Manner And Mode

“Numinous”, comes from the Latin, “numen”, and likely from the Greek, “pneuma”, and each stands to represent God’s intent and presence/power/spirit on Earth.

Very relatable are Cicero’s remarks on “Divine Mind” (numen) and John’s Gospel’s opening remarks being a completely Greek Theology of Jesus. The “Word” is Cicero’s numen of Divine will and intent, and the “Way” isn’t a gatekeeper from Galilee, but that a man like no other has embodied God’s intent for humanity, how we all ought to be. Jesus is the “Way” (Manner, Strong’s 3598, ὁδός, οῦ, ἡ Hodos) we all “ought to be” (Truth, Strong’s 225, ἀλήθεια, ας, ἡ Alétheia), and the life (Mode, Strong’s 2222, ζωὴ Zoe) as God intended for us all, all along (Mind, Strong’s 3056, λόγος, ου, ὁ Logos).
