Colossians 4:12

Context
4:12 Epaphras, who is one of you and a slave 1  of Christ, 2  greets you. He is always struggling in prayer on your behalf, so that you may stand mature and fully assured 3  in all the will of God.

1 tn See the note on “fellow slave” in 1:7.

2 tc ‡ Strong Alexandrian testimony, along with some other witnesses, suggests that ᾿Ιησοῦ (Ihsou, “Jesus”) follows Χριστοῦ (Cristou, “Christ”; so א A B C I L 0278 33 81 365 629 1175 2464 al lat), but the evidence for the shorter reading is diverse (Ì46 D F G Ψ 075 1739 1881 Ï it sy Hier), cutting across all major texttypes. There can be little motivation for omitting the name of Jesus; hence, the shorter reading is judged to be original. NA27 has ᾿Ιησοῦ in brackets, indicating some doubts as to its authenticity.

3 tn Or “filled.”
