[quote=The_Angelus]In the beginning of St. John’s Gospel, it says:
The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.
Jesus was the incarnation of the Word of God. He was made flesh - he was not originally so. He became incarnate, in Latin, “in body” (in=in, carna=body). Jesus embodied God’s Word: he lived it, he breathed it, he WAS God’s Word. He was not the teacher of the Word of God; he was the living Word.
This Word, in the person or body of Jesus CHrist, was an example to all, an archetype to be followed. What he said, what he did, was the Word of God; what he said and did are written in the Gospels and the Bible; therefore, the Scriptures are the recorded, the written, Word of God. Jesus was the Word of God incarnate; the Bible is the Word of God in print. What pertains to, prophesies about, and interprets the Word of God is also included (The Old Testament, the Prophetic Books, and the Epistles, respectively), but the Gospels are the core of the Bible. They are the foundations of the Word of God.
I agree that the Bible is the Word of God. Your missing my point. Is the Word of God completely and explicitly captured in the Bible? This you have not addressed.
