The Apostle Paul was a preacher to the Gentiles, a missionary, a church planter, and ultimately a martyr for the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. He was also a theologian of wisdom. He used the Greek noun for wisdom, sophia, repeatedly. If we look at how he used this word it is striking how often the idea of wisdom appears in some of his most famous passages. For example, in the doxology of Romans 11:33 “Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!” Most of the time Paul’s direct discussion of wisdom occurs in 1 & 2 Corinthians, Ephesians, and Colossians and so that is where we will focus our attention in this episode with Joel Kim. This part 1 of a 2-part episode.
