Papyrus 21 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by siglum P21, is an early copy of the New Testament in Greek. It is a papyrus manuscript of the Gospel of Matthew, it contains only Matthew 12:24-26.32-33. The manuscript paleographically had been assigned to the early 300-350 A.D. century.
The manuscript is written in large upright uncial letters.
The Greek text of this codex probably is a mixture of text-types. Aland placed it in Category III.
In Matthew 12:25 it has textual variant ιδων δε (instead of ειδως δε) in agreement with Codex Bezae, corrector b of the Codex Sinaiticus, 892*, the Latin text of Codex Bezae (itd), k, c, s, copbo. In 12:32 it lacks the words αυτω ουτε, which is the original reading. αὐτῷ οὔτε.
It is currently housed at the Muhlenberg College (Theol. Pap. 3) in Allentown (Pennsylvania).
