使徒行傳 2:1-47 Chinese New Version (Traditional) (CNVT)
2 五旬節到了，他們都聚集在一起。 2 忽然有一陣好像強風吹過的響聲，從天而來，充滿了他們坐在裡面的整間屋子。 3 又有火燄般的舌頭顯現出來，分別落在他們各人身上。 4 他們都被聖靈充滿，就照著聖靈所賜給他們的口才，用別種語言說出話來。
5 那時住在耶路撒冷的，有從天下各國來的虔誠的猶太人。 6 這聲音一響，許多人都聚了來，人人都聽見門徒講出聽眾各人本鄉的話，就莫名其妙。 7 他們又驚訝、又驚奇，說：“你看，這些說話的，不都是加利利人嗎？ 8 我們各人怎麼聽見他們講我們從小所用的本鄉話呢？ 9 我們帕提亞人、瑪代人、以攔人和住在美索不達米亞、猶太、加帕多家、本都、亞西亞、 10 弗呂家、旁非利亞、埃及，並靠近古利奈的利比亞一帶地方的人，客居羅馬的猶太人和歸信猶太教的人， 11 克里特人以及阿拉伯人，都聽見他們用我們的語言，講說 神的大作為。” 12 眾人還在驚訝迷惘的時候，彼此說：“這是甚麼意思？” 13 另有些人譏笑說：“他們是給新酒灌醉了。”
14 彼得和十一使徒站起來，他高聲對眾人說：“猶太人和所有住在耶路撒冷的人哪，你們應當明白這件事，也應該留心聽我的話。 15 這些人並不是照你們所想的喝醉了，現在不過是上午九點鐘罷了。 16 這正是約珥先知所說的：
17 ‘ 神說：在末後的日子，
22 “以色列人哪，請聽聽這幾句話：正如你們所知道的， 神已經藉著拿撒勒人耶穌在你們中間施行了大能、奇事、神蹟，向你們證明他是 神所立的。 23 他照著 神的定旨和預知被交了出去，你們就藉不法之徒的手，把他釘死了。 24 神卻把死的痛苦解除，使他復活了，因為他不能被死亡拘禁。 25 大衛指著他說：
29 “弟兄們，關於祖先大衛的事，我不妨坦白告訴你們，他死了，葬了，直到今日他的墳墓還在我們這裡。 30 他是先知，既然知道 神向他起過誓，要從他的後裔中立一位，坐在他的寶座上， 31 又預先看見了這事，就講論基督的復活說：
32 這位耶穌， 神已經使他復活了，我們都是這事的見證人。 33 他既然被高舉到 神的右邊，從父領受了所應許的聖靈，就把他澆灌下來，這就是你們所看見所聽見的。 34 大衛並沒有升到天上，他卻說：
36 因此，以色列全家應當確實知道，你們釘在十字架上的這位耶穌， 神已經立他為主為基督了。”
37 他們聽了以後，覺得扎心，就對彼得和其餘的使徒說：“弟兄們，我們應當作甚麼呢？” 38 彼得說：“你們應當悔改，並且每一個人都要奉耶穌基督的名受洗，使你們的罪得赦，就必領受聖靈，那白白的恩典。 39 這應許原是給你們和你們的兒女，以及所有在遠方的人，就是給凡是我們主 神召來歸他的人。” 40 彼得還用許多別的話，鄭重作證，並且勸勉他們，說：“你們應當救自己脫離這彎曲的世代！” 41 於是接受他話的人都受了洗，那一天門徒增加了約三千人。 42 他們恆心遵守使徒的教訓，彼此相通、擘餅和祈禱。
43 使徒行了許多奇事神蹟，眾人就都懼怕。 44 所有信的人都在一起，凡物公用，45 並且變賣產業和財物，按照各人的需要分給他們。 46 他們天天同心在殿裡恆切地聚集，一家一家地擘餅，存著歡樂和誠懇的心用飯， 47 又讚美 神，並且得到全民的喜愛。主將得救的人，天天加給教會。
使徒行傳 3:1-26 Chinese New Version (Traditional) (CNVT)
3 在下午三點禱告的時辰，彼得和約翰上聖殿去。 2 有一個生來瘸腿的人被人抬來。他們天天把他放在那名叫美門的殿門口，讓他好向進殿的人討飯。 3 他看見彼得和約翰將要進殿，就向他們討飯。 4 彼得和約翰定睛看著他，彼得說：“你看我們！” 5 那人就留意看著他們，希望從他們得些甚麼。 6 彼得卻說：“金銀我都沒有，只把我有的給你：我奉拿撒勒人耶穌基督的名，吩咐你行走！” 7 於是拉著他的右手，扶他起來；他的腳和踝骨立刻強壯有力， 8 他一跳就站了起來，並且行走。他連走帶跳，讚美 神，同他們進入殿中。 9 群眾看見他一邊走一邊讚美 神； 10 他們一認出他就是那平時坐在聖殿美門口討飯的，就因他所經歷的事，滿心希奇，驚訝不已。
11 那人拉著彼得和約翰的時候，群眾都很驚奇，跑到他們那裡，就是所羅門廊的下面。 12 彼得看見了，就對群眾說：“以色列人哪，為甚麼因這事希奇呢？為甚麼瞪著我們，好像我們是憑著自己的能力和虔誠，使這人行走呢？ 13 亞伯拉罕、以撒、雅各的 神，就是我們祖宗的 神，榮耀了他的僕人耶穌。這位耶穌，你們把他送交官府。彼拉多本來定意要放他，你們卻當著彼拉多的面拒絕他。 14 你們把那聖者義者拒絕了，反而要求給你們釋放一個殺人犯。 15 你們殺了那‘生命的創始者’， 神卻使他從死人中復活。我們就是這件事的見證人。 16 是他的名—因信他的名—使你們所看見所認識的這個人強壯了。這從耶穌而來的信心，當著你們眾人面前，把他完全醫好了。 17 弟兄們，我知道你們所作的，是出於無知，你們的官長也是這樣。 18 但 神曾經藉著眾先知的口，預先宣告他所立的基督將要受害的事，就這樣應驗了。19 所以你們應當悔改歸正，使你們的罪得著塗抹。 20 這樣，那安樂的日子，必從主面前來到，並且他必把為你們預先選定的基督（耶穌）差來。 21 他必留在天上，直到萬物復興的時候，就是 神自古藉著聖先知的口所說的。 22 摩西曾說：‘你們的主 神要從你們弟兄中間，給你們興起一位先知像我；無論他對你們說甚麼，你們都應當聽從。 23 無論誰不聽從那位先知，必定從民中滅絕。’ 24 所有從撒母耳起，以及相繼興起來講話的先知，都曾經宣告這些日子。 25 你們是先知的子孫，也是承受 神向你們祖先所立之約的人。 神曾經對亞伯拉罕說：‘地上萬族，都要因你的後裔得福。’ 26 神先給你們興起他的僕人，差他來祝福你們，使你們各人回轉，離開邪惡。”
使徒行传 4:1-37 Chinese New Version (Traditional) (CNVT)
4 使徒們正對群眾講話的時候，祭司、聖殿的守衛長，和撒都該人來到他們那裡。2 因為使徒教訓群眾，並且傳揚耶穌從死人中復活，他們就非常惱怒， 3 於是下手拿住使徒。那時天已經晚了，就把他們拘留到第二天。 4 然而有許多聽道的人信了，男人的數目，約有五千。
5 第二天，猶太人的官長、長老、經學家，都聚集在耶路撒冷， 6 還有大祭司亞那和該亞法、約翰、亞歷山大，以及大祭司的家人，所有的人都在那裡。 7 他們叫使徒都站在當中，查問說：“你們憑甚麼能力，奉誰的名作這事？” 8 當時彼得被聖靈充滿，對他們說：“民眾的領袖和長老啊！ 9 我們今天受審，如果是為了在那殘疾人身上所行的善事，就是這個人怎麼會好的， 10 那麼，你們各位和以色列全民都應當知道，站在你們面前這人好了，是因拿撒勒人耶穌基督的名。這位耶穌基督，你們把他釘死在十字架上， 神卻使他從死人中復活。 11 這耶穌是你們
13 他們看見彼得和約翰的膽量，也知道這兩個人是沒有學問的平民，就很驚奇；同時認出他們是跟耶穌一夥的， 14 又看見那醫好了的人，和他們一同站著，就沒有話可辯駁。 15 於是吩咐他們到公議會外面去，彼此商議， 16 說：“對這些人我們應該怎麼辦呢？因為有一件人所共知的神蹟，藉著他們行了出來，所有住在耶路撒冷的人都知道，我們也無法否認。 17 為了避免這件事在民間越傳越廣，我們應該警告他們，不許再奉這名向任何人談道。” 18 於是叫了他們來，嚴禁他們再奉耶穌的名講論教導。19 彼得和約翰回答：“聽從你們過於聽從 神，在 神面前對不對，你們自己說吧！20 我們看見的聽見的，不能不說！” 21 眾人因著所發生的事，都頌讚 神，於是公議會為了群眾的緣故，也因為找不到藉口懲罰他們，就恐嚇一番，把他們放了。 22 原來藉著神蹟醫好的那人，有四十多歲了。
23 彼得和約翰被釋放了之後，回到自己的人那裡去，把祭司長和長老說的一切，都告訴他們。 24 他們聽了，就同心向 神高聲說：“主啊，你是那創造天地、海洋和其中萬物的主宰。 25 你曾以聖靈藉著你僕人我們祖先大衛的口說：
27 希律和本丟．彼拉多，外族人和以色列民，真的在這城裡聚集，反對你所膏立的聖僕耶穌， 28 行了你手和你旨意所預定要成就的一切。 29 主啊，他們恐嚇我們，現在求你鑒察，也賜你僕人們大有膽量，傳講你的道。 30 求你伸手醫治，藉著你聖僕耶穌的名，大行神蹟奇事。” 31 他們禱告完了，聚會的地方震動起來，他們都被聖靈充滿，放膽傳講 神的道。
32 全體信徒一心一意，沒有一個人說自己的財物是自己的，他們凡物公用。 33 使徒大有能力，為主耶穌的復活作見證，眾人都蒙了大恩。 34 他們中間沒有一個有缺乏的，因為凡有田產房屋的都賣了，把得到的錢拿來， 35 放在使徒腳前，照著各人的需要來分配。 36 有一個人名叫約瑟，使徒稱他為巴拿巴，就是“安慰者”的意思，他是個利未人，生在塞浦路斯。 37 他賣掉了自己的田地，把錢拿來，放在使徒的腳前。
Acts 2:1-47 New International Version (NIV)
The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost
2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.
5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,[b] 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”
13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”
Peter Addresses the Crowd
14 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. 15 These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! 16 No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
17 “‘In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
18 Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
19 I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21 And everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord will be saved.’[c]
22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. 23 This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men,[d] put him to death by nailing him to the cross. 24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.25 David said about him:
“‘I saw the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest in hope,
27 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
you will not let your holy one see decay.
28 You have made known to me the paths of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence.’[e]
29 “Fellow Israelites, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. 30 But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. 31 Seeing what was to come, he spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay.32 God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. 33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said,
“‘The Lord said to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
35 until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.”’[f]
36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”
37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”
38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
40 With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” 41 Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.
The Fellowship of the Believers
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Acts 3:1-26 New International Version (NIV)
Peter Heals a Lame Beggar
3 One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon. 2 Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. 4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” 5 So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
6 Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” 7 Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. 8 He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. 9 When all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
Peter Speaks to the Onlookers
11 While the man held on to Peter and John, all the people were astonished and came running to them in the place called Solomon’s Colonnade. 12 When Peter saw this, he said to them: “Fellow Israelites, why does this surprise you? Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? 13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. You handed him over to be killed, and you disowned him before Pilate,though he had decided to let him go. 14 You disowned the Holy and Righteous Oneand asked that a murderer be released to you. 15 You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this. 16 By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.
17 “Now, fellow Israelites, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders.18 But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer. 19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, 20 and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus. 21 Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets. 22 For Moses said, ‘The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you. 23 Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from their people.’[a]
24 “Indeed, beginning with Samuel, all the prophets who have spoken have foretold these days. 25 And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’[b] 26 When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.”
Acts 4:1-37 New International Version (NIV)
Peter and John Before the Sanhedrin
4 The priests and the captain of the temple guard and the Sadducees came up to Peter and John while they were speaking to the people. 2 They were greatly disturbed because the apostles were teaching the people, proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead. 3 They seized Peter and John and, because it was evening, they put them in jail until the next day. 4 But many who heard the message believed; so the number of men who believed grew to about five thousand.
5 The next day the rulers, the elders and the teachers of the law met in Jerusalem.6 Annas the high priest was there, and so were Caiaphas, John, Alexander and others of the high priest’s family. 7 They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them: “By what power or what name did you do this?”
8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! 9 If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, 10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11 Jesus is
“‘the stone you builders rejected,
which has become the cornerstone.’[a]
12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
13 When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. 14 But since they could see the man who had been healed standing there with them, there was nothing they could say. 15 So they ordered them to withdraw from the Sanhedrin and then conferred together. 16 “What are we going to do with these men?” they asked. “Everyone living in Jerusalem knows they have performed a notable sign, and we cannot deny it. 17 But to stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them to speak no longer to anyone in this name.”
18 Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speakingabout what we have seen and heard.”
21 After further threats they let them go. They could not decide how to punish them, because all the people were praising God for what had happened. 22 For the man who was miraculously healed was over forty years old.
The Believers Pray
23 On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. 25 You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David:
“‘Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
26 The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord
27 Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. 28 They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. 29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. 30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
The Believers Share Their Possessions
32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.
36 Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”), 37 sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet.
