Word of God [Name Above All Names]

NAAN-Series-GFX_App-Wide.pngIn continuing our series, “Name Above All Names,” this past weekend at Eastbrook Church, I looked at one of Jesus’ most unique titles in all of Scripture: Word of God. The word logos in Greek has deep roots in Hellenistic philosophical thought, but the majority of scholars agree that the most likely background here is in Jewish thought on God speaking, the Word of God coming to the prophets, and the personification of wisdom in such texts as Proverbs 8. Still, the idea of the word becoming flesh is entirely new and one of the most beautiful portions of Scripture in the entire New Testament.

You can view the message video and sermon outline below. You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.
