A common Christian term for special revelation is the “Word of God.” We as Christians refer to this primarily to the Bible. We can also see the concept of the “word of God” as a person, divine person, the word sent to dwell among us to lead the way, the truth, and the life. When we look at the Gospel of John, he declares the foundational truth that: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… And the Word became flesh and lived among us” (1:1,14). The main Word that is addressed to humanity is Jesus Christ, which is the incarnate Son of God, who is the climax of God’s redemptive acts.
Within the person and work, Jesus communicates in the most trustworthy way who God truly is and how we are to live in this light. Jesus is ultimately the Word of God revealed.
