JESUS – the Word

John ch 1 vs 1 Word

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  St John 1:1  In other words, in the beginning was Jesus and Jesus was with God, and Jesus was God.  Why is he called the Word?  All creation came via Jesus, the Word (John 1:3) God sent his Word and healed and rescued (Ps. 107:20).

Let’s look at how “word” is used in everyday language. 1. “Word” carries final authority and power as in, “When the boss says this is my final word,” we know not to question it.

2. “Word” can mean up to date, the latest thing as in, What is the latest word in fashion design?

3.”Word” can mean message as in, Have you received word of the gospel?

4.  “Word” can mean rock-solid standard of truth as in, That is what the word says.  Not only was Jesus the creator from the beginning, He is also, the Truth, the message, the healer, the rescuer, the final authority, and the latest thing even for today.  For that I am Thankful!

And note that in Rev. 19:13, when He defeats the beast, he is the mighty Victor and His Name is still “the Word of God.”


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
