Gilbert House Fellowship #411: Proverbs 7–9

WISDOM IS NOT a female deity who’s been written out of Jewish and Christian theology over the last 3,000 years. 

This week, we study three more proverbs dealing with the value of wisdom and explain why “wisdom” has female pronouns in scripture. In short, it’s because all nouns are gendered in Hebrew and “wisdom” happens to be a feminine noun. That does not make personified Wisdom a female entity, much less the consort or wife of God—especially when we read the New Testament carefully and see that Luke, Paul, and the author of Hebrews explicitly linked Wisdom to Jesus.
