The Word of God


The Word of God, as a phrase, denotes 3 different things:

  1. Utterances of God to a person.
    • Unmediated revelation via
    • Communication that is
    • Anchored in time.
  2. The Scriptures.
    • Mediated revelation via
    • Communication that is
    • Anchored within a time-frame.
  3. Our Lord Jesus Christ.
    • both Unmediated (he existed physically on earth) and Mediated (relative to us, who have not met his physical self) via
    • the Incarnation and
    • is both Timeless and In-Time.

Christ is the Perfect Word of God (complete and without error).

Scripture is imperfect, in the sense of incomplete. It offers a Mediated representation of Reality, but it is True.
