As Jesus said: the Bible is NOT “the Word” | Mark 4:33


With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it…
Mark 4.33

Take note: it is within the parable that the “word” is found. It is not the parables themselves. It is a vehicle for “the word” even as it is not that word itself. The “word of God” is not as simplistic as one ancient text or book. It must be discerned, sought after, and found. The Word is within the Bible’s words–“behind them”, in a sense–it is not the words themselves. We can’t confuse this.
