Not one of the rulers of this age understood this; for if they’d, they might not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it’s written,

“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the human coronary heart conceived,

Now we have now acquired not the spirit of the world, however the Spirit that’s from God, in order that we might perceive the items bestowed on us by God. And we communicate of these items in phrases not taught by human knowledge however taught by the Spirit, decoding religious issues to those that are religious.
