1 Corinthians 1 – vs.1 – Paul wrote 1 Corinthians with Sosthenes – Acts 18:17 – ruler of the synagogue who received Jesus. They were in Ephesus. Paul hears about divisions in the Church. Paul hadn’t been gone for more than 6 months. Paul tells the Corinthians they are sanctified, made holy by Jesus. He told them who they were in Christ and what the Lord had given them. Then, Paul ask them what they were doing arguing and causing dissension in the body of Christ. He tells them their wisdom is of the world and is foolishness. They didn’t come to Jesus with the world’s wisdom but with God’s. 1 Cor.1:21 “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. 22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;”(KJV).
