would have used their own translation (like Pagels), it completely
escaped me that those Johannine passages were included in that
anthology . . . so thanks for reminding me!
I have wanted to find time to sit down and work out a comparison ever
since you mentioned it, but thus far, I've only had a chance to copy
the Greek text to a file (thinking I might get to print it out so I
could look over it with the other material at lunch breaks). I knew
I didn't want to carry both my Interlinear Bible AND "The Gnostic
Bible" to work . . . not so much because of my co-workers as because
of the sheer weight of everything else I carry around with me
already; those hefty volumes would really be a burden. Anyway, I'm a
little closer to where I can have it all in front of me during a
moment of free time, but it will be a while before I get back to you
regarding any conclusions.
I even took Hoeller's book with me one night, but I really need to go
back and start the whole thing anew, rather than trying to pick up
where I previously left off months ago.

At least we can't accuse him of ego inflation. :-)
