1 Corinthians 2
Corinth was a thriving center of commerce with two seaports strategically located on a narrow isthmus between the Aegean and the Adriatic Seas. This city was also a center of idolatry and immorality where pleasure seekers would come to be entertained. During his second missionary journey, Paul established a church in this corrupt city and taught the Scriptures there for 18 months in A.D. 51-52. In A.D. 56 Paul wrote this epistle to the church at Corinth (5:9 indicates that he had written at least one previous letter to them) on his third missionary journey near the end of his years of ministry in the city of Ephesus (16:5-8).
In chapter 2 Paul argues that the gospel transcends human wisdom and must be spiritually discerned, since it cannot be grasped by the natural mind.
READING of 1 CORINTHIANS 2
Lord, I thank You for Your indwelling Spirit who leads me into a knowledge of the truth about Jesus, the Lord of glory. I rest my faith not on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.
