God's Word on God's Word – Part 2

We find the Bible assuming itself to be the Word of God in the special terms that it uses to describe itself. In this blog series’ second installment, we consider three of these terms: the “Holy Scriptures”, the “Word of God”, and the “Word of the Lord”.

2. The Holy Scriptures

Twice we find the Bible called the “holy Scriptures.” Paul wrote to Timothy.

And how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15).

In this instance, Paul used the Greek word gramma to refer to the Scriptures.

Paul used the word gramma when he wrote to the church at Rome.

The gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures (Romans 1:2).

3. The Word of God

“The Word of God” is a title that is used in both Testaments to speak of the sacred writings. This expression emphasizes the nature of the Bible as the revelation of God in written form. In Matthew 15:6, this expression is used specifically of the Law of Moses. Jesus said.

So, for the sake of your tradition, you make void the word of God (Matthew 15:6).

In Mark 7:13, “the Word of God” is used of Moses’ command regarding honoring father and mother.

Thus making void the word of God through your tradition that you have handed on. And you do many things like this (Mark 7:13).

In John 10:35, Jesus used the phrase is used of the entire Old Testament.

If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came — and the Scripture cannot be broken — (John 10:35).

Finally, in Hebrews 4:12, the phrase “Word of God” is used of all Scripture. In this context it seems to refer to both testaments.

Indeed, the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).

4. The Word of the Lord

In various portions of the Bible, God’s Word is referred to as the “Word of the Lord.” Peter wrote.

For, “All flesh is like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever” (1 Peter 2:24,25).
