Discussion for Wisdom of Solomon 2

  • John Public
    The deuterocanon or apocrypha were all penned after the completion of the Holy Bible in 150 AD. This means while a profitable read even recommended in the marginal notes of the 1611 by the translators, who were mere men inspired by God, as a reference. Clearly, however, as some of the above verses are quite messianic the root of the wisdom is indeed the author's mind, not that of the incalculable Holy Spirit of Christ the Lord.
  • Ukam
    Considering verse 20 of Chapter Two, of The Wisdom of Solomon, I don't think Solomon was still in his right standing with God when the entire Book was written. I suggest it remain rejected.
  • That is a beautiful saying in fact my favorite.
  • This is not bogus. God 's purpose for us was for us to be immortal. That 's why he created us in his image. Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: The reason why God told Adam and Eve not to eat from the tree because they would know good and evil. Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. We couldn 't be immortal knowing good and evil. 1 Corinthians 15:21 For since by man came death,.... Because of Adam 's sin, death came into the world. God made us to be immortal
  • Awe Kolawole for verse 4
    wisdom of Solomon 2 4 explained life as on permanent place. that when u die u are forgotten why can 't u try to be save
  • Charis C-Man
    The intro of this chapter, especially verse 10, tells you EXACTLY how the rulers of this world the sons of Belial, the Nephilims, the half-breed, seed of the Serpent think of the rest of the people. That 's why there will always be death, destruction, and famine in the earth as long as they are ruling. Yashaya The Christ is coming back, for His people Israel and for the nations that have fallen by their hands.
