n HTS : Theological Studies - A theology of the Greek version of Proverbs : original research
This contribution demonstrates that it is possible to formulate a theology of LXX Proverbs. It limits itself to a pilot study of three passages, Chapters 1, 2 and 8. A contextual approach is followed and the following conclusions, that have implications for a theology, are reached:
1. 1:1-7 indicates what Proverbs is not, i.e. speculative philosophical ideas
2. Chapter 2 demonstrates that the wisdom is foreign wisdom - the Hellenism of the day
3. Sophia in chapter 8 has a subordinate role in relation to God.
