1 Corinthians 1:17-20 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
17 For Christ did not send me to baptize,1 but to preach the gospel--not with words of human wisdom,2 lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.

Christ the Wisdom and Power of God

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness3 to those who are perishing,4 but to us who are being saved5 it is the power of God.6 19 For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate."a7 20 Where is the wise man?8 Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age?9 Has not God made foolish10 the wisdom of the world?
