1 Corinthians 2:1 - 2:5

Paul’s Reliance upon the Spirit

And when I came to you, brothers, I did not come with superiority of word or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the witness of God.
2 For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 4 and my word and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
