Luke (16:29-31)

"Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.'
"'No, father Abraham,' he said, 'but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.'
"He said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.'"

In Chinese Translation (路加福音 16)

29 亚伯拉罕说:他们有摩西和先知的话可以听从。
30 他说:我祖亚伯拉罕哪,不是的,若有一个从死里复活的,到他们那里去的,他们必要悔改。
31 亚伯拉罕说:若不听从摩西和先知的话,就是有一个从死里复活的,他们也是不听劝。

There is nothing else I can say. The world today is exactly what Abraham answered to the rich man. Although Jesus had risen from the dead, "they will not be convinced". By contrast, they simply deny the truth.

They will see if they expect to watch. They will know if they want to learn. They will hear if they pay attention to listening.

But they do not.

Abraham told the truth. Blessed are the ones who follow the truth!
