Third of the Middle Sundays of Easter

1st Reading: Acts 19: 30-41

30 And when Paul wanted to go in to the people, the disciples would not allow him.

31 Then some of the officials of Asia, who were his friends, sent to him pleading that he would not venture into the theater.

32 Some therefore cried one thing and some another, for the assembly was confused, and most of them did not know why they had come together.

33And they drew Alexander out of the multitude, the Jews putting him forward. And Alexander motioned with his hand, and wanted to make his defense to the people.

34 But when they found out that he was a Jew, all with one voice cried out for about two hours, “Great is Diana of the Ephesians!”

35 And when the city clerk had quieted the crowd, he said: “Men of Ephesus, what man is there who does not know that the city of the Ephesians is temple guardian of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Zeus?

36 Therefore, since these things cannot be denied, you ought to be quiet and do nothing rashly.

37 For you have brought these men here who are neither robbers of temples nor blasphemers of your goddess.

38 Therefore, if Demetrius and his fellow craftsmen have a case against anyone, the courts are open and there are proconsuls. Let them bring charges against one another.

39 But if you have any other inquiry to make, it shall be determined in the lawful assembly.

40 For we are in danger of being called in question for today’s uproar, there being no reason which we may give to account for this disorderly gathering.”

41 And when he had said these things, he dismissed the assembly.

 2nd. Reading: 1 Corinthians 4: 6-16

6 Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that you may learn in us not to think beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up on behalf of one against the other.

7 For who makes you differ from another? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?

8 You are already full! You are already rich! You have reigned as kings without us–and indeed I could wish you did reign, that we also might reign with you!

9 For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last, as men condemned to death; for we have been made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men.

10 We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored!

11 To the present hour we both hunger and thirst, and we are poorly clothed, and beaten, and homeless.

12 And we labor, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure;

13 being defamed, we entreat. We have been made as the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things until now.

14 I do not write these things to shame you, but as my beloved children I warn you.

15 For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.

16 Therefore I urge you, imitate me.

Gospel: Matthew 14: 14-23

14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.

15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food.”

16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

17 And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”

18 He said, “Bring them here to Me.”

19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.

20 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.

21 Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

22 Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away.

23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.

الأحد الثالث من الآحاد المتوسطة للقيامة

أعمال 19 : 30 – 41

 30 وَلَمَّا كَانَ بُولُسُ يُرِيدُ أَنْ يَدْخُلَ بَيْنَ الشَّعْبِ، لَمْ يَدَعْهُ التَّلاَمِيذُ.

31 وَأُنَاسٌ مِنْ وُجُوهِ أَسِيَّا، كَانُوا أَصْدِقَاءَهُ، أَرْسَلُوا يَطْلُبُونَ إِلَيْهِ أَنْ لاَ يُسَلِّمَ نَفْسَهُ إِلَى الْمَشْهَدِ.

32 وَكَانَ الْبَعْضُ يَصْرُخُونَ بِشَيْءٍ وَالْبَعْضُ بِشَيْءٍ آخَرَ، لأَنَّ الْمَحْفِلَ كَانَ مُضْطَرِبًا، وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ لاَ يَدْرُونَ لأَيِّ شَيْءٍ كَانُوا قَدِ اجْتَمَعُوا!

33 فَاجْتَذَبُوا إِسْكَنْدَرَ مِنَ الْجَمْعِ، وَكَانَ الْيَهُودُ يَدْفَعُونَهُ. فَأَشَارَ إِسْكَنْدَرُ بِيَدِهِ يُرِيدُ أَنْ يَحْتَجَّ لِلشَّعْبِ.

34 فَلَمَّا عَرَفُوا أَنَّهُ يَهُودِيٌّ، صَارَ صَوْتٌ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ الْجَمِيعِ صَارِخِينَ نَحْوَ مُدَّةِ سَاعَتَيْنِ: «عَظِيمَةٌ هِيَ أَرْطَامِيسُ الأَفَسُسِيِّينَ! «.

35 ثُمَّ سَكَّنَ الْكَاتِبُ الْجَمْعَ وَقَالَ: «أَيُّهَا الرِّجَالُ الأَفَسُسِيُّونَ، مَنْ هُوَ الإِنْسَانُ الَّذِي لاَ يَعْلَمُ أَنَّ مَدِينَةَ الأَفَسُسِيِّينَ مُتَعَبِّدَةٌ لأَرْطَامِيسَ الإِلهَةِ الْعَظِيمَةِ وَالتِّمْثَالِ الَّذِي هَبَطَ مِنْ زَفْسَ؟

36 فَإِذْ كَانَتْ هذِهِ الأَشْيَاءُ لاَ تُقَاوَمُ، يَنْبَغِي أَنْ تَكُونُوا هَادِئِينَ وَلاَ تَفْعَلُوا شَيْئًا اقْتِحَامًا.

37 لأَنَّكُمْ أَتَيْتُمْ بِهذَيْنِ الرَّجُلَيْنِ، وَهُمَا لَيْسَا سَارِقَيْ هَيَاكِلَ، وَلاَ مُجَدِّفَيْنِ عَلَى إِلهَتِكُمْ.

38 فَإِنْ كَانَ دِيمِتْرِيُوسُ وَالصُّنَّاعُ الَّذِينَ مَعَهُ لَهُمْ دَعْوَى عَلَى أَحَدٍ، فَإِنَّهُ تُقَامُ أَيَّامٌ لِلْقَضَاءِ، وَيُوجَدُ وُلاَةٌ، فَلْيُرَافِعُوا بَعْضُهُمْ بَعْضًا.

39 وَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَطْلُبُونَ شَيْئًا مِنْ جِهَةِ أُمُورٍ أُخَرَ، فَإِنَّهُ يُقْضَى فِي مَحْفِل شَرْعِيٍّ.

40 لأَنَّنَا فِي خَطَرٍ أَنْ نُحَاكَمَ مِنْ أَجْلِ فِتْنَةِ هذَا الْيَوْمِ. وَلَيْسَ عِلَّةٌ يُمْكِنُنَا مِنْ أَجْلِهَا أَنْ نُقَدِّمَ حِسَابًا عَنْ هذَا التَّجَمُّعِ«.

41  وَلَمَّا قَالَ هذَا صَرَفَ الْمَحْفِلَ.

1 كورونثوس 4: 6 – 16

6 فَهذَا أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ حَوَّلْتُهُ تَشْبِيهًا إِلَى نَفْسِي وَإِلَى أَبُلُّوسَ مِنْ أَجْلِكُمْ، لِكَيْ تَتَعَلَّمُوا فِينَا: «أَنْ لاَ تَفْتَكِرُوا فَوْقَ مَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ»، كَيْ لاَ يَنْتَفِخَ أَحَدٌ لأَجْلِ الْوَاحِدِ عَلَى الآخَرِ.

7 لأَنَّهُ مَنْ يُمَيِّزُكَ؟ وَأَيُّ شَيْءٍ لَكَ لَمْ تَأْخُذْهُ؟ وَإِنْ كُنْتَ قَدْ أَخَذْتَ، فَلِمَاذَا تَفْتَخِرُ كَأَنَّكَ لَمْ تَأْخُذْ؟

8 إِنَّكُمْ قَدْ شَبِعْتُمْ! قَدِ اسْتَغْنَيْتُمْ! مَلَكْتُمْ بِدُونِنَا! وَلَيْتَكُمْ مَلَكْتُمْ لِنَمْلِكَ نَحْنُ أَيْضًا مَعَكُمْ!

9 فَإِنِّي أَرَى أَنَّ اللهَ أَبْرَزَنَا نَحْنُ الرُّسُلَ آخِرِينَ، كَأَنَّنَا مَحْكُومٌ عَلَيْنَا بِالْمَوْتِ. لأَنَّنَا صِرْنَا مَنْظَرًا لِلْعَالَمِ، لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ وَالنَّاسِ.

10 نَحْنُ جُهَّالٌ مِنْ أَجْلِ الْمَسِيحِ، وَأَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَحُكَمَاءُ فِي الْمَسِيحِ! نَحْنُ ضُعَفَاءُ، وَأَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَأَقْوِيَاءُ! أَنْتُمْ مُكَرَّمُونَ، وَأَمَّا نَحْنُ فَبِلاَ كَرَامَةٍ!

11 إِلَى هذِهِ السَّاعَةِ نَجُوعُ وَنَعْطَشُ وَنَعْرَى وَنُلْكَمُ وَلَيْسَ لَنَا إِقَامَةٌ،

12 وَنَتْعَبُ عَامِلِينَ بِأَيْدِينَا. نُشْتَمُ فَنُبَارِكُ. نُضْطَهَدُ فَنَحْتَمِلُ.

13 يُفْتَرَى عَلَيْنَا فَنَعِظُ. صِرْنَا كَأَقْذَارِ الْعَالَمِ وَوَسَخِ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ إِلَى الآنَ.

14 لَيْسَ لِكَيْ أُخَجِّلَكُمْ أَكْتُبُ بِهذَا، بَلْ كَأَوْلاَدِي الأَحِبَّاءِ أُنْذِرُكُمْ.

15 لأَنَّهُ وَإِنْ كَانَ لَكُمْ رَبَوَاتٌ مِنَ الْمُرْشِدِينَ فِي الْمَسِيحِ، لكِنْ لَيْسَ آبَاءٌ كَثِيرُونَ. لأَنِّي أَنَا وَلَدْتُكُمْ فِي الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ بِالإِنْجِيلِ.

16 فَأَطْلُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَنْ تَكُونُوا مُتَمَثِّلِينَ بِي.

قرائة الإنجيل : متى 14 : 14 – 23

14 فَلَمَّا خَرَجَ يَسُوعُ أَبْصَرَ جَمْعًا كَثِيرًا فَتَحَنَّنَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَشَفَى مَرْضَاهُمْ.

15 وَلَمَّا صَارَ الْمَسَاءُ تَقَدَّمَ إِلَيْهِ تَلاَمِيذُهُ قَائِلِينَ: «الْمَوْضِعُ خَلاَءٌ وَالْوَقْتُ قَدْ مَضَى. اِصْرِفِ الْجُمُوعَ لِكَيْ يَمْضُوا إِلَى الْقُرَى وَيَبْتَاعُوا لَهُمْ طَعَامًا».

16 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «لاَ حَاجَةَ لَهُمْ أَنْ يَمْضُوا. أَعْطُوهُمْ أَنْتُمْ لِيَأْكُلُوا».

17 فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «لَيْسَ عِنْدَنَا ههُنَا إِلاَّ خَمْسَةُ أَرْغِفَةٍ وَسَمَكَتَانِ».

18 فَقَالَ: «ائْتُوني بِهَا إِلَى هُنَا».

19 فَأَمَرَ الْجُمُوعَ أَنْ يَتَّكِئُوا عَلَى الْعُشْبِ. ثُمَّ أَخَذَ الأَرْغِفَةَ الْخَمْسَةَ وَالسَّمَكَتَيْنِ، وَرَفَعَ نَظَرَهُ نَحْوَ السَّمَاءِ وَبَارَكَ وَكَسَّرَ وَأَعْطَى الأَرْغِفَةَ لِلتَّلاَمِيذِ، وَالتَّلاَمِيذُ لِلْجُمُوعِ.

20 فَأَكَلَ الْجَمِيعُ وَشَبِعُوا. ثُمَّ رَفَعُوا مَا فَضَلَ مِنَ الْكِسَرِ اثْنَتَيْ عَشْرَةَ قُفَّةً مَمْلُوءةً.

21 وَالآ كِلُونَ كَانُوا نَحْوَ خَمْسَةِ آلاَفِ رَجُل، مَا عَدَا النِّسَاءَ وَالأَوْلاَدَ.

22 وَلِلْوَقْتِ أَلْزَمَ يَسُوعُ تَلاَمِيذَهُ أَنْ يَدْخُلُوا السَّفِينَةَ وَيَسْبِقُوهُ إِلَى الْعَبْرِ حَتَّى يَصْرِفَ الْجُمُوعَ.

23 وَبَعْدَمَا صَرَفَ الْجُمُوعَ صَعِدَ إِلَى الْجَبَلِ مُنْفَرِدًا لِيُصَلِّيَ. وَلَمَّا صَارَ الْمَسَاءُ كَانَ هُنَاكَ وَحْدَهُ.

Sayings of the Saints

The Human being is formed of a body and a soul. If he does not feed the body with bread, he will not live. The same applies to the soul, if it is not fed with prayer and spiritual knowledge, then it is dead.
الانسان مكوّن من جسد ونفس ، ان لم يتغذى الجسد بالخبز فلن يعيش، كذلك النفس ان لم تتغذى بالصلاة والمعرفة الروحانية فهي مائتة
