God's Word on God's Word – Part 5

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’ fifth installment, we consider a few more of these terms: “Moses and the Prophets”, “The Oracles of God”, and “’Covenant’ (Testament).”

10. Moses And The Prophets

The Old Testament is also called Moses and the prophets.

Abraham replied, “They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them” (Luke 16:29).

11. The Oracles Of God

Another term for the holy writings is the Greek word logion. This is a diminutive form of the Greek word logos and means “an oracle, divine response, or utterance.” It is used of the sacred writings in Romans 3:2and Acts 7:38. Paul wrote.

Much, in every way. for in the first place the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God (Romans 3:2).

In the Book of Acts we read.

He is the one who was in the congregation in the wilderness with the angel who spoke to him at Mount Sinai, and with our ancestors; and he received living oracles to give to us (Acts 7:38).

12.Covenant (Testament)

The word “covenant,” or “testament,” is also used for the sacred Scripture. The Greek word diatheke translated “testament,” means, “covenant, contract, or will.” It is used to distinguish between the Old and New Covenants— the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Apostle Paul wrote about reading the old covenant.

But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away (2 Corinthians. 3:14).
