"For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men."
The Apostle Paul, 1 Co 1:22-25
"The cross of Christ reveals the love of God because it shows what that love is prepared to suffer for the beloved."
