The Bible is clear. John 1:1-4 (NIV2011)
1 In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God. On the other hand the Bible is the word of God. Jesus is not the Bible, but the Bible is derived from Jesus, the Word/Logos, the Second Person of the Trinity. The problem has been that many Evangelicals have confused the two which makes Jesus dependent on the Bible, which is not true.
Another Biblical view on this question is found at the beginning of Hebrews Hebrews 1:1-4 (NIV2011)
1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
2 but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed Heir of all things, and through Whom also He made the universe.
4 In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
The unnamed gospel writer is saying that God spoke to the Hebrews (our ancestors) through God’s words, the Hebrew Covenant,) but now God has spoken by God’s Word (God’s Son.) The difference is between speaking indirectly and speaking directly to us. Also God’s words are good, because they are from God, but not perfect because they are not God. God’s Word is perfect because He is God, the Second Person of the Trinity.
The writer was talking to ethnic Jews who were Christians, but were tired being persecuted by the pagan authorities and being rejected by their unconverted relatives. They were tempted to go back to Judaism which was persecuted and was based on the word of God. Hebrews told them that they could not go back without being condemned by God and that God’s salvation through Jesus Christ was well worth the pain and suffering of persecution in this world.
This does not mean that no Jews are saved, but that Christians who reject Christ for Legalism are saved. The biggest danger of accepting the Bible as the Word of God is that it put the Old Covenant on the same footing as the New Covenant, which leads to Legalism.
@Christy, this is a ad hominem argument that is both a fallacy and ungracious. Sadly @MarkD and @Mervin_Bitikofer seem to have fallen for it.
