The translation of the third clause of John 1:1

Taken from here: https://bloggingtheology.net/2016/11/25/25513/:

I am currently reading an academic work by two of America’s leading biblical scholars entitled: King and Messiah as Son of God, Divine, Human, and Angelic Messianic Figures in Biblical and Related Literature by Adela Yarbro Collins and John J. Collins – both professors of biblical criticism and interpretation at Yale University. It is a significant contribution to biblical studies and I recommend it to Muslims and Christians who are interested in the question of the divinity of Jesus in the Bible.

Here is a snapshot taken on my humble iPhone of pages 175 & 176 where the most likely translation of the third clause of John 1:1 is discussed. The traditional Christian translation is at best a possibility. But not the only one. The much maligned JWs may well have been right after all! (Click to enlarge).
