Here is something to consider:

When we look at something we don't see the object itself, only the light reflecting from the object. If we take a picture of the object, the film captures not the object but the light from the object and converts the light reflection into a new image. But, when we look at the picture, we don't see the picture itself or the original object. We see the light reflecting from the picture!

God's word is given to His prophets, ministers and teachers who then reflect that light to us. We see not the person speaking or writing but the reflection of His light. These words are recorded for our benefit. When we read scripture, the word is again reflected to us as God's inspiration shines through the written word.
