Angels from the realms of glory, wing your flight o’er all the earth…

Thanks, Thomas. Very helpful. You say that I seem “reluctant to acknowledge that the ingredients going into the meat grinder include the notion of a pre-existent divine being”. Does wisdom count as a “pre-existent divine being”? I don’t think the New Testament speaks of a pre-existent “Son” entering into the world, but it does seem to me that the early church reconfigured Jewish wisdom motifs around Jesus.
