The connection between the Word of God and His son, Jesus Christ”
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us : John 1:14.
There subsists an essential and vital connection between the eternal Word of God, who in the fullness of time was made flesh and dwelt among us and that written Word which testifies of Him. It is impossible for us to understand the nature of Scripture unless we view it in relation to the Son of God, the Messiah of Israel, for He is the center of the inspired record. It appears like reasoning in a circle when we say we receive the Bible because of Christ, and we receive Christ through the Bible. But the difficulty disappears when we view Christ in connection with the nation of Israel, and with Gods dealings towards them, as recorded in Scripture.
