Example text

But even the figure of the son of man/servant gives way finally to another image, indeed the image which both closes Mark's description of Jesus in the words of the centurion at the cross (15, 39) and begins it (1, 1): "Son of God". "Son of God'" is used now to explain how it is that the Messiah will quietly, determinedly accept humiliation, betrayal, punishments, injustice and crucifixion, and will necessarily rise from all this to life again. The Messiah, powerful, wise and holy, will now show through his filial obedience, the obedience of the Son to his Father, how it is that the messiah embraced death.

The Figure of the Royal Messiah in the Old Testament Jewish writings, particularly the Old Testament, looked forward longingly for a time in which God would re-establish His authority over all powers, including that of Satan, and with it exercise His power to create His kingdom for His people. Many Jewish thinkers thought this kingdom would come about by a direct intervention of God alone. But many others thought that God would establish this kingdom through the agency of a human being, a king.

For pagan philosophers, one studies to learn the wisdom needed for salvation from corruption. For Israel, wisdom is not reached by study but by obedience to the Law revealed to Moses. Thus Old Testament wisdom is distinct, both in content and in source, from the philosophies contemporaneous with it. At a definite point in time, certain inspired Old Testament writers spoke not only of the Mosaic Law as an expression of God's wisdom, but also of a "Lady Wisdom" who reflects the mind, the wisdom of God in His full creation.
