What is true wisdom? While contemporary culture locates it in self-absorption, the first-century apostles revealed how wisdom is located supremely in Jesus Christ. Daniel Ebert explains how Old Testament wisdom motifs are not only appropriated in New Testament Christology but also far surpassed in God’s Son.
The Explorations in Biblical Theology series addresses the need for quality literature that attracts believing readers to good theology and builds them up in their faith. Each title in the series combines solid content with accessibility and readability—a valuable addition to the library of any college student, thoughtful lay reader, seminarian, or pastor.
"Two features of this book merit particular praise. . . . Ebert carefully demolishes the 'Jesus as Lady Sophia' Christology . . . and fulsomely displays how true wisdom is rightly connected to Jesus Christ. Moreover, the author writes well."
