God Became Man 上帝成了人

John 1:1-18 約翰福音1:1-18

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.

1:1太初有道,道與上帝同在,道就是上帝。1:2這道太初與上帝同在。

3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.

1:3萬物是藉著他造的;凡被造的,沒有一樣不是藉著他造的。1:4生命在他裡頭,這生命就是人的光。1:5光照在黑暗裡,黑暗卻不接受光。

6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.

1:6有一個人,是從神那裡差來的,名叫約翰。1:7這人來,為要作見證,就是為光作見證,叫眾人因他可以信。1:8他不是那光,乃是要為光作見證。1:9那光是真光,照亮一切生在世上的人

10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

1:10他在世界,世界也是藉著他造的,世界不認識他。1:11他到自己的地方來,自己的人倒不接他。1:12凡接待他的,就是信他名的人,他就賜他們權柄作上帝的兒女。1:13這等人不是從血氣生的,不是從情慾生的,也不是從人意生的,乃是從上帝生的。

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

1:14道成了肉身,住在我們中間,充充滿滿地有恩典有真理。我們也見過他的榮光,正是父獨生子的榮光。

15 John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’” 16 From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.

1:15約翰為他作見證,喊著說:「這就是我曾說:『那在我以後來的,反成了在我以前的,因他本來在我以前。』」1:16從他豐滿的恩典裡,我們都領受了,而恩上加恩。1:17律法本是藉著摩西傳的;恩典和真理都是由耶穌基督來的。1:18從來沒有人看見上帝,只有在父懷裡的獨生子將他表明出來。

 

Colossians 1:16-17 歌羅西書 1:16-17

16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together

1:16因為萬有都是靠他造的,無論是天上的,地上的;能看見的,不能看見的;或是有位的,主治的,執政的,掌權的;一概都是藉著他造的,又是為他造的。1:17他在萬有之先;萬有也靠他而立。

 

How Do We Come to Know God?

人們是如何認識上帝的?

1.     God is invisible (John 1:18)上帝是看不見的 (約翰福音 1:18)

2.     God reveals Himself through His creation上帝透過他的創造揭示了自己

3.     God reveals His will through His Law 上帝透過祂的律法顯現祂的旨意

John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through       Jesus Christ. 約翰福音1:17律法本是藉著摩西傳的;恩典和真理都是由耶穌基督來的。

4.     “The Word Became Flesh and dwelt among us”  =  God became man and ‘pitched His tent’ among us”道成了肉身, 住在我們中間=上帝成了人住在我們當中

Hebrews 11:8-9 8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.

希伯來書11:8亞伯拉罕因著信,蒙召的時候就遵命出去,往將來要得為業的地方去;出去的時候,還不知往哪裡去。11:9他因著信,就在所應許之地作客,好像在異地居住帳棚,與那同蒙一個應許的以撒、雅各一樣。

Exodus 13:21 21 By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.

出埃及記13:21耶和華先之而往、晝在云柱以導之、夜在火柱以燭之、俾其行邁、晝夜俱可、

 

Matthew 1:23“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”  which means, “God with us.”

馬太福音1:23說:必有童女懷孕生子;人要稱他的名為以馬內利。(以馬內利翻出來就是「上帝與我們同在」。)

 

Matthew 8:20:20 Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”

馬太福音8:20耶穌說:「狐狸有洞,天空的飛鳥有窩,人子卻沒有枕頭的地方。」

 

In other words Jesus stated that He was a “homeless” person..

“耶穌說他自己是一個無家可歸的人”

 

I Corinthians 6:19-20 19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

哥林多前書6:19豈不知你們的身子就是聖靈的殿嗎?這聖靈是從上帝而來,住在你們裡頭的;並且你們不是自己的人,6:20因為你們是重價買來的。所以,要在你們的身子上榮耀上帝。
