(src)="8"> Why did Paul write a letter to the Hebrew Christians ?
(trg)="8"> Bilong wanem Pol i raitim pas i go long ol Juda husat i kamap Kristen ?

(src)="9"> THE year was 61 C.E .
(src)="10"> The Christian congregations throughout Israel were enjoying a period of relative peace .
(trg)="9"> LONG yia 61 C.E . , ol kongrigesen Kristen long olgeta hap bilong Israel i stap bel isi .

(src)="11"> Although the apostle Paul was a prisoner in Rome , he was hoping to be released soon .
(trg)="10"> Maski aposel Pol i stap kalabus long Rom , em i bilip olsem klostu nau em bai lusim kalabus .

(src)="12"> His companion Timothy had just been released , and they were planning to visit their Christian brothers in Judea .
(trg)="11"> Wanwok bilong em Timoti i lusim kalabus , na ol i wokim plen long i go visitim ol wanbilip Kristen long Judia .

(src)="13"> However , in five years ’ time , Jerusalem would be “ surrounded by encamped armies , ” just as Jesus had prophesied .
(trg)="12"> Tasol bihain long 5 - pela yia , “ ol ami i kam banisim Jerusalem , ” na dispela i truim tok profet bilong Jisas .

(src)="14"> Christians in Judea , and especially those living in Jerusalem , would have to act decisively .
(trg)="13"> Ol Kristen long Judia , na moa yet em ol Kristen i stap long Jerusalem , ol i mas kirap kwik long mekim sampela samting .

(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)="14"> Jisas i bin givim tok lukaut olsem ol i mas hariap long ranawe taim ol i lukim ol dispela samting i stat long kamap . — Luk 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)="15"> Insait long 28 yia kirap long taim Jisas i mekim dispela tok profet , ol Juda husat i kamap Kristen na ol i stap long Israel , ol i bin sanap strong na karim hevi taim ol man i birua long ol na mekim nogut tru long ol .

(src)="17"> Yet , Paul knew that they were about to be confronted with one of the most challenging tests of their faith .
(trg)="16"> Tasol Pol i save olsem wanpela bikpela hevi tru bai kamap na traim bilip bilong ol .

(src)="18"> He wanted them to be prepared for whatever might come their way .
(trg)="17"> Em i laik bai ol i redi long karim olgeta kain hevi i painim ol long bihain .

(src)="19"> They would need exceptional endurance and faith ​ — faith strong enough to preserve their lives .
(trg)="18"> Ol i mas i gat pasin bilong sanap strong na karim hevi na ol i mas i gat strongpela bilip — strongpela bilip bai lukautim laip bilong ol .

(src)="20"> ( Read Hebrews 10 : 36 - 39 . )
(trg)="19"> ( Ritim Hibru 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)="20"> Olsem na spirit bilong Jehova i kirapim Pol long raitim pas i go long ol bratasista , na tokim ol long samting ol i mas mekim bilong lukautim ol yet long ol samting ol i nidim .

(src)="22"> That letter is now known as the book of Hebrews .

(src)="23"> Why should we be interested in the book of Hebrews ?
(trg)="22"> Bilong wanem yumi mas save long ol tok i stap long Buk Hibru ?

(trg)="24"> Bilong wanem ?

(src)="26"> Because we find ourselves in a similar situation .
(trg)="25"> Long wanem , yumi tu i bungim wankain hevi long nau .

(src)="27"> During these “ critical times hard to deal with , ” Jehovah’s people have faced all types of opposition and persecution .

(src)="29"> Many of us , though , are now living in a relatively peaceful time , with no outright persecution .
(trg)="28"> Tasol planti bilong yumi i stap gut na ol birua i no mekim nogut long yumi .

(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)="29"> Maski i olsem , yumi olgeta i mas bihainim pasin bilong ol Kristen long taim bilong Pol , na oltaim yumi mas tingim olsem klostu nau wanpela bikpela hevi tru bai kamap na traim bilip bilong yumi ! — Ritim Luk 21 : 34 - 36 .

(src)="32"> What will help us to prepare for the events that lie immediately ahead of us ?
(trg)="31"> ( b ) Bilong wanem i stret long dispela skripsa i stap olsem yiateks ?

(src)="33"> In the book of Hebrews , Paul outlines many things that will help us to strengthen our faith .
(trg)="33"> Long Buk Hibru , Pol i kolim planti samting we inap strongim bilip bilong yumi .

(src)="34"> One essential thing is highlighted in the first verse of the last chapter of that letter .
(trg)="34"> Wanpela bikpela samting em Pol i stori long en i stap long namba 1 ves bilong laspela sapta .

(src)="35"> That verse has been selected to be the yeartext for 2016 .
(trg)="35"> Dispela tok i stap olsem yiateks bilong 2016 .

(src)="36"> It admonishes us : “ Let your brotherly love continue . ” ​ — Heb .
(trg)="36"> Em i tok : “ Wok yet long laikim ol arapela olsem ol i brata bilong yupela . ” — Hib .

(trg)="38"> Yiateks bilong 2016 : “ Wok yet long laikim ol arapela olsem ol i brata bilong yupela . ” — Hibru 13 : 1

(src)="39"> What is brotherly love ?
(trg)="39"> Olsem wanem yumi inap soim olsem yumi laikim ol narapela olsem ol i brata tru bilong yumi ?

(src)="40"> What does it mean for us to show brotherly love ?
(trg)="40"> Olsem wanem yumi inap soim olsem yumi laikim ol narapela olsem ol i brata tru bilong yumi ?

(src)="41"> The Greek term used by Paul , phi·la·del·phiʹa , literally means “ affection for a brother . ”
(trg)="41"> Tok Grik em Pol i yusim long kolim dispela pasin em phi·la·del·phiʹa , na mining bilong en em “ laikim tumas brata . ”

(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)="42"> Dispela pasin laikim i wankain long strongpela pasin laikim i stap namel long ol wanfamili na ol gutpela pren .
(trg)="43"> Yumi no ken giaman long i stap olsem ol bratasista , nogat .

(src)="43"> We do not pretend to be brothers and sisters ​ — we are brothers and sisters .
(trg)="44"> Yumi mas soim klia olsem tru tru yumi stap olsem ol bratasista .

(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"> Pasin laikim bilong yumi i stret wantaim dispela tok bilong Baibel , olsem : “ Yupela i mas sori na laikim tumas ol arapela wanbilip wankain olsem brata i save laikim tumas brata .

(src)="45"> In showing honor to one another , take the lead . ”
(trg)="46"> Yupela i mas go pas long givim ona long ol arapela wanbilip . ”

(src)="46"> Combined with principled love , a·gaʹpe , this type of love promotes close companionship among God’s people .
(trg)="47"> Na tu , yumi gat narapela pasin laikim , em pasin a·gaʹpe , na dispela kain pasin laikim i save strongim pasin pren namel long ol manmeri bilong God .

(src)="47"> How do true Christians understand the meaning of brotherly love ?
(trg)="48"> Ol trupela Kristen i holim wanem tingting long pasin bilong laikim ol narapela olsem brata tru bilong ol ?

(src)="48"> “ ‘ Brotherly love , ’ ” according to one scholar , “ is a relatively rare term outside of Christian literature . ”
(trg)="49"> Wanpela saveman i tok , ol litresa bilong ol Kristen tasol i save stori long pasin bilong “ ‘ laikim tumas ol arapela wanbilip olsem brata i save laikim tumas brata , ’ na ol narapela litresa i no save stori long dispela pasin . ”

(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"> Long lotu Juda , dispela tok “ brata ” i makim ol wanfamili , na em inap makim tu ol arapela manmeri bilong lain Juda , tasol dispela tok i no makim ol manmeri bilong ol narapela lain .

(src)="50"> However , Christianity embraces all believers , no matter what their nationality .
(trg)="51"> Long lotu Kristen , dispela tok “ brata ” i makim olgeta bilipman , maski ol i bilong wanem wanem kantri .

(src)="51"> As brothers , we have been taught by Jehovah to have brotherly affection for one another .
(trg)="52"> Yumi stap olsem lain brata , na Jehova i skulim yumi long laikim narapela narapela olsem yumi laikim brata tru bilong yumi .

(src)="52"> But why is it vital that we let our brotherly love continue ?
(trg)="53"> Bilong wanem em i bikpela samting long yumi mas wok yet long laikim ol narapela olsem brata tru bilong yumi ?

(src)="53"> ( a ) What is the most important reason for us to show brotherly love ?
(trg)="54"> ( a ) Bilong wanem em i bikpela samting long yumi mas laikim ol narapela olsem ol i brata tru bilong yumi ?

(src)="54"> ( b ) Give another reason why it is important to strengthen our affection for one another .
(trg)="55"> ( b ) Wanem narapela samting i mas kirapim yumi long strongim pasin bilong yumi long laikim tumas narapela narapela ?

(src)="55"> The simple answer is that Jehovah requires us to show brotherly love to one another .
(trg)="56"> Jehova i laik bai yumi mas laikim narapela narapela olsem yumi laikim brata tru bilong yumi .

(src)="56"> We cannot claim to love God and at the same time refuse to love our brothers .
(src)="57"> Additionally , we need one another .
(trg)="57"> Sapos yumi tok olsem yumi laikim God , orait yumi mas laikim tu ol arapela bratasista .

(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)="58"> Yumi stap bilong sambai long narapela narapela , na moa yet long taim bilong hevi .

(src)="60"> Jesus had described how difficult that time would be .
(trg)="59"> Pol i save olsem i no longtaim , hevi bai kamap na sampela Kristen bilong lain Juda bai lusim haus na mani kago bilong ol .

(src)="61"> So more than ever before , those Christians needed to strengthen their affection for one another . ​ — Rom .
(trg)="60"> Jisas i bin stori long ol bikpela hevi bai kamap .

(src)="62"> 12 : 9 .
(trg)="61"> Olsem na ol Kristen bilong lain Juda i mas strongim pasin bilong ol long laikim tumas narapela narapela . — Rom 12 : 9 .

(src)="63"> What do we need to do now before the start of the great tribulation ?
(trg)="62"> Long nau , yumi mas mekim wanem paslain long traipela hevi tru i kirap ?

(src)="64"> Soon the destructive winds of the greatest tribulation of all time will be released .
(trg)="63"> Klostu nau ol ensel bai opim han na lusim ol win bilong kamapim bagarap bilong traipela hevi tru .

(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 .
(trg)="64"> Long dispela taim , yumi bai bihainim dispela tok : “ Yupela ol manmeri bilong mi , yupela go insait long ol haus bilong yupela na pasim ol dua .

(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"> Em ples we yumi save bung wantaim olsem ol bratasista na lotuim Jehova .

(src)="69"> But it is not enough for us to meet together regularly .
(trg)="69"> Tasol yumi mas mekim sampela samting moa .

(src)="70"> Paul reminded the Hebrew Christians that they should use such occasions to incite one another “ to love and fine works . ”
(trg)="70"> Pol i tokim ol Kristen bilong lain Juda olsem , taim ol i bung wantaim , ol i mas kirapim narapela narapela “ long mekim pasin laikim na mekim ol gutpela wok . ”

(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)="74"> Long nau tu , paslain long traipela hevi tru i kirap , yumi mas laikim narapela narapela olsem yumi laikim brata tru bilong yumi .
