lesson82 The Bible  《圣经》(英国)

原文:

C:Chinese student     F:Foreigner

 

C: I have heard a lot about the Bible but never read it.

F: Well, someone once said that it's the world's best-selling book but also the world's least read book!

C: Why is that?

F: Some people think that the Bible is difficult to read because they are used to the King James are many modem translations Version where some of the English is difficult but there available now.

C: You said that the Bible is the world's best-selling book. Why is chat?

F: Several reasons. There are many great stories in it such as David and Goliath. Jonah and the Whale and the Good Samaritan.

C: Wasn't he the one who helped someone in distress when nobody else would?

F: That's right. Jesus told that story to emphasise that everyone is our neighbour and we have a responsibility rewards them.

C: So Jesus was a great teacher as well as a good man.

F: He was actually more than that. He was fully man and God too.

C: I find that hard to believe. Isn't the Bible just a collection of myths and fables?

F: Some people think so but most Christians take it literally as God's word which is another reason for its popularity.

C: But God didn't write it.

F: About 40 different people wrote it over a period of 1500 years on 3 different continents and in 3 different languages but all the writer claimed to have been inspired by God.

C: I see. Can you tell me another reason?

F: Many people see it as the finest lit Shakespeare. There are some incredibly poetic passages in it that have stood the test of time .

C: Can you give me an example?

F: There's I Corinthians chapter 13 which is called The Gift of Love.  Prime Minister Tony Blair read it at Lady Diana's funeral.Among other things it says, “Love is patient; Love is kind; Love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. "

C: So the Bible is full of exciting stories, great literature and a book of faith for Christians?

F: That's right. But remember too that the Old Testament is also known as the Hebrew Bible which is the faith book for Jews. That's another reason for its popularity.


译文:

C:中国学生              F:外国人

 

C:我常听人说起圣经,但还从来没读过。

F:哦,有人说《圣经》是世界上最畅销的书.但也是看的人最少的书。

C:为什么这么说?  

F:有人认为《圣经》不好理解,因为他们读的是《詹姆士国王钦定本》,那时的英语很难懂。但现在已经有了很多现代文译本。

C:你刚说到《圣经》是世界上最畅销的书,为什么?

F:有几个原因。L《圣经》里有很多伟大的故事,比如“大卫王和歌利亚”、“约拿和鲸鱼”,以及“好撒马利亚人”。

C:耶稣是个在人们危难时唯一能提供帮助的人吗?

F:没错。耶稣讲这些故事是要强调每个人都是我们的邻居,我们对他们都负有责任。

C:所以耶稣既是伟大的导师,又是一个好人。

F:不仅如此。他还是个完善的人,是上帝。

C:我觉得很难让人相信。《圣经》不就是一本神话和寓言集吗?

F:有些人是这样认为的,但大多数基督徒真的把《圣经》当成是上帝的语录,这也是《圣经》如此受欢迎的另外一个原因。

C:但上帝并没有写《圣经》。

F:《圣经》是由大约411个人在前后长达1500年里用3种不同的语言写成的,他们来自3个不同的大陆,但所有的作者都声称是受了上帝的启发。

C:我懂了。那另外一个原因呢?

F:很多人认为《圣经》是英国最优秀的文学作品,甚至比莎士比亚的作品还要好。书里面一些令人难以置信的好诗篇都经受住了时间的考验。

C:举个例子?

F:哥林多前书第13章”爱的颂歌”,首相托尼·布莱尔就曾在戴安娜王妃的葬礼上朗诵过。其中提到“爱是恒久忍耐,又有恩慈:爱是不嫉妒,爱是不自夸,不张狂。”

C:这么说《圣经》里到处都是激动人心的故事,它是部伟大的文学作品,也是基督教的教义,对吗?

F:是这样。但是也要记住《旧约》也叫做《希伯来圣经》,是犹太人的教义。这也是《圣经》受欢迎的另一个原因。
