Mat 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. HP: This verse has been raised on many occasions. I am no GK expert by any stretch, yet I cannot help but wonder at this text. When looking at the Nestle-Aland Greek English NT text, and then looking in SEC of the Bible, I fail to find the word "God" in the text itself, at least in the manner the SEC of the Bible shows the word "God" to consist of in the GK. I have read that the text in the Critical text, Alexandrian, Nestle-Asland simply says "Why do you ask me about what is good? There is one (thing) that is good, and if you would enter into life, keep the commandments." I have to wonder myself if this is not a correct conclusion from the GK text itself. If Jesus was saying that none were Good but God, why would He seemingly exclude Himself, by saying that none were Good 'but God?' Would that not have been taken by those around Him to indicate that He was not God and that He was not Good? If He was using this text to say that He was God, where was the outcry of 'blasphemy' so clearly noted when they understood Him to be indicating Himself equal with God?? We all believe in the Deity of Christ, so don't even think about drawing that into question or that somehow I am denying His Deity. I am not. I just see a discrepancy between the GK and the manner so many interpret this verse. Thoughts?
