Papyrus 122 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by 122, is an early copy of the New Testament in Greek. It is a papyrus manuscript of the Gospel of John.

Description[edit]

To the present day survived only two pieces from one leaf. The surviving texts of John are verses 21:11-14,22-24, they are in a fragmentary condition. The manuscript paleographically had been assigned to the 4th or 5th century (INTF).[1] It was written by irregular hand.

It uses nomina sacra. Name Ιησους (Jesus) is abbreviated to ΙΗΣ (majority of manuscripts used abbreviation ΙΣ). Number "one hundred and fifty-three" is written in abbreviation — ΡΝΓ.

The Greek text of this codex probably is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type.

Text[edit]

In John 21:14 omitted word Ιησους (Jesus), just like in Codex Washingtonianus,[2] rest of the manuscripts contain this word, usually with an article (ο Ιησους).[3]

Translation
Ανεβη ουν Σιμων Πετρος και ειλ So Simon Peter went aboard and
κυσεν το δικτυον εις την γην μεσ hauled the net ashore, full
τον ιχθυων μεγαλων ΡΝΓ και το of large fish, a 153 of them; and
σουτων οντων ουκ εσχισθη το δικ although there were so many, the net was not
τυον λεγει αυτοις ο ΙΗΣ δευτε αριστη torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have
σατε ουδεις δε ετολμα των μαθητων ε breakfast.” Now none of the disciples dared
ξετασαι αυτων Συ τις ει ειδοτες οτι ask him, “Who are you?” They knew
ο ΚΣ εστιν ερχεται ΙΗΣ και λαμ it was the Lord. Jesus came and took
βανει τον αρτον και διδωσιν αυτοις the bread and gave it to them,
και το οψαριον ομοιως τουτο ηδη and so with the fish. This was now
τριτον εφανερωθη τοις μαθηταις the third time that He was revealed to the disciples
εγερθεις εκ νεκρων after He was raised from the dead.

In red colour missing letters.
