1 Corinthians 1:21-24
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 Greeks, who seek human wisdom.
So when we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended
and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense.
But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles,
Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.
