Logos: The Explanation

While working on some document here, I had come to the problem of how to correctly translate the “logos” of John into English. I know your Bible says “The Word.” Good enough, but not accurate. Logos is not just the word, as you can see from the fact that “logic” doesn’t refer to the word, and yet logic is the main derivative sense of logos.

Then out of the æther was shouted the Word: Explanation.
