Paul defined "scripture" within certain imitations in 2 Timothy 3:16 as being "inspired" by the Spirit but he Word of God is summed up in John 1 as - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. At our weekly mens' Bible study most agreed that the Word of God and Scripture are the same. If that were the case why did Paul make a distinction or redefine scripture apart from the Word? What do you think?

God, the Living Word, supersedes scripture in that it is not limited by or
to scripture; hence the "distinction"
