    In keeping with the season, I thought this thread might be instructive.

    By making a statement, it is intended to encourage others to voice their opinions and scholarly work on the matter, too.

    Statement: The Word of God (His actual thoughts expressed in active voice) and Jesus are the same.

    The opening lines of John's Gospel declares, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning."

    John establishes how Mary, the mother of Jesus, conceived yet still a virgin, "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."

    In Genesis God spoke and creation existed. John clearly states in this same passage that, "Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made." And again, "He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him."

    Very good thread here, sir. The bible is about Jesus. He came in the volume of the book, to do Thy will, O, Father.

    Also, search the scriptures. For in them you think you have eternal life. And these are they which testify of me. It is impossible to glean anything other than Jesus from the bible, if one only digs deep enough to find Him there. The bible DECLARES Jesus Christ. It is His autobiography, written by the Spirit, through man's writtings.

    Jesus Christ is the Word of God

    Revelation 19:11-16

    "I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS."

    Actuall though...

    the Logos was/is God the Son, who always has existed with God the father and HS, and has always been God...

    He became incarnated as jesus...

    Jesus, from viewpoint of his humanity, had a beginning, while the Logos, God the Son aspect of Him did not!

    Now jesus is fully both God and man, forever united into one being/body!
