“Oracles” is one of those words only used a few times in the Brit Hadasha; 4 times to be exact. Similar in that regard to the word “apostasia” which is only used twice. In both cases we find the context is unmistakable and simple to draw out. Here we have the Strong’s definition…

>>>>ORACLES— G3051 logion log'-ee-on; an utterance (of YHWH): - oracle<<<<

His Words. Kinda like… Deu 8:3 “…man does not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes from the mouth of יהוה” (Also repeated in Mat_4:4; Luk_4:4)

But these “oracles” are even more specific and defined…The Words spoken by YHWH AT SINAI, received by our fathers to GIVE TO US

Act 7:38 “THIS IS HE who was in the assembly in the wilderness with the Messenger who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers, who received the living Words (ORACLES-logion) TO GIVE TO US!

(remember he was replying to FALSE WITNESSES…Act 6:13 And they set up false witnesses who said, “This man does not cease to speak blasphemous words against this set-apart place and the Torah”)

The very same oracles entrusted to Yehuda ...

Rom 3:1-2 What then is the advantage of the Yehudite, or what is the value of the circumcision? Much in every way! Because firstly indeed, that THEY WERE ENTRUSTED with the Words (ORACLES-logion) of Elohim.

This next (and final) use of this word tells us these oracles from Sinai are to be the basis, the primary foundation for our understanding; the solid food…

Heb 5:12-14 For indeed, although by this time you ought to be teachers, YOU NEED SOMEONE TO TEACH you again the first elements of the Words (ORACLES-logion) of Elohim. And you have become such as need milk and not solid food. For everyone partaking of milk is inexperienced in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food is for the mature whose senses have been trained by practice to discern both good and evil.

The last verse was addressed to: Heb 5:11 concerning whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become DULL OF HEARING.

Interesting word, eh? Are you hearing them?
