The manuscript evidence for PARABAINWN is P (025) which dates from the 9th
century, Psi (044) which dates from the 8th or 9th century, 033 which dates
from the 10th century, 1739 which dates from 10th century, the Majority text
manuscripts and the all the Syriac versions. So for all practical purposed
the evidence is pretty slim, hence the absence of comment in the UBS GNT
PROSAGWN here refers to the heretics claims to have "advanced" knowledge of
Christ. John says they have "advanced" beyond the doctrine or teaching of
Christ and they have gone beyond Christ. He is borrowing their terms that
the Gnostics are using and throwing it back at them.
