Rod Decker has a post on the one word sentences in the New Testament:

Matt 11:9 προφήτην;

Mark 4:3 Ἀκούετε.

Luke 7:26 προφήτην;

Acts 15:29 Ἔρρωσθε.

Rom 3:9 προεχόμεθα;

Rom 3:27 ἐξεκλείσθη.

2 Pet 3:18 ἀμήν. (There is a similar instance of ἀμήν in the short ending of Mark.)

If we get down to the number of letters, that makes 2 Peter 3:18 the verse that contains the shortest sentence.
