Reflections from the Far East on the role of the Sage vs. the modern-day Scholar

One thought on “Reflections from the Far East on the role of the Sage vs. the modern-day Scholar”

  1. fascinating, Hannah. I stumbled on your blog tonight (2/26) as I am researching the concept of Wisdom for a study on the book of James in the Bible. Much of what you cite here relates to the concept I am developing in my study. James has been called a “Book of Wisdom” for the New Testament by several commentators (such as Warren Wiersbe). I am looking a very brief overview of “wisdom” from the early centuries (BCE) to develop the idea that the Jewish Christians in the first century following Christ’s resurrection would have been very familiar with short phrases intending to impart wisdom. Thank you for sharing these insights. Very helpful. Blessings.
