If I understand your question it seems that the versions listed are
understood to imply similar meaning. There is probably a difference
between "the word was divine" and "the word was a divine being. The later
has expressed an "indefinite" predicate nomnitive while the former a
"qualitative" description. Wallace gives a helpful treatment of this
problem in discussing Colwell's Construction on 266-269 of his EXEGETICAL
SYNTAX (cf. Robertson, 767).
