P46 Tendencies in 2 Corinthians (Part 5)

This is Part 5 of a 6 Part series on the text critical paper that I presented at the 2013 SBL Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD. Here is Part 1Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4. I focused on the textual tendencies of the Ancient Greek manuscript called P46 which is the oldest extant manuscript that we have of Paul’s letters. For more information upon this manuscript see The University of Michigan’s Library andThe Chester Beatty Library.

APPENDIX ONE

            These charts demonstrate the inconsistencies of P46 in 2 Corinthians primarily in how it agrees and disagrees with other MSS throughout the entire epistle.
