1 Corinthians 1:21 (KJV) The Wisdom of God VS The Wisdom of the World

1 Corinthians 1:21 (KJV)
For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
This passage transports the reader back to the Garden, and the serpent’s temptation, when Eve saw that the tree was “to be desired to make one wise.”[1]
God’s wisdom allowed for man’s wisdom to be tested. I cannot understand or explain the wisdom of God. I certainly do not believe His wisdom must be defended. I can see that it was the wisdom of God that allowed for the wisdom of the world to be tried and found wanting.
The wisdom of God created a path to what could be the only means of genuine relationship with God, the cross and the salvation of those who hear and believe the preaching of that cross.
  • The Jews would stumble over the preaching of the Cross
  • The Greeks would consider the preaching of the cross foolishness
But to the saved that same preaching is the power of God.
[1] Genesis 3:6
