    Quotes provided by G.N. Gordon

    "And the things which are spoken through a prophet are not always to be taken as spoken by God. And even though through Moses God spoke many things, nevertheless Moses commanded other things by his own authority [the bill of divorce is given as an example]....And Paul also shows things in his letters, when he says concerning some things: 'The Lord says and not I,' and concerning others, 'These things moreover I say, not the Lord' (1 Cor. 7)" Quoted from "A High View of Scripture?" by Craig D. Allert Pg. 183

    “Understanding the Word of God not as proclamation and Scripture alone but as God’s revelation in proclamation and Scripture, we must understand it in its identity with God Himself. God’s Revelation is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The equation of God’s Word and God’s Son..." Church Dogmatics 1:1 By Karl Barth Pg. 137

    "God's Word is God Himself in His revelation.." "Church Dogmatics 1:1" By Karl Barth Pg. 295

    "The Bible itself is not the Word of God. Rather, it is supposed to be the witness to the living Word. For Christians, the living Word is Jesus, the Christ, and our knowledge of his love through the Holy Spirit...Please remember. The Bible is not the word. The Bible is a witness, an authoritative witness to the ways and works of the living God, who cannot be captured in propositions and arguments." "51% Christian" By Mark Stenberg. Pg. 113.

    "It is Christ Himself, not the Bible, who is the true word of God. The Bible, read in the right spirit and with the guidance of good teachers, will bring us to Him." "From a letter to Mrs. Johnson, November 8, 1952" By C.S. Lewis

    "by the way," the Word of God" is never used in the Bible to refer to the Bible. It couldn't since the Bible as a collection of 66 books hadn't been complied yet." "A Generous Orthodoxy" By Brian McLaren. Pg. 163

    "In its primary sense, the Word of God is none other than God...The Bible itself declares that, strictly speaking, the Word of God is none other than God the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity, the Word who was made flesh and dwelt among us...Given this biblical understanding of the Word of God, what makes the Bible the word of God is not that it is infallible, nor that it can serve as a source of authority for theological and religious debate. The Bible is the Word of God because in it Jesus, the Word incarnate, comes to us. Any who read the Bible and somehow do not find Jesus in it, have not encountered the Word of God...Final authority rests neither in the church nor in the Bible, but in the gospel, in the message of Jesus Christ, who is the incarnate Word of God." "The Story of Christianity Volume Two" By Justo Gonzalez about Martin Luther's view of the Bible. 29-31

    "So it is essentially wrong, in the final analysis, to ask if the Word of God is a book, or if it is found in a book or within the text of a book. The Bible itself and the Tradition of Faith in the Church respond to another question. That question is: "WHO is the Word of God?" The Word of God is a person: Jesus Christ! (John 1:1-5)." "Orthodox Christian Beliefs About the Bible" By Stanley Samuel Harakas. Pg. 3
