Product Description

In this comprehensive introduction to Old Testament wisdom, Tremper Longman III examines Israelite wisdom literature in the context of the Old Testament and the broader Ancient Near East to determine the nature of wisdom in the Old Testament. However, in an effort to present the biblical theology of wisdom, Longman also explores how the New Testament uses the wisdom of the Old Testament, revealing its continued significance for life today. In this work, Longman asserts that wisdom should be understood as practical (the skill of living); ethical (a wise person is a virtuous person); and theological (rooted in the fear of the Lord).

Publisher's Description

Wisdom plays an important role in the Old Testament, particularly in Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes. This major work from renowned scholar Tremper Longman III examines wisdom in the Old Testament and explores its theological influence on the intertestamental books, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and especially the New Testament.

Longman notes that wisdom is a practical category (the skill of living), an ethical category (a wise person is a virtuous person), and most foundationally a theological category (the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom). The author discusses Israelite wisdom in the context of the broader ancient Near East, treats the connection between wisdom in the New Testament and in the Old Testament, and deals with a number of contested issues, such as the relationship of wisdom to prophecy, history, and law.
