The small Greek letter i used in the Greek NT of Matt. 5:18 for yod, the smallest Hebrew letter. AV translates ‘one jot’. It is a saying of Jesus recorded by Matthew to indicate that Jesus was not bent on destroying all that was most precious in the heritage of Israel, though in fact there were few Christians around in Matthew's own day who held that the Law of Moses was of obligation right down to the last iota.
