Pathian Berâm No, khawvel sual kalpuitu

Kohhranin a hrilhfiah sual em?

Bible-a Lal Isua sawina hming mawi tak mai Pathian Berâm No tih hi Bible-ah hian a lang tam vak lo hle a. 'Pathian Berâm No' tih ang tak phei chuan Thuthlung Tharah hian hmun hnih, Johana 1:29, 36-ah te chauh kan hmu a. Berâm No tih hi Greek tawng chuan Amnos leh Arnion a ni a.

Arnion hi berâm no tihna a ni a, pawisawi lo tihnate pawh a kawk a. Thup 13:11-ah chuan Isuan a zirtirte chu 'tá arnia mou', ka berâmte, tiin a ko a, Jn 21:15-ah chuan sualna reng nei lo, Isua tuarna sawi nan a hmang a ni. Amnos pawh hi berâm no tihna tho ni mah se, a kawh tlemin a danglam a, inthawinaa hlan tur berâm no, hmelhem lo leh pawisawi lo sawina bik deuh a ni. Jn 1 thua berâm no kan hmuhte hi inthawina hlan tur, hmelhem lo berâm no sawina bik, Amnos ve ve hman a ni.

'Khawvel sual phurtu' tia Johana sawi hi a dik lo deuh em? A thu awmzia nen hian ngaihtuah zui a ngai deuhin alang (Ho Amnos tou Theou ho airon tên hamartian tou kosmou). 'Phur' tih hi Greek-ah chuan airon - la bo, tibo emaw tihna a ni a. Berâm no hi Bible-ah hetiang chiah hian hman a ni em?

'Khawvel sual kalpuitu' tih hian rilruah Lev. 16:1-28 thu a lo lang a. Israelten an hnam sualna, an phurhtir thina chu kêl a ni zawk a. Kêl pahnih an la a, pakhat chu mipui pual sual thawi nan an hmang a, pakhat chu thlalerah chhuahin Azazela tan an ti thin. Hetiang hi a nih si avangin Berâm No thu Johana'n a hmang daih hi a mak ang reng phian!

Amnos a hmang a, inthawina berâm no sawina a ni a. Inthawina nena kaihhnawih berâm no chu Ex. 29:38-46 chungchang a ni leh a. Hetah hian nitina sual thawi nana berâm no hlan thu kan hmu a. Hei hi behchhana hmana 'Khawvel sual kalpuitu' tih nen chuan a inrem leh chiah si lo. He inthawina hi chu a nihna takah chuan Pathian hnena remna thil hlan a ni ber. Hengte atanga a landan chuan 'Khawvel sual kalpuitu' tih ai chuan 'Pathian Berâm No, Inremna thil hlan tur chu' ti ta zawk se, a dik zawk viau ang.

Kalhlen Kût thil hlan nen inzawmna a nei zawk ang em? I Kor 5:7-ah chuan Isua chu kan Kalhlen Kûtna tur a ni tih kan hmu. He ngaihdan hian Zanriah hnuhnung kilna boruak pawh kha a luah hle niin a lang. Kalhlen Kût laiin Isua hi tihhlum a ni tih Johana hian a uar hle a (Jn 18:28; 19:14, 31), mahse Kalhlen Kûtna tih tak hi chu pawm harsatna chhan a awm. Kalhlen Kût thil hlan, berâm talh hi remna thil hlan emaw, sual phurhna lam nena inkaihhnawiha ngaih a ni lo. Tin, Kalhlen Kût-ah hian beram no leh beram kher lo pawh an talh thin. Hetihlai hian C. Morris-a chuan eng thil hlan mai pawh hian inremna awmzia a kengtel vek a ni a ti thung.

Thil ni thei dang leh chu Isaia 53:7 thu ang hi a ni. Hetilai thuah hian Beram No chu Pathian chhiahhlawh sawi nana hman a ni a, chu chhiahhlawh chuan sual a phur a ni (Is. 53:11). Jn 12:38-ah chuan Is 53:1 thu la chhuakin, Isua chu Pathian chhiahhlawh kha ni ta angin a tarlang. Heta kan sawi tâk bera chu Pathian Berâm No, khawvel sual phurtu tih hi Thuthlung Hluia inthawina lam a ni lo a, Is. 53 thua Pathian Chhiahhlawh sawina kha a ni e, tih a ni ber.

Chhiahhlawh leh Berâm No chungchang hi chhuidawn pawh a hlawh viau mai a. Mithiamte chuan 'Amnos' tih hi Aramaic 'Talyã' tih, ngaihsual leh lehlin sual a ni ang e, an ti a. Talyã hi 'Berâm No' tiin a lehlin theih a, chutihrual chuan 'Chhiahhlawh' tiin a lehlin theih bawk. Johana hian sawi a tum tak zawk chu 'Pathian Chhiahhlawh' zawk a ni a, mahse kohhran kal zel khan 'Beram No' angin a sawi chhawng ta a ni ang, an ti a, a rinawm viau.

Bible-a inthawina leh berâm no an hman dan leh, Johana 'Pathian Berâm No, khawvel sual kalpuitu tur' a tih hi a inrem thlap hlei thei lo a. He tawngkam chiah chiah hi Chanchin Tha dang ziaktuten an hmanpui lo. Johana hian kawhtir tum a nei ngei tih a hriat a, mahse Isuaa Berâm No a hmanna leh Thuthlung Hlui hman dan te, Israelten berâm no an hmanna hrang hrang ngaihtuahin a inrem hlei thei lo. Isua hunlaia an tawng hman tlanglawn ber chu Aramaic a ni a, Aramaic-a 'talyã' hi Kohhran kal zelin a hrilhfiah dik loh emaw, a thelh deuh emaw a ni ngei zawkin a lang.

Hla leh PCI Thurin

Mizorama harhna a rawn thlenin Thlarau Thianghlimin hmanraw pawimawh taka a hman chu hla bawk hi a ni a. Kum 1919-a harhna a rawn thlen atang phei kha chuan hla hian Mizo Kristiante nunah hmun pawimawh tak a chang a, Mizo Kristian hla tha tak tak a rawn chhuak ta zut zut a ni.

Inkhawmpui a hlawhtlin leh hlawhtlin loh teh nan te, kohhran thlarau nun leh ringtu nun tehna pawimawh chu hla, zai leh lâm a ni ta zel.

Hetianga hlain khawvel puma Kristiante nuna hmun pawimawh tak a chan lai hian India Ram Presbyterian Kohhran Thurin VII-ah chuan 'Thlarau Thianghlim chuan khawngaihna hna a thawhin, Thu te, Sakramen te, Tawngtaina te hi hmanruaah a hmang deuh bik thin a ni' tih a ni chauh mai a.
