Matthew 6:30 Corrected – O you of little faith.

“But if the Almighty so arrays the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will he not much more do so for you little faithful ones?” (Mat. 6:30, Good News of Messiah).

 

The difference here is “little faithful ones” vs. “you of little faith”; If you value the work put into the Good News of Messiah New Testament. When Matthew produced his Greek edition, he related what Messiah said as ολιγοπιστοι < ολιγοπιστος < ολιγος; here is the footnote in GNM explaining this.

Matthew 6:30 Ye of little faith

Matthew 6:30 is one of the many texts that fall victim to the Church’s constant mistranslations of Scripture. It may not seem like a big deal to some, but in the end all the little bits add up to the difference between inventing your own religion and holding faithful to Messiah by obeying his Torah.
