1 Corinthians 2

2.4 my preaching ... not with persuasive words of human wisdom...  I assume this was not because he was unable to be persuasive, but by choice or the nature of the message.
2.3-5   Compare with Zech. 4.6 ..."This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' Says the Lord of hosts.
2.8  for had they known...  This is an absolutely facinating idea for me to think and wonder about.  We tend to think of Satan as almost omniscient, but this indicates a strategic error on his part.
2.9  Compare with Isa 64.4  For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, Nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him.
2.14  spiritually discerned ...
2.16  Compare with Isa. 40
12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, Measured heaven with a span And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weighed the mountains in scales And the hills in a balance? 13 Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, Or as His counselor has taught Him? 14 With whom did He take counsel, and who instructed Him, And taught Him in the path of justice? Who taught Him knowledge, And showed Him the way of understanding?
