使徒行传 17:16-21Chinese Contemporary Bible (CCB) 保罗在雅典传道 16 保罗在雅典等候他们的时候,看见满城都是偶像,心里非常着急。 17 于是他在会堂跟犹太人和虔诚的外族人辩论,每天在广场上跟遇见的人辩论。 18 还有一些伊壁鸠鲁和斯多亚学派的哲学家和保罗争论,有人嘲笑他说:“这人在胡说八道些什么呀?”还有人说:“他好像在宣扬外国的神明。” 他们这样说是因为保罗在传讲耶稣和祂复活的福音。 19 他们带保罗到一个称为亚略·巴古的论坛,问他:“我们可以知道你所教导的这个新道理吗? 20 你的言论确实稀奇,我们很想知道个究竟。” 21 这些雅典人和侨居在那里的人没有别的嗜好,只喜欢谈论和打听一些新奇的事。 Acts 17:16-21New International Version (NIV) In Athens 16 While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was greatly distressed to see that the city was full of idols. 17 So he reasoned in the synagogue with both Jews and God-fearing Greeks, as well […]
