丹尼爾‧華勒斯 (Daniel B. Wallace) 博士:用敬拜的心學習、教導、和再學習

1997 年,我感染了腦炎,這種疾病使我的大腦腫脹,失去了大部分記憶。我的希臘文知識大約是希臘文第一年學生的水平,而我的其他外語能力幾乎完全蒸發了。」 每當華勒斯博士分享到這裡,聽者都會目瞪口呆,無言以對,這似乎也是唯一自然而然的反應。喪失記憶,可以給人生帶來極大的破壞性。對於一個幾十年來兢兢業業,在聖經研究方面累積了無數的知識、洞察力、和敏感的思考能力的學者來說,更是帶來了錐心的痛苦。若是你的大量知識在一夜之間消失,還能夠堅持以教導真理為目標嗎?丹的反應卻是:絕不放棄,要像以前一樣繼續學習、繼續教導、重新學習。而認識丹的人,對此都不會感到驚訝。丹說,「我必須重新學習希臘文,就用我自己在前一年出版的教科書自學希臘文!」 每個基督徒在生活中,都應當不斷的學習和教導。我們的主歡迎我們向祂交心,把心底的任何問題向祂提問,祂希望我們和祂對話,要我們在學習的過程中享受祂,以祂為樂,最終還要差派我們入世,與世人分享我們所學到的東西(正如馬克‧貝利 [Mark Bailey] 博士在本期撰文所說)。我們不應該如死水一般停滯不前,自以為已臻化境,不求長進。我們若是落實研讀聖經,這屬靈的操練就能為我們有深度的信仰打穩根基。研讀聖經的屬靈操練包括逐章逐節從頭到尾連讀性的誦讀整本聖經 (lectio divina)、年度讀經計劃、背誦經文、和小組討論。我們找到問題的答案,同時也發現更多的問題。華勒斯博士說,「學習聖經是有風險的,因為可能引發一連串的問題!但不論我們提出什麼問題,聖經中都有解答!」 丹必須用自己寫的教材重學希臘文,但這並不是他第一次甚至是第二次挑燈夜讀的勤學希臘文。 丹他對這門語言的追求,始於他十幾歲、還是年輕基督徒之時遇到的問題。1969年1月,丹在加州阿納海姆 (Anaheim) 的一次奮興會上經歷了聖靈的恩膏,激起了想要閱讀聖經,想要向周圍所有人分享福音的熱情。他遇到來自科斯塔梅薩 (Costa Mesa) 的一個商人,這個商人向丹出售幾箱好消息聖經,讓丹可以與其他人分享,但他說了一句話,「你知道,耶穌不是上帝。」這句話讓丹百思不得其解,導致他展開追尋之旅,開始尋求答案。丹後來才知道,這個商人所說的,是異端亞流的觀點,但這種說法促使他去讀聖經,想要了解真相。他心想,「如果我打算把我的生命獻給基督,我最好確定祂是值得的。」在那整個學期裡,他每週都會把整本新約聖經讀一次。…
