121: The Origins of the Word Becoming Flesh (John 1:14)

May 21, 2020

John 1:14 indicates that the Word--God's personified speech--becomes flesh as the human being Jesus. This episode shows how the embodiment of God's personified attributes was depicted in previous portrayals of Lady Wisdom, specifically in Proverbs, Sirach, and Philo. The Prologue, which has been deeply influenced by Jewish wisdom speculation, must be read in light of this important evidence.
