Now here's a bit a strange manuscript evidence from 20 centuries after
writing and 4 centuries after printing - (no fixed number of copied
characters per roll or page in a folio)
I looked up Luke 22:43-44 in a non-electronic Bible (Pocket RSV 1971). It
was right on the page break in the centre of the book - and verses 43 and 44
do not exist in this edition - there is no tear in the page - they are
simply not printed! What could we say about that technology that built this
bible! If Wieland had not asked the question, I would never have noticed
So RSV doesn't have the verses anywhere - and they are bracketed in Nestle
Greek Text - how would they get into John's gospel if they were not in
Luke's at all?

Catch the foxes for us,
the little foxes that make havoc of the vineyards,
for our vineyards are in flower. (Song 2.15)

Do you think it is possible or even probable (Harnack) that John got the
paragraph Jo 12:27-30 from Lk 22:43-44? He changed and adapted them
considerably: the angel and the blood have been removed, the
strengthening is not for Jesus, but for the others.
