    The Written Word of God

    All through the Scriptures of truth the revelation of the Most High is called “the word of God.” It is doubtless called such because it gives the record of what God “said.” God spoke His ten-commandment law with His own voice; later He wrote it with His own finger on tables of stone. When He gave His messages to His people He spoke again, but this time through His servants the prophets; they were used as His mouthpiece to convey His solemn appeals and warnings to their hearts. These prophets in many instances committed the sacred messages to writing, and it is our privilege today to read “in the volume of the book” these divine words that “were written aforetime ... for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” Romans 15:4.BSPC 64.2

    The term “word of God” applies not merely to one part of the Holy Bible but to every part of it. We read:BSPC 65.1

    “The word of God includes the scriptures of the Old Testament as well as of the New. One is not complete without the other.”—Christ’s Object Lessons, 126.BSPC 65.2

    In perusing the sacred pages one is impressed with the fact that much is said about this Divine Word. We might study with profit the texts in the following classifications:BSPC 65.3
