Bible Query - Early Manuscripts of Matthew

April 29, 2012 version

 

Q: In Mt, what are early New Testament manuscripts preserved today?

A: Here are many of them.

p1 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 2) Mt 1:1-9,12,14-20; (not 2:14) (c.200 A.D.) Alexandrian text

Here are published dates for this manuscript

3rd century - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament

3rd century - 1975 - Aland 3rd edition

3rd century - 1990 - Comfort, Early Manuscripts & Modern Translations of the New Testament

3rd century - 1998 - Aland et al. 4th revised edition

Middle 3rd century, similar to p69 - 1999 - Comfort, The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts

There is a cover with writing. While O’Callaghan thinks it might be Matthew 2:14, Philip Comfort in The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts p.29 says it is not because it is in a different hand and there is a greater margin about the three broken lines than the rest of Matthew. This text might have been a subhead descriptor or title.

The Text of the New Testament (1968) p.245 says this also includes 1:23, but other sources do not include this verse. A photograph of part of p1 is in The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts p.29.

p19 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 9) Mt 10:32-11:5

Mainly Western Text

Fourth or fifth century - 1968 The Text of the New Testament

p21 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 10 ) Mt 12:24-26, 31-33 (Agrees with Bezae Cantabrigiensis and corrected Sinaiticus)

Fourth or fifth century - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament

p25 (=Papyrus 16388, now lost, it was in Berlin prior to World War II) Mt 18:32-34; 19:1-3, 5-7, 9-10

End of 4th century - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament. Western Text

p35 Mt 25:12-15,20-23 (3rd century)

Possibly 4th century - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament. Between Alexandrian and Western text

p37 (=Ann Arbor 1570) Mt 26:19-52 (middle 3rd century) The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts has a photograph of part of p37 on p.130. It is in two pieces and was purchased in Cairo Egypt in 1924. The handwriting is similar to letters of Heroninos (256 and 260 A.D.)

Third/fourth century - 1969 - The Text of the New Testament.

p44b Mt 17:1-3,6-7; 18:15-17,19; 25:8-10 also John 9:3-4; 12:16-18 (6th to 7th century)

The Text of the New Testament p.251 also says it has verses 10:8-14.

6th to 7th century - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament

p45 Chester Beatty I (all 4 gospels and Acts) (100-150 A.D.) (formerly thought to be late 2nd or early 3rd century A.D.) (Mt 20:24-32; 21:13-19; 25:41-26:39, parts of Mark, Luke, and John) The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts has a photograph showing part of p45 on p.146. On p.150-151 it says that the copy was a loose paraphrase, where he tries to bring out the thought of each phrase. A General Introduction to the Bible p.389 says the original scroll was about 220 leaves, of which we have 30 leaves. 2 of those 30 leaves are from Matthew.

3rd century - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament

3rd century - 1975 - Aland et al. Third Edition

3rd century - 1998 - Aland et al. Fourth Revised Edition

Late 2nd or early 3rd century - 1999 - The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts.

p53 (= Papyrus Michigan Inv. 6652) Mt 26:29-40 (minus parts of 35-36) and Acts 9:33-38; 3 letters of the 124 letters in 9:39; 9:40-10:1. (c.260 A.D.) The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts has a photograph showing part of p653 on p.360. The Text of the Earliest New Testament Greek Manuscripts has a photograph of it on p.370. The date is based on similarities to letters of Heroninos date c.260 A.D. It is a mixed text. There are six places (8 words) in Matthew where it differs from the Nestle-aland text, but these are distinctive to p.53 so these are not counted by more or Nestle-Aland.

Third century - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament

p62 4th century Mt 11:25-30

p64 (Magdalen Papyrus), p67 ca.200 A.D. The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts has a photograph showing part of p64 on p.32, and part of p67 on p.34. p4 (containing much of Luke 1-6), p64, and p67 are all part of the same manuscript. p64 has preserved Matthew 26:7, fewer than half the letters of verse 8; 26:10,14-15,22-23,31-33 (on three fragments). p64 was purchased in Egypt in 1901, but not made available to scholars until 1953. p67 has preserved Matthew 3:9,15; 5:20-22,25-28.

There is a small inconsistency here. The Text of the earliest new Testament Greek Manuscripts and The Complete Text of the earliest New Testament Manuscripts gives the first verse in Matthew that it contains as Mt 26:7. However, Aland et al. 4th revised edition has p64 showing part of Matthew 5:22. Aland et al. 3rd edition has p64 showing part of Matthew 5:22,25 with a (vid) after it for “indicates apparent support for a given reading in a manuscript whose state of preservation make complete verification impossible.”

c.200 A.D. - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament Does not say it has verse 8

125-150 A.D. - 1999 - The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts. Says it has verse 8.

p70 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 24) Mt 2:13-16; 2:22-3:1; 11:26-27; 12:4-5; 24:3-6,12-15. (3rd century) The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts has a photograph showing part of p70 on p.464. It only mentions verses 11:26-27; 12:4-5. It says it had a distinctly different epsilon, and the handwriting looks similar to P. Med. 13 (of Ecclesiastes) from the 3rd century.

3rd century - 1968 The Text of the New Testament.

p71 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 2385) contains Mt 19:10-11,17-18 (4th century)

4th century - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament. Agrees with Vaticanus

p73 contains Mt 25:43; 26:2-3 (7th century) Mixed text.

no date - 1968 - The Text of the New Testament mentions this but gives no date.

p77/p103 contains Mt 23:30-39 (p77); 13:55-57; 14:3-5 (mid to late 2nd century)

p83 contains Matthew 20:23-25,30-31; 23:39;24:1,6 (6th century)

p86 Mt 5:13-16,22-25 (c.300 A.D.)

p101 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 4401) third century contains Mt 3:10-12; 3:16-4:3

p102 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 4402) c.300 A.D. Mt 4:11-12, 22-23

p103 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 4403) contains Mt 13:55-57; 14:3-5 (2nd to 3rd century)

p104 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 4404) (early to middle second century) contains Mt 21:34-37, 43, 45?

p105 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 4406) contains Mt 27:62-64,28:2-5 (5th/6th century)

p110 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 4494) contains Mt 10:13-14,25-27 (4th century)

pAntinoopolis 2.54 third century, contains the Lord’s Prayer. Mt 6:10-12. It appears that this manuscript originally was only the Lord’s prayer.

Uncil 0171 (c.300 A.D.) contains Mt 10:17-23, 25-32

Vaticanus [B] (325-350 A.D.) and Sinaiticus [Si] (340-350 A.D.) contain all of Matthew. A photograph of a page of the Gospel of Matthew from the Codex Sinaiticus is in the New International Dictionary of the Bible p.2004.

Q: In Mt, what are the manuscript variations with the Textus Receptus, the basis for the KJV?

A: Jay P. Green, Sr. in the Interlinear Bible records variations in approximately 183 words between the Textus Receptus and the majority text. These are in 135 places. In addition, he also records approximately 28 words (20 places) of alternates.

 

Q: In Mt, what are some of the manuscript variations?

A: The Gospel of Matthew has a total of 18,346 Greek words in 1,071 verses. This is the count in both Aland et al. 3rd edition and Aland et al. 4th revised edition, including 126 words in brackets. The text of the 3rd edition is on-line at http://www.greekbible.com. The Gospel of Matthew has an estimated word-for-word accuracy of 97.0 %, with 558 words in question. These are in 214 verses (222 places). Of the 222 places, 142 are single word, 31 are double word, and 18 are triple word.

   Below are the variations with the primary choice and the top alternate choice. Aland et al. 4th revised edition and 3rd edition, from which this primarily is based, also give a judgment of the degree of certainty per variation. The list below does not include many places where the evidence for a particular reading is so strong that the alternatives are very unlikely. See the next question for which manuscripts support which variants.

Mt 1:7-8 spelling of “Asa” (Byzantine Lectionary, Syriac) vs. “Asaph” (p1 [apparently] Sinaiticus, Vaticanus, Ephraemi Rescriptus, Sahidic Coptic, Bohairic Coptic, Middle Egyptian Coptic, Armenian, Ethiopian, Georgian) (1 letter difference)

Mt 6:12 “as we forgive” vs. “as we have forgiven” Metzger’s Tetual Commentary on the New Testament says, “If the original form of the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic had a verb in the perfect tense used as a present, the aorist tense in Greek would represent a mechanical translation less idiomatic than the present tense.” So in other words, this might be a translation issue from Aramaic.

Mt 6:18 “repay/reward you” vs. “repay/reward you openly” (3 words) Since Aland et al. (3rd edition) call this “virtually certain”, the Alexandrian and Byzantine families agree, and there is no early manuscript that supports the second reading, these 3 words are not counted in the totals.

Mt 9:14 “Pharisees fast much” vs. “Pharisees fast often” vs. “Pharisees fast” There is a small discrepancy here. Aland et al. shows Hilary while the Pre-Nicene Fathers do not show a quote from Hilary.

Mt 9:26 “report this” vs. “report of this”

Mt 9:34 Include verse 34 “But the Pharisees said, He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons.” (Sinaiticus, Vaticanus, Ephraemi Rescriptus) vs. verse 34 is absent (Bezae Cantabrigiensis, Diatessaron) (It is probably not important that the Diatessaron left this out, because Tatian was accurate in what he copied, he left out many verses that did not suit him theologically. (12 words)

Mt 10:37 “and whoever loves his son or daughter instead of me is not worthy of me” (12 words)

Mt 10:42 “just/only a cup of cold water” vs. “a cup of cold water” There is a small discrepancy here. Aland et al. says that Hilary has a variant here, but the early church fathers do not show a quote from hilary for Matthew 10:42.

Mt 12:15 “crowds many” vs. “many crowds”

A wicked…” vs. “He replied, a wicked…” (30 words) (Bruce Metzger in A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament 2nd edition p.33 notes that Matthew 16:2-3 is absent in manuscripts written in Egypt, where the dry climate is such that red skies do not mean rain.

This chart shows the variations of some of the manuscripts of Matthew, with the one Aland et al. views as correct labeled as “1”, the next choice “2”, and so on. Corrections to manuscripts by later scribes are not included. A question mark means it is probably but not certain the manuscript had these words. Parentheses means fragmentary or hard to read. Where there is more than one number, such as “1 /2?”, this means that one or more manuscripts in the family give the first choice, and one or more manuscripts are not clear, but appear to give the second choice. A parenthesis, such as (6), means that through translation or loss of letters are not sure, but it appears to support reading 6. There are so many manuscripts and writers that they cannot all be listed here; this shows the most significant early ones. Meg stands for Middle Egyptian Coptic.

 

Below are 51 manuscripts and early writers referencing Matthew. Other early manuscripts that do not include text with any of these variants are: p53 (Mt 26:29-40); p101 (Mt 3:10-12; 3:16-4:3); p104 (Mt 21:34-37,43,45(?); p110 (Mt 10:13-15,25-27); p.Antinoopolis 2.54 (Mt 6:10-12).
