“Many false prophets
Will arise up.
They will lead
καὶ πολλοὶ ψευδοπροφῆται ἐγερθήσονται καὶ πλανήσουσιν πολλούς
This little saying about false prophets is unique to Matthew. Jesus said that many false prophets or pseudo prophets would rise up (καὶ πολλοὶ ψευδοπροφῆται ἐγερθήσονται), so that they would deceive or lead many astray (καὶ πλανήσουσιν πολλούς). In the midst of their tribulations, false prophets would lead many of the followers of Jesus astray. Who were these false prophets?
