The more I read the book of Romans, the more I see connections between Paul's writings and the book of Wisdom. It seems as though Paul is using Wisdom as his source to thresh out theologically what that book was talking about in light of the resurrection of Christ. So many passages are parallel to each other, that you can't ignore that Wisdom had to be a source and Paul was writing from familiarity and love for the book. I know that somewhere out there a Catholic Theologian or Church Father wrote extensively about the links between these two books. Anyone know where it is or notice the same things I have?
Wisdom 14 and Romans 1
Wisdom 2:23 and Romans 1:
Wisdom 2:24 and Romans 5
These are just a few off the top of my head.
