#10──《智者的啟示》30-32──THE “REVELATION OF THE MAGI” 30-32
耶穌以父子聖靈的名義為他們施洗，當他們全部從水裡出來時，他們從天上降下來，對他們說：」與你同在！我所有奧秘的兒子。而且，現在，從你出生第一天開始就已經看到了所有的異象和啟示。」 他們感到害怕，跌倒在地上，站起來時，他以光榮而神聖的年輕人的身份出現在他們面前。他拿起一條麵包，讚美，掰開，並首先給使徒猶大人，也給了他們中的每一個，他對他們說：「看哪，你的救贖之誕生是圓滿和封閉的。從現在到永遠，在我的承諾中得到證實。」當他離開他們的視線時，他們又一次看到了他永無止境的榮耀升上天堂。猶大人說：「我們榮耀你的威嚴，你出現在我的擬人化異象中，你為我們展示的光榮形象，以及為我們著想而穿的衣服，以使我們可以在你強大的光中穿上衣服。就像你被呼喚的名字一樣，你不在任何一個之中，因為只有你一個人知道你的好名聲、威嚴、尊貴的天父，而沒有其他人知道。為了我們的緣故，你穿上衣服出現的所有這些形式，以便我們可能認識您，是因為你以對我們的極大憐憫愛我們，而在十字架上帶給你的一切，你都為我們而忍受，被高舉在一切苦難之上，並成為每個不再有苦難的人的親人，以便我們能因你的恩典得到救贖。你擔當了我們的罪並忍受了一切，你遭受了一切，因為你是我們的保護者、我們的嚮導、我們的光明和我們的救世主，並且因為他相信了你，所以我們擁有了你的一切。你已將你的愛心全心全意地交給了我們，你為我們而忍受了一切。」 世界上的所有新門徒都高興地回答說：「我們榮耀，我們崇拜，我們感謝你的慈愛，這在人類的口中是無法言喻的，因為我們太軟弱了，你用你的大光，使我們的軟弱也發光了，藉以使我們配得你所賜予的永生和憐憫。」當他們在感恩、祈禱和對我們主的異像中大為喜樂時，每天都有許多弟兄加入信仰。猶大人對他們說：「因此，我的弟兄們，讓我們履行我們的主的誡命，他對我們說：’ 到全世界去傳揚我的福音。’ 所以，我的弟兄們，也由你們傳道的人像我們一樣，因為你也得到了我們主的恩賜。也要到各個地方去傳揚我們主的恩賜。也要到各個地方，向所有人慷慨地傳揚我們的光明和救世主的恩賜。」
THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THE “REVELATION OF THE MAGI”
30. THE HYMN OF JUDAS THOMAS
Then at night, before Sunday, Judas also led those brethren who, rejoicing, had asked him to receive the seal of our Lord also. And he went out to a spring of water, and he took oil and gave praise over it, and he said:
“We praise you, O mystery of salvation,
Which was given to us in oil by grace of anointing.
Glory to you, O hidden mystery,
Which was given to us in oil by grace for salvation,
Glory to you, O hidden mystery,
Which was given to us in oil for salvation and Absolution.
And by it (you) enlighten us and drive away
Darkness and error from us.
And again, by its mystery the athletes of the contest defeat their enemies.
Glory to you, O mystery of the oil,
Since you became worthy to be in fellowship with Christ.
With you the victorious are crowned in the contest,
And you are twinned with the Spirit.
And you fly over the water like your (twin,)
The Holy Spirit,
You mix the soul with mind,
And you renew the body with the birth of salvation.
Come, O partner of the firstborn;
Come, O renewer of humanity by the birth to eternal Life；
And rest upon these believers, the beloved ones of our
Lord Jesus Christ, and purify them and sanctify them
From all the stains of their bodies,
And may they become for you temples for your Dwelling
And rest of the Son of perfect mercy.
And may you perfectly sanctify them with the birth of Salvation.”
31. THE MAGI RECEIVE THE EUCHARIST
AND COMMISION TO PREACH
And he baptized them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and when they all came up from the water, a certain child of heavenly light appeared to them, who descended from heaven and said to them: “Peace be with you, sons of all my mysteries. And behold, now all the visions and revelations that you saw from the first day have been accomplished in your birth.” And they were afraid and fell upon the ground, and when they stood up he appeared to them in the form of a glorious and divine young man. And taking a whole loaf of bread, he gave praise, broke, and gave first to the Apostle Judas, and also to each one of them, and he said to them, “Behold the consummation and sealing of your birth of salvation. From now and forever, be confirmed in my promise. “ And when he was separated from their sight, again they saw him going up to heaven in glory that has no end. And Judas said, “We glorify your sweet majesty, your singularity in my personifications, your glorious images that you have shown us, and the clothes that you have put on for our sake, that we may be clothed in your powerful majesty. And by as many names as you have been called, you are not in any one of them, for you alone have known your great name and your majesty, and your exalted Father, and no one else. And all these forms in which you were clothed and appeared for our sake, that we might know you, were because you loved us with your great mercy that was for us, and everything that the crucifiers brought upon you, you endured for our sake, being exalted above all sufferings and being a kinsperson of that one who does not suffer, in order that we should have redemption by your grace. And on our behalf you endured everything and you suffered everything, for you are our advocate, and our guide, and our light, and our savior, and because he have believed in you, we have everything in you. And you have completely given it to us by the trust of your love toward us, you who endured everything for our sake.” And all the new disciples of the world of salvation answered and said with great joy: “We glorify, and we worship, and we give thanks for your majesty, which is unspeakable by the mouth of human beings because we are too weak for it, and for your great light, you caused to shine upon our weakness, by which you made us worthy in your mercy for your fellowship of everlasting life.“ And while they were delighting greatly in thanksgiving, and prayer, and visions of our Lord, a multitude of brethren were added to the faith day by day. And Judas said to them: “Therefore, my brethren, let us fulfill the commandment of our Lord, who has said to us: ‘Go out into the entire world and preach my Gospel.’ So, my brethren, by you also preachers of the Word like us, because you have also received the gift of our Lord. Also go out to every place and preach the gift of our Lord. Also go out to every place and preach the gift of our light and of our savior generously to everyone.”
32. THE PREACHING OF THE MAGI
And they went forth from there to every place and preached in perfect love about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Lord of all, even doing mighty works and healings in the name of our Lord, which are unspeakable by the mouth of human beings, through the Holy Spirit that was poured out upon them by the gift of our Lord. And they preached the faith of truth, saying and teaching to everyone: “Flee from the darkness and come to the light that does not pass away, so that you may live and have refuge under the wings of our Lord Jesus, our savior and our great refuge on the last day, from the fearsome judgment of fire that will come suddenly to purify the entire earth from error, which has ruled over it in its deceit. And you shall be delivered by faith from the heat of the fire and shall enter that rest that is prepared for all the chosen and the believers who have believed in the child of perfect light, and in eternal life, in the kingdom of my Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Lord of all, in his heavenly majesty, in his new world, and in his heavenly and great and never-passing-away light, and in his glorious rest. And you shall rest forever and ever, amen and amen.” The story about the Magi and their gifts has finished.
