多馬福音五十七篇 野草

拿戈瑪第經文 (Nag Hammadi Coptic Text)


Jesus says: "The Kingdom of the Father is like a man who has [good] seed <in his field.> By night his enemy came and sowed tares over the seed which is good. <But> this man did not allow them <his servants> to pluck up the tares, 'for fear', he told them, 'that in going to take away the tares, you carry off the wheat with it. But on the harvest day the tares will be recognisable; they will be taken away and burnt.'"

耶穌說:「父親的天國就像是一個有好種子的人。仇敵趁晚上在好種之間播種野草。這個人不會叫他們拔野草,而是對他們說:『你們不要拔野草,不然連麥子也一起拔掉了。』在收成的時候,野草就會很明顯,而被拔出來燒掉。」

個人見解

that in going to take away the tares, you carry off the wheat with it
人生必須從錯誤中學習,每段困難之處都可看作為一個學習機會。除去了所有困難,無疑阻礙了那人在生命中的成長過程。

But on the harvest day the tares will be recognisable; they will be taken away and burnt
當然,這些困難考驗亦非永恆。當完成了整個學習的階段自會消失。
