« Prev That Christ is the Wisdom of God; and concerning… Next »

2. That Christ is the Wisdom of God; and concerning the sacrament of His incarnation and of His passion, and cup and altar; and of the apostles who were sent, and preached.

In Solomon in the Proverbs: “Wisdom hath builded herself an house, and she has placed under it seven pillars; she has slain her victims; she hath mingled her wine in the goblet, and hath made ready her table,39383938    [The house = the Church; the seven pillars = Isa. xi. 2, 3; her table = the Lord’s table; her cup = the sacrament of the Blood; her loaves = of the Body. Then her servants = preachers. So old authors.] and hath sent her servants, calling with a loud announcement to the cup, saying, Let him who is foolish turn to me: and to them that want understanding she has said, Come, eat of my loaves, and drink the wine which I have mingled for you. Forsake foolishness, and seek wisdom, and correct knowledge by understanding.”39393939    Prov. ix. 1–6.
