My Christian friend Graeme, a very scholarly non-scholar, wrote this to me in discussing a question of mine about The Word:
“…….. the Word is personal, not an abstraction.
Even in the first chapter of the bible the words “God said” occur ten times. This seems too much of a coincidence. The writer thought this to be important. It sounds like “God who is the Word said…”
So I agree there is a nexus between God-Word-Speech-Communication-Reasoning.”
I created the following bit of Word Art in response from a painting by Eastman Johnson of New York.
