A Man Named Jesus Once Stood in Our Midst

who do you say that I am, reJesus, missional Christ

"The great English philosopher, John Stuart Mill, once commented that mankind can hardly be too often reminded that there was once a man named Socrates. That is correct, but it is even more important to remind mankind that a man named Jesus Christ once stood in their midst." (Adolf von Harnack, What is Christianity?)

We so easily forget the profound, mysterious, and transformative reality of Jesus Christ. Of Him, the authors of Holy Scripture cannot speak too highly...

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God . . . And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory... (John 1:1, 14)

The Bible on Wisdom

Where to Begin?
The Bible is so VAST in what it says about wisdom, it is hard to know where to start. But Proverbs 1:7 is surely a starting point contender!

If you want to study what the Bible has to say about wisdom, here are a few suggestions.

Read through the Book of Proverbs and underline every verse that mentions wisdom. Look at the context as well. Jot down your most significant impressions. Proverbs uses the word wisdom 55 times and word wise another 56 times.

Then read through Ecclesiastes. It uses the word wisdom 25 times and wise 23 times.
