展示了生活方式。它代表对属灵真理的理解。然后,他被包裹着的布包裹着,这些布代表着简单,纯真的真理,并被放置在马匹进食的地方。无辜的真理是我们极力嘲笑的真理-简单的想法,例如“做人好是好事”,“伤害别人是错的”或“我可以利用自己的能力为我所爱的人带来幸福”。这些是所有圣经中最基本的教导之一。

换句话说,当主降入我们的思想和心灵时,主发现在我们生活的许多部分中,我们的属灵“客栈”已满。我们认为我们非常了解如何过自己的生活方式。因此,他选择以自己的爱将我们带入我们心中的一个特殊部分-我们在其中寻求属灵的真理,而我们是出于纯真而这样做。

我们每个人都有一个精神上的管理者。每个人都有一个天真烂漫的地方,想要学习的地方,以及在学习思想方面谦卑的地方,这会使生活变得比现在好得多。

结论:我们的救主希望来到我们所有人身边。他为天堂创造了我们,为了让我们知道天堂的快乐,他教导我们他的律法。当我们回应时,他的爱就诞生在我们的心中,并且这种诞生遵循以下有序的模式:

1.我们头脑中所有的想法都变得整齐了-显然是我们自己的努力。 (人口普查)。

2.进行精神之旅。我们的理解从对世俗价值观的思考逐渐兴起。我们将理想主义(我们的属灵的玛丽)与我们一同带入了属灵的伯利恒。

3.上帝不是因我们以纯粹的世俗价值观(客栈)所充满和扭曲的真理而生。

4.取而代之的是,他从他的话语中诞生了那些天真无邪的真理,这些真理我们一直信任和喜爱,并且易于理解(我们的经理)。

5.它们被包裹在简单,清晰的观察物(包裹的布)中,当我们在我们心中成长时,可以保护我们新发现的爱。
