The expression Christ is the power and wisdom of God (1 Cor 1:24) presides over the theme of the thesis we propose to present, focusing on the dynamism of biblical wisdom, namely the path it establishes from the OT to the NT. To achieve this objective, we will try to understand how the Pauline affirmation “Christ, the wisdom of God for us” (1 Cor. 1,24) can be understood as a “terminus” for the fulfillment and fullness of this journey.The dissertation consists of three chapters: In the first, “the articulation of biblical wisdom reflection” we will introduce biblical wisdom reflection, identifying the fields of wisdom literature and biblical wisdom reflection. In the second chapter we will address “the dynamism of the personification of biblical wisdom” in its passage from the OT to the NT. In the third and final chapter, “Jesus Christ between the wisdom of Israel and the Church”, we will try to reflect on the figure of Jesus Christ as an intersection between the wisdom of Israel and the Church, understanding how Paul elaborates the formulation “Christ, the wisdom of God for us”, but also look at how the first Christian communities, the Modern exegesis and liturgy of the Church accepted this formulation, as the“terminus” of the biblical wisdom reflection.
