“Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding” (Proverbs 4:7). When a person’s life embodies the pursuit of wisdom, it bears among its fruits the deep love and respect of family, friends, and colleagues. Derived from The Way of Wisdom, a book honoring biblical scholar Bruce Waltke, whose personal character and biblical study alike display wisdom, this short piece explores what can be learned about wisdom from the fall of Satan. Displaying a high level of scholarship and broadly useful insights, Ronald Youngblood’s piece both stretches and informs. May you, the reader, benefit.
