Wheaton IL—Who hasn’t desired more wisdom? Where is it found? How is it cultivated? The Wisdom of God: Seeing Jesus in the Psalms and Wisdom Books by Nancy Guthrie takes a practical and honest look at Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon, focusing on issues of repentance, submission, happiness, and sexuality.
This 10-week study is ideal for both individuals and groups looking for a gospel- centered approach to the Old Testament wisdom literature. Written in a winsome, accessible manner, Guthrie shows how the wisdom literature of the Old Testament prepares us for and points us to the incarnation of the wisdom of God: Jesus Christ.
Each weekly lesson includes questions for personal study, a contemporary teaching chapter that emphasizes how the passage fits into the bigger story of redemptive history, a brief section on how the passage uniquely points to what is yet to come in the consummation of Christ’s kingdom, and a leader’s guide for group discussion. Additional resources are available online at SeeingJesusInTheOldTestament.com.
“Either we are shaped by the ungodly world around us, or we are shaped and remade by the Word of God,” says Guthrie. You will gain a deeper understanding of the Wisdom Literature as you join Nancy on this incredible journey to see Jesus in the Old Testament.
