In this excerpt from the introduction, Moseley shows us the countercultural nature of Proverbs and the consequences of refusing the wisdom found within.

Recently a Logos blog post appeared showing how to research a hapax legomenon in the Bible. This Greek phrase literally means “something said only once” and it refers to a word which appears only once in a literary context or an author’s works. The blog correctly points out that numerous hapax legomena occur in the New Testament.
