The context of beating the fool The wisdom of beating the fool The messianism of beating the fool The covenant of beating the fool The anticipation of beating the fool The act of beating the fool The theology of beating the fool.
David Wenkel asks: Why did Jesus have to be beaten before his death on the cross? Christian theology has largely focused on Jesus' death but has given relatively little attention to his sufferings. Wenkel's answer contextualizes Jesus' crucifixion sufferings as informed by the language of Proverbs. He explains that Jesus' sufferings demonstrate the wisdom of God's plan to provide a substitute for foolish sinners. Jesus was beaten as a fool--even though he was no fool, in order to fulfill God's loving plan of salvation. This analysis is then placed within the larger storyline of the whole Bible--from the Garden of Eden to the story of Israel and beyond. --Book cover.
