Context
Christ the Wisdom and Power of God

18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to us which are saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21For 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. 22For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23But we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block, and to the Greeks foolishness; 24But to them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
