使徒行传2:14~36

彼得在五旬节的讲道

14 彼得和十一使徒站起来,他高声对众人说:“犹太人和所有住在耶路撒冷的人哪,你们应当明白这件事,也应该留心听我的话。

Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say.

15 这些人并不是照你们所想的喝醉了,现在不过是上午九点钟罢了。

These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning!

16 这正是约珥先知所说的:

No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

17 ‘上帝说:在末后的日子,我要把我的灵浇灌所有的人,你们的儿女要说预言,你们的青年人要见异象,你们的老年人要作异梦。

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.

18 在那些日子,我也要把我的灵浇灌我的仆人和使女,他们就要说预言。

Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

19 我要在天上显出奇事,在地上显出神迹,有血、有火、有烟雾;

I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke.

20 太阳将变为黑暗,月亮将变为血红,在主伟大显赫的日子临到以前,这一切都要发生。

The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.

21 那时,凡求告主名的,都必得救。’

And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

22 “以色列人哪,请听听这几句话:正如你们所知道的,上帝已经借着拿撒勒人耶稣在你们中间施行了大能、奇事、神迹,向你们证明他是上帝所立的。

“Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.

23 他照着上帝的定旨和预知被交了出去,你们就借不法之徒的手,把他钉死了。

This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross.

24 上帝却把死的痛苦解除,使他复活了,因为他不能被死亡拘禁。

But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.

25 大卫指着他说:‘我时常看见主在我面前,因他在我右边,我必不会动摇。

David said about him: “‘I saw the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

26 为此我的心快乐,我的口舌欢呼,我的肉身也要安居在盼望中。

Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest in hope,

27 因你必不把我的灵魂撇在阴间,也必不容你的圣者见朽坏。

because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, you will not let your holy one see decay.

28 你已经把生命之路指示了我,必使我在你面前有满足的喜乐。’

You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.’

29 “弟兄们,关于祖先大卫的事,我不妨坦白告诉你们,他死了,葬了,直到今日他的坟墓还在我们这里。

“Fellow Israelites, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day.

30 他是先知,既然知道上帝向他起过誓,要从他的后裔中立一位,坐在他的宝座上,

But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne.

31 又预先看见了这事,就讲论基督的复活说:‘他不会被撇在阴间,他的肉身也不见朽坏。’

Seeing what was to come, he spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay.

32 这位耶稣,上帝已经使他复活了,我们都是这事的见证人。

God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it.

33 他既然被高举到上帝的右边,从父领受了所应许的圣灵,就把他浇灌下来,这就是你们所看见所听见的。

Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.

34 大卫并没有升到天上,他却说:‘主对我主说:你坐在我的右边,

For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said, “‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand

35 等我使你的仇敌作你的脚凳。’

until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”’

36 因此,以色列全家应当确实知道,你们钉在十字架上的这位耶稣,上帝已经立他为主为基督了。”

“Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”

对于圣灵降临给门徒带来的生命改变——满有信心见证上帝的大作为,旁观的人有两种反应:一种是惊讶猜疑地彼此说:“这是什么意思?”另一种是讥诮地说:“他们是给新酒灌醉了。”(11~13)

这个时候,十二个使徒站起来回应这些被吸引来围观的犹太人,其中有住在耶路撒冷的人,也有远在罗马帝国边陲的人,彼得说:“我们不是喝醉了,而是被上帝的灵浇灌了,就如约珥先知所说的……”(15~21)然后他在众人面前,见证犹太人等待了数百年的受膏者(即上帝所拣选的那一位),希伯来文称为“弥赛亚”,希腊文则称为“基督”,也就是先祖大卫一再提及的那位主(29~35),耶稣就是带来拯救的主,就是基督!

耶稣就是基督,这有什么意义呢?这与之前门徒的不寻常行为有什么关系呢?

犹太人都知道,以前上帝会在特定的时刻降下圣灵在特定的人身上,为要执行特定的任务,摩西如此,比撒列如此(参出31:1~5),基甸如此,参孙如此,大卫也如此,他们都知道上帝曾应许过,时候到了,圣灵会降在所有人身上,不分男女,不分老幼,不分身份(参珥2:28~31),他们也知道当基督来到时,这些事就会发生。但他们不知道的是,这些事情竟然出现在他们面前!所以当彼得站起来见证耶稣是基督,是成就旧约应许的那一位时,门徒的见证除去了他们的惊讶,止息了他们的讥诮,圣灵也在他们心里动工。


今天,每个在基督里的人只要顺服圣灵的带领,都可以同样经历圣灵的大能,经历圣灵的更新与复兴。因为圣灵在这一日降临在众人身上以后,便一直与所有顺服上帝的人同在,当时的门徒这样经历了,两千年来无数的人也都这样经历了(请记住,说别国的语言,行神迹奇事,并非圣灵充满的唯一标记,只要我们信而顺服,圣灵便按各人的情况来充满我们。)祝福你今天同样经历圣灵的充满、更新与复兴。
