 ISIHLOKO ESIYINHLOKO | KUNGANI UJESU AHLUPHEKA FUTHI WAFA

Ingabe Kwenzeka Ngempela?

Ingabe Kwenzeka Ngempela?

Ngentwasahlobo ka-33 C.E., uJesu waseNarazetha wabulawa. Wayebekwe icala lokukhuthaza abantu ukuba bavukele umbuso, washaywa ngesihluku futhi wabethelwa esigxotsheni. Wafa ezwa ubuhlungu obukhulu. Kodwa uNkulunkulu wamvusa futhi ngemva kwezinsuku ezingu-40 uJesu wanyukela ezulwini.

Lokhu kulandisa okungavamile kutholakala emaVangelini amane emiBhalo yamaKristu yesiGreki, ngokuvamile abizwa ngokuthi iTestamente Elisha. Ingabe lezo zinto zenzeka ngempela? Lona umbuzo obaluleke kakhulu. Uma zingazange zenzeke, lokho bekuyosho ukuthi ukholo lwamaKristu alusekelwe ndawo futhi ithemba lokuphila phakade ePharadesi ngeke lifezeke. (1 Korinte 15:14) Ngakolunye uhlangothi, uma lezo zenzakalo zenzeka ngempela, lokho kusho ukuthi abantu banekusasa eliqhakazile, nawe ongahlanganyela kulo. Pho, ingabe ukulandisa kwamaVangeli kuyiqiniso noma kuyinganekwane?

OKUBONISWA AMAQINISO

Ngokungafani nezinganekwane ezithandwayo, amaVangeli alotshwa ngokunembile futhi kwanakisiswa ngisho nemininingwane emincane. Ngokwesibonelo, amaVangeli aqukethe amagama ezindawo zangempela, eziningi zazo ongazivakashela nanamuhla. Akhuluma ngabantu abangokoqobo, izazi zomlando eziye zalandisa ngabo.—Luka 3:1, 2, 23.

 Ababhali abaziwayo bangekhulu lokuqala nelesibili leminyaka bakhuluma ngoJesu. * Indlela afa ngayo echazwe emaVangelini, ivumelana nendlela amaRoma ayebulala ngayo izelelesi ngaleso sikhathi. Ngaphezu kwalokho, izenzakalo zilandiswe njengoba zinjalo, kwangasala lutho—kuze kulandiswe nangezinto ezimbi ezazenziwa abalandeli bakaJesu. (Mathewu 26:56; Luka 22:24-26; Johane 18:10, 11) Konke lokhu kukufakazela ngokuqinile ukuthi abalobi bamaVangeli babethembekile futhi benembile kulokho ababekuloba ngoJesu.

KUTHIWANI NGOKUVUSWA KUKAJESU?

Nakuba abaningi bevuma ukuthi uJesu waphila futhi wafa, abanye bayakungabaza ukuvuswa kwakhe. Ngisho nabaphostoli bakhe abazange bayikholelwe imibiko yokuqala yokuthi uvusiwe. (Luka 24:11) Nokho, lokho kungabaza kwaphela lapho bona nabanye abaphostoli bebona uJesu ovusiwe ngezikhathi ezahlukahlukene. Empeleni, ngesinye isikhathi, wabonakala kubantu abangaphezu kuka-500 ngesikhathi esisodwa.—1 Korinte 15:6.

Bezibeka engozini yokuboshwa noma yokubulawa, ngesibindi abafundi bamemezela ngokuvuswa kukaJesu kubo bonke—ngisho nakulabo abambulala. (IzEnzo 4:1-3, 10, 19, 20; 5:27-32) Ingabe abafundi abaningi kangaka babengaba nesibindi esikhulu kangaka ukube babengaqiniseki ukuthi uJesu uvusiwe ngempela? Empeleni ukwazi ukuthi uJesu wavuswa, yikona ngokuyinhloko okuye kwabangela ukuba ubuKristu bube nethonya emhlabeni kusukela ngaleso sikhathi kuze kube namuhla.

Ukulandisa kwamaVangeli ngokufa nokuvuswa kukaJesu kusinikeza ubufakazi obuqand’ ikhanda bokuthi kunembile ngokomlando. Ukukufunda ngokucophelela kuzokuqinisekisa ngokuthi lezi zenzakalo zenzeka ngempela. Ukuqonda ukuthi kungani lezi zenzakalo zenzeka kungakwenza uqiniseke ngisho nakakhulu. Isihloko esilandelayo sizochaza.
