Who's Wisdom

I'm still of the opinion it's the Spirit, not the Son...

here's another reason why:

Proverbs 8:1-3  Does not wisdom cry out, And understanding lift up her voice?  2 She takes her stand on the top of the high hill, Beside the way, where the paths meet.  3 She cries out by the gates, at the entry of the city, At the entrance of the doors:

Isaiah 42:1-2  "Behold! My Servant whom I uphold, My Elect One in whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.  2 He will not cry out, nor raise His voice, Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.

they seem to have quite different ways of operating no?

Proverbs 1:23?

Rich

yea... so He's telling His son to 'seek Wisdom'

Rich Owen said...

I'm lost... explain how you do that?

prov 2?
isn't wisdom feminine in proverbs?
while the son is masculine?

Sounds promising, but tell us more.

yemsee said...

more?
err.. He's filled with Wisdom ?
i.e. the Spirit is all the 'attributes' of God... or He empowers or 'attributes' God Himself

So the Father asks the Son to find Wisdom, which He is filled with, and which He sent - to fill the Son with

or something...

Like Luke 2:52.. the Son growing in Wisdom

But if you hold Proverbs 8 and Isaiah 42 next to each other as you did, then why would the Son and the Spirit act differently? Doesn't the Spirit act primarily (exclusively?) through the Son?
