The wisdom we teach is not from this world.

“We teach wisdom to people who are mature, but the wisdom we teach is not from this world. It is not the wisdom of the rulers of this world, who are losing their power. But we speak God's secret wisdom that has been hidden from everyone until now. God planned this wisdom for our glory. He planned it before the world began. None of the rulers of this world understood this wisdom. If they had understood it, they would not have killed our great and glorious Lord on a cross.” ~1 Corinthians 2:6-8

I’ve included the next two verses - it helps to e xplain what Paul is saying. He is talking about the mission of Christ from John 3:17 “For God did not send His Son into the world so that He might condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

For thousands of years, God was the Jewish God who would send a Jewish Messiah to save the Jews. Even though God provided many hints that His plan was bigger, they went by unnoticed. For example, the Exodus from Egypt - even television got that part right in the ‘Ten Commandments' - many non-Jewish people were saved as well [Exodus 12:38]; Rahab was ‘saved outside the camp’, a forecast of Jesus being crucified 'outside the camp’ [Joshua 2:6; Hebrews 13:12-13]; the prophets Elijah and Elisha took refuge with and healed Gentiles [1 Kings 17-18; 2 Kings 5-8], the list goes on and on to climax on Good Friday, when as Jesus gave up His Spirit, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom [Matthew 27:50-51] so that now, “We have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus by a new and living way opened for us through the veil, that is, His body.” [Hebrews 10:19-20] Here we see the image of Jesus’ flesh being torn for us just as He was tearing the veil for us. Because Jesus has died on the cross, the gates to God’s presence are open, and the age of the new covenant has dawned.

The new covenant is one of INCLUSION, not exclusion. As we prepare to celebrate Holy Week, may our hearts and minds be focused on the love and mercy of our Lord Jesus, that our lives shine with His light as a beacon of hope, an anchor in this tumultuous time, where the wisdom of God will stabilize and strengthen the very foundation of our world.

“Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised us faithful.” ~Hebrews 10:23
