John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Your post assumes too much as does your link.

 

First, why believe "they used words of each other instead of receiving from God"?  There is no reason not to think the prophets did not receive it from God.  Your claim sets up a false dichotomy.   Also note certain language motifs are common through out the Bible.

 

Second, there is no logical or theological reason why one prophet could not used the message\words of another.

 Compare Acts 2:21 (written by Luke and spoken by Peter) with Romans 10:13 (written by Paul).

 

 Why can't God give the same message to more than 1 person to speak and/or record?
