    I don’t know what the cut-off time is for posting questions, but I’ll post one in case I’m still in time.

    Are our translators always right in their choice of when to capitalize “Word” for the Greek word logos? Obviously, in John 1 it’s talking about Jesus, but are there other times that logos is referring to Him and they haven’t capitalized “word”? Some times I think that this verse in Heb. 4:12 is referring to Jesus, and therefore “Word” should be capitalized to be consistent. But maybe it’s not referring to Jesus. If it isn’t referring to Him, what exactly would you say logos or “the word” is referring to in this verse?
