(src)="8"> Why did Paul write a letter to the Hebrew Christians ?
(trg)="8"> Apa sebabé Paulus nulis surat kanggo para sedulur Ibraniné ?

(src)="9"> THE year was 61 C.E .
(trg)="9"> TAUN 61 M , jemaat - jemaat ing Israèl urip tentrem .

(src)="10"> The Christian congregations throughout Israel were enjoying a period of relative peace .
(trg)="10"> Wektu kuwi , rasul Paulus dipenjara ing Rum , ning dhèwèké péngin ndang dibébaské .

(src)="11"> Although the apostle Paul was a prisoner in Rome , he was hoping to be released soon .
(trg)="11"> Kanca nginjilé , yaiku Timotéus wis dibébaské saka penjara .

(src)="12"> His companion Timothy had just been released , and they were planning to visit their Christian brothers in Judea .
(trg)="12"> Dadi , Paulus péngin ngajak Timotéus nekani para sedulur ing Yudéa .

(src)="13"> However , in five years ’ time , Jerusalem would be “ surrounded by encamped armies , ” just as Jesus had prophesied .
(trg)="13"> Limang taun bar kuwi , wong Kristen ing Yudéa lan utamané sing ana ing Yérusalèm kudu cepet tumindak .
(trg)="14"> Apa sebabé ?

(src)="14"> Christians in Judea , and especially those living in Jerusalem , would have to act decisively .
(trg)="15"> Sakdurungé , Yésus tau kandha nèk Yérusalèm bakal dikepung para prajurit .

(src)="15"> Jesus had warned them that they would need to flee as soon as they saw these events start to unfold . ​ — Luke 21 : 20 - 24 .
(trg)="16"> Mula , wong Kristen kudu cepet mlayu . ​ — Lk .
(trg)="17"> 21 : 20 - 24 .

(src)="16"> In the 28 years since Jesus had uttered that prophecy , the faithful Jewish Christians living in Israel had already faced much opposition and persecution successfully .
(trg)="18"> Kuwi bener - bener kedadéan 28 taun sakwisé .
(trg)="19"> Wektu kuwi , wong - wong mau imané tetep kuwat senajan dianiaya lan ngadhepi masalah .

(src)="17"> Yet , Paul knew that they were about to be confronted with one of the most challenging tests of their faith .
(trg)="20"> Paulus péngin mbantu para sedulur siap - siap ngadhepi masalah mbésuké , merga arep ngalami kesusahan sing abot banget .

(src)="18"> He wanted them to be prepared for whatever might come their way .
(trg)="21"> Wong - wong kuwi kudu sabar lan nduwé iman sing luwih kuwat timbang sakdurungé .

(src)="19"> They would need exceptional endurance and faith ​ — faith strong enough to preserve their lives .
(trg)="22"> Bèn isa slamet kudu manut préntahé Yésus kon mlayu .

(src)="20"> ( Read Hebrews 10 : 36 - 39 . )
(trg)="23"> ( Wacanen Ibrani 10 : 36 - 39 . )

(src)="21"> So Paul was prompted by Jehovah’s spirit to write those dear brothers and sisters a letter designed to meet their special needs .
(trg)="24"> Mula , Yéhuwah nuntun Paulus nulis surat kanggo para sedulur .

(src)="22"> That letter is now known as the book of Hebrews .
(trg)="25"> Saiki surat kuwi disebut buku Ibrani , sing digawé kanggo nguwatké para sedulur mau wektu ngadhepi kesusahan .

(src)="23"> Why should we be interested in the book of Hebrews ?
(trg)="26"> Apa sebabé awaké dhéwé kudu nggatèkke buku Ibrani ?

(src)="24"> All of us today should be interested in what Paul wrote to those first - century Hebrew Christians .
(trg)="27"> Apa sebabé umaté Gusti Allah saiki kudu nggatèkké buku Ibrani ?

(src)="25"> Why ?
(src)="26"> Because we find ourselves in a similar situation .
(trg)="28"> Merga kahanané awaké dhéwé padha karo kahanané wong Kristen ing Yudéa .

(src)="27"> During these “ critical times hard to deal with , ” Jehovah’s people have faced all types of opposition and persecution .
(trg)="29"> Awaké dhéwé urip ing ” mangsa kang rekasa ” lan ngadhepi masalah abot utawa aniaya .

(src)="28"> We have proved beyond doubt that our faith and devotion are strong .
(trg)="30"> Ning , akèh - akèhé para sedulur uripé tentrem tanpa ana gangguan lan ora ngadhepi aniaya .

(src)="29"> Many of us , though , are now living in a relatively peaceful time , with no outright persecution .
(trg)="31"> Kaya wong Kristen ing jamané Paulus , awaké dhéwé kudu waspada .
(trg)="32"> Apa sebabé ?

(src)="30"> However , like the Christians in Paul’s day , none of us should lose sight of this key fact ​ — soon we will face the most challenging test of our faith ! ​ — Read Luke 21 : 34 - 36 .
(trg)="33"> Ora suwé manèh , awaké dhéwé bakal ngadhepi kasusahan sing paling gedhé , sing isa mbuktèkké imané awaké dhéwé tetep kuwat apa ora . ​ — Wacanen Lukas 21 : 34 - 36 .

(src)="31"> What is the yeartext for 2016 , and why is it appropriate ?
(trg)="34"> Apa ayat kanggo taun 2016 , lan apa sebabé kuwi cocog ?

(src)="32"> What will help us to prepare for the events that lie immediately ahead of us ?
(trg)="35"> Apa sing isa mbantu awaké dhéwé siap - siap ngadhepi kahanan mbésuk ?

(src)="36"> It admonishes us : “ Let your brotherly love continue . ” ​ — Heb .
(trg)="36"> Ing buku Ibrani , Paulus nulis kabèh sing isa mbantu iman dadi luwih kuwat .

(src)="37"> 13 : 1 .
(trg)="37"> Sing paling penting yakuwi Ibrani 13 : 1 , ” Rumatana katresnaning pasaduluran ! ”

(src)="38"> Our yeartext for 2016 : “ Let your brotherly love continue . ” ​ — Hebrews 13 : 1
(trg)="39"> Ayat taun 2016 : ” Rumatana katresnaning pasaduluran ! ” ​ — Ibrani 13 : 1

(src)="39"> What is brotherly love ?
(trg)="40"> Katresnaning pasaduluran kuwi apa ?

(src)="40"> What does it mean for us to show brotherly love ?
(trg)="41"> Katresnaning pasaduluran kuwi apa ?

(src)="41"> The Greek term used by Paul , phi·la·del·phiʹa , literally means “ affection for a brother . ”
(trg)="42"> Ing basa Yunani , kuwi maksudé ” nresnani seduluré ” .

(src)="42"> Brotherly love is the type of affection that involves a strong , warm , personal attachment , such as to a family member or a close friend .
(trg)="43"> Tresna marang sedulur kuwi rasa sing kuwat , lan gedhé antarané sedulur kandung utawa kanca cedhak .

(src)="43"> We do not pretend to be brothers and sisters ​ — we are brothers and sisters .
(trg)="44"> Awaké dhéwé ora mung éthok - éthok dadi sedulur , ning awaké dhéwé pancen sedulur .

(src)="44"> Our strong feeling of attachment to one another is summed up nicely in these words : “ In brotherly love have tender affection for one another .
(trg)="45"> Paulus kandha , ” Kowé padha tresna - tinresnanana dikaya sadulur , lan dadia tuladha ing bab ajèn - ingajènan . ”

(src)="45"> In showing honor to one another , take the lead . ”
(trg)="46"> Ayat kuwi nduduhké sepira kuwaté tresna marang sedulur .

(src)="46"> Combined with principled love , a·gaʹpe , this type of love promotes close companionship among God’s people .
(trg)="47"> Katresnaning pasaduluran sing dhasaré pathokané Alkitab , isa mbantu umaté Yéhuwah rukun lan akrab .

(src)="47"> How do true Christians understand the meaning of brotherly love ?
(trg)="48"> Apa sing dingertèni Seksi - Seksi Yéhuwah bab tegesé katresnaning pasaduluran ?

(src)="48"> “ ‘ Brotherly love , ’ ” according to one scholar , “ is a relatively rare term outside of Christian literature . ”
(trg)="49"> Tembung ” katresnaning pasaduluran ” akèh ditulis ing wacan Alkitab .

(src)="49"> In Judaism , the meaning of the word “ brother ” sometimes extended beyond those who were literally relatives , but its meaning was still restricted to those within the Jewish nation and did not include Gentiles .
(trg)="50"> Kanggoné wong - wong Yahudi mbiyèn , tembung ” sedulur ” biasané nduduhké hubungan keluarga lan kadhang kala sing dudu seduluré .
(trg)="51"> Ning , kuwi ora klebu wong sing dudu Yahudi .

(src)="50"> However , Christianity embraces all believers , no matter what their nationality .
(trg)="52"> Kanggoné Seksi - Seksi Yéhuwah , kabèh kuwi ” sedulur ” ora masalah saka endi asalé .

(src)="51"> As brothers , we have been taught by Jehovah to have brotherly affection for one another .
(trg)="53"> Yéhuwah mulang awaké dhéwé kon nresnani siji lan sijiné kaya seduluré dhéwé .

(src)="52"> But why is it vital that we let our brotherly love continue ?
(trg)="54"> Apa sebabé penting terus nduduhké katresnaning pasaduluran ?

(src)="53"> ( a ) What is the most important reason for us to show brotherly love ?
(trg)="55"> ( a ) Apa alesan sing paling penting nduduhké katresnaning pasaduluran ?

(src)="54"> ( b ) Give another reason why it is important to strengthen our affection for one another .
(trg)="56"> ( b ) Apa alesan liyané nèk nguwatké katresnan siji lan sijiné kuwi penting ?

(src)="55"> The simple answer is that Jehovah requires us to show brotherly love to one another .
(trg)="57"> Alesan sing paling penting nduduhké katresnaning pasaduluran , yaiku merga kuwi préntahé Yéhuwah .

(src)="56"> We cannot claim to love God and at the same time refuse to love our brothers .
(trg)="58"> Awaké dhéwé ora isa nresnani Yéhuwah , nèk ora gelem nresnani para sedulur .

(src)="57"> Additionally , we need one another .
(src)="58"> This is especially true in times of trouble .
(trg)="59"> Alesan liyané yaiku awaké dhéwé butuh para sedulur , utamané wektu ngadhepi masalah .

(src)="59"> Paul knew that some of the Hebrew Christians to whom he was writing would soon need to leave their homes and material possessions .
(trg)="60"> Wektu nulis surat kanggo wong Kristen ing Ibrani , Paulus ngerti nèk ora suwé manèh wong - wong kuwi bakal ninggalké omah lan bandhané .

(src)="60"> Jesus had described how difficult that time would be .
(trg)="61"> Yésus uga nggambarké kaya apa kahanan abot sing bakal kedadéan .

(src)="61"> So more than ever before , those Christians needed to strengthen their affection for one another . ​ — Rom .
(trg)="62"> Mula , sakdurungé kuwi dialami , wong - wong mau kudu nguwatké rasa tresna siji lan sijiné . ​ — Rm .

(src)="62"> 12 : 9 .
(trg)="63"> 12 : 9 .

(src)="63"> What do we need to do now before the start of the great tribulation ?
(trg)="64"> Apa sing dibutuhké sakdurungé sengsara gedhé ?

(src)="64"> Soon the destructive winds of the greatest tribulation of all time will be released .
(trg)="65"> Sengsara gedhé bakal dialami manungsa ora suwé manèh .

(src)="65"> Then , we will do well to heed this inspired counsel : “ Go , my people , enter your inner rooms , and shut your doors behind you .
(src)="66"> Hide yourself for a brief moment until the wrath has passed by . ”
(trg)="66"> Awaké dhéwé perlu manut karo kandhané Alkitab , ” Hé bangsaku , lumebua ing kamarmu , sawusé lumebu lawangé kancingen , ndhelika sadhéla tumeka sapungkuré bebendu . ”
(trg)="67"> ( Yé .

(src)="67"> These “ inner rooms ” may refer to our congregations .
(src)="68"> That is where we come together as brothers and sisters to worship Jehovah .
(trg)="68"> 26 : 20 ) ” Kamarmu ” kuwi maksudé jemaat , panggonan kanggo ngibadah bareng - bareng marang Yéhuwah karo para sedulur .

(src)="69"> But it is not enough for us to meet together regularly .
(trg)="69"> Ning , awaké dhéwé ora mung kumpul thok .

(src)="70"> Paul reminded the Hebrew Christians that they should use such occasions to incite one another “ to love and fine works . ”
(trg)="70"> Paulus ngélingké wong Kristen ing Ibrani kon nyemangati siji lan sijiné , bèn isa nduduhké katresnan lan apikan karo liyané .

(src)="71"> We need to develop our brotherly love now , for it will help us during whatever tests and trials we may face in the future .
(trg)="71"> Saiki , perlu nguwatké katresnaning pasaduluran , merga kuwi isa mbantu awaké dhéwé sabar ngadhepi masalah mbésuké .

(src)="72"> ( a ) What opportunities do we have to show brotherly love today ?
(trg)="72"> ( a ) Kesempatan apa sing ana saiki kanggo nduduhké katresnaning pasaduluran ?

(src)="73"> ( b ) Give examples of how Jehovah’s people have shown brotherly love .
(trg)="73"> ( b ) Wènèhana conto umaté Yéhuwah nduduhké katresnaning pasaduluran ?

(src)="74"> Even now , before the outbreak of the great tribulation , we have a strong need for brotherly love .
(trg)="74"> Akèh kesempatan kanggo nduduhké katresnaning pasaduluran sakdurungé mulainé sengsara gedhé .

(src)="75"> Many of our brothers have been adversely affected by earthquakes , floods , hurricanes , tsunamis , or other natural disasters .
(trg)="75"> Ana sedulur sing susah merga lindhu , banjir , lésus , tsunami , utawa bencana liyané .

(src)="76"> Some brothers are suffering because of opposition and persecution .
(trg)="76"> Sedulur liyané dianiaya .

(src)="77"> Added to all of this are the economic woes we experience daily as a result of living in this corrupt system of things .
(trg)="77"> Saben dina uga ana masalah ékonomi merga urip ing donya sing jahat .

(src)="78"> As such problems increase , so do our opportunities to demonstrate the depth of our brotherly affection .
(trg)="78"> Mula , saya akèh masalah sing diadhepi , saya akèh kesempatan nresnani siji lan sijiné .

(src)="79"> Even though “ the love of the greater number [ of people ] will grow cold , ” we need to prove that our brotherly love continues . ​ — Matt .
(trg)="79"> Senajan ing donya iki ora ana katresnan , awaké dhéwé perlu terus nduduhké katresnaning pasaduluran . — Deloken katrangan ing kaca 11 .

(src)="80"> 24 : 12 .
(src)="81"> What will we now examine ?
(trg)="80"> Apa sing saiki bakal dirembug ?

(src)="82"> Despite the number of problems we face , how can we make sure that we let our brotherly love continue ?
(trg)="81"> Senajan nduwé masalah , piyé carané terus nduduhké katresnaning pasaduluran ?

(src)="83"> In what ways can we prove that we have this type of affection for our brothers ?
(trg)="82"> Piyé carané mbuktèkké nèk awaké dhéwé nresnani para sedulur ?

(src)="84"> After stating , “ let your brotherly love continue , ” the apostle Paul lists several ways that Christians can do this .
(trg)="83"> Sakwisé kandha , ” rumatana katresnaning pasaduluran , ” rasul Paulus nyebutké cara - cara kanggo nduduhké katresnan iki .

(src)="85"> Let us now examine six of them .
(trg)="84"> Gatèkna nem cara sing arep dirembug .

(src)="86"> 11 , 12 .
(trg)="85"> 11 , 12 .

(src)="87"> What does it mean to show hospitality ?
(trg)="86"> Apa tegesé seneng nampa tamu ?

(src)="88"> ( See opening picture . )
(trg)="87"> ( Deloken gambar ing kaca 7 . )

(src)="89"> “ Do not forget hospitality . ”
(trg)="88"> ” Aja padha lali awèh pamondhokan marang wong . ”

(src)="90"> ( Read Hebrews 13 : 2 . )
(trg)="89"> ( Wacanen Ibrani 13 : 2 . )

(src)="91"> The original - language expression translated “ hospitality ” means “ kindness to strangers . ”
(trg)="90"> Apa tegesé ” awèh pamondhokan ” ?
(trg)="91"> Paulus nerangké nèk kuwi tegesé ” seneng nampa tamu ” .

(src)="92"> This phrase may remind us of the examples of Abraham and Lot .
(trg)="92"> Mbokmenawa iki ngélingké awaké dhéwé marang Abraham lan Lot sing nampa tamu sing ora dikenal .

(src)="93"> Both men showed kindness to visitors whom they did not know .
(trg)="93"> Akhiré , Abraham lan Lot ngerti nèk tamu kuwi para malaékat .

(src)="94"> These visitors turned out to be angels .
(trg)="96"> Piyé carané nduduhké nèk seneng nampa tamu ?

(src)="95"> Paul alludes to these examples in order to encourage the Hebrew Christians to show brotherly love by being hospitable .
(trg)="97"> Awaké dhéwé isa ngundang sedulur liyané kon mangan utawa ngobrol bareng nggedhèkké atiné .

(src)="96"> Do we extend hospitality to others by inviting them to our home for a meal or for some association and encouragement ?
(trg)="98"> Senajan ora kenal karo pinituwané wilayah lan bojoné , ning awaké dhéwé isa ngundang dhèwèké wektu nekani jemaat .

(src)="97"> We would not need to make elaborate or expensive arrangements to be considered hospitable ; nor would we want to invite only those who might repay us in some way .
(trg)="99"> Rasah répot - répot masak utawa ngetokké dhuwit akèh kanggo njajakké .

(src)="98"> Our goal should be to encourage , not to impress !
(trg)="100"> Tujuané yaiku kanggo nggedhèkké ati sedulur liyané , ora kanggo pamèr .

(src)="99"> Even though we may not know our circuit overseer and his wife very well , do we eagerly show them hospitality ?
(trg)="101"> Aja mung ngundang wong - wong sing isa mbales apiké awaké dhéwé .

(src)="100"> With our busy schedules as well as the stresses of daily living , how important it is that we “ do not forget hospitality ” !
