New Testament Scriptures of interest

I (Shimizu) have extracted some verses from the New Testament that caught my attention. I briefly explain why.

Quotes from The New Testament(Diglot Bible)

The Diglot Bible is a bilingual New Testament in Japanese and English.


The Crucifixion  Chapter 27, verses 40-43, page 92.

and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”

So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him saying,

He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him.

He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’ ”

And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way.

# These were the words of the people toward the crucified Jesus Christ, and I believe that these were their actual feelings. I believe that they chose to live within their own position as human beings, rather than relying on a “miracle” by God.

The Great Commission  Chapter 28, verses 18-20, page 97.

And Jesus came to and said to them, “All authority in heaven on earth has been given to me.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

# This expression is what appears in the Table given at the beginning of this article. I am sure there are many more combinations, but for now I have noted the ones I noticed.


The Request of James and Jhon  Chapter 10, verses 43-45, pages 134-135.

“You know that those who are considered rules of the Gentiles load it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.

But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant,

and it whoever would be among you must be slave of all.

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

# This section discusses the attitudes of public officials and politicians who represent the bureaucracy. They have a lot of authority over the lives of the people. They are truly what we can call “life”. How to exercise authority, I believe, is to imitate Jesus Christ.


A Sinful Woman Forgiven  Chapter 7, Section 50, page 191.

And he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

# The teachings of Jesus Christ state that it is a faith with a “system of salvation.

The Load’s Prayer  Chapter 11, verses 9-13, pages 208-209.

And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.

What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent;

or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?

If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!

# As Jesus Christ says, “ask, seek, knock at the door,” a spontaneous attitude is important. We are told to listen to others, use our eyes and hands to find things in the natural environment, and send signals from hidden and unseen places to make the object take action and remove obstacles. The difficulty level is gradually increasing, but in this way you will get what you want.

Not Peace, but Division  Chapter 12, verses 49-53, page 217.

“I came to cast fire on the earth, and would that it were already kindled!

I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how great is my distress until it is accomplished!

Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.

For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three.

They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

# This may describe the “dissipative structure” that is occurring on the earth. Dissipative structures are the activities of living organisms, which are able to exist by maintaining a thermodynamically nonequilibrium state.

Who Is the Greatest?  Chapter 22, verses 28-29, page 251.

“You are those who have stayed with me in my trials,

and I assign to you, as my Father assigned to me, a kingdom,

# Jesus Christ has dominion. Jesus Christ does not rule the world. I am saying that those who believe in Christ have dominion over the world. I think he is talking about the lordship of space and time.


The Word Became Flesh  Chapter 1, Sections 1-5, 265 pages.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God.

All things were made though him, and without him was not anything made that was made.

In him was life, and the life was light of men.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

# This representation is part of what appears in the Table given at the beginning of this section.

I am the Father Are One  Chapter 10, verses 25-38, pages 304-305.

Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me,

but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.

I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.

My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.

I and the Father are one.”

The Jews picked up stones again to stone him.

Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?”

The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.”

Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods’?

If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be broken—

do you say of him, whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming’, because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?

If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me;

but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I am in the Father”

# The chart shown at the beginning of this section represents the relationship between the Father and the Son. It says, “If you do not believe in me, believe in my craft.” also represents the emergent phenomenon.

Your Sorrow Will Turn into Joy  Chapter 16, verses 23-24, page 326.

In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.

Until now you asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

# It expresses the administration that Jesus Christ possesses. It means that if we do things the way Jesus Christ showed us, our wishes will come true. If you just wish blindly, you will end up with an empty wish.


The Promise Realized Through Faith  Chapter 4, verses 13-16, page 451.

For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the low but through the righteousness of faith.

For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void.

For the law brigs wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression.

That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise my rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring — not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one  who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all,

# A promise by faith cannot be other than by faith because it is a promise between God and man. To whom does the world belong? I believe that “righteousness by faith” takes precedence over “the law.

Dead to Sin, Alive to God    Chapter 6, Section 2-4, pages 454-455.

How can we who died to sin still live in it?

Do you know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.

# I believe that the emergent phenomenon, as represented in the table shown at the beginning of this article, represents living in a world that includes a system of salvation.

Slaves to Righteousness   Chapter 6, verses 16-18, page 456.

Do you know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are servants of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?

But thanks be to God, that, you who were ones slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed,

and, having been set free from sin, you have become slaves of righteousness.

# Again, I believe that the emergent phenomenon, as represented in the table shown at the beginning of this article, represents living in a world that includes a salvation system.

Marriage Metaphor  Chapter 7, Section 1-6, pages 456-457.

Or do you not know, brothers (for I am speaking to those who know the law) that the law is binding on a person only as long as he lives?

For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage.

Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is not an adulteress.

Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.

For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death.

But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in new way of the Spirit and in the old way of the written code.

# Again, I believe that the emergent phenomenon, as represented in the table shown at the beginning of this article, represents living in a world that includes a salvation system.

A Living Sacrifice  Chapter 12, Section 1~2, pages 471-472.

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

# I think it writes about the importance of being aware of the social self.

Submission to the Authorities  Chapter 13, Section 1-4, pages 473-474.

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and who resist will incur judgment.

For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,

for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.

# Good and evil are derived from the ruler, but if you do good, you are not going against God or the ruler.


Divisions in the Church  Chapter 3, verses 16-17, page 490

Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?

If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

# The Spirit of God lives within you, and it keeps you alive, believing in tomorrow. If the Spirit of God within you is broken, you will not be able to believe in tomorrow and you will die.

Spiritual Gifts  Chapter 12, Section 3-6, page 510

Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking in the Spirit of God ever says “Jesus is accursed!” and no one can say “Jesus is Lord” expect in the Holy Spirit.

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit;

and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord;

and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.

# The power of the spirit is given to each individual by God Almighty in an optimized form, just as energy is expressed in various forms, e.g., physical, electrical, chemical, etc.

One Body with Many Members  Chapter 12, verses 27-28, page 512.

Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.

And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds of tongues.

# The Japanese national system has maintained a society centered on the Emperor to this day. The Emperor is the symbol of Japan, amounting to a double contingency, and the people are the contingency.

The Resurrection of the Dead  Chapter 15, Section 22, page 519.

For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.

# Original sin refers to the fact that, due to Adam’s sin, “death entered into the history of mankind. However, Jesus Christ was resurrected by the grace of God so that we could have eternal life.


Paul Defends His Ministry  Chapter 10, verses 15-17, page 544.

We do not boast beyond limit in the labours of others. But our hope is that as your faith increases, our area of influence among you may be greatly enlarged,

so that we may preach the gospel in lands beyond you, without boasting of work already done in another’s area of influence.

“Let the one who boasts, in the Lord.”

# We can do “help God with his work” that seems tremendously tedious and seemingly without reward because we believe we have a recommendation from Almighty God. Or, we can do it with priority over anything else.


The Law and the Promise  Chapter 3, verses 21-27, page 559.

Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law

But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.

So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith.

But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian,

for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith.

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

# It describes the role of the law. It is given a temporary role until man is justified by faith. The role of the law ends when faith in Jesus Christ is established. Faith has the function of extending into areas where multiple laws are in effect and uniting them into a larger whole.


Thanksgiving and Prayer  Chapter 1, verses 20-23, page 568.

that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places,

far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church,

which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

# I believe it is represented in the table of dynamical systems theory shown at the beginning of this article.


Righteousness Through Faith in Christ  Chapter 3, Section 9-11, page 587.

and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—

that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,

that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

# Japan will not be a country that lasts forever unless its people, the members of the nation, belong to a world that will never end.

Straining Towards the Goal  Chapter 3, verses 17-21, page 588.

Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us.

For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ.

Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ,

who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

# We believe that by following the example of Jesus Christ, we can learn what is expressed in the table of the Dynamical Systems Theory shown at the beginning of this article.


Thanksgiving and Prayer  The Pre-eminence of Christ

Chapter 1, verses 11-22, pages 592-593.

May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy,

giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,

in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.

For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be pre-eminent.

For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell,

and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds,

he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him,

# Jesus Christ was born before all things of this world were created. It is safe to say that all things have the attributes of the Son. All things manifest the attributes of the Son. I believe that part of this is expressed in the table of the dynamical system theory given at the beginning of this article. Reconciliation with God was made through the death and resurrection of the Son, Jesus Christ. In other words, it is the transfer of God’s skill to human beings.

Paul’s Ministry to the Church  Chapter 1, verses 25-29; Chapter 2, verses 1-3, pages 593-594.

of which I became a minister, according to the stewardship from God that was given to me for you, to make the ward of God fully known,

the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints.

To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone will all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.

For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.

For I want you know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face,

that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ,

in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

# Love is the power that generates emergence, and it brings together the social self of the whole world to enrich the world and to ensure the realization of the Kingdom of God. Love is the instrument that materializes Christ in the world.


Thanksgiving  Chapter 1, Section 7-9, pages 609-610.

and to great relief to you who are afflicted as well as to us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels

in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might,

# It shows that Jesus Christ will appear in the “dissipative structure.” Although there are difficulties as a real problem of global warming, let us not flinch and move forward, hoping in the foresight of human beings.


The Supremacy of God’s Son  Chapter 1, Section 2-4, page 641.

but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the worlds.

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

# I believe it is represented in the table of dynamical systems theory shown at the beginning of this article.
