Third Sunday after Easter

1st. Reading: Acts  8:3-13

3 As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison. 

4 Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word. 

5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them. 

6And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 

7 For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed. 

8 And there was great joy in that city. 

9 But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great, 

10 to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the great power of God.” 

11 And they heeded him because he had astonished them with his sorceries for a long time. 

12 But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized. 

13 Then Simon himself also believed; and when he was baptized he continued with Philip, and was amazed, seeing the miracles and signs which were done.

2nd.Reading : Hebrews 10: 1-14

1 For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. 

2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. 

3 But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. 

4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins. 

5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a body You have prepared for Me. 

6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure. 

7 Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come– In the volume of the book it is written of Me– To do Your will, O God.’ ” 

8 Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law), 

9 then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. 

10 By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 

11 And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 

12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, 

13 from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. 

14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

Gospel: John 4: 31-38

31 In the meantime His disciples urged Him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 

32 But He said to them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.” 

33Therefore the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?” 

34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. 

35 Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! 

36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 

37 For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 

38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.”

الأحد الثالث بعد عيد القيامة

القرائة الأولى : أعمال ٨ : ٣ – ١٣

 3 وَأَمَّا شَاوُلُ فَكَانَ يَسْطُو عَلَى الْكَنِيسَةِ، وَهُوَ يَدْخُلُ الْبُيُوتَ وَيَجُرُّ رِجَالاً وَنِسَاءً وَيُسَلِّمُهُمْ إِلَى السِّجْنِ.

4 فَالَّذِينَ تَشَتَّتُوا جَالُوا مُبَشِّرِينَ بِالْكَلِمَةِ.

5 فَانْحَدَرَ فِيلُبُّسُ إِلَى مَدِينَةٍ مِنَ السَّامِرَةِ وَكَانَ يَكْرِزُ لَهُمْ بِالْمَسِيحِ.

6 وَكَانَ الْجُمُوعُ يُصْغُونَ بِنَفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ إِلَى مَا يَقُولُهُ فِيلُبُّسُ عِنْدَ اسْتِمَاعِهِمْ وَنَظَرِهِمُ الآيَاتِ الَّتِي صَنَعَهَا،

7 لأَنَّ كَثِيرِينَ مِنَ الَّذِينَ بِهِمْ أَرْوَاحٌ نَجِسَةٌ كَانَتْ تَخْرُجُ صَارِخَةً بِصَوْتٍ عَظِيمٍ. وَكَثِيرُونَ مِنَ الْمَفْلُوجِينَ وَالْعُرْجِ شُفُوا.

8 فَكَانَ فَرَحٌ عَظِيمٌ فِي تِلْكَ الْمَدِينَةِ.

9 وَكَانَ قَبْلاً فِي الْمَدِينَةِ رَجُلٌ اسْمُهُ سِيمُونُ، يَسْتَعْمِلُ السِّحْرَ وَيُدْهِشُ شَعْبَ السَّامِرَةِ، قِائِلاً إِنَّهُ شَيْءٌ عَظِيمٌ!.

10 وَكَانَ الْجَمِيعُ يَتْبَعُونَهُ مِنَ الصَّغِيرِ إِلَى الْكَبِيرِ قَائِلِينَ: «هذَا هُوَ قُوَّةُ اللهِ الْعَظِيمَةُ».

11 وَكَانُوا يَتْبَعُونَهُ لِكَوْنِهِمْ قَدِ انْدَهَشُوا زَمَانًا طَوِيلاً بِسِحْرِهِ.

12 وَلكِنْ لَمَّا صَدَّقُوا فِيلُبُّسَ وَهُوَ يُبَشِّرُ بِالأُمُورِ الْمُخْتَصَّةِ بِمَلَكُوتِ اللهِ وَبِاسْمِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ، اعْتَمَدُوا رِجَالاً وَنِسَاءً.

13 وَسِيمُونُ أَيْضًا نَفْسُهُ آمَنَ. وَلَمَّا اعْتَمَدَ كَانَ يُلاَزِمُ فِيلُبُّسَ، وَإِذْ رَأَى آيَاتٍ وَقُوَّاتٍ عَظِيمَةً تُجْرَى انْدَهَشَ.

القرائة الثانية  : عبرانيين ١٠ : ١ – ١٤

1 لأَنَّ النَّامُوسَ، إِذْ لَهُ ظِلُّ الْخَيْرَاتِ الْعَتِيدَةِ لاَ نَفْسُ صُورَةِ الأَشْيَاءِ، لاَ يَقْدِرُ أَبَدًا بِنَفْسِ الذَّبَائِحِ كُلَّ سَنَةٍ، الَّتِي يُقَدِّمُونَهَا عَلَى الدَّوَامِ، أَنْ يُكَمِّلَ الَّذِينَ يَتَقَدَّمُونَ.

2 وَإِلاَّ، أَفَمَا زَالَتْ تُقَدَّمُ؟ مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّ الْخَادِمِينَ، وَهُمْ مُطَهَّرُونَ مَرَّةً، لاَ يَكُونُ لَهُمْ أَيْضًا ضَمِيرُ خَطَايَا.

3 لكِنْ فِيهَا كُلَّ سَنَةٍ ذِكْرُ خَطَايَا.

4 لأَنَّهُ لاَ يُمْكِنُ أَنَّ دَمَ ثِيرَانٍ وَتُيُوسٍ يَرْفَعُ خَطَايَا.

5 لِذلِكَ عِنْدَ دُخُولِهِ إِلَى الْعَالَمِ يَقُولُ: «ذَبِيحَةً وَقُرْبَانًا لَمْ تُرِدْ، وَلكِنْ هَيَّأْتَ لِي جَسَدًا.

6 بِمُحْرَقَاتٍ وَذَبَائِحَ لِلْخَطِيَّةِ لَمْ تُسَرَّ.

7 ثُمَّ قُلْتُ: هنَذَا أَجِيءُ. فِي دَرْجِ الْكِتَابِ مَكْتُوبٌ عَنِّي، لأَفْعَلَ مَشِيئَتَكَ يَا أَللهُ».

8 إِذْ يَقُولُ آنِفًا: «إِنَّكَ ذَبِيحَةً وَقُرْبَانًا وَمُحْرَقَاتٍ وَذَبَائِحَ لِلْخَطِيَّةِ لَمْ تُرِدْ وَلاَ سُرِرْتَ بِهَا». الَّتِي تُقَدَّمُ حَسَبَ النَّامُوسِ.

9 ثُمَّ قَالَ: «هنَذَا أَجِيءُ لأَفْعَلَ مَشِيئَتَكَ يَا أَللهُ». يَنْزِعُ الأَوَّلَ لِكَيْ يُثَبِّتَ الثَّانِيَ.

10 فَبِهذِهِ الْمَشِيئَةِ نَحْنُ مُقَدَّسُونَ بِتَقْدِيمِ جَسَدِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ مَرَّةً وَاحِدَةً.

11 وَكُلُّ كَاهِنٍ يَقُومُ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ يَخْدِمُ وَيُقَدِّمُ مِرَارًا كَثِيرَةً تِلْكَ الذَّبَائِحَ عَيْنَهَا، الَّتِي لاَ تَسْتَطِيعُ الْبَتَّةَ أَنْ تَنْزِعَ الْخَطِيَّةَ.

12 وَأَمَّا هذَا فَبَعْدَمَا قَدَّمَ عَنِ الْخَطَايَا ذَبِيحَةً وَاحِدَةً، جَلَسَ إِلَى الأَبَدِ عَنْ يَمِينِ اللهِ،

13 مُنْتَظِرًا بَعْدَ ذلِكَ حَتَّى تُوضَعَ أَعْدَاؤُهُ مَوْطِئًا لِقَدَمَيْهِ.

14 لأَنَّهُ بِقُرْبَانٍ وَاحِدٍ قَدْ أَكْمَلَ إِلَى الأَبَدِ الْمُقَدَّسِينَ.

إنجيل يوحنا ٤ : ٣١ – ٣٨

31 وَفِي أَثْنَاءِ ذلِكَ سَأَلَهُ تَلاَمِيذُهُ قَائِلِينَ: «يَا مُعَلِّمُ، كُلْ»

32 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «أَنَا لِي طَعَامٌ لآكُلَ لَسْتُمْ تَعْرِفُونَهُ أَنْتُمْ.»

33 فَقَالَ التَّلاَمِيذُ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ: «أَلَعَلَّ أَحَدًا أَتَاهُ بِشَيْءٍ لِيَأْكُلَ؟»

34 قَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «طَعَامِي أَنْ أَعْمَلَ مَشِيئَةَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي وَأُتَمِّمَ عَمَلَهُ.

35 أَمَا تَقُولُونَ: إِنَّهُ يَكُونُ أَرْبَعَةُ أَشْهُرٍ ثُمَّ يَأْتِي الْحَصَادُ؟ هَا أَنَا أَقُولُ لَكُمُ: ارْفَعُوا أَعْيُنَكُمْ وَانْظُرُوا الْحُقُولَ إِنَّهَا قَدِ ابْيَضَّتْ لِلْحَصَادِ.

36 وَالْحَاصِدُ يَأْخُذُ أُجْرَةً وَيَجْمَعُ ثَمَرًا لِلْحَيَاةِ الأَبَدِيَّةِ، لِكَيْ يَفْرَحَ الزَّارِعُ وَالْحَاصِدُ مَعًا.

37 لأَنَّهُ فِي هذَا يَصْدُقُ الْقَوْلُ: إِنَّ وَاحِدًا يَزْرَعُ وَآخَرَ يَحْصُدُ.

38 أَنَا أَرْسَلْتُكُمْ لِتَحْصُدُوا مَا لَمْ تَتْعَبُوا فِيهِ. آخَرُونَ تَعِبُوا وَأَنْتُمْ قَدْ دَخَلْتُمْ عَلَى تَعَبِهِمْ.»

Sayings of the Saints

Often have I spoken and regretted, but for silence I never did
كثيرًا ما تكلمت فندمت.. وأما عن سكوتي، فما ندمت قط
