OPSOMMING

In hierdie artikel word die brief aan die Hebreërs nagegaan om moontlike elemente te verken wat in pastorale sorg en bediening toegepas kan word. Nadat sekere begrippe verken is wat vir verskeie verkondigingsnuanses in Hebreërs gebruik word, word gefokus op die begrip "parakalein" in Hebreërs as 'n sentrale aanduiding vir pastorale bediening. Die spektrum van die daaropvolgende ondersoek sluit aspekte soos die volgende in: die reiniging van sonde deur die groot Hoëpriester as fundering vir pastorale sorg en medelye en empatie in die werk van die groot Hoëpriester. Verder word gesigspunte gebied op pastorale verhouding, die begrip "therapon" in Hebreërs as spe-sifieke begrip vir dienaar, die opdrag aan gelowiges om herders vir mekaar te wees, spiritualiteit en die moontlike singewing van menslike lyding. Laastens word die pastorale aspekte van geloof, hoop en volharding bespreek en die artikel word afgesluit met 'n samevatting van die pastorale kernelemente in Hebreërs. Hierdie artikel word opgedra aan professor Ben de Klerk, 'n gewaardeerde kollega en vriend in die Fakulteit Teologie aan die Noordwes-Universiteit. Hy het hom as vakman verdiep in die verskillende vakke in Praktiese Teologie, en in besonder in die vak Liturgiek. Ek dra juis hierdie artikel aan hom op, want hy het 'n pastorale hart vir die kudde van die groot Herder, en hy ervaar ook self die sorg van die Goeie Herder.

Kernbegrippe: geloof (betekenismoontlikheid in Hebreërs), Hebreërs, Groot Hoëpriester, sinduiding van lyding, spiritualiteit, volharding


ABSTRACT

In this article the letter to the Hebrews is scrutinised in order to investigate possible elements that can be applied in pastoral care and ministering. After indicating certain expressions used for different nuances of proclaiming in Hebrews, the expression "parakalein" as central concept for pastoral care will be focused on. The spectrum of the ensuing research includes aspects like the great High Priest's purification of sin as foundation for pastoral care, and sympathy and empathy in the work of the great High Priest. Furthermore, viewpoints on the following are given: a pastoral relationship, the Hebrew term, "therapon", as specific expression for a caring minister; the instruction to the members of the congregation to be pastors for one another; spirituality, and possible indications of the meaning of suffering. Finally the pastoral elements of faith, hope and perseverance are discussed. In conclusion a summary of the most important pastoral elemens is given.

Key concepts: faith (meaning of in Hebrews), Hebrews, Great Highpriest, perseverance, spirituality, meaning of suffering
