Miraculous Spiritual Gifts Of Knowledge And Wisdom


Intellectual gifts

Gifts that have to do with ‘intellectual powers’.

a. Knowledge.

b. Wisdom.

a. Knowledge. Knowledge, ‘gnosis’ is a knowing, knowledge.

This gift is distinguished from the ‘word of wisdom’ in that information, ‘knowledge’ is in contrast with judgment and practicality of knowledge. The one with this gift had knowledge and the one with wisdom made application of that knowledge.

b. Wisdom. Wisdom, ‘sophia’ is sound judgment, intelligence, practical wisdom.

Individuals were given the gift of wisdom, and all other gifts, by being ‘moved ‘tell or announce’ by the Holy Spirit’, 2 Peter 1:21.

The Holy Spirit simply told these people what to say and do.
