Abstract

Although not listed in the critical apparatus of Luke 22:41-44 in NA²⁷, P. Oxy. 2383 (P⁶⁹) is an important early witness to the omission of these verses. Since the publication of the editio princeps in 1957 of this small papyrus fragment, no new editions have appeared. In light of recently completed images, this edition offers several significant new and improved readings, while at the same time confirming that this fragment witnesses the omission of Luke 22:41-44. Based on the new images, it is also apparent that the fragment was subject to subsequent scribal correction in at least two instances
