Re: "Through the Faith of Christ" Gal 3:26


The UBS text does not list every unit of variation. It was intended 
for translators, not New Testament researchers.  The Nestle-Aland 
complement of the UBS text would likely have the variant but I am 
home and my copy is at the office.  As for Lightfoot, I expect that 
the papyrus was not known to him--it may still have been undiscovered.
