Understanding the Gospel of Luke

Many people have very strong opinions about what they believe the Bible teaches. And since there are so many different churches with different beliefs and different practices, it is clear that they cannot possibly all be right. In every disagreement about what the Bible means at least one party has to have it wrong; and at times all the parties involved may have it wrong. That is because nobody has perfect understanding of everything that relates to biblical statements and teachings.

One major source of such conflicts in understanding, even amongst the various churches of God, is THE VAST NUMBER OF MISTRANSLATIONS found in virtually every translation of the Bible that is available to us, including the KJV...

Luke 16:18 reads: "WHOSOEVER PUTTETH AWAY HIS WIFE, AND
MARRIETH ANOTHER, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth
her that is put away from [her] husband committeth adultery."

And Matthew 19:9 reads: "And I say unto you, WHOSOEVER SHALL
PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, except [it be] for fornication, AND SHALL
MARRY ANOTHER, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which
is put away doth commit adultery."

One verse after quoting from the context of Matthew 5, Luke is now
quoting from the context of Matthew 19. Now Jesus Christ didn't say it
both ways, the way Matthew has recorded it, and also the way Luke has
recorded it. The point is: Matthew has recorded Jesus Christ's words
correctly, and Luke has left out one very vital qualifying phrase, that
phrase being "except it be for fornication (Greek "porneia")". This
qualifying phrase "except it be for porneia" has an enormous impact on
Jesus Christ's overall statement, and its omission in Luke's account is
certainly not due to divine inspiration.

Luke also provides no context at all for this statement about divorce and
remarriage. The subject is suddenly introduced for no apparent reason.
Matthew's account provides the correct context for this statement. Luke's
account here is hardly the result of divine inspiration.
