Who Jesus Is (And Who He Isn't)

The final question to a brief, really nice interview on Proverbs, Stephen Altrogge asking the questions and Dad answering them--
What one thing do you hope people take away from reading the commentary? 

That Jesus is the wisest, smartest, most omni-competent man anywhere. He is not just a really, really nice religious guru for people whose lives are privileged enough that they have margin and money for recreational religious sweetness. No, he is the shrewdest man in all the universe. He out-thinks everyone. And amazingly, he offers himself, in his fullness of grace, to complete idiots like me who are willing to listen and learn.
