1 Corinthians 2:1-8 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom1 as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.a 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.2 3 I came to you3 in weakness4 and fear, and with much trembling.5 4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words,6 but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power,7 5 so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power.8

Wisdom From the Spirit

6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature,9 but not the wisdom of this age10 or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.11 7 No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom12 that has been hidden13 and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age14 understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.15
