(src)="8"> Why did Paul write a letter to the Hebrew Christians ?
(trg)="8"> Engkai maka itulis rasul Paulus sada surat man kalak Kristen i Heber ?

(src)="9"> THE year was 61 C.E .
(src)="10"> The Christian congregations throughout Israel were enjoying a period of relative peace .
(trg)="9"> I BAS tahun 61 M , runggun - runggun i bas Israel ngenanami kedamen .

(src)="11"> Although the apostle Paul was a prisoner in Rome , he was hoping to be released soon .
(trg)="10"> Amin pe rasul Paulus paksa ipenjaraken i Roma , ngarap kal ia gelah mis ibebasken .

(src)="12"> His companion Timothy had just been released , and they were planning to visit their Christian brothers in Judea .
(trg)="11"> Timotius , teman seperdalanenna mbaru denga ibebasken i bas penjara nari , janah ngarap kal kalak e duana banci ndahi turang seninana i Judea .

(src)="13"> However , in five years ’ time , Jerusalem would be “ surrounded by encamped armies , ” just as Jesus had prophesied .
(trg)="12"> Lima tahun kenca si e , kalak Kristen i Judea , khususna si tading i Jerusalem arus erbahan keputusen si penting .
(trg)="13"> Engkai ?

(src)="14"> Christians in Judea , and especially those living in Jerusalem , would have to act decisively .
(trg)="14"> Jesus nggo mpebetehken man ajar - ajarna , adi nggo idah kalak e pagi Jerusalem ikepung tentera , kalak enda arus ngongsi . ​ — Luk .

(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)="15"> 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)="16"> Nggo 28 tahun dekahna kenca Jesus mereken persinget e man ajar - ajarna .

(src)="17"> Yet , Paul knew that they were about to be confronted with one of the most challenging tests of their faith .
(trg)="17"> I bas masa si e , kalak Kristen i Israel tetap setia amin gia ngenanami melala kiniseran ras penganiayan .

(src)="18"> He wanted them to be prepared for whatever might come their way .
(trg)="18"> Tapi ate Paulus nikapken kalak enda nandangi kai si terjadi i bas wari si pepagi .

(src)="19"> They would need exceptional endurance and faith ​ — faith strong enough to preserve their lives .
(trg)="19"> Kentisik nari kalak enda ngadapi ujian kiniteken si mbelinna kal .

(src)="20"> ( Read Hebrews 10 : 36 - 39 . )
(trg)="21"> ( Oge Heber 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)="22"> Emaka ipebetehken Jahwe man Paulus guna mpersingeti turang seninana .

(src)="22"> That letter is now known as the book of Hebrews .
(trg)="23"> Surat enda igelari kitap Heber , enda ibahan guna mpegegehi kalak e kerna kai si nandangi terjadi .

(src)="23"> Why should we be interested in the book of Hebrews ?
(trg)="24"> Engkai maka perlu sipelajari kitap Heber ?

(src)="24"> All of us today should be interested in what Paul wrote to those first - century Hebrew Christians .
(trg)="25"> Selaku umat Dibata jaman modern , kita pe perlu mpelajari kitap Heber .

(src)="25"> Why ?
(trg)="26"> Engkai ?

(src)="26"> Because we find ourselves in a similar situation .
(trg)="27"> Erkiteken keadanta si gundari mirip ras kalak Kristen i Judea .

(src)="27"> During these “ critical times hard to deal with , ” Jehovah’s people have faced all types of opposition and persecution .
(trg)="28"> Kita nggeluh i bas ’ wari - wari pendungi si mbue kiniseran , ’ janah melala si tetap setia i bas ngadapi percuban ntah pe tantangen .

(src)="28"> We have proved beyond doubt that our faith and devotion are strong .
(trg)="29"> Tapi enterem i bas kita ngenanami situasi si aman janah la ngenanami penganiayan .

(src)="29"> Many of us , though , are now living in a relatively peaceful time , with no outright persecution .
(trg)="30"> Amin gia bage , bali bagi kalak Kristen i bas jaman Paulus kita perlu erjaga - jaga .
(trg)="31"> Engkai ?

(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)="32"> Erkiteken kentisik nari , kita ngadapi sada ujian kiniteken si mbelinna kal ! ​ — Oge Lukas 21 : 34 - 36 .

(src)="31"> What is the yeartext for 2016 , and why is it appropriate ?

(src)="32"> What will help us to prepare for the events that lie immediately ahead of us ?
(trg)="34"> Kai nge si banci nampati kita guna nikapken diri nandangi kai si terjadi i bas wari si pepagi ?

(src)="33"> In the book of Hebrews , Paul outlines many things that will help us to strengthen our faith .
(trg)="35"> Paulus mpebetehken melala cara si banci mpegegehi kinitekenta .

(src)="36"> It admonishes us : “ Let your brotherly love continue . ” ​ — Heb .
(src)="37"> 13 : 1 .
(trg)="36"> Salah sada persinget si pentingna kal itulis i bas Heber 13 : 1 .

(src)="38"> Our yeartext for 2016 : “ Let your brotherly love continue . ” ​ — Hebrews 13 : 1
(trg)="39"> Ayat tahunenta i bas tahun 2016 : ” Tetaplah kam sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina i bas Kristus . ” ​ — Heber 13 : 1

(src)="39"> What is brotherly love ?
(trg)="40"> Kai ertina sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina ?

(src)="40"> What does it mean for us to show brotherly love ?
(trg)="41"> Kai ertina sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina ?

(src)="41"> The Greek term used by Paul , phi·la·del·phiʹa , literally means “ affection for a brother . ”
(trg)="42"> Kata enda , i bas cakap Junani nari si ertina ” kekelengen man senina . ”

(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"> Sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina eme sada perasan dame ras aman , si lit i bas keluarga ntah pe i bas teman si rembak ras kita .

(src)="43"> We do not pretend to be brothers and sisters ​ — we are brothers and sisters .
(trg)="44"> La sipekulah - kulah banta jadi turang ras senina , tapi kita tuhu - tuhu turang senina .

(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"> Nina Paulus , ” Sikeleng - kelengenlah kam bagi si ersenina .

(src)="45"> In showing honor to one another , take the lead . ”
(trg)="46"> Silebe - lebenlah kam i bas mpehaga teman . ”

(src)="46"> Combined with principled love , a·gaʹpe , this type of love promotes close companionship among God’s people .
(trg)="48"> Kekelengen bagi kalak si ersenina si erpalasken prinsip - prinsip Kristen ( kekelengen a·gaʹpe ) , nampati juak - juak Dibata gelah rembak sada ras si debanna janah ersada .

(src)="47"> How do true Christians understand the meaning of brotherly love ?
(trg)="49"> Menurut kalak Kristen si tuhu - tuhu ise nge ” seninanta ” si arus sikelengi ?

(src)="48"> “ ‘ Brotherly love , ’ ” according to one scholar , “ is a relatively rare term outside of Christian literature . ”
(trg)="50"> Kata ” sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina ” rusur sioge i bas publikasi Kristenta .

(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)="51"> I bas jaman kalak Jahudi si nai , kata ” senina ” rusur igunaken man keluarga janah maun - maun man kalak si labo keluarga .
(trg)="52"> La pernah igunaken man kalak si la Jahudi .

(src)="50"> However , Christianity embraces all believers , no matter what their nationality .
(trg)="53"> Tapi , selaku kalak Kristen situhu - tuhu , ” seninanta ” eme kerina kalak Kristen situhu - tuhu , la soal suku kai ia .

(src)="51"> As brothers , we have been taught by Jehovah to have brotherly affection for one another .
(trg)="54"> Jahwe merentahken kita gelah sikeleng - kelengen sada ras si debanna selaku turang ras senina .

(src)="52"> But why is it vital that we let our brotherly love continue ?
(trg)="55"> Tapi ngkai maka penting terus sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina ?

(src)="53"> ( a ) What is the most important reason for us to show brotherly love ?
(trg)="56"> ( a ) Engkai maka penting ncidahken kekelengen bagi kalak si ersenina ?

(src)="54"> ( b ) Give another reason why it is important to strengthen our affection for one another .
(trg)="57"> ( b ) Bereken alasen si deban engkai maka penting mpebelin kekelengenta man sada ras si debanna .

(src)="55"> The simple answer is that Jehovah requires us to show brotherly love to one another .
(trg)="58"> Alasen si penting ngkai arus sicidahken maka kita sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina , erkiteken Jahwe si nuruh kita ngelakokenca .

(src)="56"> We cannot claim to love God and at the same time refuse to love our brothers .
(trg)="59"> Kita la banci tuhu - tuhu ngkelengi Jahwe adi la sikelengi turang seninanta .

(src)="57"> Additionally , we need one another .
(src)="58"> This is especially true in times of trouble .
(trg)="60"> Alasen si deban erkiteken kita merluken sada ras si debanna , khususna i bas masa si mesera pagi .

(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)="61"> Paksa itulis Paulus surat man kalak Kristen Heber , ietehna maka kentisik nari piga - piga i bas kalak e arus nadingken rumahna bage pe ertana .

(src)="60"> Jesus had described how difficult that time would be .
(trg)="62"> Jesus nggo nuriken uga serana pagi paksa si e .
(trg)="63"> ( Mar .

(src)="61"> So more than ever before , those Christians needed to strengthen their affection for one another . ​ — Rom .
(trg)="64"> 13 : 14 - 18 ; Luk .
(trg)="65"> 21 : 21 - 23 ) Sope lenga reh kiniseran e , kalak Kristen perlu mpebelin kekelengenna man sada ras si debanna . ​ — Rom .

(src)="62"> 12 : 9 .
(trg)="66"> 12 : 9 .

(src)="63"> What do we need to do now before the start of the great tribulation ?
(trg)="67"> Sope lenga reh kiniseran si mbelin , kai nge si perlu silakoken ?

(src)="64"> Soon the destructive winds of the greatest tribulation of all time will be released .
(trg)="68"> Kiniseran si mbelinna i bas sejarah manusia nandangi reh .
(trg)="69"> ( Mar .

(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)="70"> 13 : 19 ; Ket .
(trg)="71"> 7 : 1 - 3 ) Emaka , perlu sipatuhi pedah enda , ” O bangsangKu , bengketlah ku rumahndu , janah erukilah man bandu .

(src)="66"> Hide yourself for a brief moment until the wrath has passed by . ”
(trg)="72"> Cebuni kam lebe kentisik seh pernembeh ate TUHAN enggo ngadi . ”
(trg)="73"> ( Jes .

(src)="67"> These “ inner rooms ” may refer to our congregations .
(trg)="74"> 26 : 20 ) ” Rumah ” ertina runggun - runggun Kristenta .

(src)="68"> That is where we come together as brothers and sisters to worship Jehovah .
(trg)="75"> Ije kita banci nembah Jahwe radu ras turang seninanta .

(src)="69"> But it is not enough for us to meet together regularly .
(trg)="76"> Tapi la bias reh ku perpulungen saja .

(src)="70"> Paul reminded the Hebrew Christians that they should use such occasions to incite one another “ to love and fine works . ”
(trg)="77"> Paulus mpersingeti kalak Kristen Heber gelah mpegegehi sada ras si debanna guna nehken keleng ate ras ndalanken si mehuli .

(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)="78"> Gundari , kita perlu sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina lebih asa si nggo - nggona , gelah banci kita megenggeng ngadapi penganiayan si terjadi i bas wari si pepagi .

(src)="72"> ( a ) What opportunities do we have to show brotherly love today ?
(trg)="79"> ( a ) Kesempaten kai si lit i bas kita gundari guna ncidahken maka kita sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina ?

(src)="73"> ( b ) Give examples of how Jehovah’s people have shown brotherly love .
(trg)="80"> ( b ) Bereken contoh uga juak - juak Jahwe ncidahken maka ia sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina .

(src)="74"> Even now , before the outbreak of the great tribulation , we have a strong need for brotherly love .
(trg)="81"> Sope lenga reh kiniseran si mbelin , melala kesempatenta ncidahken maka kita sikeleng - kelengen bagi kalak si ersenina .

(src)="75"> Many of our brothers have been adversely affected by earthquakes , floods , hurricanes , tsunamis , or other natural disasters .
(trg)="82"> Melala turang seninanta ngenanami kiniseran erkiteken linur , banjir , badai , tsunami , ntah pe bencana alam si debanna .

(src)="76"> Some brothers are suffering because of opposition and persecution .
(trg)="83"> Piga - piga turang seninanta ianiaya .

(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)="84"> Janah perban kita nggeluh i doni si serbut enda , kita ngenanami kesuliten ekonomi .

(src)="78"> As such problems increase , so do our opportunities to demonstrate the depth of our brotherly affection .
(trg)="85"> Tapi reh buena perbeben turang seninanta , reh buena kesempatenta i bas ncidahken kekelengenta man bana .
