Discussion for 1 Corinthians 1:24

  • Christ definitely proved himself to be the power of God when he performed many miracles during his life on earth. Turning water into wine, feeding thousands with only a few fish and loaves of bread, and simply telling a fearsome windstorm to be quiet are some of his miracles that show how Jehovah God exercised his power through his son. Such a wonderful aspect of Jesus' personality to meditate on and it gives us hope of what he will do in the near future.

  • Jehovahthetruegod.blogspot for verse 24
    undeniable proof that that this scripture harmonizes with the wisdom that God created/obtained in proverbs 8:22-31. Christ is the Wisdom and Power of God, but he isn't God(Jehovah) himself. He's his Son .
