G'day Melinda
Could you tell us which versions AT, MO and NTIV represent please? I am
guessing MO may be Moffat, but am scratching my head over the others.

While a few translations render the verse in this way, the overwhelming
majority of versions have rendered it "the word was God."

What reasons does McKenzie give for translating it 'the word was with the
God[= the Father], and the word was a divine being?'
