This fragment of an Old Latin Text of 1 John is quoted by Augustine in his Commentary on the Johannine Epistles and is part of the ICC volume on the Johannine Epistles, but has been extracted for use in the Bible-based reports of LDLS. This extraction makes it possible to easily compare the text of this fragment with the Latin Vulgate and other NT texts.
For over one hundred years, the International Critical Commentary series has held a special place among works on the Bible. It has sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis—linguistic and textual no less than archaeological, historical, literary and theological—with a level of comprehension and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other series.
No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought.
