In Hebrew Scripture, The Word was an agent of creation, the source of God’s message to his people through the prophets or another expression of God. *

In Greek philosophy, The Word was the principle of reason that governed the World, or the thought still in the mind. *


John 1: 1-5 (NIVIn the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
