WORD AS SEED
As the Word is seed (Luke 8:11) which is revealed and communicated, that is, it is conceived and born in us, so also it is always the Holy Spirit by which it is conceived and born and lives in us. The Word is the divine object of communication and the Spirit is the divine subject of appropriation.
The seed assumes the soil; it is correlative with it. They are mutually related and adapted to one another, and neither has function or existence apart from the other. That which is born of them is a joint product of seed and soil. So when our Lord entered into our nature through the womb of Mary, the seed was of God, but the soil or womb was of humankind. And so Jesus who was born was equally Son of Man and Son of God. God comes into the world through the process of nature and of man to bring divine life and light through the Holy Spirit.
“Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.” Jesus
