CASAS RAMIREZ, Juan Alberto. The contingency of the Word of God, necessary premise of biblical hermeneutics. Veritas [online]. 2012, n.27, pp. 137-164. ISSN 0718-9273. doi: 10.4067/S0718-92732012000200007.
«Word of God» doesn’t onlj refer to the Holj Scaptures; Jesús Christ is the Word of God par excellence against which all other expressions of God’s Word, including the Bible, are anahgous and dependent. This means that behind Christian biblical hermeneutics lies faith in Christ, so that what is preached on the nature of the Holj Scripture, the written Word of God, is directlj dependent on what is preached about Jesús Christ, the Word of God incarnate. This, besides influencing the ufe and faith of the beüever, has important epistemological, methodological and practical consequences for current biblical hermeneutics.
