Ac 15:22

NET © Notes

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.

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