Chapter Summary

One LXX manuscript worth discussing in detail, due to its uniqueness and antiquity, is Papyrus 967. This particular papyrus is dated from the late 2nd to early 3rd century CE, and therefore pre-hexaplaric. The main body of the papyrus as discovered in the early 1930s, and is considered Egyptian in origin; however, the origin of its parent text is uncertain. One of the issues often discussed regarding papyrus 967 is the ?missing' pericope of 36:23c-38 that deals with the gift of the new heart and new spirit. The question is whether this pericope was omitted by some form of scribal error, or if papyrus 967 actually represents a true picture of the Greek Vorlage, and perhaps the Hebrew Urtext. With the premise that papyrus 967 is a viable witness to the Hebrew Urtext of Ezekiel, this chapter explores the theological significance of papyrus 967's chapter order, and the received order.
