Chapter Summary

P66 is a codex that originally contained the entire Gospel of John, and is usually dated to about 200. However, Herbert Hunger assigned P66 an earlier date, contending in fact that it belongs if not in the first half, then at least in the middle of the second century. The most reliable list of singular readings of P66 appears to consist of the combination of the several lists compiled by Fee in the course of his study. A very useful listing of the readings of P66 is provided in the IGNTP volume on the papyri in John. This work does not give a separate listing of the singular readings of P66, but collates the papyrus against the Textus Receptus and also cites the corrections in the papyrus. The scribe shows remarkably few signs of being willing to make extensive changes to his Vorlage.
