From page one of the Bible, the need for wisdom is central to the story of humans interacting with God. The story of Adam and Eve tells of the conflict between choosing God’s wisdom or human wisdom. The book of Proverbs poetically describes Wisdom as an aspect or even companion of God that informed creation and is available for daily life.
But in Colossians, Paul has a new take on wisdom. He relates the search for wisdom to coming to know Jesus.
We have great news regarding our course Paul and His Letter to the Colossians which we will give you in a few days.
