3rd John, verse 12
Shlama l'Kulkhon,

I run into unexplainable mysteries from the 'Western 5' (books not in the 22-book Peshitta canon but are in the 27-book Peshitto canon).
John Gill doesn't show any match for this additional phrase in any of the other ancient copies. It seems to stand alone among texts now extant. I'll highlight in bold red the extra phrase that the Peshitto rendering of 3rd John verse 12 has that all of the other ancient versions have left out---

Of Demetrius, there is good testimony from every one, and from the church, and from the truth itself: and we also bear [him] testimony, and ye know that our testimony is true. (Murdock's translation)

Any clues as to how this got there? It's remarkable that not one single Greek text now extant contains this phrase!! It doesn't look like an extrapolation, interpolation or anything like that...hmmm...rather curious! <!-- s:lookround: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/lookround.gif" alt=":lookround:" title="Look Round" /><!-- s:lookround: -->
