Knijga O Kristu

1 Korinćanima 2:1-16

1Draga braćo i sestre, kad sam prvi put došao k vama, nisam se služio uzvišenim ni dubokoumnim riječima da vam navijestim Božju poruku. 2Jer odlučio sam među vama ne znati ništa drugo osim Isusa Krista, i to raspetoga. 3Došao sam k vama slab—bojažljivo i drhteći. 4Moj govor i propovijedanje nisu se zasnivali na mudrim i uvjerljivim riječima, nego na djelovanju Svetoga Duha među vama, 5zato da svoju vjeru ne temeljite na ljudskoj mudrosti, nego na Božjoj sili.

6Doduše, kad smo sa zrelim kršćanima, navješćujemo mudrost—ali ne mudrost ovoga svijeta ni takvu mudrost koja bi se svidjela vladarima ovoga svijeta koji su ionako osuđeni na propast. 7Navješćujemo tajnu, skrivenu Božju mudrost koju je Bog namijenio našoj dobrobiti još prije postanka svijeta. 8Vladari ovoga svijeta nisu ju razumjeli—jer da jesu, ne bi raspeli našega Gospodina slave. 9Upravo je to značenje ulomka iz Svetoga pisma:

“Ono što oko još nije vidjelo,

što uho još nije čulo

niti um može zamisliti,

to je Bog pripravio

onima koji ga ljube.”2:9 Izaija 64:3.

10Ali mi to znamo jer nam je Bog otkrio svojim Duhom koji proniče sve, pa tako i Božje dubine. 11Tko može znati misli nekog čovjeka osim njegova vlastitoga čovječjeg duha u njemu? Tako ni Božje misli ne može znati nitko osim Božjega Duha. 12I tog nam je Božjeg Duha (a ne duha svijeta) Bog dao da bismo mogli znati čime nas je obdario. 13Govoreći vam o tomu, ne služimo se riječima ljudske mudrosti, nego riječima koje nam daje Sveti Duh—služeći se riječima Duha da bismo objasnili duhovne istine. 14Ali čovjek tjelesne naravi ne može razumjeti spoznaje koje daje Božji Duh. Njemu se one čine ludošću jer ih valja prosuđivati Duhom. 15Čovjek koji ima Duha može sve prosuđivati, ali drugi nisu kadri prosuđivati njega.

16“Jer tko poznaje Gospodnje misli?

Tko će njemu dati savjet?”2:16 Izaija 40:13.

Ali mi imamo Kristov um.

1 Corinthians 2:1-16

1And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.2:1 Some manuscripts proclaimed to you God’s mystery 2For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. 4My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.

God’s wisdom revealed by the Spirit

6We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9However, as it is written:

‘What no eye has seen,

what no ear has heard,

and what no human mind has conceived’2:9 Isaiah 64:4

the things God has prepared for those who love him –

10these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.

The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no-one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.2:13 Or Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual 14The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. 15The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, 16for,

‘Who has known the mind of the Lord

so as to instruct him?’2:16 Isaiah 40:13

But we have the mind of Christ.
