Discussion for Wisdom of Solomon 2

  • JR
    1. The Apocrypha was written before Christ not after him about 130-70 B.C. I think . We now also have original Hebrew copies of some books like Ecclesiasticus 2. Wisdom 2:12-30 is definitely a prophecy of the unjust condemnation of Jesus Christ.

    Wisdom of Solomon 2:1-24 1 For the ungodly said, reasoning with themselves, but not aright, Our life is short and tedious, and in the death of a man there is no remedy: neither was there any man known to have returned from the grave. 23 For God created man to be immortal, and made him to be an image of his own eternity. 24 Nevertheless through envy of the devil came death into the world: and they that do hold of his side do find it. The Bible Gods word is about TRUST and FAITH! Something the UNGODLY does not have.
  • 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.

    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
