A Prayer
of Jesus
I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise
and understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will

The Word

(A Perspective by Tommy Reyes)

The words of Jesus came purely from the Father and God is His Father, therefore the words of Jesus are the words of God. There is no need for Him to have a divine inspiration from God because Jesus Christ himself is a divine person. What He heard from the Father, He shared to His disciples. He knew the mind of God.
He is the only word of God, image of God and the true and final mouthpiece of God. Time and again, He claimed that His words are not His but of His Father.
Many books and epistles are manmade, claiming to be sacred, holy and infallible. This could not be possible for the writers of those books were imperfect human beings.
Divine inspiration does not  necessarily preclude perfection in the part of the writers nor the things that were written. The books may bring inspiration, encouragement and sometimes good counsel however, they should not be glorified and worst be deified calling them to be part of the word of God.
There must be only one Word of God and none other than the eternal Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The word of God is not the mass printed, most circulated, and best selling book in the world.
