simka2 Posted January 12, 2012 Share Posted January 12, 2012 Does anyone know and can any tell me at what point the Bible went from being know as The Scriptures (or The Canon of Scriptures), to The Word of God? I ask because I recently watched a very patient Priest having a discussion with a Pentacostal woman. This discussion went something like this: Woman: Well, the Word say's..." Priest: "Ummm, we believe Jesus is The Word. Do you mean The Bible?" She did, but then she kept referring to The Bible as the word and every time she would say it, he would very gently insert "Jesus?" I then saw the Bible referred to as The Word of God on another thread, and it got me to wondering. When did the shift in title occur? (Genuine question. This combines two great loves for me, History and Religion.):D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
