Sesitshilo ukuthi kwasekuqalekeni uYesu wayeselekho ekunye noThixo. Yena udale konke okukhoyo kwindalo yonke. Wenze bonke abantu nazo zonke izilwanyana ezisehlabathini. Indoda yokuqala nguAdam, yena owabiza umfazi wokuqala ngelithi unguEfa. Ngelo xesha bekungekho ukugula nokufa. Bekungekho nto imbi ikhohlakeleyo, kungekho ukubulala nobudlobongela nokuntshontsha, zingekho iintlungu neentsizi. Konke bekulungile, kunjengoko kudalwe nguThixo.

Abantu bokuqala, uAdam noEfa, uThixo ubahlalise kumyezo omhle. Lo myezo wawenziwe nguThixo ngokwakhe. Wawunemithi ethwala iziqhamo ezimnandi. Kodwa esidikidikini somyezo bekukho umthi abantu ababeyalwe ukuba bangatyi kwiziqhamo zawo. Ke uAdam noEfa bamthobela uThixo, bakwenza oko bakuyaliweyo. Kodwa ngenye imini uSathana wazenza inyoka, waya kungena phaya emyezweni apho babekho uAdam noEfa. NoSathana lo ngomnye wezidalwa zikaThixo. Kodwa uSathana umvukele uThixo olungileyo, efuna ukuba njengoThixo. Ke wazimisela ukuba kwanoAdam noEfa bamvukele uThixo, waza wabaxokisa. Suka ke abantu bakuyeka ukumthobela uThixo, balandela uSathana nobuxoki bakhe, batya kuloo mthi babeyalwe ukuba bangazityi iziqhamo zawo. Ngolu hlobo uSathana ukhokele abantu ukuba bangamthobeli uThixo, koko bayivukele intando yakhe elungileyo.

Ngokwenza le nto engalunganga uAdam noEfa basuke baba ngaboni. Aboni ngabantu abangamthobeliyo uThixo. UAdam noEfa bayekile ukukholwa ngamazwi kaThixo. Bayekile ukuyithemba intando kaThixo malunga nobomi babo. Bayekile ukuvana noThixo, kuba bakhethe ukuyikhaba imiyalelo kaThixo nenyaniso yakhe. Ewe, bamfulathele uThixo, bakuyeka ukukholwa nguye.

UThixo ubagxothile uAdam noEfa kuloo myezo ababesakuba behlala kuwo. Konke ehlabathini kusuke kwaguquka. Kwakutsalwa nzima, iingxaki zininzi. Kusuke kwabakho ukubulala nobudlobongela nokuntshontsha, zaba ninzi iintlungu neentsizi, zabakho izifo nokufa. Ukususela kwelo xesha bonke abantu abazelweyo babengamazi uThixo nentando yakhe elungileyo. Suka abantu baphila ngokwendlela kaSathana namacebo akhe.

Kodwa uThixo akayekanga ukubathanda abantu. Ke yena uye waba necebo lokubasindisa abantu, khon’ ukuze bangenzakaliswa nguSathana omacebo akhe asinga ekufeni.

Abantu baye besanda ngokwanda. Bamlibele uThixo, baza àbaqonda ukuba ubakhathalele, efuna ukuba balungelwe. Ke abantu abaninzi bacinge izinto ezimbi, bengakwazi okulungileyo. Kodwa ibikho indoda ethile eyayimazi uThixo, imlulamela. Igama layo nguAbraham. UAbraham nomkakhe babesele baluphele, bengenako ukuzala abantwana. Nanko uAbraham kulo mfanekiso wakhe. Kodwa ngobunye ubusuku uThixo wathi kuAbraham: “Khangela ezulwini, ulinge ukuzibala iinkwenkwezi. Inzala yakho iya kuba ninzi kwanjengokuba zininzi iinkwenkwezi.” Waqhuba uThixo esithi bonke abantu ehlabathini baya kusikelelwa ngenxa yenzala ka-Abraham. Oko kuthetha ukuthi babeya kuvuya kakhulu, kuba babeya kuphinda bavane noThixo njengoko kwakunjalo ekuqaleni kuAdam noEfa, phambi kokuba bawayo esonweni.

UAbraham akakuqondanga konke okuthethwe nguThixo, kodwa umthembile uThixo nazo zonke izithembiso zakhe. Ngenene ke, kuthe uAbraham enekhulu leminyaka ubudala umkakhe uSara wazala unyana.

UAbraham uphile wada wakhokhoba, baza baphila iminyaka ngeminyaka abantwana nabazukulwana bakhe, nabantwana babo nenzala yabo ngokunjalo. Iminyaka emininzi emva koko uThixo uthume isithunywa sezulu ukuya kwizwe lakwaSirayeli, apho inzala ka-Abraham yayihlala khona. Isithunywa esi siqale saya komkhulu eJerusalem. Kwesi sixeko bekukho indlu kaThixo enkulu, apho uThixo wayenqulwa khona ngabantu abakholwa nguye, ababethetha noThixo bethandaza.

Phaya endlwini kaThixo bekukho umbingeleli ogama linguZakariya. (Umsebenzi wombingeleli ubukukunikela kuThixo ngamadini phaya endlwini kaThixo, athandazele abantu bakwaSirayeli.) UmkaZakariya, uElizabhete, naye wayefana nomka-Abraham uSara ngokungazali bantwana. Kodwa ngenye imini, uZakariya ethandaza endlwini kaThixo, kuthe gqi isithunywa sikaThixo, sathi kuye: “Musa ukoyika, Zakariya. Umfazi wakho uElizabhete uya kuzala unyana. Uze umthiye igama elinguYohane. Ukuzalwa kwakhe kuya kukuphathela uvuyo nolonwabo, ize loo nto ibe luvuyo nakubantu abaninzi. Yena uya kuba ngumkhonzi obalulekileyo kaThixo. Uya kulawulwa nguMoya oyiNgcwele kaThixo kwasekuzalweni kwakhe.”

Ke konke kwenzeke njengoko isithunywa sasitshilo. Akuba mkhulu uYohane ube ngumkhonzi obalulekileyo kaThixo engumshumayeli (okanye umprofeti ngesiGrike) ovakalisa ilizwi likaThixo kumaSirayeli.

Iinyanga ezimbalwa emva kokuba isithunyuwa sikaThixo sathethayo noZakariya isithunywa esi sibonakele kwintombi ethile yakwaSirayeli. Igama layo nguMariya. UMariya lo wayengazange walala nendoda. Isithunywa sithe kuMariya: “Uza kumitha, uzale unyana, umthiye igama elinguYesu. UMoya oyiNgcwele kaThixo uya kuhlela kuwe. Kungoko loo mntwana ungcwele uya kuzalwa nguwe kuya kuthiwa nguNyana kaThixo.”

Kodwa isithunywa sikaThixo sibonakele kuye ephupheni, sathi: “Sukoyika ukumthatha uMariya abe ngumfazi wakho, kuba oko akukhawuleyo kungoMoya oyiNgcwele kaThixo. UMariya uya kuzala unyana, ùmthiye igama elinguYesu, kuba nguye oya kubasindisa abantu bakhe ezonweni zabo.” Igama elithi Yesu lithetha ukuthi Msindisi okanye Mkhululi.

Nantsi into eyoba ngumqondiso kuni: nofumana usana lulele emkhumbini wesitali.”

Yena wayekholwa sisithembiso sikaThixo sokuba uza kuthumela uMsindisi uYesu Krestu ehlabathini. USimon lo wayekulangazelela ukufika koMsindisi. Ke uSimon, akubona abazali bakaYesu bengena naye endlwini kaThixo, usuke wamfunqula uYesu, wabonga uThixo, wathi: “Nkosi, amehlo am alubonile usindiso lwakho olulungiselele bonke abantu. Amandla akho alukhanyiso lokukhanyisela iintlanga; abalula abantu bakho amaSirayeli.”

Endlwini kaThixo kwakukho nentokazi eyalupheleyo eyayingumshumayeli eyayithunywe nguThixo ukubayaleza nokubakhuthaza abantu. Igama layo belinguAna. Ke uAna lo, akuba esondele embonile uYesu, wamana ethetha ngaye kubo bonke ababelindele ukukhululwa. USimon noAna bobabini babeqonda ukuba uYesu unguKrestu uThixo athembise ukumthumela ehlabathini. Igama elithi Krestu lithetha ukuthi uMthanjiswa okanye uMkhethwa. Ke othanjisiweyo ufakwe kwisikhundla esithile, abe yena okhethiweyo engulowo walathelwe isikhundla. UYesu uchongwe nguThixo ukuza kusindisa ihlabathi.

Sibonele kwiintswelo zethu zemihla ngemihla;
usixolele amatyala ethu, njengokuba nathi sibaxolela abasonayo;
ungasiyekeli ekulingweni.’”

Sixolele amatyala ethu kwanjengoko thina sibaxolelayo abo bantu basonayo thina. Nceda ungavumi ukuba sihendwe senze izinto ezimbi, sicinge izinto ezingafanelekanga.”

Mna bendisazi ukuba uhlala undiva, kambe ke nditsho ngenxa yale ndimbane yabantu ixhontelene apha, khon’ ukuze ikholwe ukuba ndithunywe nguwe.” Akuba etshilo wadanduluka wathi: “Lazaro, phuma engcwabeni!” Waphuma kwangoko uLazaro, waza uYesu wathi: “Mkhululeni amagqiya okungcwatywa, nimyeke agoduke.” UYesu uvuse uLazaro ekufeni.

Kaloku wonke umntu oziphakamisayo uya kuthotywa, nozithobayo uya kuphakanyiswa.”

Nanku omnye umzekeliso kaYesu ochasene neenkokeli kwezonqulo zemihla yakhe: Umnini‑mzi utyale isidiliya, waza wabona ukuba makaqeshise ngaso, aze ahambele kwelinye ilizwe. Ngexesha lokuvuthwa kweziqhamo ke, wathumela isicaka kubaqeshi, ukuze bamnike imali yengqesho. Kodwa abaqeshi basuke basibetha isicaka eso, basindulula singaphathanga nto. Emva koko umnini-mzi uthume ezinye iizicaka ezininzi ukuphuthuma imali yengqesho, kodwa bona abaqeshi bazibethe zonke, bada babulala ezinye.

Ke umnini-sidiliya ubone ukuba makaselethuma unyana wakhe oyintanda, kodwa naye ubulewe ngabaqeshi. Ke uYesu ubuze esithi: “Uya kwenza ntoni ke ngoko umnini-sidiliya? Wofika abatshabalalise abo baqeshi, asinike bantu bambi eso sidiliya.”

Iinkokeli kwezonqulo zazifana nabaqeshi aba. Zange zibahoye abathunywa bakaThixo, abashumayeli bamandulo, zaza azavuma ukulwamkela udaba lokuba uyeza ehlabathini uKrestu, uMthanjiswa kaThixo. Kanti ke lo gama uYesu abenzela lo mzekeliso abantu, iinkokeli ezi bezibhunga icebo lokumbulala uYesu, yena Nyana kaThixo ophilayo. Kaloku zazimthiyile zingakholwa nguye, njengoko zenjenjalo kubashumayeli bamandulo abamgabulele izigcawu.

UYesu wenze lo mzekeliso kuba esazi ukuba iinkokeli kwezonqulo zibhunga ukumbulala, zisenza unako-nako ukuze athethe okanye enze into eyimpazamo, ukuze zibe nako umkummangalela nokumgweba.
