The Early Text of Luke

The Early Text of Luke

(p.121) 7 The Early Text of Luke
The Early Text of the New Testament

Juan Hernández

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines six pre-fourth-century papyri containing Luke’s Gospel: P4, P7, P45, P69, P75, and P111. The individual scribal habits, textual relationships, and transmission and social histories of each manuscript are considered. Editorial features — including nomina sacra, numerical abbreviations, and the presence or absence of ekthesis, paragraphos, and medial points — are noted and compared. Attention is also paid to the manuscript’s use (public or private) and production setting (controlled or uncontrolled). The relationship between each manuscript’s scribal habits and textual relationships receives sustained attention, particularly in the case of P75. The close textual alignment between Luke-P45 and the chief Alexandrian witnesses (P75-B-א) is also demonstrated for the first time in the literature.

Keywords:   Gospel of Luke, scribal habits, New Testament textual criticism, P45, P75, Western non-interpolations, New Testament papyri
