Abstract: Current exegesis of the Epistle to the Hebrews is well-nigh unanimous in holding that the logos ofHeb 4,12 is the word of God in Scripture, not the Word of God as God, that is, as presented, for example, in the prologue of the Fourth Gospel. The present note is written from the contrary, minority point of view. The first half of the note will present a new argument which points to the logos of 4,12 as Logos, that is, as being the same as the Logos of the prologue of the Fourth Gospel; this new argument is based on a close reading of3,7 - 4,11. The second part of the note will rehearse the arguments previously given for this understanding of the Logos and will situate them in the new context provided by the argumentation in the first part of the note.
