Abstract

Among the most prominent thoughts in Christian theology is Wisdom Literature. People often ask what the concept “wisdom” means and if at all there is the place of Wisdom Literature in the thinking of the sages. This article seeks to explore the above question. The paper will do this first, by identifying and discussing the concept of wisdom and thereafter, the place of Wisdom Literature in the thinking of the sages. Among others, it will argue by the use of various scholars, that the sages’ position of Wisdom Literature as a phenomenon is not unique to Israel; it is a universal reality, a creation of God or object of faith, and also as secular or human experiential reality.
