The 'Word of God' is primarily, before anything else, a PERSON - Jesus, the incarnate Word (John 1:1).

The Bible, God's written Word in Scripture, points us to Jesus is focussed on him. Jesus says the Old Testament Scripture is written concerning him (Luke 24) and the explicit purpose of the New Testament is 'These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing, you may have life in his name.' So the primary purpose of the bible, among all its other purposes, is to point us to the Incarnate Word, the person, Jesus. In that way it functions as God's instruction manual and love letter.
