It is necessary to demystify the reading of Scripture, which for many has an aura of Mystery - Unmistakable Mysticism, which demands the Anointing of the Apostle Menganus, when the intention was from the beginning that the Word reaches all men (he who has ears , listen!) These deceived "Mystics" are missing out on what God is saying, when the Writer (God himself) through his amanuensis (the "material" authors) strives to show clearly in the Message Christian.
This is only a basic outline of the reading of 1 Corinthians chapter 1, that being able to do so at the time of reading will give you the guideline that you are understanding the text. And in return, if they can not do it, it is because they have not understood the message of reading.

1. HEADING: According to the type of writing, in this case a letter, this section is for:

to. Presentation of the sender, in this case Pablo, and for that reason it starts like this:
"1 Paul, called by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus, and our brother Sosthenes."

b. To identify the recipients: "2 to the church of God which is in Corinth, to them which are sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his holy people, together with all who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ everywhere, Lord of them and of us. "That is to say, first of all to Corinthians and then to all other believers in all time and space.

From verses 4 to 9, Paul has kind words with the recipients of the letter. The Apostle highlights all the things that the believers have received spiritually from the Lord, of pure Grace: "Unity to Christ you have been filled with all riches, both in word and in knowledge. 6 So our testimony about Christ has been confirmed in you, 7 so that you do not lack any spiritual gifts as you look forward to the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ. 8 He will keep them steadfast to the end, that they may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 Faithful is God, who hath called you to fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. " While this is what Christ has given to the Corinthians, we will see that it would seem that they would never have received it, judging by the serious problems that this Church had. It is as if from verse 4 to 9 was how the Church in Theory should work, compared to what it was actually in practice.

3. Then Paul begins to state the reasons why the Epistle writes to them. In this chapter there are two:

to. DIVISIONS IN THE CHURCH Verses 10 to 12. In the Church there were rivalries, ministerial jealousies, and the brothers were divided into factions, for reasons of predilection for a certain Leader (Paul, Cephas-Peter, Apollos, and others only to Christ). Each of these leaders had a way of exposing and thinking, and the Corinthians had not learned to take from each the best part without dividing the Church of Christ into sectors (sects)

b. THE WISDOM OF PHILOSOPHERS From verse 20 to 25 Paul emphasizes differentiating the "Wisdom from the wise" that the NIV very well translates philosophers, and is that the Greek philosophers sought the definitions of God from their own wisdom and not from Revelation which God Himself does in His Word. For those who have the opportunity to study the subject "Introduction to Philosophy" you will see that this same philosophical stance is still present from Antiquity to our days. In verse 22 he differentiates with the Jews, who constantly asked for "signs and miracles," instead of believing in Scripture and Christians (those born again) that we preach Christ dead for our sins, as opposed to the Gnostics who said that Jesus had not come in body (only in spirit) and therefore had not died. They would do well to expand this by reading some good Bible commentary.

c. From verse 26 to 31, Paul devotes himself to "lowering the fumes" to the Corinthians, who believed themselves to be the "Best of the World", but the Apostle points out that in reality "Not many of you are wise, according to merely human criteria ; nor are many the powerful or many of noble birth. " And he openly tells them to stop boasting about themselves and instead, "If anyone is to boast, let him boast in the Lord."
