John 6:47

Context
6:47 I tell you the solemn truth, 1  the one who believes 2  has eternal life. 3 

John 6:68

Context
6:68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life.

1 tn Grk “Truly, truly, I say to you.”

2 tc Most witnesses (A C2 D Ψ Ë1,13 33 Ï lat and other versions) have “in me” (εἰς ἐμέ, eis eme) here, while the Sinaitic and Curetonian Syriac versions read “in God.” These clarifying readings are predictable variants, being motivated by the scribal tendency toward greater explicitness. That the earliest and best witnesses (Ì66,75vid א B C* L T W Θ 892 pc) lack any object is solid testimony to the shorter text’s authenticity.

3 tn Compare John 6:40.
