Luke: The Wisdom of Jesus


“In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” - Colossians 2:3


The Gospels present Jesus as the fulfillment and culmination of all that came before Him in redemptive history. He is the true and better king, the true and better prophet, the true and better priest and so much more. These aspects of his ministry are anticipated throughout the Old Testament. Like shadows, they reflect the substance of the person and work of Christ. 


Among the various dimensions of the ministry of Jesus, one is often overlooked: Christ our wisdom. 


Just as the lives of the kings point to Christ ,and the lives of the prophets point to Christ, the life and writings of the Old Testament sage Solomon points to Christ as well. Jesus makes this point himself in Luke 11:31. He recalls the story of the Queen of the South who traveled a great distance to learn the wisdom of Solomon King of Israel. Then, referring to himself, he says “…she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.”


The apostle Paul reaffirms this when he calls Christ “the power of God and the wisdom of God.” (1 Cor 1:24). In Colossians 2:3 he says “In [Christ] are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”


In this series, we will mine the wisdom of Jesus as recounted in the unique parables of the Gospel of Luke in chapters 10 through 18.
