Publisher's Description

In addressing the question “Who is Jesus?” the apostles reveal how wisdom is located only in Jesus Christ. Ebert shows how Old Testament wisdom motifs are fully appropriated in New Testament Christology and far surpassed in God’s Son.

He was a missionary in Asia for 21 years with the Christian Training and Missionary Fellowship and has advanced degrees from Asian Theological Seminary, Manila, Philippines, Biblical Theological Seminary, Hatfield, Pennsylvania, and Trinity International University, Deerfield, Illinois.

Editorial Reviews

"Two features of this book merit particular praise. First, negatively, Ebert carefully demolishes the "Jesus as Lady Sophia" Christology that dominates far too many books; and second, positively, Ebert fulsomely displays how true wisdom is rightly connected to Jesus Christ. Moreover, the author writes well. I hope this book will be read by many."
“Dan Ebert's Wisdom Christology is a fascinating biblical theological study. Ebert demonstrates persuasively how Wisdom, a central Old Testament theme, played a constraining role in the apostolic era’s first order question, “Who is Jesus?” What is equally compelling and inviting is Ebert’s insistence on engaging this Christological matter as a direct word to Christ’s church. This is no detached study. Rather, it is a gentle yet prophetic word for believers to coordinate their lives with the wisdom offered in Christ; or better, with the Wisdom who is Christ! I heartily and gratefully recommend it."
"Dan Ebert reveals the intimate connections between two key biblical motifs, teaching about Jesus Christ and wisdom. By doing so, he helps us understand better the nature of our Lord and what it means to be wise. His book is a marvelous example of biblical theology and shows how that biblical theology informs the way we are to live as God’s people in the twenty-first century. It is grounded in solid research yet very accessible."
"Pastoral, insightful, and significant, Dan Ebert's Wisdom Christology expounds key truths about Christ, clarifies how Christ is the wisdom of God, and displays how Christology often functions as wisdom in the New Testament. Ebert models how careful exegesis grounds sound theology and shows how sound theology must be applied—to the church and for the church."
