Section 5: The Church

Fall/Winter, a.d. 50/51

When I came to you, I did not come preaching God’s secret with fancy words or a show of human wisdom. I decided that while I was with you I would forget about everything except Jesus Christ and his death on the cross.… My teaching and preaching were not with words of human wisdom that persuade people but with proof of the power that the Spirit gives.

(1Cor 2:1-4, ncv)

So Paul stayed for a year and a half, teaching them the word of God.

(Acts 18:9-11, niv)
