The Word Was God
In order to better understand this phrase, “The Word was God”, you should first become familiar with ( The Expressions Of God ).
As Christians, we accept the fact that God has always existed. Thus the Word (G3056) (logos = thought/will) of God always existed, and it can also be said that “The Word was God”. This phrase is just one of three frequently used “expressions” of God (The Father, Word, Holy Ghost). These expressions are abstract in that they describe various attributes of God, not three different personages. These choice words typically arise when the Bible addresses matters pertaining to the relationship that exist between God and man, and in particular that which existed between God and Christ.
These unique conceptual expressions of God where made manifest in many ways, flesh was just one way the word (logos) of God was manifested.
