Affected Teaching
Here is another attack upon the Lord Jesus Christ. On the Mount of Transfiguration, Peter is speaking about building tabernacles for Moses and Elijah and while he was speaking, God from Heaven spoke and told all that Jesus is His beloved Son and we are to hear Him. The word which is omitted in the modern versions is “beloved.” This word is in the singular meaning God was speaking about Jesus alone. The word “beloved” means to be dearly loved and that is what God is saying that He dearly loves His Son. The Gnostics did not believe that Jesus was the Son of God and therefore, in disbelief, they believed then how could Jesus be beloved of God? So in keeping with their belief system, they removed it. It is another example of Gnostic butchering.
