Verses omitted from Luke in the CNTR text

The CNTR Greek text omits Luke 17:36 and Luke 23:17 and Luke 22:43 and 44.

Luke 17:36 (NKJV)

“Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left.”

This verse is found in the KJV and NKJV and in a few other Bibles. The verse is in brackets in some Bibles, including the NASB, and it is omitted completely in other Bibles, including the NIV.

The same thought is found in Matthew 24:40 anyway, and Matthew 24:40 is in the CNTR text.

Here is the Greek text of Luke 17:36 including the numeric values of the words.

Luke 23:17 (NKJV)

... (for it was necessary for him to release one to them at the feast).

This verse is in brackets in most Bibles, including the KJV and NKJV and NASB. It is omitted completely in a few other Bibles, including the NIV.

The same thought is found in Mark 15:6 anyway, and Mark 15:6 is in the CNTR text.

Here is the Greek text of Luke 23:17 including the numeric values of the words.

Luke 22:43-44 (NKJV)

[43] Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.
[44] And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

This thought is found nowhere else in the Bible. The verses are unique. They are in virtually all Bible translations, and they are not in brackets. However, Dr Bunning of CNTR obviously has strong reasons for excluding the two verses.
