In the famous prologue of the Gospel of John, Jesus Christ is revealed as the Word of God, the Divine Logos. Throughout the centuries the implications of this revelation have been expounded upon in the writings of the Church Fathers and countless theologians. Yet, most contemporary confessions neglect this active role of Jesus Christ as the Logos. This neglect of the intimate connection between the Creator and his creation has immense ramifications in our increasingly chaotic world.
We must return to this holistic vision of Jesus Christ as the Divine Logos for he is the very foundation and purpose of our existence. He holds the totality and unity of all creation within himself. By surveying the theological, historical, and philosophical sources, both pre-Christian and Christian, a more profound understanding of the One by whom we live and move and have our being will be gained.
