Q: In 1 Jn, what are early New Testament manuscripts we have preserved today?

A: Here are many of them.

p9 (=Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 402) 1 John 4:11-12,14-17 third century. The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts p.70 has a picture of this manuscript, and it says the handwriting was not by a trained scribe, it was written carelessly, and some of the spellings are unintelligible.

Q: In 1 Jn, 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 62 words between the Textus Receptus and the majority text. These are in 21 places. 25 of the words are in one place. Green does not record any additional alternates.

 

Q: In 1 Jn, what are some of the manuscript variations?

A: The book of 1 John has a total of 2,141 Greek words in 104 verses (not counting the Johanine comma). This is the count in both Aland et al. 3rd edition and Aland et al. 4th revised edition, including 6 words in brackets. The text of the 3rd edition is on-line at http://www.greekbible.com. 1 John has an estimated word-for-word accuracy of 98.4%, with 35 words in question. (Since the 25 words of 1 John 5:7-8 is almost certainly an addition, that is not counted.) The other variations are in 27 verses (30 places). Of these, 29 are single 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.

1 Jn 1:4a "our" vs. "your" (1 letter difference)

1 Jn 1:4b "our" vs. "your" (1 letter difference)

1 Jn 3:1 "And that is what we are" vs. (absent) (New Age Bible Versions Refuted p.19 says the Greek evidence for "And such as we are" is overwhelming, and the KJV was incorrect to omit it. A Textual Commentary of the New Testament 2nd edition p.642 points out that this is in both Alexandrian and Western types of text. (2 words but not counted) (homoiteleuton)

1 Jn 3:1 "and we are" vs. (absent) (in the Byzantine Lectionary)

1 Jn 3:5 Add "our" before "sin".

1 Jn 3:13 (absent) "And" as the first word of the verse.

1 Jn 3:14 "because we love" vs. "because we love the brothers"

1 Jn 3:19a "we shall know" vs. "we know" (Byzantine Lectionary)

1 Jn 3:19b "and in this". vs. "and this"

1 Jn 3:21a "our heart" vs. "heart"

1 Jn 3:21b "accuses" vs. "accuses us"

1 Jn 3:23 "the name of his Son Jesus Christ" vs. "in his name, Jesus Christ" (only Alexandrinus and some Vulgate) (2 words not counted in the totals)

1 Jn 4:1-2 "many false prophets have gone forth into the world. By this know the Spirit of God: every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in flesh is from God. And every spirit which does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in flesh is not from God; and this is the antichrist" vs. "many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God : Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God; and every spirit which separates Jesus Christ is not of God, but is of antichrist." Vulgate, Irenaeus Against Heresies (182-188 A.D.) book 3 ch.16.8 p.443, Origen, also after Nicea Socrates 7.32 p.381. Tertullian Against Marcion 5.16 mentions both readings.) (See The Ante-Nicene Fathers vol.1 p.443)

1 Jn 4:3a "which not confesses" (Almost all early manuscripts) vs. "which loosens / denies"

1 Jn 4:3b "the Jesus" (almost all manuscripts and some Christian writers) vs. "Jesus Christ" vs. "the Jesus Christ is come in the flesh" (Philoxenian Syriac, Harclean Syriac, Armenian, Georgian) vs. "Jesus Christ in the flesh (Sinaiticus) vs. "Jesus Christ come in the flesh" (Byzantine, Ethiopic) (See New Age Bible Versions Refuted p.21 for more info.) (5 words) (probably a homoiteleuton)

1 Jn 5:2 "we do" vs. "we keep"

1 Jn 5:5 "Jesus is the Son of God" vs. "Jesus Christ is the Son of God" (only in Armenian, 33, 378) so not counted in the totals)

1 Jn 5:6a "water and blood" vs. "water and spirit"

1 Jn 5:7-8 "bear witness" vs. "bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth:" (NKJV) (25 words in Greek) The General Introduction to the Bible p.484 says, "In fact, the acceptance of the longer rendering as a genuine part of the text of 1 John violates almost every major canon of textual criticism." (Since I believe there is less than 1% chance these words were in the original, this variation is not counted in the totals.) See the discussion on 1 Jn 5:7-8 for which manuscripts support which variants.

1 Jn 5:9 "his son" (p46, original Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus, Vaticanus, Sahidic Coptic, Bhoairic Coptic, others) vs. "his son who [god] sent as a savior upon earth. And the son bore witness on earth by fulfilling the Sceriptures; and we bear witness because we have seen him, and we proclaim to you that you may believe for this reason." (only Bezae Cantabrigiensis and Byzantine among early manuscripts so not counted in the originals)

1 Jn 5:10b "God" vs. "Son" (No important manuscript has "Son" except Alexandrinus (c.450 A.D.)

1 Jn 5:13 "eternal life." (Sinaiticus, Sahidic Coptic, Ethiopic, Armenian, Syriac) vs. "eternal life, and that you may (believe /continue to believe) in the name of the Son of God." (NKJV has the second) (approximately 9 words not counted in the totals)

1 Jn 5:18a "having been born of God" vs. various clarifications by later manuscripts and writers (no counted in the totals)

1 Jn 5:18b "keeps him" vs. "keeps himself"

1 Jn 5:20a "the Son of God has come" vs. "the Son of God has come and was clothed with flesh for our sake, and suffered, and arose from the dead; he has received us and given…" (only in a few Latin manuscripts and no Greek, so 16 Latin words not counted in the totals)

1 Jn 5:20b "the True [One/God is implied]" vs. "the True God"

1 Jn 5:21 (absent) (Sinaiticus, Vaticanus, Alexandrinus) vs. Add "amen" at the end (Byzantine Lectionary and late manuscripts) (1 word not counted in the totals)

Some manuscripts add the postscript, "Of John Letter general First"

Q: In 1 Jn, how do the early manuscripts compare with each other?

A: The table below shows each of the places in question, and the number says which variant is in each manuscript.

 


1 John has an estimated word-for-word accuracy of 98.4%, with 35 words in question. (Since the 25 words of 1 John 5:7-8 is almost certainly an addition, that is not counted.). The the 1.6% where we are not sure, this chart shows the variations of early witnesses, with the one Aland et al. views as correct labeled as "1", the next choice "2", and so on. Variations where we are reasonably certain of the correct meaning are shown in non-bold font.

 

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.

 

The witnesses are ordered chronologically, as much as possible.

Columns: blue=Bible manuscript, white = early Christian writer, green=heretical writer, orange=schismatic writer, pink=strange writer
