Jesus in his perfect life, substitutionary death, and glorious resurrection is God as refuge extended to humanity. When we repent and turn to him we are welcomed to experience God as refuge.
Jesus was the whole man we were always meant to be, but in His resurrection, Jesus was raised a new man and New Adam, inaugurating a new lineage through Faith so that we can become sons and daughters of God in our head, who is Christ.
Because of our sin, life “under the sun” is full of uncertainties. Fear of the unknown can paralyze us. But Solomon calls his listeners to wise and faith-filled action based on what they do know while trusting in a sovereign and good God.
The Preacher once again revisits the topic of wisdom and folly, but this time through the lens of chance and probability. Life “under the sun” is full of uncertainties, so how, then, shall we live? The preacher seeks to answer this question.
