Socrates was a Greek philosopher who is considered to be the father of Western philosophy. His most significant contribution to western society was a philosophical device known as the Socratic Method. This method of cross examination investigates one’s own beliefs in order to establish the validity of one’s own beliefs.
Pythagoras of Samos was a Greek mathematician who was the first scientist of antiquity to call himself a philosopher, or in other words a “lover of wisdom”. The Pythagorean theory states that the square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides. Thus the triangle is formed by three sides and three angles. And as we know God is Three in One: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And as we know man is one in three: the heart, soul, and mind. And all things are rooted in the Trinity.
Philosophy is derived from the Latin roots phil which means “love” and sophia which means “wisdom and understanding”. Thus philosophy is the love of wisdom and understanding. And those who pursue philosophy search for wisdom and understanding.
From the dust of the earth, God breathed life into mankind. And the purpose of life is the knowledge of good over evil. For God created all things of this world which is good. And the Son would teach man, it is God who is good.
The skin protects man’s flesh, but when the skin fails it becomes infected, and forms into sores and boils. And the boil of a leper would remain, for the leper would be left with a mark on his skin. And the Son made the scales of the leprosy clean. But man has refused to have his sins cleaned. “For thus says the LORD, ‘Your wound is incurable and your injury is serious. There is no one to plead your cause; no healing for your sore, no recovery for you.”
God commanded that man remove the foreskin of his flesh. And God commanded that the forefathers remove the foreskin of their flesh. And the foreskin of the flesh is the foreskin of man’s heart. For God asked men to remove the foreskin from th;eir hearts.
The skin is the covering which covers and protects the body. And God made a covering for His people.And the skin gives provision to all of mankind Yet the skin is only skin deep. For the skin is a just remnant of man’s sin in the Garden.
The foot is the part of the leg upon which all men stand. And the Father established the foot upon which all men stand. And God commanded His people to wash their feet in His presence. And the Son taught His disciples the way to wash their feet. For the Son washed their feet as their Servant.
The legs are the lower limbs of the body that are utilized for running. And God gave all men legs so they could run in this race. For all men strive to win in this race, for “do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.” (1 Corinthians 9:24-25)
The fingers are an extension of the hands. And His people are the fingers of God’s hands. For we work to complete the works of His hands. “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained; what is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him?” (Psalms 8:3)
