Thanks to Carl and Jonathan for such helpful
comments on Lk 2:2. Last night I was doing some
reading and ran across an F. F. Bruce comment
on this very topic:

        "Luke 2:2, which mentions Quirinius in
        connexion with an earlier census, is best
        translated: "This enrollment was before
        that made when Quirinius was governor
        of Syria." (cf. N. Turner, Grammatical
        Insights Into The Greek New Testament
        [ Edinburgh, 1966 ], pp. 23f).

This is found in Bruce's, New Testament History, p32
note 1.

My copy of Turner is at my office and unavailable to me
right now. Does anyone have any comments on the above?

All the best.
