“For I judged not myself to know any thing among you…”
” And I was with you in weakness…”
” And my speech and my preaching was not in persuasive words of human wisdom, but in shewing of the Spirit and power;”
” That your faith might not stand on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.”
(1 Cor 2, 6)
What impresses me the most on the beginning of Paul’s first letter to the christian comunity of Corinth is the way Paul refer to his weeknesses.
The Corinth society of those days was very sophisticated, where the most proeminent thinkers and philosophers of that time traveled to talk about their new thoughts and spread their teachings.
In his letters Paul underlines what is a reflection of his Theology, the focus on Jesus and God, not in his impressive phisical caracteristics or his own ideas and speech skills.
