I recently read a work of fiction entitled Angelology. It was a New York Times Bestseller. There was one paragraph in the book that read, "Seraphina said. 'John said that in the Beginnning there was the Word and the Word was with God. What he did not say is that in order to be meaningful the Word requires interpretation. That is our role.'" (p. 176)
Too often error finds its way past our 'truth sensors' and into our heart because we, as Believers, do not think theologically. As opposed to what the above mentioned work of fiction communicates, the Word does NOT need interpretation....not the WORD spoken of in the first chapter of John's Gospel. The Word in John 1 is none other than the person of Christ. Any interpretation that occurs in relationship to Jesus as the Word is His interpreting for US who His Father is. John relates in verse 14 of that chapter: "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth." Jesus revealed God's glory to us.
It is Jesus who exegetes God for us. Further along in the text it reads, "No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained (exegeted) Him." (John 1:18) The Word explains the Father to us and our responsibility is to hear and to obey...not interpret...that job has already been done for us by Someone who has firsthand knowledge!
