- Affected Teaching
- In Luke 22:64, we have another attack upon the Lord Jesus Christ. This
time they have attacked and removed the part where the Lord Jesus Christ
began to suffer at the hands of the people. We are told here that they had
blindfolded Him and struck Him on the face. According to Matthew 26:67-68,
after the rulers of the Jews had examined Jesus, they began to spit on Him,
hit Him with their fists, and struck Him on the face. All of this was even
before He was delivered unto Pilate. To remove the section of Scripture in
Luke where we read that Jesus was being struck on the face, is to remove
part of the suffering He underwent for the sins of His people. Probably this
portion of Scripture was removed in the second century by a man named
Marcion who was a heretic and had a copy of the book of Luke which he
mutilated until it fit the pattern of the Arian and Gnostic beliefs. Once
again we are seeing that the modern versions are descendants of the Arian
and Gnostic views. Unfortunately, the modern version editors heartily agree
with these antichrists of the second century as they have continued to
include their ungodly attacks. Luke 22:64 is a fulfillment of two Old
Testament Prophecies, so not only are they attacking the sufferings of
Christ, they are also attacking the verity of Scripture.
- (Isa 50:6 KJV) I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them
that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
- (Micah 5:1 KJV) Now gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops:
he hath laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a
rod upon the cheek.
- How can anyone, who uses a modern version, actually
think they are using a “Holy Bible” since they have been engineered to fit
world belief systems outside of Christianity?
