Abstract:

This article demonstrates that there are strong intrinsic and transcriptional grounds to posit the priority of the “shorter text” of 1 Cor 8:2–3 and explores the grounds for the longer text’s appearance in the context of a developing early Christian interest in divine reciprocity in love and knowledge.
