forgive us our sins in LP/DP
- Just wondering out loud if the use of our in the LP/DP petition for the
forgiveness of sins has any significance -- i.e., that it is the
remission of the particular "sins" of the disciples /as a group/, not,
as is usually supposed, those of each member therein ("forgive each of
us our individual sins") that is the object of the petition.
Is there any resonance here with Tom Wright's idea that "forgiveness of
sins" means "end of exile"?

- Would we exclude the beginning of Jn. 8 because of it's problematic nature in the MS tradition? I would hope it would appear somewhere in your list.
