Mark 11:22 God's faith or faith in God?

Date: Thu Feb 20 1997 - 04:38:43 EST

Mark 11:22 has the phrase, "Have faith in God" -- K21. Other translations
read,"Have the faith of God. Those are the two most common renderings.
 However, I have heard that the Greek should really read, "Have the God kind
of faith" or "Have the faith of God".

Not being a Greek scholar, what do you have to say about this (putting your
own theology aside, please)?

Below, I listed four translations that read that way or similiar...

     Have God's faith -- The Bible in Basic English
     Have the kind of trust that comes from God -- The Jewish New Testament

     Have God's faith -- Numeric English New Testament

     Take hold on God's faithfulness -- Montgomery New Testament
