Biblical scholar on Pope’s change to the Our Father

Fr. Reto Nay: The text of the Our Father is passed down to us in the New Testament, which was written in ancient Greek. The phrase “and lead us not into temptation” is contained both in Mt 6:13 and Lk 11:4 with identical wording: καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν. This means that the wording of the petition in question cannot be blamed on a transmission error or misunderstanding.
