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.
