Isaiah 40,6-8 (ESV)
“A voice says, “Cry!”
And I said, “What shall I cry?”
All flesh is grass,
and all its beauty is like the flower of the field.
7The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the LORD blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
8The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.”
Why are people like grass?
The word of God is all the book of our Bible. How and why are words of a certain book eternal?
Read the Bible. The Bible explains about the word of God.
Read John 1, for instance. Here is much to dive into, especially in the context of the rest of the Bible. The chapter makes a connection between the creation and God the Father and the gospel and Jesus, the son of God.
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” (John 1,14)
What is the meaning of this phrase? How could the Word or God’s word become flesh?
Jesus walked into a synagogue, and he stood up and read from the book of Isaiah:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Is 61,1-2)
Then Jesus said:
“Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”Luk 4,21
