“In Jesus Christ all the treasures of [divine] wisdom [comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God] and [all the riches of spiritual] knowledge and enlightenment are stored up and lie hidden.” — from the best selling and most distributed book of all time
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and discard the intelligence of the intelligent.” So where does this leave the philosophers, the scholars, and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made the wisdom of this world look foolish. Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe.
It is foolish to the Jews, who ask for signs from heaven. And it is foolish to the non-Jews, who seek human wisdom. So when we proclaim that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended and the non-Jews say it’s all nonsense. But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and non-Jews, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.
This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.
Here the wisdom of God in the knowledge of Jesus Christ is revealed: Who is Jesus Christ, really?
