    What do we know about the Word? Im not wanting to know what theologians say about it necessarily. What does scripture say about it? Thank you.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Psalms 119 2 timothy 3:15-16

    Unless you are talking about Jesus and what John says about Him.

    I love the word, it brings us closer to God when spending time reading it to know Him better ratger than to accumulate knowledge.

    John 8:56
    Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw, and was glad.

    I thought so with the Capital.

    That He was there in the beginning, that He is and was with God. That He was made manifest on Earth and revealed to us the will of God.

    Although I did give a very short answer. I listened to a very lengthy lecture on it so I know it says more than that.

    First you have to define the Word. I would define it as those things God and Jesus are quoted as saying in the Bible.

    What are YESHUA's Parables all About? Matthew 13:13

    Psalms 78:1
    Give ear, O My people, to My Torah: incline your ears to The Words of My Mouth.

    2
    I will open My Mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

    3
    Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.


    Matthew 13:34
    All these things spake YESHUA unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake He not unto them:

    35
    That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open My Mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

    YESHUA Taught the Torah in Parables. Hosea 4:6

    I probably misunderstood Dreadnought but if I did it was an interesting concept.

    I assumed he meant that there was more to it. That it refers both to Jesus as He was on Earth but also to His role before... which is nothing new I know. I'm struggling to give a sense. But Jesus being the word, expression of God to His creation. Oh I can't put the completeness into words. Oh well. It doesn't translate from the idea sense into words.

    Personally, I believe John is referring to “the word of Yahweh”, the divine being who appeared to abraham, Isaac, Jacob & the prophets.

    When you look closer at the “Old Testament”, you see that there is a divine being, sometimes called the angel of Yahweh, Yahweh, God/Elohim, angel of God, the word of Yahweh, amongst other titles, who was appearing and speaking to people.

    This is who and what John is talking about. He is telling us that the Word of God was who became flesh and was who we know of as Jesus.

    Genesis 15:1
    Abraham SAW “the Word”. That is how Abraham knew who it was when he appeared later with the 2 angels.

    1 Samuel 3:21
    The “word of Yahweh” came to Elijah in the cave. Notice that the writer indicates that “the word of Yahweh” is a person

    1 Kings 19:9-11
    Here we have the Word of Yahweh, who is Yahweh, telling Elijah to go stand “before Yahweh”

    We actually see the trinity in the Old Testament. You just gotta pay close attention.

    The Word of Yahweh IS God, yet at times, we see he is also distinct from God

    I would think one and the same thing (logos=those times God and Jesus are quoted in the Bible).

    Keep in mind that as complicated as the Lord is, he is still a living being.
