Re: JOHN 1
What is the probability of an pre-Nicene interpretation best illustrated
with modern-day punctuation along the lines of ...
the word was: "God"
(or, "God" was the word)
This would mean that the Messiah was referential to God, just as a word
refers to a thing, but at the same time the word is different from the thing.
Any problems with that in terms of Greek?
