Episode notes

This Advent and Christmastide we are looking at the ancient "O Antiphons" and considering what they teach us of what we long for and what we are given in the gift of Jesus. The first stanza speak of Jesus as the "Wisdom from on high". Wisdom is something that is sought the world over and what the Bible tells us is that it is found in Jesus. Wisdom, after all, is skill in the art of godly living, living as God made the world. It's for this reason that the Bible tells us in Proverbs 8 that Wisdom was present at creation and John 1 and Colossians 1 catch on to this and say that Jesus is that Wisdom made flesh.

O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,

Who orderest all things mightily;

To us the path of knowledge show,

And teach us in her ways to go.
