1 Corinthians 2:6-16 - Wisdom from the Spirit

1. Did your parents ever tell you about something, “You’ll have to wait until you’re older”? How did you feel then? How do you feel about Paul addressing this section to “the mature” or to “mature believers?” Are you a mature believer?

2. In Verse 7, Paul speaks of “the mystery of God” [the NIV says “God’s secret wisdom”] that has been hidden. What is this hidden secret? (1 Peter 1:10-12)

3. Has God’s secret plan now been revealed to everyone?

4. What point is Paul making by his quote from the Old Testament (Isaiah 64:4) in Verse 9? (Isaiah 65:17, Revelation 21:1)

5. Philosophers were respected as people who could search out deep truths; in contrast, how does Paul say the truth of the Gospel is discovered (verses 10-13)?

6. From the references to “wisdom” in this passage, what differences do you see between human wisdom and God’s wisdom?

7. Why did Paul’s words here carry authority? (Verse 13)

8. Do you know any people who can’t understand your decision to follow Christ or think that it is silly?

9. What do you think Paul means in Verse 16 when he says “we have the mind of Christ”? Is he saying that we are on the same mental level as God? (Philippians 2:5-8)

10. Are you personally spending enough time with Christ and the Gospel to have his very mind in you?
