Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";go forward,"; ";advance,"; as in Mark 1:19, is seen in BGU IV. 1209.10 (B.C. 23) ἐπεὶ οὖν σὺν θεοῖς οὐδὲν μὲν προβέβη (κεν), PSI I. 50.15 (iv/v A.D.) καὶ προβῇ τὸ ἔργον τῆς μικρᾶς ξενίας τῆς περὶ τὴν ληνόν.

For the metaph. use of ";advance"; in years, cf. P Par 15.62 (B.C. 120) ἔτι δὲ καὶ προβεβηκότος ἤδη τοῖς ἔτεσι, and similarly P Tor I. 1vii. 29 (B.C. 116) : cf. Luke 1:7; Luke 1:18; Luke 2:36, where however ἐν is added before the datives.
