Word of God, The

The phrase "Word of God" is used of both the Bible and the person of Jesus.

  • The Word of God is inspired: "All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;" (2 Tim. 3:16).
  • The Word of God is truth: "all thy commandments are truth." (Psalm 119:151).
  • Jesus makes free: " . . . If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32).
  • The Word of God produces faith: "So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ." (Rom. 10:17, NASB).
  • The Word of God judges: "For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." (Heb. 4:12).

Jesus is the Word of God made flesh (John 1:1, 14)
