022: Wisdom Christology in Colossians

022: Wisdom Christology in Colossians

June 28, 2018

In our continued study of Wisdom Christology throughout the New Testament, we arrive at the Epistle to the Colossians. Within this letter, the famous hymn about Christ in Col. 1:15-20 lavishly praises the accomplishments of Jesus in light of things formerly said about Lady Wisdom (without implying that Jesus consciously preexisted his birth). Furthermore, Colossians repeatedly depicts Christlike behavior as wise teaching and wisdom from God.

021: Wisdom Christology in 1 Corinthians

June 21, 2018

Having already examined Proverbs, Sirach, and Philo depicting God's Wisdom as a personified female figure embodied into human beings, we now turn to the New Testament. In this episode, we look at Paul's first letter to the Corinthians where Jesus is also depicted as the human embodiment of Lady Wisdom, specifically in light of his death, resurrection, and exaltation.

020: The Origins of Wisdom Christology in Sirach and Philo

020: The Origins of Wisdom Christology in Sirach and Philo

June 14, 2018

The theology exhibited in Proverbs wherein Lady Wisdom can be embodied into human beings was influential with other Jewish writers before the New Testament was written. This episode aims to lay that foundation by looking at the Book of Sirach and the writings of Philo. Both Sirach and Philo continue the argument from Proverbs by depicting God's Wisdom, personified as a female figure, as embodied into the human figures Simon the High Priest and Sarah, Abraham's wife.

019: The Origins of Wisdom Christology in the Book of Proverbs

019: The Origins of Wisdom Christology in the Book of Proverbs

June 7, 2018

Modern scholars have observed that many New Testament authors depict Jesus in light of Lady Wisdom (i.e., God's wise interaction with and instruction to his creation). However, most casual readers of the Bible seem to be unaware of what this 'Wisdom Christology' actually is. This episode seems to examine the origins of Wisdom Christology by studying the Book of Proverbs, where astute readers will note that Lady Wisdom is embodied/incarnate into human beings in chapter thirty-one.
