Properly, a "witness" (martys) is "one who testifies" (martyreo) by act or word his "testimony" (martyrion) to the truth.正確,“證人”(martys)的“證明”(martyreo)的行為或一詞,他的“證詞”(martyrion)的真相。 This act of testifying is called his "testimony" (martyria).這種行為被稱為作證他的“證詞”(martyria)。 In ancient days, as at the present, this was a legal term designating the testimony given for or against one on trial before a court of law.在古代,截至目前,這是一個法律術語,指定或反對一個在審判之前,法院的證詞。 In Christian usage the term came to mean the testimony given by Christian witnesses to Christ and his saving power.在基督教的使用這個詞來指基督教見證基督和他的節省電力的證詞。 Because such testimony often means arrest and scourging (cf. Matt. 10:18; Mark 13:9), exile (Rev. 1:9), or death (cf. Acts 22:20; Rev. 2:13; 17:6) the Greek was transliterated to form the English word "martyr," meaning one who suffers or dies rather than give up his faith.因為這樣的證詞往往意味著逮捕和鞭打(太10:18;馬可福音13:9),流放(啟示錄1:9),或死亡(參徒22:20,啟2:13; 17: 6)希臘音譯組成英文單詞“烈士”,即一個人受損或死亡,而不是放棄他的信仰。 However, in the NT suffering was an incidental factor in the word.然而,在NT的痛苦是這個詞的偶然因素。

A thorough study of witnessing would necessitate a study of the whole Bible.見證一個深入的研究,將須整本聖經的研究。 Such words as preaching, teaching, and confessing would have to be included.這樣的話,作為傳道,教學,承認被包括在內。 Greek words (fifteen in number) stemming from "witness" (martys) are used over two hundred times in the NT.希臘字(15號)從“證人”(martys)中得到超過200倍,在新台幣。 The most common usage is found in the Johannine writings, in which seventy-six instances are found.最常見的用法是在約翰的著作,其中76的情況下被發現。 Acts has thirty-nine instances and the Pauline writings thirty-five.使徒行傳39實例和寶蓮著作35。

Leaving aside those uses of the word that refer to man's witness to men (cf. III John 12), God's witness to men (cf. Acts 13:22), man's witness against men (cf. Matt. 18:16), and miscellaneous uses (cf. John 2:25), we will consider the distinctively Christian use of the words.撇開那些使用這個詞是指人的見證男人(參見約翰三書12),神的見證男人(參見使徒行傳13:22),對男性的人的見證(參太18:16),雜項用途(參見約翰福音2:25),我們會考慮鮮明的基督教使用的話。

First, there are those testimonies which are meant to establish the incarnation and the truth of Christianity.首先,是那些證詞,這是為了建立的化身和基督教的真理。 In John's Gospel, where this is primary, we find instances of all the main witnesses.在約翰福音中,這是主要的情況下,我們發現所有的主要證人的實例。 John the Baptist "bears testimony" (martyreo) to Jesus as the coming Savior of the world (John 1:7-8, 15, 32, 34; 3:26; 5:32).施洗約翰“作為未來世界的救主(約翰1:7-8,15,32,34,3:26,5:32),耶穌承擔見證”(martyreo)。 The works that Jesus did were a testimony that he came from the Father (John 5:36); this explains why John called the miracles "signs" (semeion).的作品,耶穌做見證,他從父親(約翰福音5:36),這解釋了為什麼約翰被稱為奇蹟的“標誌”(semeion)。 The OT Scriptures are a testimony to Jesus (John 5:39); this thought is behind most of the NT quotations from the OT.舊約聖經的見證耶穌(約翰福音5:39);這種思想是最落後的NT報價從舊約。 After the resurrection the main evidences of the truth of Christianity are the ministry of the Holy Spirit (John 15:26), the witness of the disciples to the resurrection (Acts 1:22), and the signs and wonders by which God attested the ministry of the apostles and the churches (Heb. 2:4).復活後的主要依據基督教的真理是聖靈的事工(約翰福音15:26),復活的門徒的見證(使徒行傳1:22),和神蹟奇事的上帝見證事工和教會的使徒(希伯來書2:4)。

The pattern of Christian missionary and evangelistic activity is set in the NT.基督教傳教和布道活動的模式被設置在新台幣。 Several principles emerge.出現的幾個原則。
