Study 5 From The Book of Proverbs Is: Proverbs 8

1.      Contrast the description of wisdom with that of the woman in 7:5-27. How do they differ in speech, in conduct, in what they offer, and in the goal to which they lead their followers?
2.      What is said of wisdom in verses 22-31 concerning (a) its existence from the beginning; (b) its part in creation; (c) its communion with God; (d) its interest in man? Consider how in all these respects there is here a foreshadowing of Christ. Cf., e.g.’ (a) Jn. 17:5; (b) Jn. 1:1-3; Col. 1:15-17; (c) Mt. 11:27; (d) Heb. 2:17, 18.
3.      What similar but greater gifts than those which wisdom offers in 8:32-36 are offered in Christ? Cf., e.g., Mt. 11:29; Lk. 11:28; Jn. 14:21; 17:2, 3:3:36.
