Where can true wisdom be found? The early church identified it in the doctrine of Christ. In Wisdom Christology: How Jesus Becomes God's Wisdom for Us Daniel J. Ebert explains how Old Testament motifs were appropriated in New Testament Christology; explores the gospel invitation to find wisdom and salvation in Jesus; and examines how the application of God's wisdom in his Son addressed challenges in the Christian community.
