Can you clarify this question?

what is the "word of god"? is it jesus? is it the bible? is it something else...?

i have heard jesus called "the word", but i have also heard the bible referred to as "god's word." are they the same thing? are they different? should one not be called the "word of god?"

these, and other subsequent questions are what i am hitting at...

After thinking about this a while, I really don't have an answer. Sad, huh?

jON said...

not really. just something i was wondering about. so often i hear the bible spoken of as "god's word" and i'm not sure how much evidence of that there is. as well as the fact that it is a part of jesus' inner being. so does that make jesus the bible?

i also forgot to mention that "the word of the lord" is something that prophets spoke into real-time situations.

but don't feel bad. if it doesn't interest you, or you don't have an answer, that's okay. i don't have a lot of answers myself.

Hmm... a question that has come up with my friends lately. Right now, I would say it is the words God spoke/speaks to people - some of which were recorded in the Bible...
