2019-06-23 Wisdom and Jesus [Proverbs 8-9]

“Wisdom is personified as a woman in Proverbs. And Wisdom is an attribute of God. Jesus Christ is wisdom incarnate. Isaiah 11:2 says of the Messiah, “The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:30 tells us that He “became to us wisdom from God.” The emphasis of this message is to show that when Proverbs speaks of wisdom, Proverbs is speaking of Christ.”
