Abstract

COOK, Johann. A theology of the Greek version of Proverbs. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.1, pp.01-11. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V71I1.2971.

This contribution demonstrates that it is possible to formulate a theology of LXX Proverbs. It limits itself to a pilot study of three passages, Chapters 1, 2 and 8. A contextual approach is followed and the following conclusions, that have implications for a theology, are reached: 1. 1:1-7 indicates what Proverbs is not, i.e. speculative philosophical ideas 2. Chapter 2 demonstrates that the wisdom is foreign wisdom - the Hellenism of the day 3. Sophia in chapter 8 has a subordinate role in relation to God.
