Matthew, chapter 11

11 "Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist! Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he."
So he didn't consider himself to be born of a woman? And John the Baptists may be the greatest now but it seems like in Heaven he will be quite small. How does that make sense?
25 At that time Jesus said, "I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants.
Seems like God doesn't like the wise and intelligent much. That explains a lot ...

"the least in the kingdom of heaven" refers to those who have gone to be with God. This is the reason they are greater.

For your other statement, it's not that God doesn't like the wise and intelligent, but what is being referred to here are those who think so highly of their wisdom and intelligence that they think they are self-sufficient. I think the truly wise learn every day how much more there is to know, and accept that there are some things that are unknowable.

Where does the Bible text say this? Or are you simply giving your personal interpretation here?
