1 Corinthians 1:18 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The True Power of the Cross

18 To preach the message[a] of the cross seems like sheer nonsense to those who are on their way to destruction, but to us who are on our way to salvation, it is the mighty power of God released within us.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Corinthians 1:18 Or “expression [Gr. logos]” or “the act of proclaiming.”
  2. 1 Corinthians 1:18 The “message of the cross” becomes the ignition point where God’s power becomes operative and actualized with the ability to convert, transform, and save. The Aramaic can be translated “For he [rather than the message] is the power of God.”
