Chapter Summary

D text-type is more distinctive in the Lucan writings, so one may be on a more rewarding investigation when they turn away from Mark to Luke's Gospel. Certainly one can have a higher number of papyri to look at. There are five: P4, P7, P45, P69, P75. Other papyri containing Luke are either too late for the survey (P3, P42, P97) or (in the case of the fourth to fifth century P82) lack any relevant variants in NA27. Of the five relevant papyri P69 will be worth exploring, since Alands, Text lists it as a 'D'-type manuscript. P69, allegedly a manuscript of the 'D' text-type according to the Alands' classification is extant in Luke 22:41, 45-48, 58-61. But P69 is a small manuscript and its relationship to D need be no different from that of P45 which has extensive remains of Luke.

Keywords: D text-type; Lucan writings; Luke
