I have never before heard this translation of John 1:1.
“In the ruling council was a spokesman, and the spokesman was among the gods and the spokesman was himself a God.”
John Hall quotes the translation of Hugh Nibley.
Rather than me typing out much of the lecture, check Mark’s blog over here.
I am wondering, “What has Hugh Nibley and others done with Jesus?”
Oh, and someone just asked if John believed in the Q text? He rejects this notion, saying it is entirely made up. I am encouraged by this.
