Proverbs 8

  1. What is said of wisdom in verses 22-31 concerning: (a) its existence from the beginning; (b) its part in creation; (c) its communion with God; (d) its interest in man? Consider how in all these respects there is here a foreshadowing of Christ. Cf. e.g., (a) John 17:5; (b) John 1:1-3; Col. 1:15-17; (c) Matt. 11:27; (d) Heb. 2:17, 18.
  2. What similar but greater gifts than those which wisdom offers in 8:32-36 are offered in Christ? Cf. e.g., Matt. 11:29; Luck 11:28; John 14:21; 17:2, 3; 3:36.
