Acts 9:5 -- Is It "I am Jesus the Nazarene?"

Acts 9:5 reads "I am Jesus the Nazarene" in one manuscript. In all others, it lacks "the Nazarene." See G. David Bauscher, Peshitta Aramaic NT Compared in Detail to Three Greek Versions and One Latin Version in Acts at page 29.

Thus, Nazarene is missing in the Byzantium, MKJV,fff

The NASB Acts 22:5, the parallel, reads:

"And I answered, 'Who are You, Lord?' And He said to me, 'I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom you are persecuting.'

The YLT too has "Nazarene." The KJV has it "of Nazareth."

The Aramaic Bible 2010 reads:

“But I answered, and I said, “Who are you, my lord?” And he said to me, “I am Yeshua the Nazarene, whom you are persecuting."

The aramaic word is Nazarene.
