7 For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle—I am telling the truth;[a] I am not lying—and a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
1 Timothy 2:7tc Most mss (א* D2 H 33vid 1241 Mal) have ἐν Χριστῷ (en Christō) after λέγω (legō) to read “I am telling the truth in Christ,” but this is probably an assimilation to Rom 9:1. Further, the witnesses that lack this phrase are early, significant, and well distributed (א2 A D* F G P Ψ 6 81 1175 1739 1881 al lat sy co). It is difficult to explain the shorter reading if it is not authentic.
