JOHN 1:1 – WHO IS THE WORD?

Regardless of the literal meaning of the word, Jesus is also called the Word. One literal word as an expression does not come alone and does not speak in the name of God the Father or His own name. One literal word has no thoughts. Only one Person does that. Is Jesus really that Word?

  • “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” {John 1:14}

Jesus, as the Word, speaks personally:

  • “And the Word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them.” {Ezekiel 6:1, 2}
  • “Then came the Word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying, Send to all them of the captivity, saying, Thus saith the LORD.” {Jeremiah 29:30, 31}

Jesus, as the Word, also reveals the words of God the Father:

  • “Moreover the Word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel.” {Ezekiel 7:1, 2}

In Revelation, Jesus also has the name “Word”:

  • “And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His NAME is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.“ {Revelation 19:13, 14}

Ellen White:

  • “Who is Christ?—He is the only begotten Son of the living God. He is to the Father as a word that expresses the thought,—as a thought made audible. Christ is THE WORD of God.” {Ellen White, YI, June 28, 1894 par. 9}
