I have a dilemma here in these verses. I would like to say it is Christ who in I Corinthians 1:24 is known as the power and wisdom of God. However if I do I would be lending credence to the ones who say that Christ is the highest of God’s creation.  Yet Christ was God and not created but the Creator of all that was created. (John 1:3; Hebrews 1:1-3)
My thought is that I can’t call this person Christ because of this word about being brought forth so what am I to do?  If you read any of my previous blogs you recall my writing about two figurative ladies called Wisdom and Folly.  What this writing is about is wisdom.  Solomon always uses the word she or her but here he didn’t.  Then in other times I used the word principle.  This word fits very well here too.  So I have the principle of wisdom and it fits very well with I Corinthians 1:24.  The verse, “My delights were with the sons of men” fits very well too about wisdom.
