1 Corintios 4:1

 Pregunta:

¿Cuál es la traducción de la palabra Juperéte? ¿Cuál es el correspondiente vocablo en el griego? ¿Hay alguna otra información de importancia relacionada con el Juperéte que usted desee compartir con nosotros?

 
Respuesta:

πηρέτης  (juperétes) es una palabra compuesta de juper (debajo) + éretes (remero) y se refiere al remero que estaba bajo la autoridad de otro.  Era el que trabajó en el nivel más bajo del barco.  Da énfasis a la sujeción de este individuo a otro.  La traducción al español es “servidor” u “oficial”.  El verbo correspondiente es ρέσσω erésso que significa “remar”.

Su traducción literal es : “remador debajo” o “remador inferior”.  Su traducción práctica es “siervo” o “ministro” (1 Corintios 4:11 Corintios 4:1

32 The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to arrest him. 45 The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, “Why didn’t you bring him?” 46 The officers answered, “No man ever spoke like this man!” 3 Judas then, having taken a detachment of soldiers and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons. 12 So the detachment, the commanding officer, and the officers of the Jews, seized Jesus and bound him, 18 Now the servants and the officers were standing there, having made a fire of coals, for it was cold. They were warming themselves. Peter was with them, standing and warming himself. 22 When he had said this, one of the officers standing by slapped Jesus with his hand, saying, “Do you answer the high priest like that?” 36 Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not of this world. If my Kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight, that I wouldn’t be delivered to the Jews. But now my Kingdom is not from here.” 6 When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him, they shouted, saying, “Crucify! Crucify!” Pilate said to them, “Take him yourselves, and crucify him, for I find no basis for a charge against him.”

22 But the officers who came didn’t find them in the prison. They returned and reported, 26 Then the captain went with the officers, and brought them without violence, for they were afraid that the people might stone them. 5 When they were at Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. They had also John as their attendant. 16 But arise, and stand on your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose: to appoint you a servant and a witness both of the things which you have seen, and of the things which I will reveal to you;

).  Su responsabilidad es a Aquel que está por encima de todos (Jesucristo) y Quien nos dejó el ejemplo de servicio a pesar de ser el Maestro de todos.  Esta filosofía de vida es exactamente la opuesta del mundo secular y, lamentablemente, de la mayoría del mundo religioso, incluyendo muchos que ostentosamente llevan el título de “Ministro” como si fuera una posición de autoridad elevada en vez de la posición irónicamente “elevada” de servidor de todos.
