1) Look at BDF, paragraph 273, for both constructions
with regard to grammar. Especially look at the
footnote with the remarks of ECColwell).
2) In John 9:28 P75 has "SU MAQHTHS EI EKEINOU".
But P66 only has "SU EI EKEINOU".
3) In Mat 27:11; Mark 15:2, Luke 23:3; 23:37 and
Joh 18:33 it is "SU EI hO BASILEUS TWN IOUDAIWN"
(question). (Compare also Mark 3:11; Luke 4:41;
Joh 3:10; 6:69.) Perhaps P66, Aleph etc. brought their
text of Joh 1:49 into line with the similar
constructions of the synoptics.
