in:
"But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God." {1Co 1:24} + "Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:" {Dan 2:20} + "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable [are] his judgments, and his ways past finding out!" {Rom 11:33} + "To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God," {Eph 3:10}
the wisdom:
Dr. Lightfoot well observes, "that σοφια [Strong's G4678], του [Strong's G5120], Θεου [Strong's G2316], the wisdom of God, is not to be understood of that wisdom which had God for its author, but of that wisdom which had God for its object. There was, among the heathen, σοφια [Strong's G4678], της φυσεως, wisdom about natural things, that is philosophy; and σοφια [Strong's G4678], του [Strong's G5120], Θεου [Strong's G2316], wisdom about God, that is, divinity. But the world, in its divinity, could not, by wisdom, know God." The wisest of the heathen had no just and correct views of the Divine nature; of which the works of Cicero and Lucretius are incontestable proofs.
the world:
"At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes." {Mtt 11:25} + "In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight." {Lke 10:21} + "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: ... Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools," {Rom 1:20-22} + "And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;" {Rom 1:28}
the foolishness:
"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." {1Co 1:18}
