    2 John

    9b :
    WH NU : the one remaining in the teaching
    var/TR : the one remaining in the teaching of Christ

    'The wording in WH NU has the best documentation,both early and diverse." (p.793)

    12 : TR NU : our joy may be full
    var/WH : your joy may be full"

    "The variant has superior documentation." (p.794)

    3 John

    8a : WH NU : we ought to support such men
    var/TR : we ought to receive such men

    Comfort says that the WH NU reading has superior attestation. The variant has inferior,late attestation. The WH NU reading "speaks of greater commitment on the part of believers." (p.796)

    9 : WH NU : I wrote something to the church
    var/TR : I wrote to the church
    var 2 : I would have written to the church

    Once more,the NIV sides with the TR here.
    "The WH NU reading has strong documentation,both early and diverse." (p.797)

    In only one place (regarding textual variants) did TR agree with NU. And that was in 2 John 12.
