Revelation: a central and dynamic concept in both OT and NT.
1) It was by God's ‘word’ that the heaven and earth were made (Gen. 1:3, 6, 9).
2) The Ten Commandments are his words (Exod. 20:1). They are often referred to as the ‘Ten Words’. Prophets [[➝ prophets]] speak the Lord's word (Jer. 1:2), which is the revelation of his will and purpose.
3) In the NT Jesus preaches the word (Mark 2:2).
4) In the gospel of John Jesus is identified with God's word—his revelation or his meaning (John 1:1, 14). The word in this sense is not identified with the written words of any scripture.
5) In Paul and Acts (e.g. 6:2), the word means the Christian proclamation.
6) Concluding a public reading of Scripture with the affirmation ‘This is the word of the Lord’ may be extremely inappropriate.
