The Answer to Proverbs 4:7 + 1 Corinthians 1:24 = X

Bible verse equation answer Proverbs 4:7 1 Corinthians 1:24

Last post I asked you to solve the equation: Proverbs 4:7 + 1 Corinthians 1:24 = X

We had some great responses to this equation in the comments section. In this post I’ll share my own solution. (If this is your first time seeing this equation, and you want to solve it yourself, stop now and look up the Proverbs 4:7 and 1 Corinthians 1:24)

Bible Verse Equation Answer

Proverbs 4:7 says, “Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” (NIV) And the same verse in the King James version says, “Wisdom is the principal thing.”

1 Corinthians 1:24 says that Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God.

So from those scriptures I come to this solution: Proverbs 4:7 + 1 Corinthians 1:24 =

Jesus Christ is the principal thing. Get Jesus. Though it cost all you have, get Jesus.

    I love this post and this answer. As many of you know, I’m doing a Wisdom Challenge this year, reading a Proverb every day, so that I will have read the Proverbs 12 times by the end of the year. (Each month I am using a different version of the Bible.) This post, and answer combines the Old and New Testaments and sums this up for us perfectly. Great insight.
