<x-flowed>Dear Friends,

  In Col 2:9 the word QEOTHS is used, and is usually translated "Deity" or
"Godhead". Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon defines it as "Godhead, the state
of being God". I believe this word only appears in this text in all the GNT.
Thayer comments that this word is different than QEIOTHS (Acts 17:29; Rom
1:20) which is usually translated as "Divinity". Does anyone know where in
other Greek literature contemporaneous or prior to the writing of Colossians
this word is used outside the GNT? Many thanks.
