Very often in our everyday life we, consciously or unconsciously, use ideas and expressions which are biblical, but do we know the meaning and significance of these invaluable words? Aren’t we using them inappropriately, out of place? The show “Reflections” touches upon these issues.
This expression used in everyday life is taken from the Gospel of John. Unlike the other three Gospels, this Gospel does not start with the story of Jesus Christ's earthly life. The reader is immediately introduced to the Word (in Greek, Logos), which is not identified with Jesus until the end of the mentioned Gospel's prologue, verse 1:18. It is extremely important to consider the concept of the Word as a key to perceive the Gospel of John. The concept of the Word was widely used in Greek literature. The Stoics used it to describe the principles of Divine intellect, which directed the natural development of the creation process.
