Sophia, playful & rejoiceful; Slide 30


Play audio

Proverbs 8:22-35

Yahweh got me, Sophia / Hokmah,
in the beginning
Before time began.

We were together,
Before his works of old.

When there was nothing;
No hills, no mountains,

No water, no earth;
I, Sophia, was there.

I was daily his delight, dancing before him
Preceding and leading him,
Always rejoicing.

On the earth,

I rejoice with the children
Of our children.


Sophia is known for being playful, rejoiceful meaning cheerful. The work of creation is she and God’s “play”.  Notice it says she precedes and leads him.  But how can she LEAD God, isn’t that blasphemous or at the very least, uppity?  Well no. She’s sort of dancing and pulling him after her as they playfully create the world together
She’s basically dragging him along by his necktie and he’s loving every minute of it.
