The Jews ask for miracle and the Greeks for a higher knowledge, while we proclaim a crucified Messiah, For the Jews, what a great scandal! And for a Greeks, what nonsense! But hi is Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God for those called by God among both Jews and Greeks.
In reality, the “foolishness'” of God is wiser than humans, and the “weakness” of God is stronger than humans. and the “weakness” of God is stronger than human.
Jn 2:13-25(or Jn 4:5-42)
As the Passover of the Jews was at hand, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple court he found merchants selling oxen, sheep and doves, and money-changers seated at their tables. Making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple court, together with the exon and sheep. He knocked over the tables of the money changers, scattering the coins, and ordered the people selling doves, ” Take all this away, and stop making a marketplace of my Father’s house!”
His disciples recalled the words of scripture: Zeal for your House devours me like fire. The Jews then questioned Jesus, “Where are the miraculous signs which give you the right to do this?” And Jesus said. “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.’ The Jews then replied, “The build of this temple has already taken forty-six years, and will you raise it up in three days?”
Actually, Jesus was referring to the temple of his body. Only when he had risen from the dead did his disciples remember these words; then they believed both the Scripture and the words Jesus had spoken. Jesus stayed in Jerusalem during the Passover festival, and many believed in his name, when they saw the miraculous signs he performed. But Jesus did not trust himself to them, because he knew all of them. He had no need of evidence about anyone, for he himself knew what there was in each one.
