chapter, gospel, interpretation, matthew, part
John prepare the way for the Lord in the hearts, not a collection of people around him and to his account, but enter the masses of the people to a life of repentance, confessing their sins. The Pharisees and the Sadducees to his baptism came with their bodies without their hearts, so it became Aoboukhm thus: "O generation of vipers, who'll see that evaded the wrath to come." . John was not the reed shaken by the wind, which Vehtz in front of these leaders toady them, but he strongly desires salvation, blatant evil that is in them, inviting them "vipers."
Almtdhadon leaders agreed together against John also agreed together against Christ himself, it was the Pharisees represent the authority of the Church and the Jewish tradition literally fatal. The Sadducees, representing the anti side of power, against tradition, deny the resurrection do not accept the idea of a life. The Pharisees were looking to John that it is more dangerous than the Sadducees in the revolution to power, the masses came out of all the cities to see a vivid example of the life of the penitent process, which exposes the Pharisees and all the men of religious authority. The Sadducees, they with their resistance they see in John is the most dangerous of men religious authority, has to win over the masses described, offering them spiritual concepts demolish ideas Sadducees.
In any case, stopping in front of St. John the Pharisees and the Sadducees full force Aoboukhm, Mlkabba them: "O generation of vipers." As St. John Chrysostom says: [Well invited them vipers, it is said that the animal at birth eat young belly of her mother and consumed by Vijrjohn to light, so do the kind of people, since they are the murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers (1 Timothy 1: 9) annihilating teachers with their hands .]
St. John the Baptist completes his interview with the Pharisees and the Sadducees, saying: "Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance. And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham father, for I tell you that God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham." [8-9].
If the Jews in general, and spiritual leaders in particular, rely on their lineage to Abraham's father physically parents, the St. John explained to them the invalidity of this argument. If they claim that they are "children of Abraham" In fact they are "vipers", because they do not hold the faith of Abraham neighborhood does not walk on Mnwalh, but carried the evil snakes in them. Man by his thought and actions appear son is he? Valsaleckon unwisely called the "Sons of folly" (ie 30: 8), and those who walk in sin calculate "the children of disobedience" (Col 3: 6), and do not mind the same doom-called "son of perdition" (Jn 17:12), on the contrary those who experience the new life built with Christ, and it considered "children of the resurrection" (Luke 20:36), and those who love the divine light, and seek him allege: "sons of Light" (Jn 12:36) and "Sons of the day" (1 Ts 5: 5) etc.
If these leaders have relied on their lineage to Abraham, Valzmanm confirm this same spirit of sonship, who worked with Father Abraham, otherwise God assesses his boys from the stones, has already established. God has been taken out of the nations that petrified hearts of the children of Abraham through faith in Jesus Christ, who saw Ibrahim day Vthll (Jn 8:56).
St. John Chrysostom sees that this analogy came the birth of this talented people through Isaac to Abraham through the womb of Sarah aseptic as if petrified . Was a stone in the case of death is unable to have children, sued God than boys to Abraham through the power of God's promise to Abraham's faith in God and capable of residence from the dead. This is what the prophet meant when he said: "Look to the rock from which hewn, and to the pit from which Hfrm. Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you" (Isaiah 51: 1-2). Here is a reminder of this filiation now, God has made him the father of them miraculously like someone lives of stones boys. Now also can do it .
St. Augustine believes that the stones that came up children to Abraham refers to nations who worshiped idols Vsaroa stones, and accepted the faith of Abraham, who was to become of his descendants spiritually. It says: [intended stones all nations rather than for their ability to prospect a stone which the builders rejected, but for Gbautem and Bladthm false, they became Kaloxiae which used to serve them, as they worshiped images rigid even they themselves without sense; "like the creators, but all of dependable "(Psalm 115: 8). But as they began to worship God, what they heard to whom? "That you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven, it is sun shines on the righteous and the wicked, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous" (Matthew 5:45) as the rights become similar to those who worship him. So what is meant by saying: "God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham" (Matthew 3: 9)? ... Any Naseer up children to Abraham Bamtthalna faith and not Bmeladna of his **** .] Says: [We were in our fathers stones as Abdna stones as gods, of these stones Ikhalguena the family of God to Abraham .]
St. Jerome says: God can make stones to raise up children of Abraham; refers here to the nations, since they are the stones because of the cruelty of their hearts. For we read: "And I will take the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a k a heart of flesh" (Ezekiel 36: 26). Vahadjr image of cruelty and kindness meat code. He wanted to show the power of God is capable of stones to create a rigid believer in the people .]
"And now also the ax is laid to the root of the trees.
Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. ".
What is meant by the ax hits the tree is fruitful, or trees, which carries the fruit is good, but Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, who beat out the old corrupt human nature to perish, a resident of the new man, which is the image of the Creator, which offers the fruit of the Holy Spirit is heartening. It's the old man buried in the waters of baptism as in the grave with Mr., or throw it in the fire and to give us a life experience. This is no wonder that complemented the prophet talking about Christian baptism, being by the old man demolition of the new man, and resurrection, he says: "I Omaykm water for repentance, but that after me comes from is stronger than me, which I am not worthy to carry his shoes, he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire ".
St James Serugh says: Baptism is full of great furnace fire, where people curse thee to become non-dead .]
St. Cyprian says: [It's baptism in which the old man dies, and the new man is born as the apostle declares stressing that it saved us washing renewal .]
St. John the Baptist sees it is worthy to carry the shoes of Jesus Christ, and in another position for which he is due to replace his shoes thongs (Jn 1:27), what does this mean? If the word of God is perceived as one who has become worn shoes incarnation, it is become as one of us walks among us, the St. John announces that he is not worthy to carry this ultra secret that the incarnation, that does not solve the Okhtamh (Syora) It can not be expressed.
Says Father Gregory (the Great): Who does not know that the shoe is made from dead animals skin ?! The Lord became incarnate, appears among the people like one who is Manve as wearing theology viable cover for the death of the Prophet says: "I put on a bathrobe Edom" (Psalm 60: 8). It has been pointed Nations Badum ... through the **** become known to the United Nations, as if that theology has come to us Manve foot. But can not the human eye to penetrate the mystery of the Incarnation. It is not by him realize how checks became incarnate word, and how brisk upper spirit and Giver of life inside the bowels of the mother, and how the One who rope without beginning and came to exist. So Vcior boot seals but are password. John was not worthy to replace his shoes as he was unable to search in the mystery of incarnation ... I know that he was born after me, but I can not understand the mystery of this baby. See! John is full of the spirit - the spirit of prophecy - and enlightened knowledge announces that he does not know anything about this mystery .]
Secret of St. John the Baptist's success is his modesty; Fbcolh It is worthy to replace belts shoes St. John Chrysostom says, as if to say: [It's high on the very, does not deserve that figured less Abdul him, the solution to the shoe thongs are more menial work . ]
After that asked them to repent-bearing process of spiritual fruit, advance their baptism break the heart of their human archaic and enjoy new life, speaking in humility that he is worthy of understanding the secrets of pregnancy superior, explained the advent of this pregnancy Kdian "which Rvhh in his hand, and Senqa Pedrh, combines Qamha to the store , and the hay Faihrgah fire is not quenched. ".
So give them St. John the Baptist Jesus Kdian, it was his kindness leaves with wheat straw but until, inevitably will come a time to scatter the harvest, and separates the wheat to the store, and hay to the fire. Now live the righteous with the wicked, and the believers with non-believers, even the great day of the Lord, who is himself Baltdhirah comes. Rvhh clutching in his hand does not extradite him to another, it alone and Kader Arif hearts that separates the wheat from the straw wisely without sin.
St. Augustine reassures us that, although I found mixed wheat straw here, but this will not hurt the wheat does not lose Xleilha, there will come a time to isolate it from the hay where burn straw in the fire: [This hay not perish from their wheat Lord, who are few if compared to their others, but they are great collection. Not perish Mokhtaaro God who collect from the far reaches of the world, from the four winds, from a maximum of up to heaven (Matthew 24: 31). Selectors and screaming, saying: "O Lord, concluded, because it may godly, because it may cut Trustees of human beings" (Psalm 12: 1). The Lord says to them: "It endures to the end (where restricts evil) will be saved" (Matthew 24: 13) .]
3. Baptism of Christ
"Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized of him.
But John forbad him, saying:
I need to be baptized of you and you come to me.
Jesus answered and said to him: Allow now, because it is so fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.
Then he suffered him.
Jesus when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water.
Taking the heavens were opened unto him,
He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him.
And a voice from heaven, saying:
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. "[13-17].
The church celebrates the Baptism of Christ being a long holiday divine appearance, where he announced the Holy Trinity itself. It was at the Jordan River, confessing their sins, many came, Mr. enter it into the water revealed a truth that the Holy Trinity. Income between sinners to unfold, Vndrick secrets, not just mental knowledge, but to test his superior in us.
St. Augustine is talking about the emergence of the Holy Trinity in baptism, saying: [next to the Jordan River and look Consider also in view of the subject of God for us. We have announced our God himself being the Trinity. Jesus was adopted by John came, by the servant of the Lord, is an example of humility. Showed us the humility that love may fulfilled. When John said to him: "I have need to be baptized of thee, and you come to me. Replied: Allow now, so it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." [14-15].
When the heavens opened and the Holy Spirit descended in the form of a dove, followed by a voice from heaven, saying: "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." . So here we have differentiated the Trinity, the one from the other: the Father, the sound, the son of the human, and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove. They are the one God, however, is the son of the Father, and the Father is the Son, and the Holy Spirit is not the Father and the Son. We know that this Trinity, which does not speak of it, living in the same, renews all, creates, calls, condemns concludes, this is the Trinity as we know it does not speak and is separate .
We can realize how interesting the church baptism of St. Jerome Keywords: [Lakers did the Savior himself the kingdom of heaven, but after sanctification Jordan Bngtish in Gen. .]
