Quote of the Week: Matthew 4:4, notes 3 and 4

Matthew 4:4—“But He answered and said, It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out through the mouth of God.’”

Note 3 on bread: “this word indicates that the Lord Jesus took the word of God in the Scriptures as His bread and lived on it.”

Note 4 on word: “Gk. rhema, the instant word, differing from logos, the constant word. In this temptation all the words quoted by the Lord from Deuteronomy were logos, the constant word in the Scriptures. But when He quoted them, they became rhema, the instant word applied to His situation.”
