Renewal of the Church

1st Reading: Acts 2: 22-36

22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know–

23 Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death;

24 whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it.

25 For David says concerning Him: ‘I foresaw the Lord always before my face, For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.

26Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad; Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.

27 For You will not leave my soul in Hades, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

28 You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence.’

29 “Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.

30 Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne,

31 he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption.

32 This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses.

33 Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.

34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand,

35 Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” ‘

36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”

2nd. Reading: Galatians 1: 11-24

11 But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.

12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.

13 For you have heard of my former conduct in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it.

14 And I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.

15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace,

16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,

17nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned again to Damascus.

18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and remained with him fifteen days.

19 But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the Lord’s brother.

20 (Now concerning the things which I write to you, indeed, before God, I do not lie.)

21 Afterward I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.

22 And I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea which were in Christ.

23 But they were hearing only, “He who formerly persecuted us now preaches the faith which he once tried to destroy.”

24 And they glorified God in me.

Gospel: Luke 9: 18-25

18 And it happened, as He was alone praying, that His disciples joined Him, and He asked them, saying, “Who do the crowds say that I am?”

19 So they answered and said, “John the Baptist, but some say Elijah; and others say that one of the old prophets has risen again.”

20 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered and said, “The Christ of God.”

21 And He strictly warned and commanded them to tell this to no one,

22 saying, “The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.”

23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

24 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.

25 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?

القرائة الأولى: أعمال 2: 22 – 36

اسْمَعُوا هذِهِ الأَقْوَالَ: يَسُوعُ النَّاصِرِيُّ رَجُلٌ قَدْ تَبَرْهَنَ لَكُمْ مِنْ قِبَلِ اللهِ بِقُوَّاتٍ وَعَجَائِبَ وَآيَاتٍ صَنَعَهَا اللهُ بِيَدِهِ فِي وَسْطِكُمْ، كَمَا أَنْتُمْ أَيْضًا تَعْلَمُونَ.

23 هذَا أَخَذْتُمُوهُ مُسَلَّمًا بِمَشُورَةِ اللهِ الْمَحْتُومَةِ وَعِلْمِهِ السَّابِقِ، وَبِأَيْدِي أَثَمَةٍ صَلَبْتُمُوهُ وَقَتَلْتُمُوهُ.

24 اَلَّذِي أَقَامَهُ اللهُ نَاقِضًا أَوْجَاعَ الْمَوْتِ، إِذْ لَمْ يَكُنْ مُمْكِنًا أَنْ يُمْسَكَ مِنْهُ.

25 لأَنَّ دَاوُدَ يَقُولُ فِيهِ: كُنْتُ أَرَى الرَّبَّ أَمَامِي فِي كُلِّ حِينٍ، أَنَّهُ عَنْ يَمِينِي، لِكَيْ لاَ أَتَزَعْزَعَ.

26 لِذلِكَ سُرَّ قَلْبِي وَتَهَلَّلَ لِسَانِي. حَتَّى جَسَدِي أَيْضًا سَيَسْكُنُ عَلَى رَجَاءٍ.

27 لأَنَّكَ لَنْ تَتْرُكَ نَفْسِي فِي الْهَاوِيَةِ وَلاَ تَدَعَ قُدُّوسَكَ يَرَى فَسَادًا.

28 عَرَّفْتَنِي سُبُلَ الْحَيَاةِ وَسَتَمْلأُنِي سُرُورًا مَعَ وَجْهِكَ.

29 أَيُّهَا الرِّجَالُ الإِخْوَةُ، يَسُوغُ أَنْ يُقَالَ لَكُمْ جِهَارًا عَنْ رَئِيسِ الآبَاءِ دَاوُدَ إِنَّهُ مَاتَ وَدُفِنَ، وَقَبْرُهُ عِنْدَنَا حَتَّى هذَا الْيَوْمِ.

30 فَإِذْ كَانَ نَبِيًّا، وَعَلِمَ أَنَّ اللهَ حَلَفَ لَهُ بِقَسَمٍ أَنَّهُ مِنْ ثَمَرَةِ صُلْبِهِ يُقِيمُ الْمَسِيحَ حَسَبَ الْجَسَدِ لِيَجْلِسَ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّهِ،

31 سَبَقَ فَرَأَى وَتَكَلَّمَ عَنْ قِيَامَةِ الْمَسِيحِ، أَنَّهُ لَمْ تُتْرَكْ نَفْسُهُ فِي الْهَاوِيَةِ وَلاَ رَأَى جَسَدُهُ فَسَادًا.

32 فَيَسُوعُ هذَا أَقَامَهُ اللهُ، وَنَحْنُ جَمِيعًا شُهُودٌ لِذلِكَ.

33 وَإِذِ ارْتَفَعَ بِيَمِينِ اللهِ، وَأَخَذَ مَوْعِدَ الرُّوحِ الْقُدُسِ مِنَ الآبِ، سَكَبَ هذَا الَّذِي أَنْتُمُ الآنَ تُبْصِرُونَهُ وَتَسْمَعُونَهُ.

34 لأَنَّ دَاوُدَ لَمْ يَصْعَدْ إِلَى السَّمَاوَاتِ. وَهُوَ نَفْسُهُ يَقُولُ: قَالَ الرَّبُّ لِرَبِّي: اجْلِسْ عَنْ يَمِينِي

35 حَتَّى أَضَعَ أَعْدَاءَكَ مَوْطِئًا لِقَدَمَيْكَ.

36 فَلْيَعْلَمْ يَقِينًا جَمِيعُ بَيْتِ إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنَّ اللهَ جَعَلَ يَسُوعَ هذَا، الَّذِي صَلَبْتُمُوهُ أَنْتُمْ، رَبًّا وَمَسِيحًا».

القرائة الثانية : غلاطية 1: 11-24

11 وَأُعَرِّفُكُمْ أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ الإِنْجِيلَ الَّذِي بَشَّرْتُ بِهِ، أَنَّهُ لَيْسَ بِحَسَبِ إِنْسَانٍ.

12 لأَنِّي لَمْ أَقْبَلْهُ مِنْ عِنْدِ إِنْسَانٍ وَلاَ عُلِّمْتُهُ. بَلْ بِإِعْلاَنِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ.

13 فَإِنَّكُمْ سَمِعْتُمْ بِسِيرَتِي قَبْلاً فِي الدِّيَانَةِ الْيَهُودِيَّةِ، أَنِّي كُنْتُ أَضْطَهِدُ كَنِيسَةَ اللهِ بِإِفْرَاطٍ وَأُتْلِفُهَا.

14 وَكُنْتُ أَتَقَدَّمُ فِي الدِّيَانَةِ الْيَهُودِيَّةِ عَلَى كَثِيرِينَ مِنْ أَتْرَابِي فِي جِنْسِي، إِذْ كُنْتُ أَوْفَرَ غَيْرَةً فِي تَقْلِيدَاتِ آبَائِي.

15 وَلكِنْ لَمَّا سَرَّ اللهَ الَّذِي أَفْرَزَنِي مِنْ بَطْنِ أُمِّي، وَدَعَانِي بِنِعْمَتِهِ

16 أَنْ يُعْلِنَ ابْنَهُ فِيَّ لأُبَشِّرَ بِهِ بَيْنَ الأُمَمِ، لِلْوَقْتِ لَمْ أَسْتَشِرْ لَحْمًا وَدَمًا

17 وَلاَ صَعِدْتُ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، إِلَى الرُّسُلِ الَّذِينَ قَبْلِي، بَلِ انْطَلَقْتُ إِلَى الْعَرَبِيَّةِ، ثُمَّ رَجَعْتُ أَيْضًا إِلَى دِمَشْقَ.

18 ثُمَّ بَعْدَ ثَلاَثِ سِنِينَ صَعِدْتُ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ لأَتَعَرَّفَ بِبُطْرُسَ، فَمَكَثْتُ عِنْدَهُ خَمْسَةَ عَشَرَ يَوْمًا.

19 وَلكِنَّنِي لَمْ أَرَ غَيْرَهُ مِنَ الرُّسُلِ إِلاَّ يَعْقُوبَ أَخَا الرَّبِّ.

20 وَالَّذِي أَكْتُبُ بِهِ إِلَيْكُمْ هُوَذَا قُدَّامَ اللهِ أَنِّي لَسْتُ أَكْذِبُ فِيهِ.

21 وَبَعْدَ ذلِكَ جِئْتُ إِلَى أَقَالِيمِ سُورِيَّةَ وَكِيلِيكِيَّةَ.

22 وَلكِنَّنِي كُنْتُ غَيْرَ مَعْرُوفٍ بِالْوَجْهِ عِنْدَ كَنَائِسِ الْيَهُودِيَّةِ الَّتِي فِي الْمَسِيحِ.

23 غَيْرَ أَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا يَسْمَعُونَ: « أَنَّ الَّذِي كَانَ يَضْطَهِدُنَا قَبْلاً، يُبَشِّرُ الآنَ بِالإِيمَانِ الَّذِي كَانَ قَبْلاً يُتْلِفُهُ».

24 فَكَانُوا يُمَجِّدُونَ اللهَ فِيَّ.

قرائة الأنجيل: لوقا 9 : 18- 25

18 وَفِيمَا هُوَ يُصَلِّي عَلَى انْفِرَادٍ كَانَ التَّلاَمِيذُ مَعَهُ. فَسَأَلَهُمْ قِائِلاً: «مَنْ تَقُولُ الْجُمُوعُ أَنِّي أَنَا؟»

19 فَأَجَابُوا وَقَالوا: «يُوحَنَّا الْمَعْمَدَانُ. وَآخَرُونَ: إِيلِيَّا. وَآخَرُونَ: إِنَّ نَبِيًّا مِنَ الْقُدَمَاءِ قَامَ».

20 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «وَأَنْتُمْ، مَنْ تَقُولُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا؟» فَأَجَابَ بُطْرُسُ وَقَالَ: «مَسِيحُ اللهِ!».

21 فَانْتَهَرَهُمْ وَأَوْصَى أَنْ لاَ يَقُولُوا ذلِكَ لأَحَدٍ،

22 قَائِلاً: «إِنَّهُ يَنْبَغِي أَنَّ ابْنَ الإِنْسَانِ يَتَأَلَّمُ كَثِيرًا، وَيُرْفَضُ مِنَ الشُّيُوخِ وَرُؤَسَاءِ الْكَهَنَةِ وَالْكَتَبَةِ، وَيُقْتَلُ، وَفِي الْيَوْمِ الثَّالِثِ يَقُومُ».

23 وَقَالَ لِلْجَمِيعِ: «إِنْ أَرَادَ أَحَدٌ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ وَرَائِي، فَلْيُنْكِرْ نَفْسَهُ وَيَحْمِلْ صَلِيبَهُ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ، وَيَتْبَعْنِي.

24 فَإِنَّ مَنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يُخَلِّصَ نَفْسَهُ يُهْلِكُهَا، وَمَنْ يُهْلِكُ نَفْسَهُ مِنْ أَجْلِي فَهذَا يُخَلِّصُهَا.

25 لأَنَّهُ مَاذَا يَنْتَفِعُ الإِنْسَانُ لَوْ رَبحَ الْعَالَمَ كُلَّهُ، وَأَهْلَكَ نَفْسَهُ أَوْ خَسِرَهَا؟
