የኢየሱስ መልክ በቅጽበት መቀየር

17፥1-8 ተጓ ምብ – ሉቃ 9፥28-36

17፥1-13 ተጓ ምብ – ማር 9፥2-13

1ከስድስት ቀን በኋላ ኢየሱስ፣ ጴጥሮስንና ያዕቆብን እንዲሁም የያዕቆብን ወንድም ዮሐንስን ወደ አንድ ከፍ ያለ ተራራ ብቻቸውን ይዞአቸው ወጣ።

2በዚያም በፊታቸው መልኩ ተቀየረ፤ ፊቱ እንደ ፀሓይ አበራ፤ ልብሱም እንደ ብርሃን አንጸባረቀ። 3ወዲያውም ሙሴና ኤልያስ ከኢየሱስ ጋር ሲነጋገሩ ታዩአቸው።

4ጴጥሮስም ኢየሱስን፣ “ጌታ ሆይ፤ በዚህ ብንሆን ለእኛ መልካም ነው፤ ፈቃድህ ከሆነ፣ አንድ ለአንተ፣ አንድ ለሙሴ፣ አንድ ለኤልያስ ሦስት ዳሶች ልሥራ” አለው።

5እርሱ እየተናገረ ሳለ፣ ብሩህ ደመና ሸፈናቸው፤ ከደመናውም ውስጥ፣ “በእርሱ ደስ የሚለኝ የምወደው ልጄ ይህ ነው፤ እርሱን ስሙት” የሚል ድምፅ ተሰማ።

6ደቀ መዛሙርቱም ይህን ሲሰሙ ደንግጠው በግንባራቸው መሬት ላይ ተደፉ። 7ኢየሱስም ቀርቦ ነካቸውና፣ “ተነሡ፤ አትፍሩ” አላቸው። 8ቀና ብለው ሲመለከቱም ከኢየሱስ በስተቀር ሌላ ማንንም አላዩም።

9ከተራራው በመውረድ ላይ ሳሉ ኢየሱስ፣ “የሰው ልጅ ከሞት እስኪነሣ ድረስ ያያችሁትን ለማንም እንዳትናገሩ” ብሎ አዘዛቸው።

10ደቀ መዛሙርቱም፣ “ታዲያ የኦሪት ሕግ መምህራን፣ ኤልያስ አስቀድሞ መምጣት አለበት የሚሉት ለምንድን ነው?” ብለው ጠየቁት።

11እርሱም መልሶ እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “ኤልያስ በርግጥ መጥቶ ሁሉንም ነገር ያስተካክላል፤ 12ነገር ግን እላችኋለሁ፤ ኤልያስ መጥቶአል፤ ሆኖም የፈለጉትን ነገር አደረጉበት እንጂ አላወቁትም። እንዲሁም የሰው ልጅ በእጃቸው መከራን ይቀበላል።” 13በዚህ ጊዜ ደቀ መዛሙርቱ ኢየሱስ የነገራቸው ስለ መጥምቁ ዮሐንስ መሆኑን ተረዱ።

ኢየሱስ የሚጥል በሽታ ያለበትን ልጅ ፈወሰ

14ወደ ሕዝቡ እንደ ተመለሱ፣ አንድ ሰው ወደ ኢየሱስ ቀርቦ በፊቱ ተንበረከከና እንዲህ አለ፤ 15“ጌታ ሆይ፤ እባክህ ልጄን ማርልኝ፤ በሚጥል በሽታ እጅግ እየተሠቃየ ነው፤ ብዙ ጊዜ እሳት ውስጥ ይወድቃል፤ ውሃ ውስጥም ይገባል፤ 16ወደ ደቀ መዛሙርትህ አመጣሁት፤ ነገር ግን ሊፈውሱት አልቻሉም።”

17ኢየሱስም፣ “አንት የማታምን ጠማማ ትውልድ፤ እስከ መቼ ከእናንተ ጋር እኖራለሁ፤ እስከ መቼስ እታገሣችኋለሁ። ልጁን ወደዚህ አምጡት” አለ። 18ከዚያም ኢየሱስ ጋኔኑን ገሠጸውና ከልጁ ወጣ፤ ልጁም ከዚያች ሰዓት ጀምሮ ዳነ።

19ደቀ መዛሙርቱም ለብቻቸው ወደ ኢየሱስ ቀርበው፣ “እኛ ጋኔኑን ማስወጣት ያልቻልነው ለምንድን ነው?” ብለው ጠየቁት።

20እርሱም እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “እምነታችሁ በማነሱ ምክንያት ነው፤ እላችኋለሁ፤ የሰናፍጭ ቅንጣት የምታህል እምነት ቢኖራችሁ፣ ይህንን ተራራ፣ ‘ከዚህ ተነሥተህ ወደዚያ ሂድ’ ብትሉት ይሄዳል፤ የሚሳናችሁም ነገር አይኖርም፤ 21የዚህ ዓይነቱ ግን በጸሎትና በጾም ካልሆነ በስተቀር አይወጣም።”

22በገሊላ ተሰባስበው ሳሉ ኢየሱስ እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “የሰውን ልጅ አሳልፈው ለሰዎች ይሰጡታል፤ 23ይገድሉታልም፤ እርሱም በሦስተኛው ቀን ይነሣል።” ደቀ መዛሙርቱም እጅግ አዘኑ።

ስለ ቤተ መቅደስ ግብር ክፍያ

24ኢየሱስና ደቀ መዛሙርቱ ቅፍርናሆም ከደረሱ በኋላ፣ የቤተ መቅደሱ ግብር ተቀባዮች ወደ ጴጥሮስ ቀርበው “መምህራችሁ ሁለቱን ዲናር የቤተ መቅደስ ግብር አይከፍልምን?” አሉት።

25እርሱም፣ “ይከፍላል እንጂ” አላቸው።

ጴጥሮስ ወደ ቤት እንደ ገባ ኢየሱስ በቅድሚያ፣ “ስምዖን፤ የምድር ነገሥታት ግብር ወይም ቀረጥ የሚቀበሉት ከራሳቸው ልጆች ወይስ ከሌሎች ይመስልሃል?” አለው።

26ጴጥሮስም፣ “ከሌሎች ነው የሚቀበሉት” አለው።

ኢየሱስም እንዲህ አለ፤ “እንግዲያውስ ልጆች ነጻ ናቸው፤ 27ሆኖም እንዳናስቀይማቸው ሄደህ መንጠቆህን ወደ ባሕር ጣል፤ መጀመሪያ የምትይዘውን ዓሣ አፉን ስትከፍት የምታገኘውን አንድ እስታቴር በእኔና በአንተ ስም ክፈል።”

King James Version

Matthew 17:1-27

1And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. 4Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 5While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. 6And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 8And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. 9And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. 10And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? 11And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. 12But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. 13Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

14¶ And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, 15Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 16And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 17Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. 18And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

22¶ And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men: 23And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.

24¶ And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? 25He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? 26Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. 27Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
