A word; reason; speech.
The divine Word; Christ.
(Gk) "Word," manifested deity, the living expression of divine thought.
(ha LAH-gahs) n. “The Word.” A Greek term meaning both "word" and "reason," used by Greek philosophers to denote the rational principle that creates and informs the universe. Amplified by Philo Judaeus of Alexandria, Egypt, to represent the mediator between God and his material creation, as Wisdom had been in Proverbs 8:22-31, the term found its most famous expression in the prologue to the Fourth Gospel to denote the pre-existent Reality of Yeshua Natseret - "the Word became flesh and dwelt among us" (John 1:14). The Logos represents (in John's gospel, especially) personal wisdom and power in union with Almighty God, His minister in creation and in the government of the universe; the cause of all life (both physical and ethical), and for the attainment of man's salvation became born into the Olam HaZeh as the person of Jesus the Messiah, the second person in the Godhead.
(Greek, "word," "speech," "reason.") See Word.
The deity manifested through every nation and people. The outward expression, or the effect of the cause which is ever concealed. Thus, speech is the  Logos of thought, hence it is aptly translated by the "verbum" and the "word" in its metaphysical sense. (See John 1:1-3.)
logos This word really has no English equivalent, but comes close to the combination of a principle of: reason, account, ratio, order, balance
The logical use of language in effective arguments. See ethos and pathos.
often translated as "word", it's true meaning is much more multifunctional (a better translation would be "reason"). The Logos is the light that gives Gnosis via communication. It is the Christ (not to be confused with Jesus). First there was a thought, then the word. We pass on knowledge in this world through words. It is something that gives us guidance by "seeing" or a certain amount of comprehension.
Word, reason, universal principle of life.
The underlying principle which patterns the universe, giving it order, beauty and complexity in a multiplicity of forms is called in the West, logos. The understanding of the Christian tradition is that this creative and formative Word is alive and personal and has entered human history in the person of Jesus Christ.
a term used by Heraclitus (4th century B.C.) to speak about the rational law or principle which governs the universe. It was developed in Stoicism and Platonism eventually finding its way into Christianity where it is used at the beginning of the Gospel of John and enabled Christian apologists to accommodate their religion to Greek philosophy (Hexham, 1994).

word, reason, plan; divine reason as the source of order in the world
The Greek for "word." Translated as the "Word" in John 1:1. In that passage it means the thought, plan, activity, utterance, or expression of God. That is, it can refer to the thought in the mind of God or to the thought of God expressed, particularly as expressed in flesh through Jesus Christ, the Son of God. In ancient Greek philosophy it meant reason as the controlling principle of the universe. Neo-Platonic philosophy, particularly that of the Greco-Jewish philosopher Philo of Alexandria, personified the Word and described it as a secondary deity created by God or emanating from God in time. Some of the Greek apologists adopted this view and equated the Logos with the Son. Trinitarianism incorporated this belief, equating the Logos with "God the Son" but eventually holding that the Logos was co-equal and co-eternal with God the Father. John's writings were particularly designed to refute these false concepts about the Logos and the Son.
Jesus Christ is the Logos, the Word spoken by the Father. In speaking this Word, the unknowable God reveals Himself. He reveals Himself both in His human incarnation and throughout all of creation, for everything that has come into being has done so through the mediation of the Word (cf John 1:1-5). And Christ is all in all.
The principle of logic and structure, traditionally associated with spirit, the father world and the God-image. For moderns it is associated with patriarchy. (See also animus and Eros.)
God. The Cosmic Being who ensouls a planet (Planetary Logos), a solar system (Solar Logos), a galaxy (Galactic Logos) and so on to infinity.
This word is the ancient Greek term for "word" which beginning with Heraclitus (F. 500 B.C.E.) took on the broader, philosophical meaning, which is at bottom that which gives unity to thought, and by extension, our account of reality. In this sense, "logos" is synonomous with the word "reason" and by Aristotle's reckoning, our capacity (faculty of mind) to grasp and follow reason is the defining character of the human species. Also understood to indicate scientific definition, and representational discourse in general.
following Aristotle, persuasion that uses an appeal to logical arguments that requires one to draw one's own conclusion based upon the argument presented
Greek for "word," a term that came to be applied particularly to Jesus Christ as the divine Word made flesh.
In Christian theology, this Greek word meaning "word" or "reason" is used for the "Word of God."
