25种激怒孩子的举动

Anger is a unique emotion and is one of the most referenced emotions in the Bible. It can motivate to appropriate actions and causes (Mark 3:5) or diminish our effectiveness as a believer (Prov. 14:29). The Lord God expressed His wrath many times over people that chose idolatry and hardened their hearts towards His commands. Vine’s Dictionary provides this insight: anger is a natural impulse, desire, or disposition, and is seen as the strongest of all passions. There is little doubt as to why the New Testament instructs believers multiple times to “put off and put away” the destructive side of this emotion (Eph. 4:31, Col. 3:8).

As parents striving to raise our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord, we are provided many opportunities to teach, model, and instruct our children in this principle. One of our goals is to help our children grow from self-centered and emotionally driven to a Christ-like example that incorporates a biblical thought and reasoning process. How sad the first set of parents, Adam and Eve, must have been when their own flesh and blood could not manage this emotion (Gen. 4:5-8). In one day they lost two children: one to death, the other to exile.

Solomon reminds us that there is nothing new “under the sun” (Eccl. 1:14), and therefore parents need to be proactive in the everyday task of helping their children learn the wisdom of how to experience the emotion (be ye angry), and yet make good choices (sin not). The context of this article will encourage parents to “examine themselves” first in how they can avoid “provoking their children to anger” (Col. 3:21) . The author, Lou Priolo, outlines in his book on this topic, “The Heart of Anger”, 25 ways that parents can unknowingly create anger and frustration in their children. A summary of those ways is as follows:

1. The Lack of Marital Harmony:婚姻不和睦

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (Gen. 2:24) Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled. (Heb. 12:15)

It is easy to understand why this is the first one mentioned. A painfully accurate overview is evident by the statement: “perhaps the greatest provocation of anger in children is parents who do not live with each other in the harmony that the Scriptures prescribe”.1 As Gen. 2:24 lays the foundation, that a husband and wife who does not develop the “one flesh” intimacy as intended by God; and over time, various other problems will develop. Additional correlations between lack of marital harmony and angry children are seen in the effect that bitterness has on the human spirit. As children observe the resentment that results from their parents’ lack of harmony, they can be more susceptible to acquiring those bitter thoughts, motives, attitudes, and actions that have been modeled to them.

2. Establishing and Maintaining a Child-Centered Home:家庭以孩子为中心

The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. (Prov. 29:15)

If parents do not know how to set up a Christ-Centered Home (which is defined as: each member understanding his/her biblical role in the family and is committed to place Christ above self), then the home is likely to be Child-Centered. It is a foundational principle that the husband and wife work at being closer to each other than to the child. If that does not occur, the child may view himself as equal and will tend to become angry when his desires do not get placed on equal status as the needs and desires of the parent.

3. Modeling Sinful Anger:不合宜发怒的榜样

Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul. (Prov. 22:24-25)

When parents model sinful anger, the child may accidently be taught the only way to solve problems is to win. There are many “teachable moments” to be had with our children in helping them observe how sinfully expressed anger by others can bring many consequences.

4. Habitually Disciplining While Angry:经常在怒气中管教

O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. (Ps. 38:1) Wherefore my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. (James 1:19-20)

When a parent is angry, it is easy to over-discipline. That anger may be perceived as a personal attack and the discipline seen as vindictive (revengeful) instead of corrective. Stress from work, finances, marital and family struggles can all add to the parent’s frustration that is then passed to the child.

5. Scolding:漫骂

Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. (Eph. 4:29)

By definition, scolding is to rebuke someone angrily; using harsh language especially when complaining or finding fault. While scolding may make the speaker feel better, it does little to biblically “train or instruct”.

6. Being Inconsistent with Discipline:管教不一致

When I therefore was thus minded did I use lightness? Or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea and nay nay? But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay. (2 Cor. 1:17- 18) Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. (Eccl. 8:11)

There are two common types of inconsistent discipline. One type is utilizing different parental standards of discipline. In other words, dad believes a certain behavior is wrong and mom sees nothing wrong with it or vise versa. The second is in how parents are daily inconsistent on what is punishable behavior, and/or how severe the punishment will be. Both types can bring undue frustration to children.

7. Having Double Standards:双重标准

These things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me do: and the God of peace shall be with you. (Phil. 4:9)

 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. (Jam 1:8)

A parent who uses the bible to teach and instruct their child in righteousness, but is not willing to practice that same standard in their own life, is fitting the definition of a hypocrite. A hypocritical home will often provoke a child. “Do as I say and not as I do” may work temporarily in an employer/employee relationship, but it has no application for a believing parent .

8. Being Legalistic:律法主义

This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Matt. 15:8-9)

In detailing this section, the author states, “God has given each set of Christian parents the responsibility to develop from Scripture a biblically based economy or “law of the house” for their children to abide by. This collection of house expectations or rules contains two basic sections: God’s Law (biblically directed rules like the 10 commandments) and Parent’s Law (biblically derived rules like bedtime, chores, food choices, etc.)” 2 The particular type of legalism that can provoke anger is when parents present their Parent’s Law as unchangeable and can never be appealed. As children mature and establish trust and respect, there should be an opportunity for them to exercise appropriate expanding of responsibility and that trust. A rigid, one size rule that must fit all the kids all the time may lead to unnecessary provoking.

9: Not Admitting You’re Wrong and Not Asking For Forgiveness:不承认错误不寻求饶恕

Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. (Matt. 5:23-24) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one to another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16)

Due to human nature, parents will make mistakes. However, the failure to acknowledge these mistakes committed against children often discourages the children from practicing open and appropriate communication. When children perceive such insensitivity (and maybe even pride) in the parents, they may wrongly conclude that it’s no use trying to talk to them about the what happened. It’s easy to learn that a wrong decision needs no apology if you’re in the position of power.

10. Constantly Finding Fault:经常找孩子的错误

Also against his (Elihu) three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.  (Job 32:3)

Elihu was frustrated for the condemning statements without accurately pinpointing what had been done wrong. This area is not about diminishing the parent’s responsibility to point out sinful behavior and character deficiencies in the child. It is rather the continuous critical, condemning, accusing, and judgmental attitude that can be mistaken as providing “reproof”. For a child that grows up in that environment, he can often begin to believe that his parents are never or rarely pleased with him.

11. Parents Reversing God-Given Roles:丈夫妻子角色颠倒

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it. (Eph. 5:22-23,24)

Consequences that tend to promote frustration are unavoidable when God’s order in the home is violated. Wives can become embittered over husbands not managing their homes biblically as the head and leadership role requires. Husbands grow in frustration as their wives either undermine their parenting efforts or have to compensate for their lack of parenting initiative and participation. Children are often left confused and uncertain about parent’s behavior and without needed modeling for future generations.

12. Not Listening to Your Child’s Opinion or Taking His or Her “Side of the Story” Seriously:不听孩子的想法或不看重孩子想说的

He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him. (Prov. 18:13) He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him. (Prov. 18:17)

Children can be difficult to fill with truth unless they are emptied of their self and those issues that worry and concern them. A parent doesn’t always need to agree with their child’s reasoning, conclusions and opinions, but should focus on how to lead them to the truth. That path to truth is strengthened when parents take the time to understand their child’s perspective. To gain that perspective, parents need to have conversations with their children and display the skill of listening to comprehend and not just to respond.

13. Comparing Them to Others:和别人比较

For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. (2 Cor. 10:12)

God blesses every child with unique gifts and talents. It is important for a child to learn at an early age “not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith” (Rom. 12:3). Children that live in the constant shadow of another sibling or child will tend to over-focus or over-promote their accomplishments or lose the sound judgment of appreciating their God-given worth.

14. Not Making Time “Just to Talk”:没花时间和孩子谈天

Wherefore my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. (Jam. 1:19) A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak: (Eccl. 3:7)

Relationships are the key to “training up your child” and they are impossible to build without communication. Moms and dads are under constant pressure from the requirements (and pleasures) of life that can keep them from spending enough time engaging in the “sharing and caring” process with their child. Parents that are overwhelmed with those pressures, rarely establish those strong and significant parent/child relationships.

15. Not Praising or Encouraging Your Child:没有赞扬或鼓励孩子

I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ. (1 Cor. 1:4)

Building an accurate self-perception in a child involves them clearly understanding not only what is wrong and needs to be corrected, but also of what is right and pleasing to God. It is too easy for parents to focus only on the wrong, and consequently, their children tend to evaluate themselves inaccurately. Their self-perceptions become distorted instead of sober (Rom. 12:3) and true (Phil. 4:8). Generic and inflated praise diminishes this self-perception, while the opposite, specific and targeted appreciate helps build a “sober and true” self- perception.

16. Failing to Keep Your Promises:没有信守承诺

But let your communication be, Yea yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. (Matt. 5:37) Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds. (Col. 3:9)

Most moms and dads have every intention of honoring their commitments to their children. When promises and commitments are not consistently kept (regardless of reason) and no attempt is made to modify the promise or seek forgiveness from the child for breaking that promise, the child’s disappointment can turn into anger. If the string of broken promises continue to grow, so will the child’s view that his parents are undependable, unreliable, and possibly even deceitful.

17. Chastening in Front of Others:在别人面前惩诫孩子

Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. (Matt. 18:15)

This principle presented in Matthew works well in the church family and is also sound practice for individuals within their family unit. The goal of chastening is to prevent a sinful action from becoming a sinful habit. If a child is acting sinfully and inappropriate in the presence of his peers and others, then he may in certain cases be verbally rebuked in their presence. However, if the misbehavior is not public, the discipline process should be handled privately and securely between child and parent.

18. Not Allowing Enough Freedom:没有给予足够的自由

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated (reasonable). (Jam. 3:17a) For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. (Luke 12:48b)

Children should be taught that freedom in not a right, but a privilege than can be earned by demonstrating their faithfulness to mom and dad’s expectations. That faithfulness involves demonstrating to God and parents that the child can be trusted with increased freedom on at least two things: the successful fulfillment of specific responsibilities and the successive competence to make biblically wise decisions. 3

Though some parents may struggle with over-protectiveness or insecurity, their children may often become exasperated, discourage, and even rebellious if not provided with trust-building and freedom-growing opportunities.

19: Allowing Too Much Freedom:给予太多的自由

The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. (Prov. 29:15) Now I say, that the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed to the father. (Gal. 4:1-2)

When children are allowed to (1) practice sinful behavior, or (2) indulge in non-sinful activities that are in excess of what their maturity and responsibility levels can process, or (3) live an undisciplined life that allows them to receive what they demand, other problems often develop4. Children that grow up in homes that allow too much freedom and not enough discipline often perceive that they are not loved by their parents.

20: Mocking Your Child:拿孩子的弱点开玩笑

Are there not mockers with me? And doth not mine eye continue in their provocation? (Job 17:1-2) And the Lord said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Have not I the Lord? (Ex. 4:11)

The many silly actions and awkward behaviors of kids will often produce moments that a parent can acknowledge them with a teasing, making fun, or mimicking response. A lighthearted and spontaneous moment is one of the joys of parenting, but for the child’s sake, parents should never respond consistently with a ridiculing or mocking attitude. Parents should especially be sensitive to the areas of their child’s inadequacies about which the child can do very little. Some general examples include intelligence, athletic abilities, physical features, and motor coordination.

21: Abusing Them Physically:身体上虐待

Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous: (1Tim.3:3) And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam’s anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff. (Num. 22:27)

As parents model being the “bishops” of their home (I Tim. 3:2), there are great benefits in exercising patience and avoiding the “striker” (brawling or bullying) mode of responding. There is also wisdom in not repeating Balaam’s reactionary approach to disciplining: (1) he had not collected all the relevant information, (2) he responded out of being embarrassed or unfulfilled expectations, (3) he was consumed with anger and out of control.

22: Ridiculing or Name Calling:奚落嘲笑孩子

Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. (Eph. 4:29)

Some behavior categories need to be named. God used names to identify those who were living in an unhealthy sin. Some of those names included: slothful, foolish, double-minded, deceitful, self-centered, and idolatrous. Utilizing earthly insults such as idiot, stupid, moron, lazy, etc. don’t provide a biblical corrective direction. As a tool, the “name” (and only if such behavior is repeatedly portrayed) can serve to motivate a child to change. As a punitive weapon, the repetitive use of the insult only embarrasses, shames, or antagonizes the child.

23. Unrealistic Expectations:不切实际的期望

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (1 Cor. 13:11)

Parents should try and remember that the Bible acknowledges that children speak, think and reason differently from adults. This process takes time and occurs at varying rates depending on the child. Frustration for both child and parent is probable when parents impose standards that their children are developmentally incapable of performing.

24. Practicing Favoritism:偏爱

And he (elder son) answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: (Luke 15:29)

The prodigal’s father rightly rejoiced, but the brother wrongly perceived that his father was showing favoritism. The human nature can be a powerful “score keeper”. Since siblings are rarely carbon copies of each other, they should be treated as individuals. In contrast, the standards by which each child is evaluated and by which parents respond to each child, should be identical (a point that the older son failed to understand). Some children experience hurt and bitterness in homes where parents fail to communicate this standard and neglect to reassure their children through the ongoing evaluation process.

25. Child Training with World Methodologies Inconsistent with God’s Word:用世俗不合圣经的方式管教孩子

And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. (Eph. 6:4)

There are two ways being contrasted for fathers (parents) to “bring up” their children. Raising a child properly in the discipline and instruction of the Lord will not provoke them to anger, but jumping to each new parenting technique probably will. Parents without a biblically-built framework for creating structure and order in their home will find additional challenges and struggles with raising their children. This challenge will especially be magnified in the high-need, strong willed child.

Conclusion:

Those that are parents, or provide for the care and education of children, are indeed blessed with the heritage of the Lord (Ps. 127:3). Helping children learn how to discern and appropriately respond to anger is vital for healthy families and churches. An unresolved hurt and wounded spirit usually progresses down a path of destruction: from hurt to bitterness, then anger, then stubbornness and finally rebellion5.

While this article does not address specific skills for children to use in learning how to manage anger and frustration, it does provide an outline for strengthening parent’s awareness of possible trigger points in children. Some children’s personalities and temperaments are going to require additional help from mom and dad in learning these skills. Those efforts for children needing to learn the balance of emotions and actions are going to be well pleasing to God.

本期為大家提供了一些固定的禱告文,可以在日常禱告中使用。除了每日為兒女的救恩禱告之外,作者分了31個禱告主題,我們建議你可以每月按日期使用。這些固定的禱告詞可以視為一種示範,幫助你建立為兒女禱告的習慣。在持續按照這些主題為兒女禱告的時候,你需要查看附加的參考經文以及其他相關經文,根據實際狀況和經文的激勵,添加自己的禱告詞,或是添加新的禱告主題。

铁证待判(麦道卫著)

简介:

基督教可信吗?这种称耶稣基督为神的儿子的信仰具有理性的根据吗?
然而历世累代以来,无数的学者、学生及成人都可以异口同声地回答说:“是的!

麦道卫所著这本《铁证待判》一书也就为了要证明这一点。

麦氏在国际学园传道会工作多年,曾代表学园传道会分别在世界53个不同的国家和地区,539个校园中巡回布道,许多学生与教授均因他的讲词信心得到鼓励和帮助。以他个人所举行大大小小各式不同的聚会,课堂中辨论的经验,以及举办许多个人辅导课程的经历;再加上他自加州台伯特神学院(Talbot Theological Seminary)毕业时曾荣获最高荣誉的毕业学位,以及他个人在基督教信仰的历史证据所从事广泛的研究工作,我相信麦氏乃是最有资格为基督教可信性辩护的一个人。

圣经历史纵览

圣经由 66 卷书汇编而成。圣经分为旧约(英文缩写为 O.T) 新约 (英文缩写为 N.T) 两部分。旧约写于公元前数百年;新约是关于基督和他的早期门徒的。两约都包括三个主要部分:

旧约历史书: 从《创世记》到《以斯帖记》

旧约诗体书: 从《约伯记》到《所罗门的雅歌》

旧约先知书: 从《以赛亚书》到《玛拉基书》

               新约历史书: 从《马太福音》到《使徒行传》

               新约使徒书(信): 从《罗马书》到《犹大书》

               新约先知书:《启示录》

通过圣经历史书的概览,我们可以对圣经历史的全貌列出以下这样一个简明提纲。这个提纲可以帮 助你在阅读圣经时通过上下文的联系而得到更好的理解。(“约”和“约”是一回事–都是讲一种许诺和应许的协议。)

一、《创世记》: 在上帝所创造的、然而人类却反叛了的世界,神确立赐福的

  • 《创世记》中的主要事件
  1. 世界的创造
  2. 人类的堕落和犯罪
  3. 世界范围内的大洪水
  4. 民族/种族的 形成
  5. 上帝和亚伯拉罕的立约
  • 上帝和亚伯拉罕以及他的子孙立约,侧重于保证使他的名为大,迦南 (今以色列) 为应许之地,子孙繁多,和上帝的特殊关系,赐福给全地人民。
  • 亚伯拉罕之后,最重要的人物是以撒,然后是雅各(后改名以色列),以及以色列的十二个儿子,特别是约瑟。
  • 《创世记》用以色列的十二个儿子在埃及的特权地位作为结束。
  • 诗体作品《约伯记》的故事大约发生在《创世记》这个时期。
  • 这一时期包括数千年,从远古时代到公元前 1800 年 (亚伯拉罕诞生于公元前 2000 年)。

二、《出埃及记》、《利未记》、《民数记》和《申命记》: 和亚伯拉罕的子孙们一起,上帝开始为自己建立一个国度

  • 自从《创世记》结束以后,时间又过了数百年
  • 《出埃及记》用以色列的十二个儿子的数千名后裔在埃及为奴的生活作为开端
  • 摩西领导以色列人出埃及,上帝和他们立约,作为一个民众群体,要求他们服从上帝颁发的综合律 法(通常称为“旧约”)
  • 但是,以色列民反叛,出埃及的那一辈人,除了两个例外,都没有被准许进入上帝所应许给亚伯拉 罕子孙的土地。
  • 《申命记》用以色列的下一代准备进入应许之地迦南、清除当时居民(他们因为积重难返的软弱而 遭到上帝的审判)为结束。
  • 这段时间为 120 年,是摩西在世的时间 (出埃及的时间大约在公元前 1450 年左右)

三、《约书亚记》: 上帝新生的国家开始占据应许之地

  • 约书亚继承摩西并领导新的一代进入迦南地
  • 以色列人征服了迦南地的所有主要城市,十二个部族 (从以色列的十二个儿子的子孙所形成)都分得 一部分,共同生活在那里
  • 这段时间为 20 到 30 年 (征服迦南地的主要战斗花费了不到七年时间)

四、《士师记》和《路得记》: 上帝之国不久便陷入长期的背约和麻烦之中

  • 约书亚死后, 以色列人开始崇拜其它神,从道德到精神都走向崩溃
  • 以色列民族没能够彻底占领应许之地,并且不断面临异国和相邻部族的侵扰
  • 当以色列人最终呼求上帝把他们从侵扰中拯救出来的时候,一些士师成为领袖,他们把以色列人从敌对国家和部族的威胁中解脱出来
  • 士师们的个人生活往往反映出以色列人的精神状态,他们的行动经常表现为自私而且愚蠢
  • 士师时期总起来说是黑暗的。《路得记》就是这个时期一个信仰纯正妇女的见证
  • 士师时期持续了 300 多年

五、《撒母耳记上》、《撒母耳记下》:在确立了一个“大众”国王之后,上帝检选了一位献身于上帝的国王统治以色列,并和他立约

  • 为了回答人民需要一个君王的要求,上帝批准先知撒母耳膏立扫罗为以色列的第一个国王
  • 虽然强健、仪表堂堂,但是扫罗偏离真道,固执己见;因此,上帝指示撒母耳膏立牧羊娃大卫为新王
  • 直到扫罗死后数年,大卫才登上王位。他一登基,就确立耶路撒冷为首都;他统一了全国,并领导 以色列人民最终占领了所有的应许之地
  • 大卫一生中显示出性格和行为的前后不一;但是他献身于上帝,上帝也和他立约,保证大卫王的一个子孙将登上王位,而且他的王国将持续到永远
  • 诗体作品《诗篇》 (抒情诗集)中的大部分都是大卫王在这一时期写成的
  • 《撒母耳记·上》和《撒母耳记·下》中的事件涵盖了 100 多年的时间 (大约公元前 1000 年以前大卫王开始其统治)

六、《列王记上》、《列王记下》:由于以色列的后裔不断违背上帝的旨意,上帝惩罚甚至抛弃了以色列

  • 所罗门继承父亲大卫的王位,在耶路撒冷建立圣殿,用智慧领导以色列……但是,他娶了许多外邦 女子为妻,并最终开始崇拜其它神
  • 在他死后,以色列分裂成两个国家:
  • 南国“犹大”,包括耶路撒冷、圣殿、犹大和便雅悯的部族,统治者是大卫王的一个后裔
  • 北国“以色列”,包括其余的十个部落。因为多流血政变导致了这个王国数个朝代
  • 北国忽视了以利亚、以利沙等先知的预言性警告,最终亡国,被亚述人掳到亚述,从此再也没有返回故土
  • 犹大国在短期内回归上帝,但是北国覆灭后过了大约一百年,犹大重蹈覆辙。耶路撒冷被攻陷,犹 大国民被巴比伦军队掳到巴比伦
  • 先知耶利米预言犹大的被掳将是暂时的,因为上帝将让那些幸存的忠实的臣民回到应许之地 (他预 言一个新的、更好的约将要到来。)
  • 所罗门的诗体作品《箴言》、《传道书》和《雅歌》都是他在位期间的创作。从所罗门退位到被掳到巴比伦的数百年间,出现了一些传道的先知。除了最后六篇,所有的“先知书”都是关于这些先知
  • 《列王记上》和《列王记下》记载的事件持续了数百年 (耶路撒冷被巴比伦人劫掠发生在公元前 600 年后)

七、《历代志上》、《历代志下》:撒母耳记上》、《撒母耳记下》和《列王记上》、《列 王记下》所记载的事件的重述

八、《以斯拉记》、《尼希米记》和《以斯帖记》: 幸存的忠实的臣民回到应许之地

  • 时间延续:《以斯拉记》发生在耶路撒冷陷落后 70 年。正是先知耶利米所预言的时间阶段。(先知书 《耶利米哀歌》、《以西结书》和《但以理书》,都是在被掳到巴比伦这一期间写成的)。
  • 巴比伦被波斯人占领。波斯王赛鲁士允许犹太人回到犹大地
  • 在这一百年间,犹太人主要分为三组回归,先后由所罗巴伯、以斯拉和尼希米率领
  • 《以斯拉记》描述耶路撒冷圣殿是如何重建的;《尼希米记》描述了耶路撒冷的护城墙的重建; 《以斯帖记》表现以斯帖如何成为波斯皇后,以及她如何利用自己的影响解救她的犹太同胞
  • 重归故园的犹太人显示出对服从上帝的重要性的密切关注
  • 最后三部先知书,《哈该书》,《撒迦利亚书》和《玛拉基书》都写于这一时期
  • 这段时间延续了大约一百年。(旧约中最后一些事件发生在公元前 420 年前后)

九、两约之间:

犹太历史书通常参照伪经。这些史书描述两约之间四百多年的历史。它们表明犹太人再也没有重新回到崇拜偶像和其它神明的旧辙。它们继续保持着从政治和精神上得到拯救的愿望

十、《马太福音》、《马可福音》、《路加福音》和《约翰福音》: 上帝差遣耶稣作为全地的救世主

  • 从略为不同的角度,四福音书的作者们描述了耶稣在世上的生活历程……他的出生、事工、教导、 赦罪的新约、以及他的受难、死亡和复活
  • 就肉身而言他是亚伯拉罕和大卫的子孙,耶稣宣告他就是旧约中所预言的那位上帝要差遣的神圣救世主, 先在以色列、然后到全地,他要在全地建立上帝的国度
  • 耶稣的公开传道只有大约三年时间,而且只是在以色列境内的犹太人中间;但是他教导他的门徒传他所教训的,并且将福音传遍全地,直到世界的末了
  • 时间跨度:大约 33 年,正是耶稣道成肉身、在地上生活的时间(耶稣大约诞生于公元前 4 年)

十一、《使徒行传》: 上帝的救恩开始传遍全地

  • 圣灵降临在耶稣的门徒的身上。尽管敌对严重,耶稣的门徒仍然努力传播耶稣的福音,并且从耶路撒冷开始,然后在犹大地、撒玛利亚附近乃至通过其它地方进入亚洲、欧洲和非洲,迅速赢得更多的信徒
  • 当人们相信耶稣的时候,他们经历上帝和上帝的大能,生命发生奇妙的改变,从而导致了教会在整个罗马帝国的繁衍
  • 《使徒行传》的中心人物是彼得和保罗。彼得是耶稣最早的 12 门徒之一、早期教会的领袖人物; 保罗开始反对基督教、后来经历耶稣的大能,皈依基督,在非犹太人中间传播基督真谛
  • 所有的使徒书信都写于这个时期,或者稍后一段时间。这些书信是早期教会领袖对基督信徒的指导。(新约中的预言书–《启示录》,写于数十年之后,展望了未来世界审判和基督再来的异像。)
  • 《使徒行传》所表现的事件发生在公元 30 年到 62 之间。(这本书以保罗在罗马被捕结束,许多事情现仍在进行)

** 注意:当你读到不懂的部分,或者不知所以然,应该请教你认识对圣经很懂的人。记下心得和问题也是很有帮助的办法。要想进入更深的层次,最好参加查经班(如果你还没有参加的 话)

圣经纲要及阅读计划

许多人都想阅读并懂得圣经但是通常都会发生这样的事情一个人从第一页开始读起, 当读到第三或者第四卷书的时侯,就放弃了感到迷失、混乱或者迷惑。问题在于,圣经由 66 卷不同文学样式的书集合而成;每一部分的重要性只有通过认真的研究才能看出。此外, 如同一本教科书,每一部分都包含着重要的信息,但是读起来并不一定会立即感兴趣。令人鼓舞的是,圣经的许多部分可读性很强。

这个计划是针对以下部分的学习指南(根据作者的理解和观念):

  • 重要的
  • 比较容易懂的 (当按照顺序读的时侯)
  • 感兴趣的
  • 纵览圣经全貌

怎样安排阅读资料 ?

旧约和新约的阅读是按照年代顺序和主要事件的分组安排的。对于那些特别长的部分 (例如旧约中律法),只包括了一些典型的部分。尽管旧约中所发生的事件是在新约之前数百年写下来的,旧约和新约的阅读是交错进行的,为的是让你尽快进入新约部分,并帮助你比较和对比两约。

单独部分的长度大都在四个章节左右,通常都表现一个主题。弄懂这些部分,经常依赖于以前的部分。因此,我主张你们按照顺序阅读。

需要多少时间完成阅读?

取决于你的阅读速度和注意力的集中程度。每一个独立的部分大约需要 15 到 30 分钟。 这个计划包括大约 60 个部分。譬如说,如果你每天读一个新的部分,你大约需要两个月完成阅读;如果你每周读一个新的部分,你大约需要一年多一点时间完成。

我怎样从阅读中得到最大效益?

为了帮助阅读的顺利进行,经常参照圣经年代表,”圣经历史简明提纲”,或者其它圣经简明纲要。

尽管如此,圣经并不以仅是历史事件的记录。圣经声称要把认识上帝的知识给予我们,帮助我们了解自己,以及懂得如何和上帝建立关系,经历丰盛的生命。对于每个部分,可以问自己以下三个问题:

  1. 这一部分是如何讲述上帝(和基督)的?(他的特征,关注重点以及他的意图是什么)
  2. 这一部分是如何讲述的?(我们的特征,关注重点以及我们的动机是什么)
  3. 这一部分是如何讲述我的生命的?(我活得如何,我的,关注重点以及我的动机是什么)
