6 CWS 171. 7NPNF 1 12:30. 1 Mipe PL 301722C. 'NPNF 1 12:30. 2:6-12 GOD'S SECRET WISDOM Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. 7But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glorification. 'None of the rulers of this age understood this; for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

AMBROSIASTBR: Paul testifies that he has been sent to reveal a secret wisdom which the princes of this world do not know and which they therefore label stupid. The wisdom of God is hidden because it is not in words but in power. It is impossible in human terms, but it can be believed by the power of the Spirit. God foresaw the future sins of the world and therefore decreed this in order to confound those who would turn his wisdom into their own stupidity, and also to glorify us, who would believe it.
