“The word of God
Is the good news
That was announced
τὸ δὲ ῥῆμα Κυρίου μένει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. τοῦτο δέ ἐστιν τὸ ῥῆμα τὸ εὐαγγελισθὲν εἰς ὑμᾶς.
This author then said “The word of God (τὸ δὲ ῥῆμα Κυρίου) endures forever (μένει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα). The word is (τοῦτο δέ ἐστιν τὸ ῥῆμα) the good news that was announced (τὸ εὐαγγελισθὲν) to you (εἰς ὑμᾶς).” This author finished his citation from Isaiah, chapter 40:8. While everything else like the grass and the flowers fade, the word of God endures forever. Then he was explicit by saying that the word of God was the good news that was announced to them. They had been evangelized with the word of God. The word of God heard by Isaiah had become the word of God from and about Jesus Christ. Do you recognize the good news that you have received about Jesus Christ?
