The Word of the Most Ancient and the Ancient Churches
The Word has been in all time, 2895.
The Word precedes before the Church can be established, 3786:2.
The Word in the Most Ancient Church was from revelation, and was inscribed on their hearts, 2896.
Concerning the representatives and significatives with the men of the Most Ancient Church, 2896.
The Word with the most ancient people was inscribed on their hearts, and the Lord was the Word to them; the Word with the ancient people was collected by them, and was a representative of the Lord, and a significative of His kingdom; thus it was the internal sense, and afterwards they had a written Word, both historical and prophetical; the internal sense has perished to-day, thus wisdom; until it is not known that there is an internal sense, 3432:2.
The Ancient Church had a written Word, which perished, and it consisted of historical books which were called The Wars of Jehovah, and prophetical books which were called The Enunciations, quoted by Moses, 2897.
This Word was Divine, like the Word in the Prophets: shown, 2897.
The Ancient Church had inspired historical and prophetical books, cited by Moses, which were their Word, 2686.

Whence the representatives which are in the Word, and in the rites, arose, 2179:3.
Several things in the Word have arisen from representatives in the other life, and from correspondences, 2763.
That there was a Church in the land of Canaan from the most ancient times, and that there the Church continued, was because all things, there, were representative, and so the Word was written, in which each particular thing is representative and significative, 6516:2.
The representatives of places in the land of Canaan, which are in the Word, were from the Most Ancient Church, which was there; concerning which, 3686:2.
The representatives of the Jewish Church, and of the Word, arose from the significatives of the Most Ancient Church; and the doctrinals of the Ancient Church consisted in such things, 920:4.
Representatives and significatives arose from the Most Ancient Church, also among ancient profane writers, and it was then the only style, and was venerated among the Jews, 1756:2.
The Word through Moses and the Prophets was composed by means of representatives and significatives, and it could not be -written in another style, that it might have an internal sense, by which a communication of heaven with earth is made, 2899.
Prophetical Divine things were with others, which treat, in the internal sense, of the Lord; from the prophecy of Balaam, 2898.
Wise men of ancient time were delighted with the Word, that there were representatives and significatives therein, 2592:2, 2593.
The Word was written according to the doctrinal things of the ancients; the reason, 3419.
The Word was written as to the sense of the letter in the most natural form, otherwise it would not be comprehended, 8783;
and the erudite err who say they would receive the Word if it were otherwise written, and if heavenly things were plainly stated, 8783.
The Word is written by means of pure correspondences, and, therefore, it has force, 8615:3.
The Word was composed by means of pure correspondences, and, therefore, by means of it there is a conjunction of heaven with man, 10687.
The Word is dark to those who are of the spiritual Church, more so to the Jews, 8928.
There are four styles in the Word, 1139.
There are four different styles in the Word, 66.
The most ancient style was to describe things historically under types, 605.
The Word is according to appearances, 2242:3.
A thing is spoken of in the Word according to appearances, 589, 926, 1838.
In the Word a subject is spoken of according to appearances, lest they should be violated; an example from the Lord's anger, and other things; that the internal sense is otherwise; concerning which, 1874.
Why a subject is spoken of in the Word according to appearances, especially in the Old Testament, 2520:5.
Unless a matter were spoken of in the Word according to appearances and fallacies, it would not be received; and interior truths are not acknowledged, but they may be acknowledged by means of exterior truths which are in the literal sense, 3857.
The Word, or the doctrine of faith, is clothed by human appearances, 2719, 2720:8.
Apparent truths from the Word are adapted by the Lord, 1832.
