1: ἰῶτα

(Strong's #2503 — Noun Neuter — iota — ee-o'-tah )

from the Heb. yod, the smallest Hebrew letter, is mentioned by the Lord in Matthew 5:18 (together with keraia, "a little horn, a tittle, the point or extremity" which distinguishes certain Hebrew letters from others) to express the fact that not a single item of the Law will pass away or remain unfulfilled.
