SPYRIDON HELLENIC ORTHODOX CHURCH S. RIDGELAND AVE. PALOS HEIGHTS, IL WWW. SAINT- SPYRIDON.ORG Catechism 101 The Book of Genesis features a variety of sibling rivalries, family conflicts, and interesting generational tensions. All of these are magnificently displayed in the story of Isaac and Rachel, and their children Esau and Jacob. The boys were twins. Esau was the first born, a favorite of his father Isaac, a hunter and a carnal man. Jacob was born moments after Esau, a gentle soul, a homebody, a favorite of his mother Rachel. According to the laws of that time, Esau had the birthright of the first born, the lion s share of the parental inheritance. He would have been considered the patriarch and leader of the family following Isaac s death. He would act as the priest of the family in offering sacrifices on behalf of all his descendants. Finally, Esau would have become a link in the genealogy of Jesus Christ and a forefather of the Messiah.

Even though Esau was born just minutes before his twin brother Jacob, he had the rights and privileges of the first-born. Yet he gave those rights away. In Genesis 25:30-34 we read: Esau came from the field, and he was faint: And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he swore unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright. Later on, when Isaac was dying, it was Jacob who received the blessing of the firstborn in the place of his brother Esau. He instead received a curse. Even though this was accomplished by trickery, it was nevertheless reflective of the fact that Esau had forsaken his birthright for nothing more than a bowl of soup. At first glance, one would condemn Esau of foolishness. How could he give up so much for so little? At the same time, one would condemn Jacob of exploitation, taking advantage of his brother s weakness and willingness to make such a foolish trade. God allowed this incident to take place not only as a lesson in family dynamics but as an example for all of us who would become the first-born by adoption through faith in Jesus Christ. Let us look at this incident in more detail to understand what this means. Why did Jacob ask for the birthright from his brother? Was he interested in wealth? Did he seek patriarchal powers or fame? From the events that followed we realize that his motivation was neither power nor wealth. After all, as soon as he received Isaac s blessing, he fled with no possessions and no status. He was, however, interested in one thing: The messianic succession. He knew that the Messiah would come from his father s bloodline. Jacob wanted to be the link in that bloodline. He wanted to be a forefather of Christ, connected with the Messiah in a way that only the firstborn could be. When Esau despised his birthright and traded it for a bowl of soup, he did not give up wealth or power; he gave up his relationship with his descendants among whom would be the Messiah. Seeing this birthright in the messianic light we realize the real and immense value of what Esau so easily gave up. Jacob, in his sound mind, sought the birthright not for material gain but the for the sake of being considered a forefather of Christ. All of us, baptized in the name of the Holy Trinity, have been adopted as the firstborn, brothers and sisters to the firstborn of the Virgin, offered to the Church as firstborn, with the rights and privileges of the firstborn, destined to receive the blessings of our Heavenly Father unto the ages of ages as the firstborn by grace. Here are the words in our baptismal prayers: That, being planted in the likeness of Your death through Baptism, he 2 The Voice
3 (the baptized) may become a sharer of Your Resurrection; and, preserving the Gift of Your Holy Spirit, and increasing the deposit of Grace, he may attain unto the prize of his high calling, and accounted among the number of the first-born, whose names are written in Heaven. Sadly, even as the firstborn by grace, we all come to give up that birthright through falling into sin. We trade our birthright for no more than a bowl of soup. Sometimes, that bowl of soup is literally a violation of our fasting rule. Most of the time, that bowl of soup stands for anything that we place higher than our birthright. Through every sin we come to despise our birthright, our relationship to the Messiah, our connection with him, just as Esau did so long ago. In the Letter to the Hebrews, St. Paul touches on this very issue: Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. (Hebrews 12:16-17) When Esau sought the blessing that he had earlier despised he instead received a curse. There was no blessing and no hope for him. He stands for all those unrepentant souls who, at the Second Coming, will cry out for the blessing they had earlier despised, for the birthright they gave up for so little, for the forgiveness of sins that they never took advantage of, and they will receive nothing but a curse. Let us trade, like Jacob, all that we have, to receive the birthright that rightly only belongs to Christ. Let us desire that birthright by pleading with Christ now who freely offers us adoption as the firstborn, through Confession and Holy Communion. Let us never despise that birthright, considering it more valuable that anything this world has to offer. Amen. Fr. Tilemahos Alikakos DIAKONIA AGAPES HELP THE NEEDY Christ Is Risen!

14 14 The Voice ΚΟΙΝΟΤΙΚΑ ΝΕΑ Ο Άγιος Νεομάρτυς Αργύριος γεννήθηκε το 1788 στην Επανωμή της Θεσσαλονίκης από τον Αστέριο και τη Βασιλική, το γένος Ντουγιούδη. Σε νεαρή ηλικία ήλθε στην Θεσσαλονίκη, όπου προσλήφθηκε από κάποιον ράπτη ως υπηρέτης. Κατά τις ημέρες εκείνες κάποιος Χριστιανός από τη Σοχό βρισκόταν κλεισμένος στη φυλακή του πασά της Θεσσαλονίκης για κάποιο έγκλημα που είχε κάνει. Μην έχοντας να πληρώσει τα χρήματα που του ζητούσε ο πασάς, τον απειλούσε ότι θα τον κρεμάσει. Μπροστά στην απειλή του θανάτου ο φυλακισμένος αποφάσισε να αλλαξοπιστήσει. Το γεγονός αυτό χαροποίησε τους Αγαρηνούς, οι οποίοι αμέσως τον έβγαλαν από την φυλακή και τον πήγαν σε ένα καφενείο στην τοποθεσία Ταχτάκαλα με σκοπό να τον μυήσουν στη μουσουλμανική θρησκεία. Ο Αργύριος, που είχε πληροφορηθεί το γεγονός, εισήλθε και αυτός στο καφενείο και άρχισε να τον ελέγχει για το παράπτωμά του και ταυτοχρόνως να τον παρακινεί, για να επιστρέψει και πάλι στην Ορθόδοξη πίστη. Η στάση του αυτή προκάλεσε τόσο πολύ τους Γενίτσαρους, που όρμησαν επάνω του και άρχισαν να τον γρονθοκοπούν τόσο άγρια, ώστε θα τον σκότωναν, εάν δεν ανέστελλε την οργή τους η ελπίδα μήπως και μπορέσουν να τον προσελκύσουν στην δική τους πίστη. Προσπάθησαν, λοιπόν, απειλώντας τον ότι θα τον σκοτώσουν, να τον αναγκάσουν να αλλαξοπιστήσει. Σα βροντή ακούσθηκε η φωνή του Νεομάρτυρα: «Είμαι Χριστιανός και δεν αρνιέμαι την πίστη μου. Δόξα και τιμή μου ο Σταυρός του Χριστού. Επιθυμία μου είναι να αποθάνω για την πίστη και την αγάπη του Χριστού». Οι Αγαρηνοί τότε οδήγησαν τον Αργύριο στον κριτή, ενώπιον του οποίου προσπάθησαν και πάλι να τον μεταπείσουν μεταχειριζόμενοι πότε απειλές και πότε κολακείες και υποσχέσεις για δώρα και αξιώματα. Μετά από δύο ημέρες, οι Γενίτσαροι, επανέλαβαν και πάλι τις προσπάθειές τους, χωρίς όμως αποτέλεσμα. Ζήτησαν λοιπόν από τον κριτή να διατάξει την εκτέλεσή του. Αυτός όμως, βλέποντας ότι ο Αργύριος δεν είχε διαπράξει κάποιο αδίκημα άξιο θανάτου, προσπάθησε να κατευνάσει την οργή των εξαγριωμένων Τούρκων και να τους πείσει πως δεν είναι δίκαιο να σκοτώσουν έναν αθώο άνθρωπο. Εκείνοι ταράχθηκαν και εξαγριώθηκαν εναντίον του και έτσι ο κριτής διέταξε την διά απαγχονισμού θανάτωσή του. Έτσι, σε ηλικία μόλις δεκαοκτώ ετών, το 1806 και ημέρα Παρασκευή, ο Άγιος Νεομάρτυς Αργύριος οδηγήθηκε σε ένα τόπο λεγόμενο Καμπάν (σημερινό Καπάνι), στην κεντρική αγορά της πόλεως, όπου και απαγχονίσθηκε και επισφράγισε την ομολογία του στον Χριστό με τη θυσία του αίματός του.
