This Term Is Not Defined : Although there is no explanation given in Scripture as to why Jesus is called the Word of God there have been several suggested reasons. It May Refer To Wisdom Personified

So What is the Word? Islam has the Answer!
Parts Taken from here: https://www.islamreligion.com/articles/229/descriptive-titles-of-jesus-in-quran-part-2/

“…O Mary!  Behold, God gives you good news of a word from Him, who shall become known as the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary…” (Quran 3:45)

“…The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of God, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary…” (Quran 4:171)

“…God gives you good news of (a son whose name is) John, (who comes) to confirm a word from God…” (Quran 3:39)

Islam provides a clear explanation of how Jesus was a “Word” from God.  But first the process of human procreation must be understood.  The Might of God is behind everything.  Whenever God decides to do something, like giving life or causing death, He says the word “Be” and it happens,

“It is He who gives life and causes death; and when He decrees a matter, He but says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.” (Quran 40:68)

The first step in human procreation is the biological union between male and female reproductive cells in addition to the will of  God. Since Jesus was born without a father, he was not conceived by the male sperm cells.  Instead his creation, similar to Adam, is solely attributed to the Word of God, ‘Be.’ God says:

“Indeed the likeness of Jesus to God as the likeness of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him, ‘Be,’ and he was.” (Quran 3:59)
