Affected Teaching
Here is a verse which has been subjected to both sides of the Gnostic hatchet. In the first part of the verse Jesus is asking the question to His disciples if they understood the parables which He just taught them. Their response was “Yes Lord.” If you notice some of the versions have left out “Jesus said unto them.” This identifies Jesus as the one asking the question. Then they all omit “Lord” which is His title of deity by which His disciples are addressing Him. The Gnostics did not believe that Christ was the Lord from Heaven so they have deleted His divine title in this verse. Once again the King James Bible gives us the complete picture and leaves nothing to speculation and that is how the Word of God should be, not chopped up according to unbelievers.
