What if the Bible only talks about Jesus as the Word (of God) and not of itself? What if the verse in 2.Timothy "All Scripture is God-breathed..." does not talk about the NT? How would that change my view of the Bible?
What if Jesus, the Word of God, was (as John writes) with the Father in the beginning, just like a word is inside of me before I speak it out, or an idea before I bring it into being?
In the beginning, it says, God created by speaking things into existence. What if Jesus is this life giving word, present with God in the beginning? That would make him one with God. But would he be God?
