  1. With respect, when the term the “Logos of God” is used in the NT it does not refer to the written Word of God.  You can test this, for example, in Acts 13 where Paul has preached to the Jewish Audience at Pisidian Antioch.  Following Paul’s speech, there are a number of references that refer to the “Word of God” and the “Word of The Lords”, where the context is what Paul has spoken, not written. The view that the Logos of God refers to a written word is completely wrong.  The background culture of the NT is oral, not textual. In oral persuasion, where Paul was very skilled, a speech had three “ingredients”: ethos, logos and pathos, where the logos was the content or argument of what was spoken, not written.
