Jeff Downs just pointed me to an article written by Brian J. Wright and Tim Ricchuiti in the current issue of the Journal of Theological Studies entitled “From ‘God’ (ΘΕΟΣ) to ‘God’ (ΝΟΥΤΕ): A New Discussion and Proposal Regarding John 1:1C and the Sahidic Coptic Version of the New Testament.” If anyone out there has a copy of the article that they can shoot me I’d be greatly appreciative.
Wright’s 2007 ETS paper Jesus as Θεός: Scriptural Fact or Scribal Fantasy? has been extremely helpful in my studies over the years and I haven’t read something from Tim in a few years (if memory serves, he gave up blogging to tweet). Also, I haven’t read anything on this subject in quite a while. The last thing I can remember coming across was Robert Hommel’s “John 1:1c in the Sahidic Coptic Translation: What the Scholars Really Said.”
