Presence and Work of the Word in the Revelation of the Old Testament and in the Cosmic Temple of Creation
God created the world through His Word. Through his act of creation, the Logos ingrains His rationality into the world and initiates a dialogue with creation. The main agent of this dialogue is the man, the crown and the reason of creation. In the Old Testament, this dialogue is increasingly taking shape, preparing the world for the incarnation of the Word. The Word is present in the acts, words and images of the Old Testament Revelation. But the presence and work of the Logos in the world makes creation a cosmic temple called to become a Church, through His incarnation, and an environment of unity and deification of creation.
