The Gifts of the Word of Knowledge and Wisdom

“For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit….”  I Corinthians 12:8. These are two related Gifts of the Spirit that are not directly defined in scripture but are clearly speaking gifts from the use of “word”. The Greek word for knowledge used here means simply knowledge and understanding. The Greek word for wisdom means the application of knowledge and understanding.  Therefore, knowledge focuses on a gift of understanding the deep-truths of Scripture
