Chapter Summary

This chapter turns to the second of the Lukan writings, and completes the survey of the gospels with an examination of the Fourth Gospel. Fourteen papyri are of the right date although P63 dated c.500 and P93 of the fifth century are marginal. Some of these papyri can be dismissed: P80 has no variants shown in NA27 or UBS3 or UBS4. P90 is extant only where the text of D text-type has been supplemented. D is not extant where P63 survives in John 3 but the two are extant in John 4:9-10. P66 and P75 do not support the significant readings by D at 5:3 concerning the stirring of the water. Similarly these two papyri do not agree with D in including the pericope of the adulteress.

Keywords: fourth Gospel; John 4:9-10; Lukan writings; papyri
