Summary

In a tradition that mocks Greek philosophy and human wisdom, it goes without saying that the wisdom afforded Solomon in the Old Testament is central to the Bible's critique of Hellenism. What's not so obvious—at least at first glance—is how this critique is expressed in the foolishness of David's son and the outcome of his life.

Richard and Fr. Marc discuss Matthew 1:7-8.
