Matthew 7:14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

14 How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.

False Prophets.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 7:15–20 Christian disciples who claimed to speak in the name of God are called prophets (Mt 7:15) in Mt 10:41; Mt 23:34. They were presumably an important group within the church of Matthew. As in the case of the Old Testament prophets, there were both true and false ones, and for Matthew the difference could be recognized by the quality of their deeds, the fruits (Mt 7:16). The mention of fruits leads to the comparison with trees, some producing good fruit, others bad.
