But the Word of God is in an entirely different category. It is a very old book, one of the oldest books in the world. And the amazing thing is that it is as alive today as it ever has been. “[Moses] received the living oracles,” and this Word is as alive now as it was in the days of Moses. A part of this living quality that belongs to it is that it is always contemporary, it is always up-to-date.
