Jews require a sign
The Greeks seek after wisdom
Christ is Crucified
For the Jews a stumbling block

Wisdom and power
Foolishness of God is wise
Strain of God stronger than man

Yours are always exceptional. I have to sometimes go to the Tanka to say way I feel that needs to be shared.
Wonderful! I am pondering the Greek wisdom (logos) and the signs of the Jews. And know that they are perfectly tied together in the Gospel of John.
It should be easy as logos is, The Word of God, made incarnate in Jesus Christ.
It is also a Greek philosophy that means something akin to ultimate reason and is tied to the divine through their ancient temple religion.
I’ll have to look up logos again. I only used Strong’s citation.
Oh, Boo, I really liked this one a lot too!! great job! blessings, Terri
Couldn’t do it justice with a Haiku.
Good interpretation, though.
