In a "Sleudian Frip" (oops, I mean "Freudian Slip") your B' phrase has QEON
(accusative) rather than QEOS (nominative). This seems like "how it ought to
be" (I am a little Greek), though it is actually QEOS, unless QEOS is to be
seen as an adjective.
So my questions are:
* is QEOS a noun in the nominative?
* if so, couldn't it just as easily read AND GOD WAS [BEING] THE WORD?
* is QEOS an adjective ("divine")?
* if so, how can I tell the difference?
