Power of God and wisdom of God

Power of God and wisdom of God is a double name of Jesus (Yeshua‘) the Christ. In Paul’s argument, Jesus relates to both Jews and Greeks (Gentiles) in ways they can understand. The Jews sought signs of God (power), the Greeks wanted logical proof (wisdom). Jesus came as the fulfillment of both if only we can recognize it with eyes of faith.
