Point of Forgiveness – Bilingual

Hebrews 10:1-14New International Version (NIV) Christ’s Sacrifice Once for All 10 The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. 2 Otherwise, would they not have stopped […]

New and Improved – Bilingual

希伯来书 9:13-22Chinese Contemporary Bible (CCB) 13 如果把山羊血、公牛血和母牛犊的灰洒在污秽的人[a]身上,就可以使他们圣洁,身体得到洁净, 14 更何况基督借着永恒的灵把自己毫无瑕疵地献给上帝呢?祂的血岂不更能洗净我们的良心,使我们脱离导致灭亡的行为,以便事奉永活的上帝吗? 15 因此,祂是新约的中保,借着死亡救赎了触犯旧约的人,好叫那些蒙召的人得到所应许的永恒基业。 16 凡是遗嘱[b],必须等到立遗嘱的人死了以后才能生效。 17 如果立遗嘱的人依然健在,遗嘱就不能生效。 18 正因如此,连立旧约也需要用血才能生效。 19 摩西依照律法向犹太人颁布所有诫命之后,便用红色的羊毛和牛膝草蘸了牛犊和山羊的血以及水,洒在律法书和百姓身上, 20 说:“这是上帝用来与你们立约的血。” 21 他又照样把血洒在圣幕和所有用来献祭的器具上。 22 根据律法,几乎所有的器具都要用血来洁净,因为若不流血,罪就得不到赦免。 Hebrews 9:13-22New International Version (NIV) 13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. 14 How much more, then, will the blood of […]

希 伯 來 書 3:7-19Chinese New Testament: Easy-to-Read Version (ERV-ZH) 我们必须继续跟随上帝 7 正如圣灵所说: “今天,如果你们听到了上帝的声音, 8 不要固执, 不要像从前在荒野中 试探上帝时那样反抗他, 9 你们的祖先考验我,试探我, 尽管他们看到了我的所作所为, 10 达四十年之久。 这就是为什么我对那一代感到 气愤的原因,所以,我说道, ‘他们的思想总是误入歧途, 这些人从未认识我的道路。’ 11 所以,我一怒之下发誓说: ‘他们绝不能进入我的安宁。’” 12 兄弟们,你们要当心,谁也不要存罪恶和不信、背弃活生生的上帝之心。 13 只要还存在“今天” [a],你们就应该每天都互相鼓励,这样,你们才不会有人受到罪恶的愚弄,心肠变硬。 14 只要我们自始至终坚定不移地坚持我们当初的信仰,我们都会与基督共享。 15 正如《经》里写到的: “今日,如果你们听到上帝的声音, 不要固执, 不要像过去那样对抗上帝。” 16 谁是那听到了上帝的声音,却依然对抗上帝的人呢?难道不是那些被摩西领出埃及的人吗? 17 是谁惹怒了上帝整整四十年?难道不是那些做了孽、结果陈尸旷野的人吗? 18 上帝发誓不让谁从他那里得到安息呢?难道不是那些不服从上帝的人吗? 19 因此,我们知道,因为他们没有信仰,所以他们没有从上帝那里得到安宁。 Hebrews 3:7-19New International Version (NIV) Warning Against Unbelief 7 So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear […]

Jesus > _____ – Bilingual

希 伯 來 書 1:1-4Chinese New Testament: Easy-to-Read Version (ERV-ZH) 上帝通过他儿子讲的话 1 过去,上帝曾多次用多种不同的方式,通过先知对我们的祖先讲话。 2 在这些最后的日子里,他又通过他的儿子向我们讲话,指定了这个儿子做为一切的继承人,并且通过这个儿子创造了世界。 3 他是上帝荣耀的闪光,他的本性与上帝的一样,他用强有力的话语维系万物。当他清除了人类的罪孽之后,在天堂便坐到上帝的右侧, 4 就像他继承的名字比天使的名字更伟大一样,他高于所有的天使。 希 伯 來 書 2:1-4Chinese New Testament: Easy-to-Read Version (ERV-ZH) 我们的拯救比律法更伟大 2 因此,我们必须更加注意我们所听到的那些事情(真理), 2 免得偏离了它们。如果通过天使传播的律法是有效的,而且每个违法与不服从的行为都应受到惩罚, 3 那么,如果我们忽视了如此伟大的拯救,又如何能逃脱惩罚呢?主首先宣告了拯救,然后又由听到的人向我们做了证实。 4 上帝还用迹象、奇迹、各种神迹 [a],并按他的旨意用圣灵的恩赐,做了证实。 Hebrews 1:1-4New International Version (NIV) God’s Final Word: His Son 1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times […]
