I Counsel You to Buy Gold from Me Refined by Fire: So that You may be Rich!

If you grew up in one of the metropolitan city of Ethiopia, you have encountered street vendors. Alas, their persuasion, for you to buy their products, was almost a nag.

"ወንጌሉም ስለ ልጁ፣ በሥጋ ከዳዊት ዘር ስለ ሆነ፣ በቅድስና መንፈስ ደግሞ ከሙታን በመነሣቱ የእግዚአብሔር ልጅ መሆኑ በኀይል ስለ ተገለጠው ስለ ጌታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ነው" 1:3-4   ይህ የምንናገርለት ወንጌል ባለቤትና ይዘት ዓለው። ወንጌል የእግዚአብሔር ነው "ለእግዚአብሔር ወንጌል የተለየ..." (1:1)። ወንጌል ባለቤት፤ ምንጭና ይዘት ስላለው የአንድ ተቋም ይዞታ አይደለም፤ ባለቤቱም እግዚአብሔር አብ ነው! ከዚህ የተነሳ ይህንን ወንጌል ማንም ሥጋ ለባሽ "የእኔ ነው" ሊለው አይችልም። እንደዚሁም ወንጌል "ባለቤት" ብቻ ሳይሆን፤ "ይዘትም" አለው! ይዘቱ ደግሞ አንድያ ልጁ ጌታ ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ነው!
