Part 1- Be A Witness In Your Jerusalem- Sharing With Those Closest To You

(Listen to the sermon, 聽講道)

1 Dear Theophilus:In my first book I told you about everything Jesus began to do and teach 2 until the day he ascended to heaven after giving his chosen apostles further instructions from the Holy Spirit. 3 During the forty days after his crucifixion, he appeared to the apostles from time to time and proved to them in many ways that he was actually alive. On these occasions he talked to them about the Kingdom of God. 4 In one of these meetings as he was eating a meal with them, he told them, “Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you what he promised. Remember, I have told you about this before. 5 John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” 6 When the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, “Lord, are you going to free Israel now and restore our kingdom?” 7 “The Father sets those dates,” he replied, “and they are not for you to know. 8 But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power and will tell people about me everywhere — in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” 9 It was not long after he said this that he was taken up into the sky while they were watching, and he disappeared into a cloud. 10 As they were straining their eyes to see him, two white-robed men suddenly stood there among them. 11 They said, “Men of Galilee, why are you standing here staring at the sky? Jesus has been taken away from you into heaven. And someday, just as you saw him go, he will return!” 12 The apostles were at the Mount of Olives when this happened, so they walked the half mile back to Jerusalem. 13 Then they went to the upstairs room of the house where they were staying. Acts 1:1-13


1提阿非羅先生:我已經寫了前書,敘述耶穌開始所行所教的一切,2一直到他藉著聖靈吩咐所揀選的使徒之後,被接上升的日子為止。3他受難以後,用許多憑據向使徒顯示自己是活著的。他向使徒顯現,並且講論 神的國的事,有四十天之久。4耶穌和他們一同吃飯的時候,吩咐他們不要離開耶路撒冷,說:“你們要等候父的應許,就是你們聽我講過的,5約翰是用水施洗,但再過幾天,你們要受聖靈的洗。”6他們聚集的時候,問耶穌說:“主啊,你要在這時候使以色列復國嗎?”7耶穌說:“父憑著自己的權柄所定的時間或日期,你們不必知道。8可是聖靈降臨在你們身上,你們就必領受能力,並且要在耶路撒冷、猶太全地、撒瑪利亞,直到地極,作我的見證人。”9說完了這話,他們還在看的時候,他被接上升,有一朵雲把他接去,就看不見他了。10當他往上升,他們定睛望天的時候,忽然有兩個人,身穿白衣,站在他們旁邊,11說:“加利利人哪,為甚麼站著望天呢?這位被接升天離開你們的耶穌,你們看見他怎樣往天上去,他也要怎樣回來。” 12後來,他們從橄欖山回到耶路撒冷。那山靠近耶路撒冷,有一安息日可走的路程。13他們進了城,上了一間樓房, 使 徒 行 傳 1:1-13

16 Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him — but some of them still doubted! 18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”  Matthew 28:16-20

16十一個門徒往加利利去,到了耶穌指定的山上。17他們看見耶穌就拜他,但仍然有些人懷疑。18耶穌上前來,對他們說:“天上地上一切權柄都賜給我了。19所以,你們要去使萬民作我的門徒,奉父子聖靈的名,給他們施洗,20我吩咐你們的一切,都要教導他們遵守。這樣,我就常常與你們同在,直到這世代的終結。”  馬 太 福 音28:16-20
