Acts 1:23

Context
1:23 So they 1  proposed two candidates: 2  Joseph called Barsabbas (also called Justus) and Matthias.

1 tc Codex Bezae (D) and other Western witnesses have “he proposed,” referring to Peter, thus emphasizing his role above the other apostles. The Western text displays a conscious pattern of elevating Peter in Acts, and thus the singular verb here is a palpably motivated reading.

2 tn Grk “So they proposed two.” The word “candidates” was supplied in the text for clarity.
