I Corinthians 1:18-21 As Christianity expanded beyond the original Jewish nucleus into the Greco-Roman world, it was challenged with new obstacles one of which was Greek philosophical thought.

I Corinthians 2:1 and 2 The testimony of God is a two-pronged Gospel: 1) Jesus is the Christ, and 2) the significance of the crucifixion.

Acts 8:12; 28:23 and 31 Succinct examples

I Corinthians 2:3 Acts 18 records Paul's original visit to Corinth, which followed the hardship in the cities of Philippi, Thessalonica, Berea, and Athens.

I Corinthians 2:4 and 5 Paul is careful to ensure God is glorified and not himself.

I Corinthians 2:6 and 7 Paul made known the great mystery.

Genesis 3:14 and 15 From this time forward, the devil endeavored to destroy the seed of the woman, which explains much of what is recorded in the Old Testament (i.e. Cain and Abel, Abraham, Esau & Jacob, Joseph, David...).

The devil did not understand that the seed of the woman would be created by God, nor did he know the hidden wisdom of God for man's redemption.

Romans 16:25 and 26

Romans 3:21-26 Man's redemption through the sacrifice of the perfect man, Jesus.

Colossians 1:26 and 27 Christ in you

I Corinthians 2:8-10 The spirit reveals these things.

I Corinthians 2:11 and 12 God wants us to know.

I Corinthians 2:13-16; Isaiah 40:12-26; Romans 11:33-36

I Corinthians 2:16 No one, not even Jesus, comes close to the wisdom of Almighty God, BUT we have the mind of Christ.

I Corinthians 3:1-4 What ruins the mind of Christ!
