By a huge margin, the most popular interpretation of John 1:1 asserts that the Greek word logos is not a non-personified quality of God the "Father over all", but instead another eternal person and yet still God. This other person is God’s only begotten son, who today is known by the name of Jesus Christ.

In the below verse, the centurion asks Jesus to "speak logos" only. Jesus praises the centurions understanding saying he has faith beyond anyone he has met in Israel.

Mat 8:8 KJV

The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak logos (Strongs G3056) only, and my servant shall be healed.

How does God’s logos speak logos?

This question is unique. If the claim is that the Logos of God is personified other than that which can be read in Prov. 8, than this question must be addressed. We read that the logos is never a person unless we make an exception in John 1. This question is also not about pronouns (which, by the way, conclude nothing as they are ambiguous). This question is about the Greek word logos within the context of the premised verse and every other verse of the New Testament.
