Why Can’t Luke 23:17 Be Found In Our Modern Bible Translations?

The same verse or a very similar verse appears (and is preserved) as Matthew 27:15 and as Mark 15:6. This verse is suspected of having been assimilated into Luke at a very early date. But it is missing from Luke in such early manuscripts as p75 (early Third century), A B K L the Sahidic version, a Bohairic ms, and an Italic ms. On the other hand, it does appear in א W ƒ1, 13 and some Syriac and Bohairic MSS, which indicates that its assimilation into Luke had begun at a fairly early time.
