Re: [XTalk] earliest MS witnesses
- Yes, I believe P45 has only 11.1; the prayer proper (in verses 2-4) is absent, I think.
Nothing that I can find before century IV for Matthew 6, so far as manuscripts are concerned. I am not sure about patristic quotations.

It has Lk. 11:1 but not the rest of the LP, yes?

So .. not really anything before the 4th century?
