Description

When making decisions about variants in New Testament manuscripts, most scholars use a combination of internal and external evidence. Difficulties arise, however, when the evidence for a particular passage is contradictory. Such is the case for Matthew 6:33 and the inclusion or omission of the phase τοῦ θεοῦ. NA28 includes this phrase in brackets, while the SBLGNT omits it. This paper presents an in-depth analysis of the internal and external evidence pertaining to Matthew 6:33, before agreeing with the SBLGNT that τοῦ θεοῦ should be omitted from Matthew 6:33.
