But how is he going to arrive? 為了找到答案，路加把我們帶離耶路撒冷 Well to find out, Luke takes us out 然後來到一個小鎮 of Jerusalem and then up into a 一個叫作加利利的偏僻地方 a small town in the hills of an 那裡有一位年輕女子 out of the way region called Galilee. 名叫米利暗，我們一般叫她馬利亞 There we find a young woman 她已經訂了婚 named Mariam or we call her, Mary. 有一個天使向馬利亞顯現 She was engaged to be married 說她將要有一個兒子 and then an angel appears to Mary 她要把他起名叫耶穌 saying that she's going to have a son. 在希伯來語就是"神拯救"的意思 She's supposed to name Him, Jesus, 他將會成為一個如大衛般的王 which in Hebrew means, the Lord saves. 將會永遠統治神的子民 And He will be a King like David 然後馬利亞問 who will rule over God's people forever. "好的，但這怎麼可能？ And then Mary asks, 因為我是一個處女。＂ "Okay, well, how is this possible 她被告知，聖靈會工作 because I'm a virgin?" 就是在創世記第一章中， 從黑暗中帶來生命和光的聖靈 And she's told that the same 也將會在她的腹中造出生命 Holy Spirit that brought life and light 神將要把自己限制成人 out of darkness in Genesis, Chapter 1, 透過彌賽亞的受孕和出生 is going to generate life inside her womb. 所以馬利亞，一位在偏遠地區的無名女孩 God is about to bind Himself 成為了君王的未來母親 to humanity through the conception 就是這樣奇妙。她甚至唱了一首歌， and the birth of the Messiah. 關於她自己的社會地位的顛覆 And so Mary, goes from some back woods 也指向一個將要來的更大動盪 no name girl to the future mother of the King. 透過祂的兒子，神要把統治者從他們的寶座拉下來 Exactly. In fact, sings a song about 並把貧窮和謙卑的人升高 how this reversal of her own social status 他將要顛覆整個世界的秩序 points to a greater upheaval to come. 然後，當馬利亞真的懷孕時，她和她的未婚夫約瑟 Through her Son, God's going to bring down 必須下到去伯利恆 rulers from their thrones and exalt the poor and the humble. 因為那時羅馬王國頒怖一個新的稅法 He's going to turn the whole world order upside down. 所有人必須回到他們家鄉報名上冊 So, when Mary was really pregnant, she and her fiancé, Jospeh, 那時在伯利恆有很多訪客 had to go down to Bethlehem. 他們找不到任何一間客房 There was a decree across the Roman Empire about new taxes. 而他們所能找到的唯一地方，是一個動物睡覺的地方 And so everybody had to go get registered in the town of their family line. 現在，在他們附近，有一些牧羊人在牧羊 There was so many visitors in Bethlehem. 一個天使向他們顯現，這當然把他們嚇壞了 They can't find a guest room. 但他們即將要慶祝，因為今晚在伯利恆， 救主將要誕生 And so the only place they can find, is a spot where animals sleep. 他們被告知要去尋找這嬰孩 Now, nearby, were some shepherds with their flocks. 而他們將會知道他就是彌賽亞， 因為他將會被包裹，躺在一個骯髒的餵飼槽中 And an angel appears, which, of course, freaks them out. 然後這些自己也不是很乾淨的牧羊人， 他們動身去尋找到新生兒耶穌 But, they're to celebrate because tonight in Bethlehem, a Savior has been born. 耶穌就在這昏暗的地方，令他們感到十分驚訝 They're told to go and find this baby. 他們回家時思索：這個世界將要發生什麼事？ And they'll know that it's the Messiah because He's going to be wrapped up and laying in a grimy feeding trough. 這一切都太怪了。我的意思是， 如果神真的要來拯救世界，這不是你所預期的方式 Then these shepherds, who aren't very clean themselves, they go and find the newborn Jesus, in this really dingy place and their minds are blown. 救主出生在牲畜之間，母親是一個青少女，祝賀的是一群無名的牧羊人 They go home wondering, 'What on Earth is about to happen?' 沒錯，很怪吧！我的意思是，在路加的故事中，所有事情是倒過來的，而這就是重點所在。 And this is all really strange. I mean, if God's really coming to save the world, this isn't how you would expect Him to arrive. 路加要表達的是，神的國度首先揭示於這些骯髒的地方，在窮人的中間。 Born in an animal shelter to a teenage girl, celebrated by no-name shepherds. 因為耶穌所帶來的救恩，即將顛覆我們這個世界的秩序。 Exactly! I mean, everything is backwards in Luke's story and that's the point. He is showing how God's Kingdom was first revealed in these dirty places, among the poor because Jesus is here to bring salvation by turning our world order upside down.
