(Gr. Logos), one of the titles of our Lord, found only in the writings of John ( John 1:1-14 ; 1 John 1:1 ; Revelation 19:13 ). As such, Christ is the revealer of God. His office is to make God known. "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him" ( John 1:18 ). This title designates the divine nature of Christ. As the Word, he "was in the beginning" and "became flesh." "The Word was with God " and "was God," and was the Creator of all things (Compare Ps.33: 6; 107:20 ; 119:89 ; 147:18 ; Isaiah 40:8 ).
