Second of the Middle Sundays of Easter

1st Reading: Acts 19: 13-22

13 Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” 

14 Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so. 

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?” 

16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 

17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 

18 And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. 

19 Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. 

20 So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed. 

21 When these things were accomplished, Paul purposed in the Spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, saying, “After I have been there, I must also see Rome.” 

22 So he sent into Macedonia two of those who ministered to him, Timothy and Erastus, but he himself stayed in Asia for a time.

 2nd.  Reading: 1 Corinthians 3: 16-23

16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 

17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. 

18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”; 

20 and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.” 

21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours: 

22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come–all are yours. 

23 And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.

 Gospel: Mark 6: 4-13

4 But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.”

Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.

6 And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.

7 And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.

8 He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff–no bag, no bread, no copper in their money belts–

9 but to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics.

10 Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, stay there till you depart from that place.

11 And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”

12So they went out and preached that people should repent.

13 And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.

 الأحد الثاني من الآحاد المتوسطة للقيامة

أعمال 19 : 13 – 22

13 فَشَرَعَ قَوْمٌ مِنَ الْيَهُودِ الطَّوَّافِينَ الْمُعَزِّمِينَ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا عَلَى الَّذِينَ بِهِمِ الأَرْوَاحُ الشِّرِّيرَةُ بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ، قَائِلِينَ: «نُقْسِمُ عَلَيْكَ بِيَسُوعَ الَّذِي يَكْرِزُ بِهِ بُولُسُ!»

14 وَكَانَ سَبْعَةُ بَنِينَ لِسَكَاوَا، رَجُل يَهُودِيٍّ رَئِيسِ كَهَنَةٍ، الَّذِينَ فَعَلُوا هذَا.

15 فَأَجَابَ الرُّوحُ الشِّرِّيرُ وَقَالَ: «أَمَّا يَسُوعُ فَأَنَا أَعْرِفُهُ، وَبُولُسُ أَنَا أَعْلَمُهُ، وَأَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَمَنْ أَنْتُمْ؟»

16 فَوَثَبَ عَلَيْهِمُ الإِنْسَانُ الَّذِي كَانَ فِيهِ الرُّوحُ الشِّرِّيرُ، وَغَلَبَهُمْ وَقَوِيَ عَلَيْهِمْ، حَتَّى هَرَبُوا مِنْ ذلِكَ الْبَيْتِ عُرَاةً وَمُجَرَّحِينَ.

17 وَصَارَ هذَا مَعْلُومًا عِنْدَ جَمِيعِ الْيَهُودِ وَالْيُونَانِيِّينَ السَّاكِنِينَ فِي أَفَسُسَ. فَوَقَعَ خَوْفٌ عَلَى جَمِيعِهِمْ، وَكَانَ اسْمُ الرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ يَتَعَظَّمُ.

18 وَكَانَ كَثِيرُونَ مِنَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا يَأْتُونَ مُقِرِّينَ وَمُخْبِرِينَ بِأَفْعَالِهِمْ،

19 وَكَانَ كَثِيرُونَ مِنَ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَعْمِلُونَ السِّحْرَ يَجْمَعُونَ الْكُتُبَ وَيُحَرِّقُونَهَا أَمَامَ الْجَمِيعِ. وَحَسَبُوا أَثْمَانَهَا فَوَجَدُوهَا خَمْسِينَ أَلْفًا مِنَ الْفِضَّةِ.

20 هكَذَا كَانَتْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وَتَقْوَى بِشِدَّةٍ.

21 وَلَمَّا كَمِلَتْ هذِهِ الأُمُورُ، وَضَعَ بُولُسُ فِي نَفْسِهِ أَنَّهُ بَعْدَمَا يَجْتَازُ فِي مَكِدُونِيَّةَ وَأَخَائِيَةَ يَذْهَبُ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، قَائِلاً: «إِنِّي بَعْدَ مَا أَصِيرُ هُنَاكَ يَنْبَغِي أَنْ أَرَى رُومِيَةَ أَيْضًا».

22 فَأَرْسَلَ إِلَى مَكِدُونِيَّةَ اثْنَيْنِ مِنَ الَّذِينَ كَانُوا يَخْدِمُونَهُ: تِيمُوثَاوُسَ وَأَرَسْطُوسَ، وَلَبِثَ هُوَ زَمَانًا فِي أَسِيَّا.

1 كورونثوس 3: 16 – 23

16 أَمَا تَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّكُمْ هَيْكَلُ اللهِ، وَرُوحُ اللهِ يَسْكُنُ فِيكُمْ؟

17 إِنْ كَانَ أَحَدٌ يُفْسِدُ هَيْكَلَ اللهِ فَسَيُفْسِدُهُ اللهُ، لأَنَّ هَيْكَلَ اللهِ مُقَدَّسٌ الَّذِي أَنْتُمْ هُوَ.

18 لاَ يَخْدَعَنَّ أَحَدٌ نَفْسَهُ. إِنْ كَانَ أَحَدٌ يَظُنُّ أَنَّهُ حَكِيمٌ بَيْنَكُمْ فِي هذَا الدَّهْرِ، فَلْيَصِرْ جَاهِلاً لِكَيْ يَصِيرَ حَكِيمًا!

19 لأَنَّ حِكْمَةَ هذَا الْعَالَمِ هِيَ جَهَالَةٌ عِنْدَ اللهِ، لأَنَّهُ مَكْتُوبٌ: «الآخِذُ الْحُكَمَاءَ بِمَكْرِهِمْ».

20 وَأَيْضًا: «الرَّبُّ يَعْلَمُ أَفْكَارَ الْحُكَمَاءِ أَنَّهَا بَاطِلَةٌ».

21 إِذًا لاَ يَفْتَخِرَنَّ أَحَدٌ بِالنَّاسِ! فَإِنَّ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ لَكُمْ:

22 أَبُولُسُ، أَمْ أَبُلُّوسُ، أَمْ صَفَا، أَمِ الْعَالَمُ، أَمِ الْحَيَاةُ، أَمِ الْمَوْتُ، أَمِ الأَشْيَاءُ الْحَاضِرَةُ، أَمِ الْمُسْتَقْبِلَةُ. كُلُّ شَيْءٍ لَكُمْ.

23 وَأَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَلِلْمَسِيحِ، وَالْمَسِيحُ للهِ.

قرائة الإنجيل : مرقس 6 : 4 – 13

4 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «لَيْسَ نَبِيٌّ بِلاَ كَرَامَةٍ إِلاَّ فِي وَطَنِهِ وَبَيْنَ أَقْرِبَائِهِ وَفِي بَيْتِهِ».

5 وَلَمْ يَقْدِرْ أَنْ يَصْنَعَ هُنَاكَ وَلاَ قُوَّةً وَاحِدَةً، غَيْرَ أَنَّهُ وَضَعَ يَدَيْهِ عَلَى مَرْضَى قَلِيلِينَ فَشَفَاهُمْ.

6 وَتَعَجَّبَ مِنْ عَدَمِ إِيمَانِهِمْ. وَصَارَ يَطُوفُ الْقُرَى الْمُحِيطَةَ يُعَلِّمُ.

7 وَدَعَا الاثْنَيْ عَشَرَ وَابْتَدَأَ يُرْسِلُهُمُ اثْنَيْنِ اثْنَيْنِ، وَأَعْطَاهُمْ سُلْطَانًا عَلَى الأَرْوَاحِ النَّجِسَةِ،

8 وَأَوْصَاهُمْ أَنْ لاَ يَحْمِلُوا شَيْئًا لِلطَّرِيقِ غَيْرَ عَصًا فَقَطْ، لاَ مِزْوَدًا وَلاَ خُبْزًا وَلاَ نُحَاسًا فِي الْمِنْطَقَةِ.

9 بَلْ يَكُونُوا مَشْدُودِينَ بِنِعَال، وَلاَ يَلْبَسُوا ثَوْبَيْنِ.

10 وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «حَيْثُمَا دَخَلْتُمْ بَيْتًا فَأَقِيمُوا فِيهِ حَتَّى تَخْرُجُوا مِنْ هُنَاكَ.

11 وَكُلُّ مَنْ لاَ يَقْبَلُكُمْ وَلاَ يَسْمَعُ لَكُمْ، فَاخْرُجُوا مِنْ هُنَاكَ وَانْفُضُوا التُّرَابَ الَّذِي تَحْتَ أَرْجُلِكُمْ شَهَادَةً عَلَيْهِمْ. اَلْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: سَتَكُونُ لأَرْضِ سَدُومَ وَعَمُورَةَ يَوْمَ الدِّينِ حَالَةٌ أَكْثَرُ احْتِمَالاً مِمَّا لِتِلْكَ الْمَدِينَةِ».

12 فَخَرَجُوا وَصَارُوا يَكْرِزُونَ أَنْ يَتُوبُوا.

13 وَأَخْرَجُوا شَيَاطِينَ كَثِيرَةً، وَدَهَنُوا بِزَيْتٍ مَرْضَى كَثِيرِينَ فَشَفَوْهُمْ.

First of the Middle Sundays of Easter

1st Reading : Acts 19: 1-12

1 And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples 

2 he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” 

3 And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.” 

4 Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.” 

5When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 

6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. 

7 Now the men were about twelve in all. 

8 And he went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading concerning the things of the kingdom of God. 

9 But when some were hardened and did not believe, but spoke evil of the Way before the multitude, he departed from them and withdrew the disciples, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus. 

10 And this continued for two years, so that all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks. 

11 Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, 

12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.

2nd.  Reading: Corinthians 3:1-11

1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 

2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 

3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? 

4 For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal? 

5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one?

6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 

7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. 

8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 

9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. 

10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 

11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

 Gospel: Matthew 10:34- 11:1

34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 

35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 

36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ 

37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 

38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 

39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. 

40 “He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. 

41 He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 

42 And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.”

1 Now it came to pass, when Jesus finished commanding His twelve disciples, that He departed from there to teach and to preach in their cities.

الأحد الأول من الآحاد المتوسطة للقيامة

القرائة الأولى : أعمال   9 : 1 – 12

 1 فَحَدَثَ فِيمَا كَانَ أَبُلُّوسُ فِي كُورِنْثُوسَ، أَنَّ بُولُسَ بَعْدَ مَا اجْتَازَ فِي النَّوَاحِي الْعَالِيَةِ جَاءَ إِلَى أَفَسُسَ. فَإِذْ وَجَدَ تَلاَمِيذَ

2 قَالَ لَهُمْ: «هَلْ قَبِلْتُمُ الرُّوحَ الْقُدُسَ لَمَّا آمَنْتُمْ؟» قَالُوا لَهُ: «وَلاَ سَمِعْنَا أَنَّهُ يُوجَدُ الرُّوحُ الْقُدُسُ».

3 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «فَبِمَاذَا اعْتَمَدْتُمْ؟» فَقَالُوا: «بِمَعْمُودِيَّةِ يُوحَنَّا».

4 فَقَالَ بُولُسُ: «إِنَّ يُوحَنَّا عَمَّدَ بِمَعْمُودِيَّةِ التَّوْبَةِ، قَائِلاً لِلشَّعْبِ أَنْ يُؤْمِنُوا بِالَّذِي يَأْتِي بَعْدَهُ، أَيْ بِالْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ».

5 فَلَمَّا سَمِعُوا اعْتَمَدُوا بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ.

6 وَلَمَّا وَضَعَ بُولُسُ يَدَيْهِ عَلَيْهِمْ حَلَّ الرُّوحُ الْقُدُسُ عَلَيْهِمْ، فَطَفِقُوا يَتَكَلَّمُونَ بِلُغَاتٍ وَيَتَنَبَّأُونَ.

7 وَكَانَ جَمِيعُ الرِّجَالِ نَحْوَ اثْنَيْ عَشَرَ.

8 ثُمَّ دَخَلَ الْمَجْمَعَ، وَكَانَ يُجَاهِرُ مُدَّةَ ثَلاَثَةِ أَشْهُرٍ مُحَاجًّا وَمُقْنِعًا فِي مَا يَخْتَصُّ بِمَلَكُوتِ اللهِ.

9 وَلَمَّا كَانَ قَوْمٌ يَتَقَسَّوْنَ وَلاَ يَقْنَعُونَ، شَاتِمِينَ الطَّرِيقَ أَمَامَ الْجُمْهُورِ، اعْتَزَلَ عَنْهُمْ وَأَفْرَزَ التَّلاَمِيذَ، مُحَاجًّا كُلَّ يَوْمٍ فِي مَدْرَسَةِ إِنْسَانٍ اسْمُهُ تِيرَانُّسُ.

10 وَكَانَ ذلِكَ مُدَّةَ سَنَتَيْنِ، حَتَّى سَمِعَ كَلِمَةَ الرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ جَمِيعُ السَّاكِنِينَ فِي أَسِيَّا، مِنْ يَهُودٍ وَيُونَانِيِّينَ.

11 وَكَانَ اللهُ يَصْنَعُ عَلَى يَدَيْ بُولُسَ قُوَّاتٍ غَيْرَ الْمُعْتَادَةِ،

12 حَتَّى كَانَ يُؤْتَى عَنْ جَسَدِهِ بِمَنَادِيلَ أَوْ مَآزِرَ إِلَى الْمَرْضَى، فَتَزُولُ عَنْهُمُ الأَمْرَاضُ، وَتَخْرُجُ الأَرْوَاحُ الشِّرِّيرَةُ مِنْهُمْ.

 القرائة الثانية : 1 كورونثوس 3: 1 -11

1 وَأَنَا أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ لَمْ أَسْتَطِعْ أَنْ أُكَلِّمَكُمْ كَرُوحِيِّينَ، بَلْ كَجَسَدِيِّينَ كَأَطْفَال فِي الْمَسِيحِ،

2 سَقَيْتُكُمْ لَبَنًا لاَ طَعَامًا، لأَنَّكُمْ لَمْ تَكُونُوا بَعْدُ تَسْتَطِيعُونَ، بَلِ الآنَ أَيْضًا لاَ تَسْتَطِيعُونَ،

3 لأَنَّكُمْ بَعْدُ جَسَدِيُّونَ. فَإِنَّهُ إِذْ فِيكُمْ حَسَدٌ وَخِصَامٌ وَانْشِقَاقٌ، أَلَسْتُمْ جَسَدِيِّينَ وَتَسْلُكُونَ بِحَسَبِ الْبَشَرِ؟

4 لأَنَّهُ مَتَى قَالَ وَاحِدٌ: «أَنَا لِبُولُسَ» وَآخَرُ: «أَنَا لأَبُلُّوسَ» أَفَلَسْتُمْ جَسَدِيِّينَ؟

5 فَمَنْ هُوَ بُولُسُ؟ وَمَنْ هُوَ أَبُلُّوسُ؟ بَلْ خَادِمَانِ آمَنْتُمْ بِوَاسِطَتِهِمَا، وَكَمَا أَعْطَى الرَّبُّ لِكُلِّ وَاحِدٍ:

6 أَنَا غَرَسْتُ وَأَبُلُّوسُ سَقَى، لكِنَّ اللهَ كَانَ يُنْمِي.

7 إِذًا لَيْسَ الْغَارِسُ شَيْئًا وَلاَ السَّاقِي، بَلِ اللهُ الَّذِي يُنْمِي.

8 وَالْغَارِسُ وَالسَّاقِي هُمَا وَاحِدٌ، وَلكِنَّ كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ سَيَأْخُذُ أُجْرَتَهُ بِحَسَبِ تَعَبِهِ.

9 فَإِنَّنَا نَحْنُ عَامِلاَنِ مَعَ اللهِ، وَأَنْتُمْ فَلاَحَةُ اللهِ، بِنَاءُ اللهِ.

10 حَسَبَ نِعْمَةِ اللهِ الْمُعْطَاةِ لِي كَبَنَّاءٍ حَكِيمٍ قَدْ وَضَعْتُ أَسَاسًا، وَآخَرُ يَبْنِي عَلَيْهِ. وَلكِنْ فَلْيَنْظُرْ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ كَيْفَ يَبْنِي عَلَيْهِ.

11 فَإِنَّهُ لاَ يَسْتَطِيعُ أَحَدٌ أَنْ يَضَعَ أَسَاسًا آخَرَ غَيْرَ الَّذِي وُضِعَ، الَّذِي هُوَ يَسُوعُ الْمَسِيحُ.

قرائة الإنجيل : متى : 10: 34 – 11: 1

34 «لاَ تَظُنُّوا أَنِّي جِئْتُ لأُلْقِيَ سَلاَمًا عَلَى الأَرْضِ. مَا جِئْتُ لأُلْقِيَ سَلاَمًا بَلْ سَيْفًا.

35 فَإِنِّي جِئْتُ لأُفَرِّقَ الإِنْسَانَ ضِدَّ أَبِيهِ، وَالابْنَةَ ضِدَّ أُمِّهَا، وَالْكَنَّةَ ضِدَّ حَمَاتِهَا.

36 وَأَعْدَاءُ الإِنْسَانِ أَهْلُ بَيْتِهِ.

37 مَنْ أَحَبَّ أَبًا أَوْ أُمًّا أَكْثَرَ مِنِّي فَلاَ يَسْتَحِقُّنِي، وَمَنْ أَحَبَّ ابْنًا أَوِ ابْنَةً أَكْثَرَ مِنِّي فَلاَ يَسْتَحِقُّنِي،

38 وَمَنْ لاَ يَأْخُذُ صَلِيبَهُ وَيَتْبَعُني فَلاَ يَسْتَحِقُّنِي.

39 مَنْ وَجَدَ حَيَاتَهُ يُضِيعُهَا، وَمَنْ أَضَاعَ حَيَاتَهُ مِنْ أَجْلِي يَجِدُهَا.

40 مَنْ يَقْبَلُكُمْ يَقْبَلُنِي، وَمَنْ يَقْبَلُني يَقْبَلُ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي.

41 مَنْ يَقْبَلُ نَبِيًّا بِاسْمِ نَبِيٍّ فَأَجْرَ نَبِيٍّ يَأْخُذُ، وَمَنْ يَقْبَلُ بَارًّا بِاسْمِ بَارّ فَأَجْرَ بَارّ يَأْخُذُ،

42 وَمَنْ سَقَى أَحَدَ هؤُلاَءِ الصِّغَارِ كَأْسَ مَاءٍ بَارِدٍ فَقَطْ بِاسْمِ تِلْمِيذٍ، فَالْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ إِنَّهُ لاَ يُضِيعُ أَجْرَهُ».

1 وَلَمَّا أَكْمَلَ يَسُوعُ أَمْرَهُ لِتَلاَمِيذِهِ الاثْنَيْ عَشَرَ، انْصَرَفَ مِنْ هُنَاكَ لِيُعَلِّمَ وَيَكْرِزَ فِي مُدُنِهِمْ.
