The Word

Isaiah 61:10-62:3
Galatians 3:23-25;4:4-7
John 1:1-18
Psalm 147 

In the beginning was the Word.  God spoke the Word and the universe came to be.  God spoke the Word to save humans from their own mistakes.

The Word was given to Solomon and by it he gained great Wisdom.  Wisdom is also the Word.

Proverbs 3:18-20

She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.
By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place;
by his knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.

Proverbs 4:6-8

Do not forsake Wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.
Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.  Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.

Proverbs 8:22-31

The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works, before his deeds of old;
I was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began.
When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water;
before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills I was given birth,
before he made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world
I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
when he gave the sea its boundry so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
Then I was the craftsman at his side.  I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence,
rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.

Jesus is the Word and the Wisdom.
