JesusJames*.jpgJames 3:17-18 can be said to define Jesus. Notice these words:

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then
peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit,
impartial and sincere.

Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

I am going to do something different today. I have put in bold the “friends of wisdom.”  I want to ask you to show where you think Jesus exhibited each of these, but I’m asking that commenters restrict themselves to one of these “friends of wisdom” and discuss where they see this “friend of wisdom” in the teaching and praxis of Jesus. (So, one person can comment on “purse” and another on “peace-loving” etc..)
