A EN ARCH HN hO LOGOS
B KAI hO LOGOS HN PROS TON QEON
B' KAI QEON HN hO LOGOS
A' hOUTOS HN EN ARCH
PROS TON QEON
I don't know if it is one or the other [adj. or nom.], and I suspect that it
is in fact a pred. nom. because that seems to make much more chiastic sense.
* does the fact that LOGOS has the article indicate authoritatively that it
is the subject?
* would the article preclude LOGOS from being an adjective?
* is there an adjectival form of LOGOS? ("logical")?
* is there an adjectival form of QEOS? ("divine")
* I notice that hOUTOS follows this verse. It seems to make a strong case
for LOGOS being the subject in B'
* is it common to put the predicate nominative forward in the sentence?
* if this reads "...and God was [being] the Word" - with QEOS as the subject
and hO LOGOS as the predicate noun, would the imperfect HN be saying:
- the LOGOS is "of the genre" QEOS, or
- the "identity" of the LOGOS was QEOS, or
- can't say?
