When we read the Scriptures in our liturgies, we always conclude by proclaiming what we've read as "The Word of the Lord."

It's never, "a word of the Lord," but always, "The Word of the Lord."

With God there is only one utterance: perfect, complete, and eternal.

It is all one thing: the Word God spoke to bring the creation into being, the promises to Noah, Abraham, and David, the Word in the mouth of the prophets, and the Word Who becomes flesh in the human life of Jesus of Nazareth.
