馬爾谷所載主耶穌基督的受難始末 14:1-15:47

(他們設法用詭計捉拿耶穌,把他殺害。)
敘述:逾越節和無酵節的前兩天,司祭長和經師設法用詭計捉拿耶穌,把他殺害;他們說:群眾:「不要在慶節內,怕民間發生暴動。」
(她提前傅抹了我的身體,是為安葬之事。)
敘述:當耶穌在伯達尼痳瘋病人西滿家裡,正坐席的時候,來了一個女人,拿著一玉瓶珍貴的純「納爾多」香液。
她打破玉瓶,把香液倒在耶穌頭上。有些人頗不滿意,就彼此說:
群眾:「為什麼要這樣浪費香液?這香液原可以賣三百多塊銀錢,施捨給窮人!」
敘述:他們對那女人很生氣。耶穌卻說:
耶穌:「由她吧!你們為什麼叫她難受呢?她在我身上做了一件好事,因為你們常有窮人同你們在一起,你們幾時願意,都可以給他們行善;但是我,你們卻不常有。她已做了她能做的:提前傅抹了我的身體,是為安葬之事。
「我實在告訴你們:將來福音無論傳到全世界什麼地方,必要傳述她所做的事,來紀念她。」
(他們答應給猶達斯銀錢)
敘述:於是,那十二人之一,猶達斯依斯加略,去見司祭長,要把耶穌交給他們。他們聽了以後,不勝欣喜,答應給他銀錢;他就尋找機會,將耶穌交出。
(我同我的門徒,吃逾越節晚餐的客廳在那裡?)
敘述:無酵節的第一天,即宰殺逾越節羔羊的那一天,門徒對耶穌說:
群眾:「你願意我們到那裡,給你預備吃逾越節晚餐?」
敘述:耶穌就打發兩個門徒,對他們說:
耶穌:「你們往城裡去,必有一個拿著水罐的人,迎面而來,你們就跟著他走;他無論進入那裡,你們就對那家主說:師父問:我同我的門徒,吃逾越節晚餐的客廳在那裡?他必指給你們一間舖設好的寬大樓廳,你們就在那裡,為我們預備吧!」
敘述:門徒去了,來到城裡,所遇見的,正如耶穌給他們所說的;他們就預備了逾越節晚餐。
(你們中有一個,與我同席的,要負賣我。)
敘述:到了晚上,耶穌同那十二人來了。他們坐下吃飯時,耶穌說:
耶穌:「我實在告訴你們:你們中有一個,與我同席的,要負賣我。」
敘述:門徒就都憂悶起來,一個一個的問耶穌說:
群眾:「難道是我嗎?」
敘述:耶穌對他們說:
耶穌:「是十二人中的一個,同我一起在盤子裡蘸手的那個。人子固然要按照指著他所寫的而去,但是負賣人子的那人,是有禍的!那人若沒有生,為他更好。」
(這是我的身體。這是我的血;盟約之血。)
敘述:他們正吃的時候,耶穌拿起餅來,祝福了,擘開,遞給他們說:
耶穌:「你們拿去吃吧!這是我的身體。」
敘述:耶穌又拿起杯來,祝謝了,遞給他們,他們都從杯中喝了。耶穌對他們說:
耶穌:「這是我的血,盟約的血,為大眾而傾流的。我實在告訴你們:我決不再喝這葡萄汁了,直到我在天主的國裡,喝新酒的那天。」
(雞叫兩遍以前,你要三次不認我。)
敘述:他們唱完聖詠,就出來,往橄欖山去。
耶穌對門徒說:
耶穌:「你們都要跌倒,因為有記載說:『我要打擊牧人,羊群就要四散。』但我復活後,要在你們以先,到加里肋亞去。」
敘述:伯多祿對耶穌說:
群眾:「即使眾人都要跌倒,我也不會。」
敘述:耶穌就向伯多祿說:
耶穌:「我實在告訴你:就在今天夜裡,雞叫兩遍以前,你要三次不認我。」
敘述:伯多祿更加激烈地說:
群眾:「即使我必須同你一起死,我也決不會不認你。」
敘述:眾人也都這樣說了。
(耶穌開始驚懼恐怖)
敘述:他們來到一個名叫革責瑪尼的莊園裡;耶穌對門徒說:
耶穌:「你們坐在這裡,等我去祈禱。」
敘述:耶穌於是帶了伯多祿、雅各伯和若望同去;耶穌開始驚懼恐怖,便對他們說:
耶穌:「我的心靈悲傷得要死;你們留在這裡,且要醒寤。」
敘述:耶穌往前走了不遠,就俯伏在地祈求,如果可能,使這時辰離他而去,說:
耶穌:「阿爸!父啊!一切為你都可能:請免去我這杯吧!但是,不要照我的意願,而要照你所願意的。」
敘述:耶穌回來,見他們睡著了,就對伯多祿說:
耶穌:「西滿!你睡覺嗎?你不能醒寤一個時辰嗎?你們醒寤祈禱吧!免陷於誘惑。心神固然切願,但肉身卻軟弱。」
敘述:耶穌又去祈禱,說了同樣的話。耶穌又回來,見他們仍是睡著,因為他們的眼睛沉重,也不知道要回答耶穌什麼。
耶穌第三次回來,對他們說:
耶穌:「你們還睡下去嗎?還休息嗎?夠了!時辰到了,看,人子就要被交付在罪人手裡。起來!我們去吧!看,那負賣我的,來了。」
(你們捉住他,小心帶走。)
敘述:耶穌還在說話的時候,那十二人之一的猶達斯,也就到了;同他一起的,還有帶著刀劍棍棒的群眾,是由司祭長、經師和長老派來的。那出賣耶穌的人,曾給他們一個暗號說:
群眾:「我口親誰,誰就是;你們捉住他,小心帶走。」
敘述:猶達斯一來,便立刻到耶穌面前說:
群眾:「辣彼!」
敘述:於是,猶達斯口親了耶穌。他們就向耶穌下手,捉住了他。
站在旁邊的人之中,有一個拔出劍來,砍了大司祭僕人一劍,削下他的一個耳朵。
耶穌開口對他們說:
耶穌:「你們帶著刀劍棍棒,出來捉拿我,如同對付強盜一樣;我天天在你們當中,在聖殿裡施教,你們卻沒有捉拿我;但這是為應驗經上的話。」
敘述:門徒都撇下耶穌,逃跑了。
那時,有一個少年人,赤身披著一塊麻布,跟隨耶穌。人們就抓住了那少年人;但他撇下麻布,赤身逃走了。
(你是默西亞,那應受讚頌者的兒子嗎?)
敘述:他們把耶穌帶到大司祭那裡,所有司祭長、長老和經師,也都聚集在那裡。
伯多祿遠遠的跟著耶穌,直到大司祭的庭院裡面,同差役們坐在一起,烤火取暖。
敘述:司祭長和全體公議會,尋找控告耶穌的證據,好把他處死,卻沒有找到。原來有許多人,捏造假證據控告耶穌,但那些證據,各不相符。有幾個人站起來,作假見證,控告耶穌說:
群眾:「我們曾聽他說過:我要拆毀這座用人手建造的聖殿,三天內,要另建一座非人手所造的。」
敘述:連他們這個證據,也不相符合。
於是,大司祭起來,站在中間,問耶穌說:
群眾:「這些人作證控告你的事,你什麼也不回答嗎?」
敘述:耶穌默不作聲,什麼也不回答。
大司祭又問耶穌說:
群眾:「你是默西亞,那應受讚頌者的兒子嗎?」
敘述:耶穌說:
耶穌:「我是,並且你們要看見人子,坐在大能者的右邊,乘著天上的雲彩降來。」
敘述:大司祭於是撕裂自己的衣服,說:
群眾:「何必還需要見證呢?你們都聽見這褻瀆的話了,你們看!該怎辦?」
敘述:眾人都判耶穌該死。有些人就開始向他吐唾沫,蒙住他的臉,用拳頭打他,對他說:
群眾:「你猜是誰吧!」
敘述:差役且用巴掌打他。
(我不認識你們說的這個人)
敘述:伯多祿在下邊庭院,來了一個大司祭的使女,看見伯多祿烤火,就注視他,說:
群眾:「你也是和那個納匝肋人耶穌一起的。」
敘述:伯多祿卻否認說:
群眾:「我不知道,也不明白你說什麼。」
敘述:伯多祿於是走出去,到了門廊,雞就叫了。
那使女看見伯多祿,就又對站在旁邊的人說:
群眾:「這人是和他們一起的。」
敘述:伯多祿又否認了。
過了一會兒,站在旁邊的人,又再對伯多祿說:
群眾:「你的確是和他們一起的,因為你也是個加里肋亞人。」
敘述:伯多祿就開始詛咒,並發誓說:
群眾:「我不認識你們說的這個人。」
敘述:立刻雞就叫了第二遍。
伯多祿於是想起耶穌對他所說的話:「雞叫兩遍以前,你要三次不認我。」就放聲大哭起來。
(你們願意我給你們釋放猶太人的君王嗎)
敘述:到了清晨,司祭長、長老及經師,和全體公議會,商討完畢,就把耶穌捆綁起來,解送給比拉多。比拉多問耶穌說:
群眾:「你是猶太人的君王嗎?」
敘述:耶穌回答說:
耶穌:「是你說的。」
敘述:司祭長控告耶穌許多事;比拉多又問耶穌說:
群眾:「你看,他們控告你這麼多的事,你什麼都不回答嗎?」
敘述:耶穌仍然沒有回答什麼,以致比拉多大為驚異。
每逢節日,總督慣常給民眾釋放一個他們所要求的囚犯。當時,有一個名叫巴辣巴的,他是與那些在暴動中殺人的暴徒,一同被囚的。群眾上去,要求按慣例給他們辦理。比拉多回答他們說:
群眾:「你們願意我給你們釋放猶太人的君王嗎?」
敘述:比拉多原知道司祭長是由於嫉妒,才把耶穌解送來的。但是,司祭長卻煽動群眾,寧要給他們釋放巴辣巴。比拉多又向他們說:
群眾:「那麼,對你們所稱的猶太人君王,我可怎麼辦呢?」
敘述:群眾又喊說:
群眾:「釘他在十字架上!」
敘述:比拉多對他們說:
群眾:「他做了什麼惡事?」
敘述:他們越發喊說:
群眾:「釘他在十字架上!」
敘述:比拉多願意滿足群眾,就給他們釋放了巴辣巴,把耶穌鞭打後,交給他們,釘在十字架上。
(編了一個茨冠,給他戴上。)
敘述:兵士把耶穌帶到庭院裡面,即總督府內,把全隊叫齊,給耶穌穿上紫紅袍,編了一個茨冠,給他戴上,開始向他致敬說:「猶太人的君王,萬歲!」然後用一根蘆葦,敲他的頭,向他吐唾沫,屈膝朝拜他。
他們戲弄了耶穌之後,就給他脫去紫紅袍,給他穿上他自己的衣服,然後帶他出去,把他釘在十字架上。
(他們把耶穌帶到哥耳哥達地方)
敘述:有一個基勒乃人西滿,是亞歷山大和魯富的父親,他從田間來,正路過那裡;他們就強迫他背耶穌的十字架。
他們將耶穌帶到哥耳哥達地方,解說「髑髏」的地方。
(他被列於叛逆者之中)
敘述:他們就拿沒藥調和的酒,給耶穌喝,耶穌卻沒有接受。
他們就將耶穌釘在十字架上,並把他的衣服分開,拈鬮,看誰得什麼。
他們把耶穌釘在十字架上時,正是第三時辰。他的罪狀牌上寫的是:「猶太人的君王。」
與耶穌一起,還釘了兩個強盜:一個在他右邊,一個在他左邊。【這就應驗了經上所說的:『他被列於叛逆者之中。』】
(他救了別人,卻不能救自己!)
敘述:路過的人都侮辱耶穌,搖著頭說:
群眾:「哇!你這拆毀聖殿,三天內重建起來的,你從十字架上下來,救你自己吧!」
敘述:同樣,司祭長與經師也譏笑他,彼此說:
群眾:「他救了別人,卻不能救自己!默西亞,以色列的君王!現在從十字架上下來吧,叫我們看了,好相信!」
敘述:連與他一起,釘在十字架上的人,也辱罵他。
(耶穌大喊一聲,就呼出了最後一口氣。)
敘述:到了第六時辰,遍地昏黑,直到第九時辰。在第九時辰,耶穌大聲呼號說:
耶穌:「厄羅依,厄羅依,肋瑪撒巴黑塔尼?」
敘述:意思是:
耶穌:「我的天主,我的天主,你為什麼捨棄了我?」
敘述:旁邊站著的人,有的聽見了,就說:
群眾:「看,他呼喚厄里亞呢!」
敘述:有一個人就跑過去,把海綿浸滿了醋,綁在蘆葦上,遞給他喝,說:
群眾:「等一等,我們看,是否厄里亞來將他卸下。」
敘述:耶穌大喊一聲,就呼出了最後一口氣。
跪下默禱片刻
敘述:聖所裡的帳幔,從上到下,分裂為二。
在對面站著的百夫長,看見耶穌這樣斷了氣,就說:群眾:「這人真是天主子!」
敘述:還有一些婦女從遠處觀望,其中有瑪利亞瑪達肋納,次雅各伯和若瑟的母親瑪利亞及撒羅默。她們當耶穌在加里肋亞時,就跟隨了他,服事他;還有其他許多與耶穌一同上耶路撒冷的婦女。
(滾來一塊石頭,堵住墳墓門口。)
敘述:到了傍晚,因為是預備日,就是安息日的前一天,來了一個阿黎瑪特雅人若瑟,他是一位顯貴的議員,也是期待天國的人。他大膽地進見比拉多,要求領取耶穌的遺體。比拉多驚異耶穌已經死了,於是叫百夫長來,問他耶穌是否已死。既從百夫長口中,得知了實情,就把屍體交給了若瑟。
若瑟買了殮布,把耶穌卸下來,用殮布裹好,把他安放在巖石中鑿成的墳墓裡;然後滾來一塊石頭,堵住墳墓門口。
那時,瑪利亞瑪達肋納和若瑟的母親瑪利亞,留心觀看安放耶穌的地方。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 14:1-15:47

1 It was now two days before the Passover and the feast of Unleavened Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how to arrest him by stealth, and kill him; 2 for they said, “Not during the feast, lest there be a tumult of the people.” 3 And while he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head. 4 But there were some who said to themselves indignantly, “Why was the ointment thus wasted? 5 For this ointment might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii, and given to the poor.” And they reproached her. 6 But Jesus said, “Let her alone; why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 7 For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you will, you can do good to them; but you will not always have me. 8 She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burying. 9 And truly, I say to you, wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her.” 10 Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went to the chief priests in order to betray him to them. 11 And when they heard it they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought an opportunity to betray him.
12 And on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrificed the passover lamb, his disciples said to him, “Where will you have us go and prepare for you to eat the passover?” 13 And he sent two of his disciples, and said to them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you; follow him, 14 and wherever he enters, say to the householder, `The Teacher says, Where is my guest room, where I am to eat the passover with my disciples?’ 15 And he will show you a large upper room furnished and ready; there prepare for us.” 16 And the disciples set out and went to the city, and found it as he had told them; and they prepared the passover. 17 And when it was evening he came with the twelve. 18 And as they were at table eating, Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me, one who is eating with me.” 19 They began to be sorrowful, and to say to him one after another, “Is it I?” 20 He said to them, “It is one of the twelve, one who is dipping bread into the dish with me. 21 For the Son of man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.”
22 And as they were eating, he took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” 23 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. 24 And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. 25 Truly, I say to you, I shall not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”
26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. 27 And Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away; for it is written, `I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.’ 28 But after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee.” 29 Peter said to him, “Even though they all fall away, I will not.” 30 And Jesus said to him, “Truly, I say to you, this very night, before the cock crows twice, you will deny me three times.” 31 But he said vehemently, “If I must die with you, I will not deny you.” And they all said the same. 32 And they went to a place which was called Gethsem’ane; and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I pray.” 33 And he took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be greatly distressed and troubled. 34 And he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch.” 35 And going a little farther, he fell on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. 36 And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible to thee; remove this cup from me; yet not what I will, but what thou wilt.” 37 And he came and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not watch one hour? 38 Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 39 And again he went away and prayed, saying the same words. 40 And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they did not know what to answer him. 41 And he came the third time, and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? It is enough; the hour has come; the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand.”
43 And immediately, while he was still speaking, Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44 Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “The one I shall kiss is the man; seize him and lead him away under guard.” 45 And when he came, he went up to him at once, and said, “Master!” And he kissed him. 46 And they laid hands on him and seized him. 47 But one of those who stood by drew his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his ear. 48 And Jesus said to them, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? 49 Day after day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me. But let the scriptures be fulfilled.” 50 And they all forsook him, and fled. 51 And a young man followed him, with nothing but a linen cloth about his body; and they seized him, 52 but he left the linen cloth and ran away naked.
53 And they led Jesus to the high priest; and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes were assembled. 54 And Peter had followed him at a distance, right into the courtyard of the high priest; and he was sitting with the guards, and warming himself at the fire. 55 Now the chief priests and the whole council sought testimony against Jesus to put him to death; but they found none. 56 For many bore false witness against him, and their witness did not agree. 57 And some stood up and bore false witness against him, saying, 58 “We heard him say, `I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and in three days I will build another, not made with hands.'” 59 Yet not even so did their testimony agree. 60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, “Have you no answer to make? What is it that these men testify against you?” 61 But he was silent and made no answer. Again the high priest asked him, “Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?” 62 And Jesus said, “I am; and you will see the Son of man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.” 63 And the high priest tore his garments, and said, “Why do we still need witnesses? 64 You have heard his blasphemy. What is your decision?” And they all condemned him as deserving death. 65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to strike him, saying to him, “Prophesy!” And the guards received him with blows.
66 And as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the maids of the high priest came; 67 and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him, and said, “You also were with the Nazarene, Jesus.” 68 But he denied it, saying, “I neither know nor understand what you mean.” And he went out into the gateway. 69 And the maid saw him, and began again to say to the bystanders, “This man is one of them.” 70 But again he denied it. And after a little while again the bystanders said to Peter, “Certainly you are one of them; for you are a Galilean.” 71 But he began to invoke a curse on himself and to swear, “I do not know this man of whom you speak.”72 And im mediately the cock crowed a second time. And Peter remembered how Jesus had said to him, “Before the cock crows twice, you will deny me three times.” And he broke down and wept.
1 And as soon as it was morning the chief priests, with the elders and scribes, and the whole council held a consultation; and they bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him to Pilate. 2 And Pilate asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” And he answered him, “You have said so.” 3 And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4 And Pilate again asked him, “Have you no answer to make? See how many charges they bring against you.” 5 But Jesus made no further answer, so that Pilate wondered. 6 Now at the feast he used to release for them one prisoner for whom they asked. 7 And among the rebels in prison, who had committed murder in the insurrection, there was a man called Barab’bas. 8 And the crowd came up and began to ask Pilate to do as he was wont to do for them. 9 And he answered them, “Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?” 10 For he perceived that it was out of envy that the chief priests had delivered him up.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have him release for them Barab’bas instead. 12 And Pilate again said to them, “Then what shall I do with the man whom you call the King of the Jews?” 13 And they cried out again, “Crucify him.” 14 And Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has he done?” But they shouted all the more, “Crucify him.” 15 So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released for them Barab’bas; and having scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified. 16 And the soldiers led him away inside the palace (that is, the praetorium); and they called together the whole battalion. 17 And they clothed him in a purple cloak, and plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on him. 18 And they began to salute him, “Hail, King of the Jews!” 19 And they struck his head with a reed, and spat upon him, and they knelt down in homage to him. 20 And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple cloak, and put his own clothes on him. And they led him out to crucify him.
21 And they compelled a passer-by, Simon of Cyre’ne, who was coming in from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry his cross. 22 And they brought him to the place called Gol’gotha (which means the place of a skull). 23 And they offered him wine mingled with myrrh; but he did not take it. 24 And they crucified him, and divided his garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide what each should take. 25 And it was the third hour, when they crucified him.
26 And the inscription of the charge against him read, “The King of the Jews.” 27 And with him they crucified two robbers, one on his right and one on his left. 29 And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads, and saying, “Aha! You who would destroy the temple and build it in three days, 30 save yourself, and come down from the cross!” 31 So also the chief priests mocked him to one another with the scribes, saying, “He saved others; he cannot save himself. 32 Let the Christ, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” Those who were crucified with him also reviled him.
33 And when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, “E’lo-i, E’lo-i, la’ma sabach-tha’ni?” which means, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” 35 And some of the bystanders hearing it said, “Behold, he is calling Eli’jah.” 36 And one ran and, filling a sponge full of vinegar, put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink, saying, “Wait, let us see whether Eli’jah will come to take him down.” 37 And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed his last. 38 And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. 39 And when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that he thus breathed his last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” 40 There were also women looking on from afar, among whom were Mary Mag’dalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salo’me, 41 who, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered to him; and also many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem.
42 And when evening had come, since it was the day of Preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathe’a, a respected member of the council, who was also himself looking for the kingdom of God, took courage and went to Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. 44 And Pilate wondered if he were already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him whether he was already dead. 45 And when he learned from the centurion that he was dead, he granted the body to Joseph. 46 And he bought a linen shroud, and taking him down, wrapped him in the linen shroud, and laid him in a tomb which had been hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. 47 Mary Mag’dalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where he was laid.

讀經一 依50:4-7   詠22
讀經二 斐2:6-11
主日福音  谷14:1-15:47

兩天後就是逾越節和無酵節,司祭長和經師設法要怎樣用詭計捉拿耶穌,而把他殺害,因為他們說:「不要在節慶內,怕民間發生暴動。」
當耶穌在伯達尼癩病人西滿家裡,正坐席的時候,來了一個女人,拿著一玉瓶珍貴的純「納爾多」香液。她打破玉瓶,就倒在耶穌頭上。有些人頗不滿意,就彼此說:「為什麼要這樣浪費香液?這香液原可以賣三百多塊銀錢,施捨給窮人!」他們對那女人很生氣。耶穌卻說:「由她罷!你們為什麼叫她難受?她在我身上做了一件善事,因為你們常有窮人同你們在一起,你們幾時願意,就能給他們行善;但是我,你們卻不常有。她已做了她能做的:提前傅抹了我的身體,是為安葬之事。我實在告訴你們:將來福音無論傳到全世界什麼地方,必要述說她所作的事,來紀念她。」於是,那十二人中之一,猶達斯依斯加略,去見司祭長,要把耶穌交與他們。他們聽了以後,不勝欣喜,許下給他銀錢;他就找尋良機,將耶穌交出。
無酵節的第一天,即宰殺逾越節羔羊的那一天,門徒對耶穌說:「你願我們往哪裡去,給你預備吃逾越節晚餐?」耶穌就打發兩個門徒,對他們說:「你們往城裡去,必有一個拿著水罐的人迎面而來,你們就跟著他去;他無論進入哪裡,你們就對那家主說:師傅問:我同我的門徒吃逾越節晚餐的客廳在那裡?他必指給你們一間舖設好了的寬大樓廳,你們就在那裡為我們預備罷!」門徒去了,來到城裡,所遇見的,正如耶穌給他們所說的;他們就預備了逾越節晚餐。到了晚上,耶穌同那十二人來了。他們坐席吃飯時,耶穌說:「我實在告訴你們:你們中有一個與我同食的要負賣我。」他們就都憂悶起來,一個一個地問他說:「難道是我嗎?」耶穌對他們說:「是十二人中的一個,同我一起在盤子裡蘸的那一個。人子固然要按照指著他所記載的而去,但是負賣人子的那人是有禍的!那人若沒有生,為他更好。」
他們正吃的時候,耶穌拿起餅來,祝福了,擘開,遞給他們說:「你們拿去吃罷!這是我的身體。」又拿起杯來,祝謝了,遞給他們,他們都從杯中喝了。耶穌對他們說:「這是我的血,新約的血,為大眾流出來的。我實在告訴你們:我決不再喝這葡萄汁了,直到我在天主的國裡喝新酒的那天。」
他們唱完聖詠,就出來,往橄欖山去了。耶穌對他們說:「你們都要跌倒,因為有記載說:『我要打擊牧人,羊群就要四散。』但我復活後,要在你們以先,到加里肋亞去。」伯多祿對他說:「即便眾人都要跌倒,我卻不然。」耶穌就向他說:「我實在告訴你:就在今天,這一夜裡,雞叫兩遍以前,你要三次不認我。」伯多祿更加激烈地說:「即便我該同你一起死,我也決不會不認你。」眾人也都這樣說了。
他們來到一個名叫革責瑪尼的莊園裡;耶穌對門徒說:「你們坐在這裡,等我去祈禱。」遂帶著伯多祿、雅各伯和若望與他同去;他開始驚懼恐怖,便對他們說:「我的心靈悲傷得要死;你們留在這裡,且要醒寤。」耶穌往前走了不遠,俯伏在地祈求,如果可能,使這時辰離他而去,說:「阿爸!父啊!一切為你都可能:請給我免去這杯罷!但是,不要照我所願意的,而要照你所願意的。」耶穌回來,見他們睡著了,就對伯
多祿說:「西滿!你睡覺嗎?你不能醒寤一個時辰嗎?你們醒寤祈禱罷!免陷於誘惑。心神固然切願,但肉體卻軟弱。」耶穌又去祈禱,說了同樣的話。他又回來,見他們仍是睡著,因為他們的眼睛沉重,也不知道要回答他什麼。他第三次回來,對他們說:「你們還睡下去嗎?還安息嗎?夠了!時辰到了,看,人子就要被交付在罪人手中了。起來!我們去罷!看,那負賣我的來近了。」
耶穌還說話的時候,那十二人中之一的猶達斯,遂即到了,同他一起的,還有帶著刀劍棍棒的群眾,是由司祭長、經師和長老那裡派來的。那出賣耶穌的人曾給他們一個暗號說:「我口親誰,誰就是;你們拿住他,小心帶去。」猶達斯一來,便立刻到耶穌跟前說:「辣彼!」遂口親了他。他們就向耶穌下手,拿住了他。站在旁邊的人中,有一個拔出劍來,砍了大司祭的僕人一劍,削下了他的一個耳朵。耶穌開口對他們說:「你們帶著刀劍棍棒出來拿我,如同對付強盜一樣;我天天在你們當中,在聖殿裡施教,你們沒有拿我;但這是為應驗經上的話。」門徒都撇下他逃跑了。那時,有一個少年人,赤身披著一塊麻布,跟隨耶穌,人們也抓住了他;但他撇下麻布,赤著身子逃走了。
他們把耶穌帶到大司祭那裡,所有的司祭長、長老和經師也都聚集在那裡。伯多祿遠遠地跟著耶穌,直到大司祭的庭院裡面,同差役們坐在一起,烤火取暖。司祭長和全體公議會,尋找證據反對耶穌,為把他處死,卻沒有找著。原來有許多人造假證據告他,但那些證據各不相符。有幾個人站起來,作假見證告他說:「我們曾聽他說過:我要拆毀這座用手建造的聖殿,三天內要另建一座不用手建造的。」連他們的這證據也不相符合於是,大司祭起來,站在中間,問耶穌說:「這些人作證反對你的事,你什麼也不回答嗎?」耶穌卻不作聲,什麼也不回答。大司祭又問他說:「你是默西亞,那應受讚頌者的兒子嗎?」耶穌說:「我是,並且你們要看見人子,坐在大能者的右邊,乘著天上的雲彩降來。」大司祭遂撕裂自己的衣服說:「何必還需要見證呢?你們都聽見褻瀆的話了,你們看著該怎樣?」眾人都判定他該死。有些人就開始向他吐唾沫,蒙起他的臉來,用拳頭打他,對他說:「你做先知罷!」差役且用巴掌打他。
伯多祿在下邊庭院裡時,來了一個大司祭的使女,看見伯多祿烤火,就注視他說:「你也是和那個納匝肋人耶穌一起的。」伯多祿卻否認說:「我不知道,也不明白你說什麼。」他遂走出去,到了門廊,雞就叫了。那使女看見他,就又給站在旁邊的人說:「這也是他們中間的人。」伯多祿又否認了。過了一會兒,站在旁邊的人又再對伯多祿說:「你確是他們中間的,因為你也是個加里肋亞人。」伯多祿就開始詛咒,並發誓說:「我不認得你們說的這個人。」立時雞叫了第二遍。伯多祿遂想起耶穌給他所說的話:「雞叫兩遍以前,你要三次不認我。」就放聲大哭起來。
一到清晨,司祭長、長老及經師和全體公議會商討完畢,就把耶穌捆綁了,解送給比拉多。比拉多問他說:「你是猶太人的君王嗎?」耶穌回答說:「你說的是。」司祭長控告他許多事;比拉多又問他說:「你看,他們控告你這麼多的事,你什麼都不回答嗎?」耶穌仍沒有回答什麼,以致比拉多大為驚異。每逢節日,總督慣常給民眾釋放一個他們所要求的囚犯。當時有一個名叫巴辣巴的,他是與那些在暴動中殺人的暴徒一同被囚的。群眾上去,要求照常給他們辦理。比拉多回答他們說:「你們願意我給你們釋放猶太人的君王嗎?」他原知道司祭長是由於嫉妒才把耶穌解送來的。但是,司祭長卻煽動群眾,寧要給他們釋放巴辣巴。比拉多又向他們說:「那麼,對你們所稱的猶太人君王,我可怎麼辦呢?」他們又喊說:「釘他在十字架上!」比拉多對他們說:「他作了什麼惡事?」他們越發喊說:「釘他在十字架上!」比拉多願意滿足群眾,就給他們釋放了巴辣巴,把耶穌鞭打後,交給他們,釘在十字架上。
兵士把耶穌帶到庭院裡面,即總督府內,把全隊叫齊,給耶穌穿上紫紅袍,編了一個茨冠給他戴上,開始向他致敬說:「猶太人的君王,萬歲!」然後用一根蘆葦敲他的頭,向他吐唾沫,屈膝朝拜他。
他們戲弄了耶穌之後,就給他脫去紫紅袍,給他穿上自己的衣服,然後帶他出去,把他釘在十字架上。有一個基勒乃人西滿,是亞歷山大和魯富的父親,他從田間來,正路過那裡,他們就強迫他背耶穌的十字架他們將耶穌帶到哥耳哥達地方,解說「髑髏」的地方,就拿沒藥調和的酒給他喝,耶穌卻沒有接受。他們就將他釘在十字架上,並把他的衣服分開,拈鬮,看誰得什麼。他們把耶穌釘在十字架上時,正是第三時辰。他的罪狀牌上寫的是:「猶太人的君王。」與他一起還釘了兩個強盜:一個在他右邊,一個在他左邊。【這就應驗了經上所說的:『他被列於叛逆之中。』】
路過的人都侮辱他,搖著頭說:「哇!你這拆毀聖殿,三天內重建起來的,你從十字架上下來,救你自己罷!」同樣,司祭長與經師也譏笑他,彼此說:「他救了別人,卻救不了自己!默西亞,以色列的君王! 現在從十字架上下來罷,叫我們看了好相信!」連與他一起釘在十字架上的人也辱罵他。到了第六時辰,遍地昏黑,直到第九時辰。在第九時辰,耶穌大聲呼號說:「厄羅依,厄羅依,肋瑪,撒巴黑塔尼?」意思是:「我的天主,我的天主,你為什麼捨棄了我?」旁邊站著的人中有的聽見了,就說:「看,他呼喚厄里亞呢!」有一個人就跑過去,把海綿浸滿了醋,綁在蘆葦上,遞給他喝,說:「等一等,我們看,是否厄里亞來將他卸下。」
耶穌大喊一聲,就斷了氣。聖所裡的帳幔,從上到下,分裂為二。對面站著的百夫長,看見耶穌這樣斷了氣,就說:「這人真是天主子!」還有些婦女從遠處觀望,其中有瑪利亞瑪達肋納,次雅各伯和若瑟的母親瑪利亞及撒羅默。她們當耶穌在加里肋亞時,就跟隨了他,服事他;還有許多別的與耶穌同上耶路撒冷來的婦女。
到了傍晚,因為是預備日,就是安息日的前一天,來了一個阿黎瑪特雅人若瑟,他是一位顯貴的議員,也是期待天國的人。他大膽地進見比拉多,要求耶穌的遺體。比拉多驚異耶穌已經死了,遂叫百夫長來,問他耶穌是否已死。既從百夫長口中得了實情,就把屍體賜給了若瑟。若瑟買了殮布,把耶穌卸下來,用殮布裹好,把他安放在巖石中鑿成的墳墓裡;然後把一塊石頭滾到墳墓門口。那時,瑪利亞瑪達肋納和若瑟的母親瑪利亞,留心觀看安放耶穌的地方。

默 想

  • 又是另一個偽善。那些見到婦人用名貴的香膏抹主,認為她浪費,怎麼不將金錢施捨窮人。若他們真有三百多塊銀錢,他們真的會拿來給予窮人嗎?他們說這話的動機有問題。
  • 耶穌當然深明此理,他稱讚那婦人,領受她那深切的愛的表達。我們試過如此激烈地表達對基督的愛嗎?
  • 山園祈禱中的耶穌,是百分百的人性表達的耶穌,他的孤單、無助、恐懼到了極點,即使這樣,他仍然以天父的心意為先,繼續勇往直前,等候那負賣者。他準備了步上刑場。他已付出那無條件的愛。
  • 我們看到耶穌基督的逾越,我們生命中是否出現一些艱難的時刻,等待我們逾越?
  • 經歷逾越,你會否想起耶穌?他也曾驚恐失措,表達軟弱的一面,但他沒有輸,他跨過了這一些,包括死亡。當你軟弱時、恐懼時,他分分秒秒在你身邊,與你一同經歷你的逾越。

那些來到瑪利亞那裏的猶太人,一看到耶穌所行的事,就有許多人信了他。他們中也有一些到法利塞人那裏去,把耶穌所行的,報告給他們。因此,司祭長和法利塞人召集了會議,說:「這人行了許多奇蹟,我們怎麼辦呢?如果讓他這樣,眾人都會信從他,羅馬人必要來,連我們的聖殿和民族都要除掉。」他們中有一個名叫蓋法的,正是那一年的大司祭,對他們說:「你們什麼都不懂,也不想想:叫一個人替百姓死,以免全民族滅亡:這為你們多麼有利。」這話不是由他自己說出來的,只因他是那年的大司祭,才預言了耶穌將為民族而死;不但為猶太民族,而且也是為使那四散的天主的兒女都聚集歸一。從那一天起,他們就議決要殺害耶穌。因此,耶穌不再公開地在猶太人中往來,卻從那裏往臨近荒野的地方去,來到一座名叫厄弗辣因的城,在那裏和他的門徒住下了。猶太人的逾越節臨近了,所以,許多人在逾越節前,從鄉間上了耶路撒冷,要聖潔自己。他們就尋找耶穌,並站在聖殿內,彼此談論說:「你們想什麼?他來不來過節呢?」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 11:45-56

45 Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what he did, believed in him; 46 but some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. 47 So the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered the council, and said, “What are we to do? For this man performs many signs. 48 If we let him go on thus, every one will believe in him, and the Romans will come and destroy both our holy place and our nation.” 49 But one of them, Ca’iaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all; 50 you do not understand that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation should not perish.” 51 He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation, 52 and not for the nation only, but to gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. 53 So from that day on they took counsel how to put him to death. 54 Jesus therefore no longer went about openly among the Jews, but went from there to the country near the wilderness, to a town called E’phraim; and there he stayed with the disciples. 55 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and many went up from the country to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. 56 They were looking for Jesus and saying to one another as they stood in the temple, “What do you think? That he will not come to the feast?”

若11:45-56    (讀經 ── 則37:21-28   詠:耶31:10-13)
那些來到瑪利亞那裡的猶太人,一看到耶穌所行的事,就有許多人信了他。他們中也有一些到法利塞人那裡去,把耶穌所行的,報告給他們。因此,司祭長和法利塞人召集了會議,說:「這人行了許多奇蹟,我們怎麼辦呢?如果讓他這樣,眾人都會信從他,羅馬人必要來,連我們的聖殿和民族都要除掉。」他們中有一個名叫蓋法的,正是那一年的大司祭,對他們說:「你們什麼都不懂,也不想想:叫一個人替百姓死,以免全民族滅亡:這為你們多麼有利。」這話不是由他自己說出來的,只因他是那年的大司祭,才預言了耶穌將為民族而死;不但為猶太民族,而且也是為使那四散的天主的兒女都聚集歸一。從那一天起,他們就議決要殺害耶穌。因此,耶穌不再公開地在猶太人中往來,卻從那裡往臨近荒野的地方去,來到一座名叫厄弗辣因的城,在那裡和他的門徒住下了。猶太人的逾越節臨近了,所以,許多人在逾越節前,從鄉間上了耶路撒冷,要聖潔自己。他們就尋找耶穌,並站在聖殿內,彼此談論說:「你們想什麼?他來不來過節呢?」

默 想

  • 當人的心硬,自然會尋找對自己有利的論句,可謂自圓其說,也嘗試說服別人,贊同自己這邊的想法。蓋法在做的,不是這樣嗎?他亦代表那些法利塞人和經師的心聲,惟置耶穌於死地,他們才感到不被威脅。
  • 當這套倫理思維成立,一個人的性命變得沒有價值了。我們怎樣看人的價值?尊嚴?生命?
  • 我們曾否也如法利塞人和經師般,害怕自己備受威脅,不惜犧牲別人?犧牲的往往不是性命攸關,而是工作上職位的機會,或陷某人於不義之境。那時,不再將人當作人,完全違反上主對人的心意,因為上主是富於仁慈的、尊重人的價值的。
  • 種種因素,皆由人的安全感錯置了,背後存在很大的恐懼。這份恐懼足以使我們離開天主。

那時候,猶太人又拿起石頭來,要砸死耶穌。耶穌向他們說:「我賴我父給你們顯示了許多善事,為了那一件,你們要砸死我呢?」猶太人回答說:「為了善事,我們不會砸死你,而是為了褻瀆的話,因為你是人,卻把你自己當作天主。」耶穌卻向他們說:「在你們的法律上不是記載著:『我說過:你們是神』麼?如果,那些蒙受天主話的,天主尚且稱他們為神——而經書是不能廢棄的——那麼,父所祝聖並派遣到世界上來的,因為說過:我是天主子,你們就說:你說褻瀆的話麼?假使我不作我父的工作,你們就不必信我,但若是我作了,你們縱然不肯信我,至少要信這些工作,如此你們必定認出父在我內,我在父內。」他們又企圖捉拿他,他卻從他們手中走脫了。
耶穌又回到約旦河對岸,若翰先前施洗的地方去了,並住在那裏。有許多人來到他那裏說:「若翰固然沒有行過神蹟,但苦翰對於這人所說的一切,都是真的。」許多人就在那裏信了耶穌。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 10:31-42

31 The Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of these do you stone me?” 33 The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we stone you but for blasphemy; because you, being a man, make yourself God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, `I said, you are Gods’? 35 If he called them Gods to whom the word of God came (and scripture cannot be broken), 36 do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, `You are blaspheming,’ because I said, `I am the Son of God’? 37 If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; 38 but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.” 39 Again they tried to arrest him, but he escaped from their hands. 40 He went away again across the Jordan to the place where John at first baptized, and there he remained. 41 And many came to him; and they said, “John did no sign, but everything that John said about this man was true.” 42 And many believed in him there.
