    I am aware that the KJV uses the term Godhead,

    Excluding the KJV and the NKJV, which Modern Translation do you feel does the best job of describing the relationship between the Father, Son and Spirit, and why do you think that is so?

    The NIV seems most clear to me on the deity of Christ and the Holy Spirit. Hence it would also be clearest in teaching the Trinity.

    Can't say for sure, Ben. Every valid translation teaches that God The Father, God The Son, and God the Holy Spirit are all God, and the term "Holy Trinity" is an English shortcut for referring to all three collectively.

    Will a Greek reader here expound upon the meaning of "theios" of Colossians 2:9 ?

    A lack of functional literacy is your problem, not the NIV's.

    :rolleyes:
