Philosophical Wisdom v. God’s Wisdom

While philosophical wisdom is an abstraction, God’s wisdom in Christ is particular, historical, and counterintuitive to human reason. It involves the incarnation of God’s Son, his death on the cross, the triumph of the resurrection, the sending of his Spirit, and the promise of a glorious re-creation of the world. It is an invitation to people everywhere to know and enjoy the triune God of Scripture in all this particularity. This is an offense to the wisdom of human philosophy (11).

–Daniel Ebert, Wisdom Christology.
