Hold on a moment...I thought God the Son wasn't created, having coexisted with God the Father since before time?
No need to panic, all the commentaries coming from Catholic sources and teaching of the Church Father's are not yet definitive more so defined as a Dogma regarding the definite identification of the Wisdom described in Proverbs8:22.
Reading St.Louis De Montfort "Love of Eternal Wisdom" is also hard to digest but it is aligned with the Church Father reflection like St.Justin Martyr. But, reading it will still leave room for some doubts if Jesus was really the Wisdom spoken to in that passages.
Wisdom is created by God for only one purpose and that is Salvation of Mankind.
And thus the paths of those on earth were set right,
and people were taught what pleases you,
and were saved by wisdom.(Wisdom9:18)
St.Catherine of Sienna said it simply and profoundly;
"All things are pre-ordained towards the salvation of man".
I loved how King Solomon described how God created all things thru His Word but when it comes to forming a man, King Solomon said God created them by His Word & Wisdom.
“O God of my ancestors and Lord of mercy, who have made all things by your word,and by your wisdom have formed humankind to have dominion over the creatures you have made, and rule the world in holiness and righteousness, and pronounce judgment in uprightness of soul, give me the wisdom that sits by your throne. (Wisdom9:1-4)
Why God uses Wisdom in forming man? Because man need to be breathe upon in order for it to have a living soul.
"Then the LORD God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, and the man became a living being." (Genesis1:27)
"For she(Wisdom) is a breath of the power of God, and a pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty;...(Wisdom7:25)
The word "qanah" does not refer to Jesus the Logos because He is "begotten" not created. Jesus existed in the "bosom of the Father".
No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.(John1:18)
The word "qanah" means to create or birthed was referred to by King Solomon as a Spirit existing beside God meaning, the Wisdom is not internal to God nor cosubstantial with God like the Logos.
Then I was constantly[c] at his side.
I was filled with delight day after day,
rejoicing always in his presence,
rejoicing in his whole world
and delighting in mankind. (Proverbs8:30-31)
So, who is the Spirit of Wisdom and how can we properly understand the word "qanah".
God in eternity by the love of the Abba Father to the chosen Woman her beloved daughter, and the love of Jesus to His beloved Mother, and the love of the Holy Spirit to Her Spouse had "conceived" in eternity the birth of the "Spirit of Created Wisdom". I said spirit because God is a Spirit and when it gave birth it brought forth a spirit too.
Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.
Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.(John3:6)
God in eternity had "qanah" or birthed the Spirit of Wisdom, which King Solomon was surprised because Wisdom is the Mother of it all, and Wisdom is the breath that brings life to every creature.
I rejoiced in them all, because Wisdom is their leader,
though I had not known that she is their mother.(Wisdom7:12)
In eternity the birth of Spirit of Wisdom, the Mother of all the Living in the order of grace is the First Act of God before He created everything, the Spirit of the Mother of all the living the source of breath must be created first. All creation are connected to Wisdom and human formed had the source of life thru the breath of God which is the Wisdom in Proverbs8:22.
In closing, Jesus the begotten son of God the Logos existed in eternity at the "bosom of the Abba Father" while the "Spirit of Wisdom" birthed or created by God was "beside Him" meaning Wisdom is external. In eternity, the Most Holy Trinity existed plus the Spirit of Created Wisdom that encompasses the Salvation of Mankind the Divine Plan of God from alpha to omega.
