I was taught a long time ago, that there was a difference between the Greek words Logos and Rhema, both translate ‘word‘. I don’t know if that is a regular Christian teaching or if it had to do because at the time our pastor was being influenced by the ‘New Apostolic Reformation (NAR)’ teachers. But we were taught that:
- Rhema meant a “fresh spoken/living” word, & Logos meant “written” word.
Many years later to my surprise, I found while studying the Word of God, that in the Greek New Testament the word rhema (G4487) & the word logos (G3056) , are used interchangeably/ synonymously and there is no difference between logos and rhema at all, BOTH of them mean SPOKEN word! Also found that most Greek scholars, state that the apostles or New Testament writers (under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit) made no such distinction between these two terms in their writings.
