The Bezan “we” of Acts need not be taken into consideration. The text is as follows: “In these days there came prophets down from Jerusalem to Antioch, and there was great rejoicing; and when we had assembled, one of them, Agabus by name, said,” etc.

(Codex Bezae, D, Acts f.). In the Bezan text reads ‘and when we were assembled together’, introducing Luke into the narrative at Antioch before the first missionary journey, whereas in the usual text he does not appear until Paul reaches Troas on the second missionary journey; in29 the Decree of the Council of Jerusalem, as given in the Bezan text.

The Gradual Awakening of Paul’s Awareness of His Mission to the Gentiles. Read-Heimerdinger, The Bezan Text, pp. argues for the benefit of focusing upon an actual manuscript, like Codex D, rather than upon ‘a hypothetical text reconstructed from a range of witnesses’ in the Western text, because a focused study leads to more certain results.
