Error - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words


[ 1,,G4106, plane ]
akin to planao (See ERR, No. 1), a wandering, a forsaking of the right path, See James 5:20, whether in doctrine, 2 Peter 3:17; 1 John 4:6, or in morals, Romans 1:27; 2 Peter 2:18; Jude 1:11, though, in Scripture, doctrine and morals are never divided by any sharp line. See also Matthew 27:64, where it is equivalent to 'fraud.'" * [* From Notes on Thessalonians by Hogg and Vine, p. 53.]

"Errors" in doctrine are not infrequently the effect of relaxed morality, and vice versa.

In Ephesians 4:14 the RV has "wiles of error," for AV, "they lie in wait to decive;" in 1 Thessalonians 2:3, RV, "Error," for AV, "deceit;" in 2 Thessalonians 2:11, RV, "a working of error," for AV, "strong delusion." See DECEIT. Cp. planetes, "a wandering," Jude 1:13, and the adjective planos, "leading astray, deceiving, a deceiver."

[ 2,,G51, agnoema ]
"a sin of ignorance" (cp. agnoia, "ignorance," and agnoeo, "to be ignorant"), is used in the plural in Hebrews 9:7.
