2013信仰之旅(13): 圣腓力祭堂(St. Philippe Martyrion) 和棉花堡(The Cotton Castle)


古时候一个名叫Phrygia的王国有一个有名的城市,叫希拉波立(Hierapolis),它座落在现今土耳其城市Denizli和Pamukkale附近。那里有圣腓力祭堂和棉花堡。圣腓力祭堂是四世纪末五世纪初建的,为了纪念死在希拉波立的圣腓力。腓力是耶稣的十二门徒之一,后期在Greece,Syria, 和Phrygia传讲福音。圣经里关于腓力的经文有:

John 1:43-44 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.” Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida.

John 1:45-47 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote-Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.””Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked. “Come and see,” said Philip. When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “He is a true Israelite, in whom there is nothing false.”

Matthew 10:2-4 These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James  son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

John 6:4-7 The Jewish Passover Fest was near. When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?” He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do. Philip answered him, “Eight months’ wages would not buy enough bread for each one to have a bite.”

John 12:20-22 Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the Feast. They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.” Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.

John 14:8-9 Philip said, “Lord, show up the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’

棉花堡因像一座雪白的城堡而得名。棉花堡高160米,长2700米,泉水在富有碳酸盐矿物的梯田流动。棉花堡何其顶上的希拉波立古城于1988年共同被列为世界遗产。
