Mulimo wa Jesu mbouyaabusika kumamanino, wazumanana kubelesya zikozyanyo kutegwa ayubunune bubi bwabalembi alimwi abasilutwe babapaizi. Aboobo, bayanda kumujaya. (Luka 20:19) Pele Jesu tanamana kuyubununa bubi bwabo. Ulibajisi, aboobo waamba cikozyanyo acimbi eeci:

“Bwami bwakujulu inga bwakozyanisyigwa amwami iwakabamba pobwe lyabwiinga lyamwanaakwe musankwa. Mpoonya wakatuma bazike bakwe kuyakwiita baabo bakatambidwe kupobwe lyabwiinga, pele tiibakali kuyanda kuboola.” (Matayo 22:2, 3) Jesu watalika cikozyanyo cakwe kwiinda mukwaamba “Bwami bwakujulu.” Aboobo, cilisalede kuti “mwami” waambwa aawa ngu Jehova Leza. Ino mwana wamwami alimwi abaabo batambidwe kupobwe lyabwiinga mbaani? Tacikatazyi kuzyiba kuti mwana wamwami Mwana wa Jehova, ooyo ngomunya waamba cikozyanyo eeci, alimwi akuti aabo batambidwe mbabaabo ibayakuba a Mwana ooyo mu Bwami bwakujulu.

Ino mbaani bakusaanguna kutambwa? Ino mbaani Jesu alimwi abaapostolo bakwe mbobali kukambaukila makani aa Bwami? Bali kukambaukila ba Juda. (Matayo 10:6, 7; 15:24) Cisi eeci cakazumina cizuminano ca Mulawo mu 1513 B.C.E., aboobo cakaba cakusaanguna kuba acoolwe cakuba “bwami bwabapaizi.” (Kulonga 19:5-8) Pele, ino ndilili mubwini nobakali kuyakwiitwa “kupobwe lyabwiinga”? Cilisalede kuti bwiite oobu bwakacitwa mu 29 C.E. ciindi Jesu naakatalika kukambauka makani aa Bwami bwakujulu.

Ino bunji bwabana Israyeli bakabutambula buti bwiite oobu? Kweelana ambwaamba Jesu, “tiibakali kuyanda kuboola.” Ibunji bwabasololi babukombi alimwi abanamaleya tiibakamuzumina kuti ngo Mesiya akuti ngo Mwami uusalidwe aa Leza.

Nokuba boobo, Jesu watondezya kuti ba Juda bakali kuyakupegwa coolwe acimbi, waamba kuti: “Alimwi [mwami] wakatuma bazike abambi akubaambila kuti, ‘Amubaambile aabo batambidwe kuti: “Amubone! Ndabamba cakulya camasyikati, kwajaigwa ŋombe abanyama bangu baneneede, alimwi zintu zyoonse zyabambwa kale. Amuboole kupobwe lyabwiinga.”’ Pele kakunyina kubikkila  maano bakaunka kumbi, umwi kumuunda wakwe, umwi kumakwebo aakwe; aabo bakacaala, bakajata bazike bakwe akubasampaula kumane bakabajaya.” (Matayo 22:4-6) Eeci cileendelana acakali kuyakucitika ciindi mbungano ya Banakristo noyakali kuyootalisyigwa. Aciindi eeci, ba Juda bakacijisi coolwe cakuba mu Bwami, pele ibunji bwabo bakabukaka bwiite oobu, limwi bakasika mpobapenzya ‘bazike bamwami.’—Milimo 4:13-18; 7:54, 58.

Ino eeci cakapa kuti cisi eeci cisikilwe nzi? Jesu waamba kuti: “Mwami wakakalala akutuma basikalumamba bakwe, eelyo bakabanyonyoona bajayi aabo akuumpa munzi wabo.” (Matayo 22:7) Eeci cakabacitikila ba Juda mu 70 C.E. ciindi ba Roma nobakanyonyoona “munzi wabo,” wa Jerusalemu.

Sena caamba kuti akaambo kakuti bakakaka bwiite bwamwami, nkokuti taakwe umbi iwakali kuyootambwa? Kweelana acikozyanyo ca Jesu, tacili boobo pe. Wazumanana kwaamba kuti: “Mpoonya [mwami] wakaambila bazike bakwe kuti, ‘Pobwe lyabwiinga lyabambwa, pele aabo batambidwe tiibali kweelela pe. Aboobo kamuya kunzila zizwa mumunzi, mutambe kufwumbwa ngomuyoojana kuti aboole kupobwe lyabwiinga.’ Aboobo bazike aabo bakaunka mumigwagwa akubabunganya antoomwe boonse aabo mbobakajana, babi ababotu; eelyo ŋanda yabwiinga yakazula bantu aabo ibakali kulya.”—Matayo 22:8-10.

Aboobo, kumbele mwaapostolo Petro wakali kuyootalika kugwasya Bamasi—nkokuti bantu batali ba Juda bazyalwe naa basandule—kuba Banakristo bakasimpe. Mu 36 C.E., silutwe wabasikalumamba muna Roma Korneliyo alimwi amukwasyi wakwe bakatambula muuya wa Leza akuba acoolwe cakuba mu Bwami bwakujulu mbwaakaamba Jesu.—Milimo 10:1, 34-48.

Jesu watondezya kuti kumamanino tabali boonse baboola kupobwe ibayakweelela kutambulwa ‘amwami.’ Waamba kuti: “Ciindi mwami naakanjila kuti alingule beenzu, wakabona muntu umwi watakasamide cisani cabwiinga. Aboobo wakamubuzya kuti, ‘Ino musa wanjila buti omuno kotasamide cisani cabwiinga?’ Eelyo wakabula cakwaamba. Lino mwami wakaambila babelesi bakwe kuti, ‘Amumwaange kumaanza akumaulu mumusowele anze mumudima. Ooko nkwayoolilila akulumina ntwino.’ Mwami wakaita banji pele wakasala buyo basyoonto.”—Matayo 22:11-14.
