John 17:5

New Testament • Re: Jn 17:5 position of παρὰ σοί

cwconrad asked, “Am I alone in finding the position of παρὰ σοί here strange?” Information available at, inter alia,, indicates you’re not alone.

In several English translations of patristic allusions related to John 17:5, Irenaeus, Novatian, and Origen put παρὰ σοί in front of πρὸ τοῦ τὸν κόσμον εἶναι. Also, Ignatius omitted παρὰ σοί, and Hippolytus left out the phrase πρὸ τοῦ τὸν κόσμον εἶναι παρὰ σοί.
