الرسالة

1 تيموثاوس 4: 9 – 15


يا إِخوَةُ، صادِقَةٌ هي الكَلِمَة وَجديرةٌ بِكُلِّ قبول. فَإِنَّا لهذا نَتعَبُ وَنُعيّر لِأَنَّا أَلقَينا رَجاءَنا على اللهِ الحَيّ الَّذي هُوَ مُخلِّص النَّاس أَجمعين، وَلا سِيَّما المُؤمنون. فَوَصِّ بِهذا وَعَلِّم به. لا يَستَهِنَّ أَحَدٌ بِفُتُوَّتِكَ، بَل كُنْ مِثالًا لِلمُؤمِنين في الكَلامِ والتَّصَرُّفِ وَالمَحبَّةِ والإِيمانِ وَالعَفاف. واظِب على القِراءَةِ إِلى حين قُدومي، وَعلى الوَعْظِ والتَّعْليم. وَلا تُهْمِلِ المَوهِبَةَ الَّتي فيكَ، الَّتي أُوتيتَها بِنُبُوءَةٍ بِوَضْعِ أَيدي الكَهَنَة. تَأَمَّل في ذلك وكُنْ عَليه عاكِفًا لِيَكونَ تَقَدُّمُكَ ظاهِرًا في كُلِّ شَيء


الإنجيل

لوقا 19: 1 – 10


في ذلكَ الزَّمان، فيما يَسوع مُجتاز في أَريحا، إِذا بِرَجُلٍ اسمُهُ زَكَّا كانَ رَئيسًا على العَشَّارينَ وكانَ غَنِيًّا. وَكانَ يَلتَمِس أَن يَرى يَسوع مَن هُوَ، فَلَمْ يَكُنْ يَستَطيع مِنَ الجَمعِ، لِأَنَّهُ كانَ قَصيرَ القامَة. فَتَقَدَّمَ مُسرِعًا وَصَعِدَ إِلى جُمَّيزَةٍ لِيَنظُرَهُ، لِأَنَّهُ كانَ مُزمِعًا أَن يَجتازَ بِها. فَلَمَّا انتَهى يَسوعُ إِلى المَوضِعِ، رَفَعَ طَرْفَهُ فَرَآهُ، فَقالَ لَهُ: ’يا زَكَّا، أَسرِعِ انزِل. فَاليَومَ يَنبَغي لي أَن أَمكُثَ في بَيتِكَ‘. فَأَسرَعَ وَنَزَلَ وَقَبِلَهُ فَرِحًا. فَلَمَّا رَأى الجَميعُ ذَلِكَ تَذَمَّروا قائِلين: ’إِنَّهُ دَخَلَ لِيَحِلَّ عِندَ رَجُلٍ خاطِئ‘. فَوَقَفَ زَكَّا وَقالَ لِيَسوع: ’ها أَنذا يا رَبّ، أُعطي المَساكينَ نِصفَ أَموالي، وَإِن كُنتُ قَد غَبَنتُ أَحَدًا في شَيءٍ أَرُدُّ أَربَعَةَ أَضعاف‘. فَقالَ لَهُ يَسوع: ’أَليَومَ قَد حَصَلَ الخَلاصُ لِهذا البَيتِ، لِأَنَّهُ هُوَ أَيضًا ابنُ إِبراهيم، لِأَنَّ ابنَ البَشَرِ إِنَّما أَتى لِيَطلُبَ وَيُخَلِّصَ ما قَد هَلَك‘


Lettre

1 Timothée 4: 9 – 15


C’est là une parole certaine et entièrement digne d’être reçue. Nous travaillons, en effet, et nous combattons, parce que nous mettons notre espérance dans le Dieu vivant, Qui est le Sauveur de tous les hommes, surtout des croyants. Déclare ces choses, et enseigne-les. Que personne ne méprise ta jeunesse; mais sois un modèle pour les fidèles, en parole, en conduite, en amour, en foi, en pureté. Jusqu’à ce que je vienne, applique-toi à la lecture, à l’exhortation, à l’enseignement. Ne néglige pas le don qui est en toi, et qui t’a été donné par prophétie avec l’imposition des mains de l’assemblée des anciens. Occupe-toi de ces choses, donne-toi tout entier à elles, afin que tes progrès soient évidents pour tous


Évangile

Luc 19: 1 – 10


Jésus, étant entré dans Jéricho, traversait la ville. Et voici, un homme riche, appelé Zachée, chef des publicains, cherchait à voir qui était Jésus; mais il ne pouvait y parvenir, à cause de la foule, car il était de petite taille. Il courut en avant, et monta sur un sycomore pour Le voir, parce qu’Il devait passer par là. Lorsque Jésus fut arrivé à cet endroit, Il leva les yeux et lui dit: ‘Zachée, hâte-toi de descendre; car il faut que Je demeure aujourd’hui dans ta maison.’ Zachée se hâta de descendre, et Le reçut avec joie. Voyant cela, tous murmuraient, et disaient: ‘Il est allé loger chez un homme pécheur.’ Mais Zachée, se tenant devant le Seigneur, Lui dit: ‘Voici, Seigneur, je donne aux pauvres la moitié de mes biens, et, si j’ai fait tort de quelque chose à quelqu’un, je lui rends le quadruple.’ Jésus lui dit: ‘Le salut est entré aujourd’hui dans cette maison, parce que celui-ci est aussi un fils d’Abraham. Car le Fils de l’Homme est venu chercher et sauver ce qui était perdu’


Letter

1 Timothy 4: 9 – 15


This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance. For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, Who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. These things command and teach. Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all


Gospel

Luke 19: 1 – 10


Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, ‘Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.’ So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, ‘He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.’ Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, ‘Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.’ And Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost’

1 ወደ ጢሞቴዎስ 4: 9 – 15


ይህ ቃል የታመነ ሁሉም እንዲቀበሉት የተገባ ነው፤ ይህን ለማግኘት እንደክማለንና፥ ስለዚህም እንሰደባለን፤ ይህም ሰውን ሁሉ ይልቁንም የሚያምኑትን በሚያድን በሕያው አምላክ ተስፋ ስለምናደርግ ነው። ይህን እዘዝና አስተምር። በቃልና በኑሮ በፍቅርም በእምነትም በንጽሕናም ለሚያምኑቱ ምሳሌ ሁን እንጂ፥ ማንም ታናሽነትህን አይናቀው። እስክመጣ ድረስ ለማንበብና ለመምከር ለማስተማርም ተጠንቀቅ። በትንቢት ከሽማግሌዎች እጅ መጫን ጋር የተሰጠህን፥ በአንተ ያለውን የጸጋ ስጦታ ቸል አትበል። ማደግህ በነገር ሁሉ እንዲገለጥ ይህን አስብ፥ ይህንም አዘውትር።


ወንጌል

የሉቃስ ወንጌል 19: 1 – 10


ወደ ኢያሪኮም ገብቶ ያልፍ ነበር። እነሆም ዘኬዎስ የሚባል ሰው፥ እርሱም የቀራጮች አለቃ ነበረ፥ ባለ ጠጋም ነበረ። ኢየሱስንም የትኛው እንደ ሆነ ሊያይ ይፈልግ ነበር፤ ቁመቱም አጭር ነበረና ስለ ሕዝቡ ብዛት አቃተው። በዚያችም መንገድ ያልፍ ዘንድ አለውና ያየው ዘንድ ወደ ፊት ሮጦ በአንድ ሾላ ላይ ወጣ። ኢየሱስም ወደዚያ ስፍራ በደረሰ ጊዜ፥ አሻቅቦ አየና። ዘኬዎስ ሆይ፥ ዛሬ በቤትህ እውል ዘንድ ይገባኛልና ፈጥነህ ውረድ አለው። ፈጥኖም ወረደ በደስታም ተቀበለው። ሁሉም አይተው። ከኃጢአተኛ ሰው ጋር ሊውል ገባ ብለው አንጐራጐሩ። ዘኬዎስ ግን ቆሞ ጌታን። ጌታ ሆይ፥ ካለኝ ሁሉ እኵሌታውን ለድሆች እሰጣለሁ፤ ማንንም በሐሰት ከስሼ እንደ ሆንሁ አራት እጥፍ እመልሳለሁ አለው። ኢየሱስም። እርሱ ደግሞ የአብርሃም ልጅ ነውና ዛሬ ለዚህ ቤት መዳን ሆኖለታል፤ የሰው ልጅ የጠፋውን ሊፈልግና ሊያድን መጥቶአለና አለው።
