Affected Teaching
This verse shows Jesus as the Creator and Healer. The verse tells us that the hand was restored as whole as the other one. The modern versions leave off the last phrase that his arm was now made whole “as the other” which shows Jesus restoring the arms as not only healing the man but as the Creator who creates the human body. Jesus designed our arms and here he restores the man’s arms as a whole pair. Omitting the last part does not give information concerning the fact that the arms were now healed and equal. A surgeon can restore an arm but that does not mean it is as good as if it was never injured. By omitting that important part, Jesus is denied the glory as our Creator. There is no reason as to why that phrase has been omitted in the modern versions. It just basically seems like another attack on the Lord Jesus Christ. Remember it was the heretic Gnostic Marcion (circa 85-160 A.D) that butchered the Gospel of Luke and I would not doubt for a minute that this was his handiwork.
