Fifth Sunday after Easter

1st Reading : Acts 13:26-40

26 Men and brethren, sons of the family of Abraham, and those among you who fear God, to you the word of this salvation has been sent. 

27 For those who dwell in Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they did not know Him, nor even the voices of the Prophets which are read every Sabbath, have fulfilled them in condemning Him. 

28 And though they found no cause for death in Him, they asked Pilate that He should be put to death. 

29 Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb. 

30 But God raised Him from the dead. 

31 He was seen for many days by those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are His witnesses to the people. 

32And we declare to you glad tidings–that promise which was made to the fathers.

33 God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus. As it is also written in the second Psalm: ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.’ 

34And that He raised Him from the dead, no more to return to corruption, He has spoken thus: ‘I will give you the sure mercies of David.’ 

35 Therefore He also says in another Psalm: ‘You will not allow Your Holy One to see corruption.’ 

36 “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption; 

37 but He whom God raised up saw no corruption. 

38 Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; 

39 and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.

40 Beware therefore, lest what has been spoken in the prophets come upon you.

2nd Reading : Colossians 1:21-29

21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 

22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight– 

23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister. 

24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, 

25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 

26the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 

27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 

28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 

29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.

Gospel – Luke 9:51-62

51 Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, 

52 and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. 

53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. 

54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?” 

55 But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. 

56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” And they went to another village. 

57 Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.” 

58 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” 

59Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 

60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.” 

61 And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.” 

62 But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

الأحد الخامس بعد عيد القيامة المجيد

القرائة الأولى : أعمال 13: 26 – 40

26 «أَيُّهَا الرِّجَالُ الإِخْوَةُ بَنِي جِنْسِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، وَالَّذِينَ بَيْنَكُمْ يَتَّقُونَ اللهَ، إِلَيْكُمْ أُرْسِلَتْ كَلِمَةُ هذَا الْخَلاَصِ.

27 لأَنَّ السَّاكِنِينَ فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ وَرُؤَسَاءَهُمْ لَمْ يَعْرِفُوا هذَا. وَأَقْوَالُ الأَنْبِيَاءِ الَّتِي تُقْرَأُ كُلَّ سَبْتٍ تَمَّمُوهَا، إِذْ حَكَمُوا عَلَيْهِ.

28 وَمَعْ أَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَجِدُوا عِلَّةً وَاحِدَةً لِلْمَوْتِ طَلَبُوا مِنْ بِيلاَطُسَ أَنْ يُقْتَلَ.

29 وَلَمَّا تَمَّمُوا كُلَّ مَا كُتِبَ عَنْهُ، أَنْزَلُوهُ عَنِ الْخَشَبَةِ وَوَضَعُوهُ فِي قَبْرٍ.

30 وَلكِنَّ اللهَ أَقَامَهُ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ.

31 وَظَهَرَ أَيَّامًا كَثِيرَةً لِلَّذِينَ صَعِدُوا مَعَهُ مِنَ الْجَلِيلِ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، الَّذِينَ هُمْ شُهُودُهُ عِنْدَ الشَّعْبِ.

32 وَنَحْنُ نُبَشِّرُكُمْ بِالْمَوْعِدِ الَّذِي صَارَ لآبَائِنَا،

33 إِنَّ اللهَ قَدْ أَكْمَلَ هذَا لَنَا نَحْنُ أَوْلاَدَهُمْ، إِذْ أَقَامَ يَسُوعَ كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ أَيْضًا فِي الْمَزْمُورِ الثَّانِي: أَنْتَ ابْنِي أَنَا الْيَوْمَ وَلَدْتُكَ.

34 إِنَّهُ أَقَامَهُ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ، غَيْرَ عَتِيدٍ أَنْ يَعُودَ أَيْضًا إِلَى فَسَادٍ، فَهكَذَا قَالَ: إِنِّي سَأُعْطِيكُمْ مَرَاحِمَ دَاوُدَ الصَّادِقَةَ.

35 وَلِذلِكَ قَالَ أَيْضًا فِي مَزْمُورٍ آخَرَ:لَنْ تَدَعَ قُدُّوسَكَ يَرَى فَسَادًا.

36 لأَنَّ دَاوُدَ بَعْدَ مَا خَدَمَ جِيلَهُ بِمَشُورَةِ اللهِ، رَقَدَ وَانْضَمَّ إِلَى آبَائِهِ، وَرَأَى فَسَادًا.

37 وَأَمَّا الَّذِي أَقَامَهُ اللهُ فَلَمْ يَرَ فَسَادًا.

38 فَلْيَكُنْ مَعْلُومًا عِنْدَكُمْ أَيُّهَا الرِّجَالُ الإِخْوَةُ، أَنَّهُ بِهذَا يُنَادَى لَكُمْ بِغُفْرَانِ الْخَطَايَا،

39 وَبِهذَا يَتَبَرَّرُ كُلُّ مَنْ يُؤْمِنُ مِنْ كُلِّ مَا لَمْ تَقْدِرُوا أَنْ تَتَبَرَّرُوا مِنْهُ بِنَامُوسِ مُوسَى.

40 فَانْظُرُوا لِئَلاَّ يَأْتِيَ عَلَيْكُمْ مَا قِيلَ فِي الأَنْبِيَاءِ:

القرائة الثانية : كولوسي 1: 21 – 29

21 وَأَنْتُمُ الَّذِينَ كُنْتُمْ قَبْلاً أَجْنَبِيِّينَ وَأَعْدَاءً فِي الْفِكْرِ، فِي الأَعْمَالِ الشِّرِّيرَةِ، قَدْ صَالَحَكُمُ الآنَ

22 فِي جِسْمِ بَشَرِيَّتِهِ بِالْمَوْتِ، لِيُحْضِرَكُمْ قِدِّيسِينَ وَبِلاَ لَوْمٍ وَلاَ شَكْوَى أَمَامَهُ،

23 إِنْ ثَبَتُّمْ عَلَى الإِيمَانِ، مُتَأَسِّسِينَ وَرَاسِخِينَ وَغَيْرَ مُنْتَقِلِينَ عَنْ رَجَاءِ الإِنْجِيلِ، الَّذِي سَمِعْتُمُوهُ، الْمَكْرُوزِ بِهِ فِي كُلِّ الْخَلِيقَةِ الَّتِي تَحْتَ السَّمَاءِ، الَّذِي صِرْتُ أَنَا بُولُسَ خَادِمًا لَهُ.

24 الَّذِي الآنَ أَفْرَحُ فِي آلاَمِي لأَجْلِكُمْ، وَأُكَمِّلُ نَقَائِصَ شَدَائِدِ الْمَسِيحِ فِي جِسْمِي لأَجْلِ جَسَدِهِ، الَّذِي هُوَ الْكَنِيسَةُ،

25 الَّتِي صِرْتُ أَنَا خَادِمًا لَهَا، حَسَبَ تَدْبِيرِ اللهِ الْمُعْطَى لِي لأَجْلِكُمْ، لِتَتْمِيمِ كَلِمَةِ اللهِ.

26 السِّرِّ الْمَكْتُومِ مُنْذُ الدُّهُورِ وَمُنْذُ الأَجْيَالِ، لكِنَّهُ الآنَ قَدْ أُظْهِرَ لِقِدِّيسِيهِ،

27 الَّذِينَ أَرَادَ اللهُ أَنْ يُعَرِّفَهُمْ مَا هُوَ غِنَى مَجْدِ هذَا السِّرِّ فِي الأُمَمِ، الَّذِي هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ فِيكُمْ رَجَاءُ الْمَجْدِ.

28 الَّذِي نُنَادِي بِهِ مُنْذِرِينَ كُلَّ إِنْسَانٍ، وَمُعَلِّمِينَ كُلَّ إِنْسَانٍ، بِكُلِّ حِكْمَةٍ، لِكَيْ نُحْضِرَ كُلَّ إِنْسَانٍ كَامِلاً فِي الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ.

29 الأَمْرُ الَّذِي لأَجْلِهِ أَتْعَبُ أَيْضًا مُجَاهِدًا، بِحَسَبِ عَمَلِهِ الَّذِي يَعْمَلُ فِيَّ بِقُوَّةٍ.

قرائة الأنجيل : لوقا 9 : 51 – 62

51 وَحِينَ تَمَّتِ الأَيَّامُ لارْتِفَاعِهِ ثَبَّتَ وَجْهَهُ لِيَنْطَلِقَ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ،

52 وَأَرْسَلَ أَمَامَ وَجْهِهِ رُسُلاً، فَذَهَبُوا وَدَخَلُوا قَرْيَةً لِلسَّامِرِيِّينَ حَتَّى يُعِدُّوا لَهُ.

53 فَلَمْ يَقْبَلُوهُ لأَنَّ وَجْهَهُ كَانَ مُتَّجِهًا نَحْوَ أُورُشَلِيمَ.

54 فَلَمَّا رَأَى ذلِكَ تِلْمِيذَاهُ يَعْقُوبُ وَيُوحَنَّا، قَالاَ: «يَا رَبُّ، أَتُرِيدُ أَنْ نَقُولَ أَنْ تَنْزِلَ نَارٌ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ فَتُفْنِيَهُمْ، كَمَا فَعَلَ إِيلِيَّا أَيْضًا؟»

55 فَالْتَفَتَ وَانْتَهَرَهُمَا وَقَالَ: «لَسْتُمَا تَعْلَمَانِ مِنْ أَيِّ رُوحٍ أَنْتُمَا!

56 لأَنَّ ابْنَ الإِنْسَانِ لَمْ يَأْتِ لِيُهْلِكَ أَنْفُسَ النَّاسِ، بَلْ لِيُخَلِّصَ». فَمَضَوْا إِلَى قَرْيَةٍ أُخْرَى.

57 وَفِيمَا هُمْ سَائِرُونَ فِي الطَّرِيقِ قَالَ لَهُ وَاحِدٌ: «يَا سَيِّدُ، أَتْبَعُكَ أَيْنَمَا تَمْضِي».

58 فَقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «لِلثَّعَالِبِ أَوْجِرَةٌ، وَلِطُيُورِ السَّمَاءِ أَوْكَارٌ، وَأَمَّا ابْنُ الإِنْسَانِ فَلَيْسَ لَهُ أَيْنَ يُسْنِدُ رَأْسَهُ».

59 وَقَالَ لآخَرَ: «اتْبَعْنِي». فَقَالَ: «يَا سَيِّدُ، ائْذَنْ لِي أَنْ أَمْضِيَ أَوَّلاً وَأَدْفِنَ أَبِي».

60 فَقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «دَعِ الْمَوْتَى يَدْفِنُونَ مَوْتَاهُمْ، وَأَمَّا أَنْتَ فَاذْهَبْ وَنَادِ بِمَلَكُوتِ اللهِ».

61 وَقَالَ آخَرُ أَيْضًا: «أَتْبَعُكَ يَا سَيِّدُ، وَلكِنِ ائْذَنْ لِي أَوَّلاً أَنْ أُوَدِّعَ الَّذِينَ فِي بَيْتِي».

62 فَقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «لَيْسَ أَحَدٌ يَضَعُ يَدَهُ عَلَى الْمِحْرَاثِ وَيَنْظُرُ إِلَى الْوَرَاءِ يَصْلُحُ لِمَلَكُوتِ اللهِ».

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
