"We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Col. 1:3)—As this rendering stands, it might be understood as bringing out a distinction between "God" and "the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ;" but an examination of the Greek original suggests that no such distinction was intended by the apostle. A number of early manuscripts simply omit altogether the word translated "and"; while, if it is retained, it can justly be rendered "even." Moffatt suggests: "We always thank the God and Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ." and the Twentieth Century New Testament: "We never fail to thank God, the Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ."
