Nginibekele isibonelo, khona nizakwenza lokho enginenzeleko.’ (Jwa. 13:12-15) Ngokutjengisa isenzo esinjalo somsebenzi ophasi, uJesu wanikela abapostoli bakhe isifundo esiqakathekileko esizokunzinza khulu emikhumbulwenabo begodu sizobakhuthaza bona bathobeke ngokukhamba kwesikhathi.

Ngakelinye ihlangothi, uJesu akhenge anganeliseki ngesikhundla sakhe asinikelweko ezulwini namtjhana afune ukulisebenzisa kumbi igunya lakhe. Njengengilozi ekulu uMikhayeli, uJesu akhenge eqe igunya lakhe ‘nekaphikisana noDeveli ngesidumbu sakaMosisi.’ Kunalokho, iNdodana kaZimu yatjengisa ukuthobeka nesizotha.

Endaweni yalokho, ngokuzinikela wahlukana nakho koke anakho, wathatha ijamo lenceku waba mumuntu, wabonakala anesimo sobuntu.”—Fil. 2:6, 7.

Khuyini ezokwenzeka ekupheleni kokuBusa kwakhe kwemiNyaka eyiKulungwana lokha iKosi enguMesiya ‘sele itjhabalalise yoke imimoya ebusako, nephethe ubukhosi, namandla’? Izokutjengisa ukuthobeka?
