We have begun our next topic based on Proverbs. Comparing Proverbs with other ancient Near Eastern wisdom sheds light on how the collection arose in the first place. In order to instruct their sons, Court officials in many lands would pull together the wisdom they had acquired in a lifetime of diplomatic service. Prophetic authorities added Solomon’s proverbs to the canon of scripture. A manual of instruction for the king’s son became available to all God’s children.
This study will look at select proverbs from Solomon’s collection, grouped together under ten different themes. The first evening we looked at the subject of Choice, leading to a lively and interesting discussion around dinner invitations.....
Gaining Wisdom is about honouring our parents and raising our children, handling our money and conducting our sexual lives, going to work and exercising leadership, using words well and treating friends kindly, eating and drinking healthily, cultivating emotions within ourselves and attitudes towards others that make for peace. Not just a topic for ancient times but relevant to us today.
Come and join us between 7.30-9pm everyone welcome!
