Description

This fragment omits the entire detailed content of Jesus’ prayer in Luke 22:42–45a.<ref>Comfort, The Text of the Earliest New Testament Greek Manuscripts (2001), p. 472. </ref> At Luke 22:61 Peter (not Jesus) is looking. Claire Clivaz has suggested that <math>\mathfrak{P}</math>69 (P. Oxy 2383) should be regarded 'as a witness to a Marcionite edition of Luke's Gospel'<ref>Clivaz,C., The Angel and the Sweat Like 'Drops of Blood' (Lk 22:43–44): P69 and f13, HTR 98 2005), p. 420 </ref>. Peter M Head feels that 'the suggestion that <math>\mathfrak{P}</math>69 is a manuscript of Marcion’s Gospel is a very clever idea which is however not proven and not the most plausible context for making sense of this fascinating manuscript'<ref>http://evangelicaltextualcriticism.blogspot.com/2006/07/not-marcionite-manuscript.html</ref>.

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Western text-type. According to Aland text is very free, "characteristic of precursors of the D-text", therefore Aland placed it in Category IV.<ref name = Aland>Kurt Aland, and Barbara Aland, The Text of the New Testament: An Introduction to the Critical Editions and to the Theory and Practice of Modern Textual Criticism, transl.
