Textual Character

The Alands say that this manuscript is "at least normal" (i.e., the text is somewhere between "normal" and "strict"). According to Metzger, P32 shows agreement with and with F and G. Since F and G, a nearly identical manuscripts, go back to the same archtype, it is quite possible that P32 could be linked to the same source.


The words are slightly separated. Accents, breathings and punctuation marks are absent.
