Papyrus 72 and the Bodmer Miscellaneous Codex

Wasserman, Tommy LU (2005) In New Testament Studies 51(1). p.137-154
Abstract
The Bodmer miscellaneous codex contains not only P72 (Jude, 1-2 Peter), but eight other biblical and Christian writings as well. Three independent sections (I-II-III) of the codex have been identified and a different sequence than the traditional is suggested as original. There are strong connections between sections I and III and they probably followed in sequence. The most significant connection is P72 copied by one single scribe, who displays both a liturgical and theological tendency. This scribe may have been the final collector of the codex, a miscellany of an apologetic character, bearing the marks of incipient orthodoxy.
