ʻOku tau houngaʻia moʻoni pea ʻoatu hotau ʻofa kia Sisitā Peki, Sisitā ʻOloleti pea mo Sisitā Tomisoni pea mo e poate ʻa e Fineʻofá.

Kuo tau mātā kimuí ni e lahi ʻo e fie ʻilo ki he Siasi ʻo Sīsū Kalaisi ʻo e Kau Māʻoniʻoni ʻi he Ngaahi ʻAho Kimui Ní. Ko e meʻa ʻeni ia ʻoku tau tali lelei he ko ʻetau tefitoʻi taumuʻá ke akoʻi ʻa e ongoongolelei ʻo Sīsū Kalaisí pea mo ʻEne tokāteliné ki he funga ʻo e māmaní (vakai, Mātiu 28:19–20; T&F 112:28). Ka kuo pau pē ke tau pehē naʻe ʻi ai pea ʻoku kei ʻi ai ha puputuʻu fekauʻaki mo ʻetau tokāteliné mo e anga hono fokotuʻú. Ko e kaveinga ia ʻoku ou fie lea ki ai he ʻaho ní.

Naʻe akoʻi ʻe he Fakamoʻuí ʻa ʻEne tokāteliné ʻi he vahevahenga ʻo taimí pea naʻe fāifeinga lahi fau ʻa ʻEne kau ʻAposetolo ke maluʻi Ia mei he tukufakaholo mo e fakakaukau fakapoto ʻoku halá. ʻOku fakamatala e ngaahi ʻIpiseli he Fuakava Foʻoú ki ha ngaahi meʻa ne hoko ʻoku fakafōtunga ai e fakatuʻutāmaki mo e mafola ʻa e hē mei he moʻoní ʻa ia ne ʻosi hoko he lolotonga e ngāue ʻa e kau ʻAposetoló.1

Ne faʻa fakamāmaʻi e ngaahi senituli hokó ʻe he huelo ʻo e ongoongoleleí ʻo aʻu mai ki he senituli 19, ʻa ia ne mafoa ai e ata ngingila ʻo hono Fakafoki mai ʻo e Ongoongoleleí ki māmaní pea ‘e toe ʻi māmani ai e ongoongolelei ʻo Kalaisí ʻi hono kakató mo hono fonú. Naʻe kamata ʻa e ʻaho nāunauʻiá ni ʻi ha pou maama “naʻe lahi ange hono ngingilá he laʻaá” (Siosefa Sāmita—Hisitōlia 1:16), Naʻe ʻaʻahi mai e ʻOtua ko e Tamaí mo Hono ʻAlo ko Sīsū Kalaisí ki he talavou ko Siosefa Sāmitá ʻo kamataʻi ai ha meʻa ʻe iku hoko ko ha taumalingi mai ʻo e fakahaá, fakataha mo e mālohi mo e mafai fakalangí.

ʻOku tau maʻu ʻi he ngaahi fakahā ko ʻení ha meʻa te tau ala ui ko e tefitoʻi tokāteline ʻo e Siasi ʻo Kalaisi kuo toe fokotuʻu he māmaní. Naʻe fakamatalaʻi ʻe Sīsū tonu pē ʻa e tokāteline ko iá ʻaki e ngaahi lea ko ʻeni ʻoku lekooti ʻi he Tohi ʻa Molomoná: Ko ha Fakamoʻoni ʻe Taha ʻo Sīsū Kalaisí:

“Ko ʻeku tokāteliné ʻeni, pea ko e tokāteline ia ʻa ia kuo tuku kiate au ʻe he Tamaí; pea ʻoku ou fakamoʻoniʻi ʻa e Tamaí, pea ʻoku fakamoʻoniʻi au ʻe he Tamaí, pea ʻoku fakamoʻoniʻi ʻe he Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní ʻa e Tamaí mo au; pea ʻoku ou fakamoʻoniʻi kuo fekau ʻe he Tamaí ki he kakai fulipē, ʻi he potu kotoa pē, ke nau fakatomala pea tui kiate au.

“Pea ko ia ia ʻokú ne tui kiate au mo papitaisó, ʻe fakamoʻui ia; pea ko kinautolu ia te nau maʻu ʻa e puleʻanga ʻo e ʻOtuá.

“Pea ko ia ia ʻoku ʻikai tui kiate au mo papitaisó, ʻe malaʻia ia.

“… Pea ko ia ia ʻoku tui kiate aú, ʻoku tui ki he Tamaí foki; pea ʻe fakamoʻoni au kiate ia ʻe he Tamaí, he te ne ʻaʻahi kiate ia ʻaki ʻa e afi mo e Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní. …

“Ko e moʻoni, ko e moʻoni, ʻoku ou pehē kiate kimoutolu, ko ʻeku tokāteliné ʻeni, pea ʻilonga ʻa kinautolu ʻoku langa aí, ʻoku nau langa ki heʻeku maká, pea ʻe ʻikai ikuna ʻa kinautolu ʻe he ngaahi matapā ʻo helí” (3 Nīfai 11:32–35, 39).

Ko ʻetau pōpoakí ʻeni, ʻa e maka ʻoku tau langa aí, ʻa ia ko e fakavaʻe ʻo e meʻa kotoa pē ʻi he Siasí. Pea hangē ko e meʻa kotoa ʻoku haʻu mei he ʻOtuá, ko e tokāteliné ni ʻoku maʻa, ʻoku mahino, ʻoku mahino-ngofua—ʻo aʻu pē ki ha valevale. ʻOku tau fakaafeʻi loto fiefia e taha kotoa ke ne tali ia.

ʻOku tau tui ʻi he Siasi ʻo Sīsū Kalaisi ʻo e Kau Māʻoniʻoni ʻi he Ngaahi ʻAho Kimui Ní, “ki he ngaahi meʻa kotoa pē kuo fakahā mai ʻe he ʻOtuá, mo e ngaahi meʻa kotoa pē ʻokú Ne fakahā mai ʻi he taimi ní, pea ʻoku mau tui te Ne kei fakahā mai ʻamui ha ngaahi meʻa lalahi mo mahuʻinga ʻo kau ki he Puleʻanga ʻo e ʻOtuá” (Ngaahi Tefito ʻo e Tui 1:9). ʻOku ʻuhinga ʻeni neongo ʻoku lahi ha ngaahi meʻa ʻoku teʻeki ai ke tau ʻilo, ka ko e ngaahi moʻoni mo e tokāteline ko ia kuo tau ʻosi maʻú, ʻe kei hokohoko atu pē ʻetau maʻu iá ʻo fakafou ʻi he fakahā fakalangi. ʻI he ngaahi tui fakalotu ʻe niʻihi, ʻoku talaki ai ʻe he kau poto fakalotú ʻa e tuʻunga mafai fakafaiako tatau mo e kau taki fakalotú, pea hoko leva e ngaahi meʻa fakatokāteliné ko ha feʻauʻauhi ʻo e fakakaukaú ʻi he ongo kulupú ni. ʻOku falala ʻa e niʻihi ki he ngaahi fakataha alēlea fakaʻekumenikale (ecumenical coucils) ʻo e Kuonga Lotolotó mo ʻenau ngaahi akonakí. Ko e toengá ʻoku tō ʻenau fakamamafá ki he ngaahi fakaʻuhinga ʻa e kau ako fakalotu hili e pekia ʻa e kau ʻAposetoló pe ʻi he founga fakaʻuhingaʻi mo fakamatalaʻi ʻo e Tohi Tapú. ʻOku tau fakamahuʻingaʻi ʻa e poto ʻokú ne tokoniʻi ʻa e mahinó, ka ʻi he Siasí he ʻahó ni, ʻo tatau pē mo e kuonga muʻá, ko hono fokotuʻu ko ia e tokāteline ʻo Kalaisí pe fakatonutonu ha ngaahi hehema fakatokāteline, ko ha meʻa ia ʻoku fai mai ʻe he ʻEikí ʻi he fakahā fakalangi kiate kinautolu ʻokú Ne fakakoloaʻi ʻaki ʻa e mafai fakaeʻaposetoló.2

ʻI he 1954, naʻe fakamatalaʻi ʻe Palesiteni J.  Lūpeni Kalake ko e Siʻí, ne hoko he taimi ko iá ko e tokoni ʻi he Kau Palesitenisī ʻUluakí, ʻa e founga ʻoku fakamafola ai ʻa e tokāteliné he Siasí pea mo e fatongia mātuʻaki mahuʻinga ʻo e Palesiteni ʻo e Siasí. Naʻá ne lea ʻo fekauʻaki mo e kau mēmipa ʻo e Kau Palesitenisī ʻUluakí pea mo e Kau ʻAposetolo ʻe Toko Hongofulu Mā Uá, ʻo pehē: “ʻOku totonu ke tau manatuʻi ʻoku ʻi ai ha Kau Taki Māʻolunga ʻe niʻihi kuo tuku kiate kinautolu ha ui makehe; ʻoku nau maʻu ha meʻafoaki makehe; ʻoku fokotuʻu kinautolu ko e kau palōfita, kau tangata kikite, mo e kau tangata maʻu fakahā, ʻo ne ʻoange ai kiate kinautolu ha fakakoloa fakalaumālie makehe fekauʻaki mo ʻenau akoʻi ʻa e kakaí. ʻOku nau maʻu ʻa e totonu, mālohi, pea mo e mafai ke fakahā ʻa e fakakaukau mo e finangalo ʻo e ʻOtuá ki Hono kakaí, ʻi he malumalu ʻo e mālohi mo e mafai fakalūkufua ʻo e Palesiteni ʻo e Siasí. ʻOku ʻikai foaki ki he toenga ʻo e Kau Taki Māʻolungá ʻa e fakakoloa mo e mafai makehé ni ʻi honau fatongia ke akoʻí; ʻoku ʻi ai honau fakangatangata, pea ko e fakangatangata ʻi honau mālohi mo e mafai ke akoʻí, ʻoku tatau ia mo e toenga ʻo e kau ʻōfisa mo e mēmipa kotoa pē ʻo e Siasí, he ʻoku ʻikai ha taha ʻiate kinautolu kuo fakakoloaʻi fakalaumālie ke hoko ko ha palōfita, tangata kikite, mo ha tangata maʻu fakahā. ʻIkai ngata aí, ʻoku maʻu ʻe he Palesiteni ʻo e Siasí ha fakakoloa mahulu mo makehe ange ʻi he tafaʻaki ko ʻení, ʻo hangē ko ia ne fakamahino atú, he ko ia ʻa e Palōfitá, Tangata Kikite, mo e Tangata Maʻu Fakahā ki he Siasí fakakātoa.”3

ʻOku fakahaaʻi fēfē ʻe he Fakamoʻuí Hono finangaló mo e tokāteliné ki he kau palōfitá, kau tangata kikité, mo e kau tangata maʻu fakahaá? Te Ne lava ke fakahoko ia ʻi ha talafekau pe ʻe Ia tonu pē. Te Ne lava ʻo folofola ʻaki Hono leʻo pē ʻOʻoná pe ʻi he leʻo ʻo e Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní—ko ha fetuʻutaki ʻa e Laumālié ki he laumālié ʻa ia ʻe lava ke fakahoko ʻi he ngaahi lea pe ʻi he ngaahi ongo ʻokú ne ʻomi ha mahino ʻoku mahulu atu ʻi he leá pē (vakai, 1 Nīfai 17:45; T&F 9:8). ʻE lava ke Ne fetuʻutaki fakatāutaha ki Heʻene kau tamaioʻeikí pe ʻi ha fakataha alēlea (vakai, 3 Nīfai 27:1–8).

Te u ʻoatu ha fakatātā ʻe ua mei he Fuakava Foʻoú. Ko e ʻuluakí ko ha fakahā naʻe fai ki he ʻulu ʻo e Siasí. ʻI he kamataʻanga ʻo e tohi Ngāué, ʻoku tau ʻilo ai naʻe fakahoko ʻe he kau ʻAposetolo ʻa Kalaisí ʻa e pōpoaki ʻo e ongoongoleleí ki he kakai Siú ʻataʻatā pē, ʻo muimui pē ki he sīpinga ngāue ʻa Sīsuú (vakai, Mātiu 15:24), ka ʻi he taimi ní, ʻo fakatatau mo e taimi-tēpile ʻa e ʻEikí, kuo hokosia ha liliu. Naʻe misi ʻa Pita ʻi heʻene ʻi Sopá, ʻo ne mamata ki ha fanga monumanu kehekehe naʻe tukutukuhifo ki māmani mei he langí ʻi ha “fuʻu tupenu kuo fakakavei ʻi hono kapá ʻe fā” (Ngāue 10:11) pea naʻe fekauʻi ia ke ne “tāmateʻi mo kai” (Ngāue 10:13). Naʻe momou ʻa Pita he naʻe ʻi ai ha fanga monumanu ai naʻe “taʻe-maʻa” ʻo fakatatau mo e fono ʻa Mōsesé, pea kuo teʻeki ai ke maumauʻi ʻe Pita ʻa e fekau ki hono kai iá. Neongo ia, naʻe toe ongo mai ʻa e leʻó kia Pita ʻi heʻene misí, “Ko ia kuo fakamaʻa ʻe he ʻOtuá, ʻoua naʻá ke pehē ʻoku ʻikai ngofua” (Ngāue 10:15).

Naʻe toki mahino e ʻuhinga ʻo e misí ni he naʻe hili pē iá, kuo aʻu mai ha kau tangata ko e fekau mei he ʻeikitau Loma ko Koniliusí, ki he fale ʻo Pitá mo ha kole ke ʻalu ange ʻo akoʻi honau ʻeikí. Ne ʻosi tānaki ʻe Koniliusi hano kāinga mo hano ngaahi kaungāmeʻa tokolahi, pea ʻi he ʻilo ʻe Pita ʻoku nau tatali fiefia ke tali ʻene pōpoakí, naʻá ne pehē:

“Kuo fakahā ʻe he ʻOtuá kiate au, ke ʻoua naʻá ku ui ko e taʻe-tapu pe taʻe-maʻa ha tangata ʻe tokotaha. …

“… Ko e moʻoni ʻoku ou ʻiló ni ʻoku ʻikai filifilimānako ʻa e ʻOtuá ki he kakaí:

“Pea ʻi he kei lea ʻaki ʻe Pita ʻa e ngaahi leá ni, ne tō hifo ʻa e Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní kiate kinautolu kotoa pē naʻe fanongo ki he leá.

“Pea naʻe ofo ʻa kinautolu [ne ʻi ai mo Pitá] … koeʻuhí kuo huaʻi hifo ki he Senitailé foki ʻa e [meʻafoaki] ʻo e Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní.

“… Pea toki pehē ʻe Pita,

ʻI he meʻá ni pea mo e fakahā kia Pitá, naʻe liliu ai ʻe he ʻEikí ʻa e founga angamaheni ʻo e Siasí ʻo ne ʻomi ha mahino fakatokāteline kakato ange ki Heʻene kau ākongá. Ko ia ne fakalahi ai hono malangaʻi ʻo e ongoongoleleí ke fakakau e faʻahinga kotoa ʻo e tangatá.

Ne ʻi ai ha fakakikihi pe ʻoku totonu ke kei hoko ʻa e kamu ne fie maʻu he fono ʻa Mōsesé, ko ha fekau ʻo e ongoongoleleí pea mo e Siasi ʻo Kalaisí (vakai, Ngāue 15:1, 5). “Pea naʻe fakataha ʻa e kau ʻaposetoló mo e mātuʻá ke nau fakakaukau ki he meʻá ni” (Ngāue 15:6). ʻOku ʻikai kakato ʻetau lekooti ki he fakataha alēlea ko ʻení, ka ʻoku talamai naʻe hili ha “lahi ʻenau aleá” (Ngāue 15:7), naʻe tuʻu ʻa Pita, ko e ʻAposetolo pulé, ʻo ne fakahā e meʻa naʻe fakamahino ki ai ʻe he Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní. Naʻá ne fakamanatu ki he fakataha alēleá ni ko e taimi naʻe kamata ai ke malangaʻi ʻa e ongoongoleleí ki he kakai Senitaile taʻe-kamu ʻi he fale ʻo Koniliusí, naʻa nau maʻu ʻa e Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní ʻo tatau tofu pē mo e kakai Siu ului kuo kamú. Naʻá ne pehē naʻe ʻikai hanga ʻe he ʻOtuá, “ʻo [fakafaikehekeheʻi] ... kitautolu mo kinautolu, ʻo ne fakamaʻa honau lotó ʻi he tui.

“Pea ko ʻeni, ko e hā ʻoku mou ʻahiʻahi ai ki he ʻOtuá, ke ʻai ki he kia ʻo e kau ākongá ʻa e haʻamo, ʻa ia naʻe ʻikai ke faʻa kātakiʻi ʻe heʻetau mātuʻá pe ko kitautolu?

Hili iá pea lea ʻa Paula, Paanepasa, pea mahalo mo ha niʻihi kehe ʻo poupouʻi e lea ʻa Pitá, pea fokotuʻu ʻe Sēmisi ke fakahoko ʻa e tuʻutuʻuní ni ʻi ha tohi ki he Siasí, pea naʻe kau fakataha ʻa e fakatahá “ʻo loto taha” (Ngāue 15:25;vakai foki, veesi 12–23). ʻI he tohi naʻe fakahā ai ʻe he kau ʻAposetoló ʻenau tuʻutuʻuní, naʻa nau pehē ai, “Naʻe lelei ki he Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní, pea mo kimautolu” (Ngāue 15:28), pe ko hono ʻai ʻe tahá, naʻe hoko mai e tuʻutuʻuni ko ʻení ʻi ha fakahā fakalangi he Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní.

ʻOku fakahoko he ʻahó ni ʻa e ongo founga tatau ko ʻení ʻi he Siasi ʻo Sīsū Kalaisi kuo fakafoki maí. ʻE lava ke lea ʻaki pe fakaʻuhingaʻi ʻe he Palesiteni ʻo e Siasí ha tokāteline ʻo makatuʻunga ʻi ha fakahā kiate ia (vakai, sīpingá,T&F 138). ʻE lava foki ke fakahaaʻi mai e ngaahi fakamatala fakatokāteliné ʻi ha fakataha alēlea ʻo e Kau Palesitenisī ʻUluakí mo e Kōlomu ʻo e Kau ʻAposetolo ʻe Toko Hongofulu Mā Uá (vakai, sīpingá,Fanongonongo Fakamafaiʻi Fika 2). ʻE faʻa kau he tālanga ʻa e fakataha alēleá hano fakakaukauʻi ha ngaahi potu folofola toputapu, ngaahi akonaki ʻa e kau taki ʻo e Siasí pea mo e founga ngāue he kuohilí.
