Isahluko 6

1Emva kwalokho uJesu wamuka waya phesheya kolwandle lwaseGalile olungolwaseTiberiya.
2 Samlandela isixuku esikhulu, ngokuba babebona izibonakaliso azenzayo kwabagulayo.
3 UJesu wenyukela entabeni, wahlala phansi khona nabafundi bakhe.
4 Laliseduze iPhasika, umkhosi wabaJuda.
5 Kuthe uJesu ephakamisa amehlo, wabona ukuthi isixuku esikhulu siza kuye, wathi kuFiliphu: “Sizakuzithengaphi izinkwa ukuba badle laba na?”
6 Washo njalo emvivinya, ngokuba yena wayekwazi azakukwenza.
7 UFiliphu wamphendula wathi: “Izinkwa zawodenariyu abangamakhulu amabili zingebanele, kube yilowo nalowo athole ingcosana.”
8 Omunye wabafundi bakhe, u-Andreya umfowabo kaSimoni Petru, wathi kuye:
9 “Kukhona umfana lapha onezinkwa zebhali eziyisihlanu nezinhlanzana ezimbili; kepha kuyini lokho kwabaningi kangaka na?”
10 UJesu wathi: “Bahlaliseni abantu.” Kwakukhona utshani obuningi kuleyo ndawo. Ahlala phansi-ke amadoda, umumo wawo kungathi izinkulungwame eziyisihlanu.
11 UJesu wazithabatha izinkwa, wabonga, wayesezabela ababehlezi phansi, kanjalo futhi nezinhlanzana, njengokuthanda kwabo.
12 Kuthe sebesuthi, wathi kubafundi bakhe: “Buthani imvuthuluka eseleyo, kungachitheki lutho.”
13 Base bebutha, bagcwalisa iziqabetho eziyishumi nambili ngemvuthuluka yezinkwa eziyisihlanu zebhali eyasala kwabadlileyo.
14 Kwathi-ke abantu bebona isibonakaliso uJesu asenzayo, bathi: “Impela lo ungumProfethi ozayo ezweni.”
15 Ngakho-ke uJesu azi ukuthi bazakuza, bambambe, bambeke inkosi, wamonyukela futhi entabeni yena yedwa.
16 Sekuhlwa abafundi bakhe bewukela elwandle,
17 bangena emkhunjini, bawela ulwandle beya eKapernawume. Kwase kuhlwile, uJesu wayengakafiki kubo.
18 Kwavunguza umoya omkhulu, lwavuka ulwandle.
19 Khona sebegwedlile kungathi amastadiyu angamashumi amabili nanhlanu noma amashumi amathathu, babona uJesu ehamba phezu kolwandle, esondela emkhunjini; bethuka.
20 Kepha wathi kubo: “Yimina, ningesabi.”
21 Khona bafuna ukumngenisa emkhunjini, umkhumbi wawusufika masinyane ezweni ababeya kulo.
22 Ngangomuso isixuku esasingaphesheya kolwandle sabona kungekho omunye umkhunjana khona, sazi ukuthi ubumunye nje nokuthi uJesu wayengangenanga emkhunjini kanye nabafundi bakhe, kepha ukuthi abafundi bakhe babewele bodwa,
23 kodwa eminye imikhunjana evela eTiberiya yafika eduze nendawo lapho badla khona isinkwa, iNkosi ibongile;
24 isixuku sathi ukubona ukuthi uJesu akakho lapho nabafundi bakhe, sangena emikhunjaneni, naso saya eKapernawume sifuna uJesu.
25 Kwathi ukuba bamfumane phesheya kolwandle, bathi: “Rabi, ufike nini lapha na?”
26 UJesu wabaphendula wathi: “Ngiqinisile, ngiqinisile ngithi kini: Aningifuni ngokuba nabona izibonakaliso, kepha ningifuna ngokuba nadla izinkwa, nasutha.
27 Ningasebenzeli ukudla okuphelayo kepha ukudla okuhlala kuze kube ngukuphila okuphakade, eyakunipha khona iNdodana yomuntu, ngokuba uYise uNkulunkulu ubekile uphawu kuyona.”
28 Bathi-ke kuye: “Singenzani ukuba sisebenze imisebenzi kaNkulunkulu na?”
29 Waphendula uJesu, wathi kubo: “Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu yilowo ukuba nikholwe nguye amthumileyo.” 6:29 1 Joh. 3:23.
30 Ngakho bathi kuye: “Pho, wenza sibonakaliso sini ukuba sibone, sikholwe nguwe, na? Usebenzani na?
31 Okhokho bethu badla imana ehlane njengokulotshiweyo ukuthi: ‘Wabapha isinkwa esivela ezulwini ukuba badle.’ ”
32 UJesu wayesethi kubo: “Ngiqinisile, ngiqinisile ngithi kini: Kwakungesiye uMose owanipha isinkwa esivela ezulwini, kodwa uBaba unipha isinkwa soqobo esivela ezulwini.
33 Ngokuba isinkwa sikaNkulunkulu singuye owehla ezulwini, olipha izwe ukuphila.”
34 Khona bathi kuye: “Nkosi, siphe njalonjalo leso sinkwa.”
35 UJesu wathi kubo: “Mina ngiyisinkwa sokuphila; ozayo kimi kasoze alamba, nokholwa yimi kasoze oma.
36 Kepha ngithe kini: Ningibonile, nokho anikholwa.
37 Konke angipha khona uBaba kuyakuza kimi; ozayo kimi angisoze ngamlahlela ngaphandle.
38 Ngokuba ngehle ezulwini kungengukuba ngenze intando yami, kodwa ukuba ngenze intando yongithumileyo.
39 Lokhu kuyintando yongithumileyo ukuba konke angiphe khona ngingalahlekelwa lutho kukho, kodwa ngikuvuse ngomuhla wokuphela.
40 Ngokuba lokhu kuyintando kaBaba ukuba yilowo nalowo obona iNdodana, akholwe yiyo, abe nokuphila okuphakade; ngiyakumvusa mina ngomuhla wokuphela.”
41 Khona abaJuda bakhonona ngaye, ngokuba ethe: “Ngiyisinkwa esehle ezulwini.”
42 Bathi-ke: “Lona akusiye uJesu indodana kaJosefa, uyise nonina sibazi na? Usesho kanjani, pho, ukuthi: ‘Ngehle ezulwini,’ na?”
43 UJesu waphendula, wathi kubo: “Ningakhononi phakathi kwenu.
44 Akakho ongeza kimi, uma uBaba ongithumileyo engamdonsi; mina-ke ngiyakumvusa ngomuhla wokuphela.
45 Kulotshiwe kubaprofethi ukuthi: ‘Bonke bayakuba ngabafundiswe nguNkulunkulu.’ Yilowo nalowo ozwile kuBaba, wafunda, uyeza kimi.
46 Akusikho ukuthi ukhona oke wambona uBaba, kuphela ovela kuNkulunkulu; nguyena ombonile uBaba.
47 Ngiqinisile, ngiqinisile ngithi kini: Okholwayo unokuphila okuphakade.
48 Mina ngiyisinkwa sokuphila.
49 Okhokho benu badla imana ehlane, bafa.
50 Lesi siyisinkwa esehla ezulwini ukuba umuntu adle kuso, angafi.
51 Mina ngiyisinkwa esiphilayo esehla ezulwini. Uma umuntu edla lesi sinkwa, uyakuphila phakade; futhi-ke isinkwa engizakusinikela ngenxa yokuphila kwezwe siyinyama yami.”
52 Base bephikisana bodwa abaJuda, bethi: “Lo angasinika kanjani inyama yakhe, siyidle, na?”
53 Khona uJesu wathi kubo: “Ngiqinisile, ngiqinisile ngithi kini: Uma ningayidli inyama yeNdodana yomuntu, niphuze igazi layo, aninakuphila phakathi kwenu.
54 Odla inyama yami, aphuze igazi lami, unokuphila okuphakade; mina ngiyakumvusa ngomuhla wokuphela.
55 Ngokuba inyama yami ingukudla isibili, negazi lami lingukuphuza isibili.
56 Odla inyama yami, aphuze igazi lami, uhlala kimi, nami kuye.
57 Njengalokho uBaba ophilayo ungithumile, nami ngiphila ngoBaba, lowo ongidlayo naye uyakuphila ngami.
58 Lesi siyisinkwa esehle ezulwini, kungenjengalokho okhokho benu badla imana, bafa; osidlayo lesi sinkwa uyakuphila phakade.”
59 Lokho wakukhuluma esinagogeni efundisa eKapernawume.
60 Ngakho-ke abaningi kubafundi bakhe bekuzwa lokho bathi: “Lilukhuni leli zwi; ngubani ongalizwa na?”
61 Kepha uJesu azi phakathi kwakhe ukuthi abafundi bakhe bayakhonona ngalokho, wathi: “Lokhu kuyanicunula na?
62 Pho, uma nibona iNdodana yomuntu yenyukela lapho yayikhona kuqala, niyakuthini na?
63 NguMoya ophilisayo, inyama ayisizi lutho; amazwi engiwakhulume kini angumoya, angukuphila.
64 Kepha bakhona abanye phakathi kwenu abangakholwa. Ngokuba uJesu wazi kwasekuqaleni ukuba ngobani abangakholwa nokuba ngubani ozakumkhaphela.”
65 Wayesethi: “Kungenxa yalokho ngithe kini: Akakho ongeza kimi uma engakuphiwe nguBaba.”
66 Emva kwalokho abaningi babafundi bakhe babuyela emuva, ababe besahamba naye.
67 Ngakho uJesu wathi kwabayishumi nambili: “Nani nithanda ukumuka na?”
68 USimoni Petru wamphendula wathi: “Nkosi, siyakuya kubani na? Amazwi okuphila okuphakade akuwe.
69 Siyakholwa, siyazi ukuthi wena ungoNgcwele kaNkulunkulu.”
70 UJesu wabaphendula wathi: “Mina anginikhethanga nina abayishumi nambili na? Kepha omunye kini ungusathane.”
71 Wayekhuluma ngoJuda Iskariyothe kaSimoni, ngokuba nguye obezakumkhaphela engomunye wabayishumi nambili.
