026: Wisdom Christology throughout the Gospel of John

026: Wisdom Christology throughout the Gospel of John

July 26, 2018

Having already observed that the opening Prologue of the Gospel of John is a poem of Wisdom Christology, we turn in this episode to see if the rest of the book shows similar signs. In fact, there are over a dozen instances where Jesus within the Gospel of John is described in terms echoing Lady Wisdom. John's Gospel appears to be the best example in the New Testament of Wisdom Christology, and this episode details why that is in fact the case.

025: Wisdom Christology in the Prologue of John’s Gospel

025: Wisdom Christology in the Prologue of John’s Gospel

July 19, 2018

John's Gospel begins with an eighteen verse prologue where Jesus is depicted as the incarnation/embodiment of God's creative and powerful word. However, it is argued in this episode that the echoes of Lady Wisdom, rather than the personified 'word', would have been more clearly evident by the earliest readers of the Gospel of John. This episode notes the evidence for Wisdom Christology in John 1:1-18.

024: Wisdom Christology in the Book of Hebrews

024: Wisdom Christology in the Book of Hebrews

July 12, 2018

As we continue our journey through the New Testament, we arrive at the Book of Hebrews. Within the first three verses of this sermon, there appear to be four statements about Christ that have their origins in descriptions about Lady Wisdom, specifically from the book Wisdom of Solomon. For the author of Hebrews, the risen and exalted Son of God is the fullest embodiment of God's Wisdom so that things formerly said about this Wisdom figure can now be attributed to Jesus.

023: Wisdom Christology in the Gospel of Matthew

023: Wisdom Christology in the Gospel of Matthew

July 5, 2018

Within our ongoing study of Wisdom Christology within the New Testament, we move to examine the Gospel of Matthew. Within this ancient biography of the human Jesus, we observe five deliberate connections with Lady Wisdom. For the Gospel of Matthew, just like 1 Corinthians and Colossians before it, Jesus Christ is the fullest embodiment of God's personified Wisdom and is now the locus of God's wise teaching and interaction with his creation.
