Bible: 2 Corinthians 3:7-13

The Greater Glory of the Spirit’s Ministry

3:7 But if the ministry that produced death – carved in letters on stone tablets 1 came with glory, so that the Israelites 2  could not keep their eyes fixed on the face of Moses because of the glory of his face 3  (a glory 4  which was made ineffective), 5  3:8 how much more glorious will the ministry of the Spirit be? 6  3:9 For if there was glory in the ministry that produced condemnation, 7  how much more does the ministry that produces righteousness 8  excel 9  in glory! 3:10 For indeed, what had been glorious now 10  has no glory because of the tremendously greater glory of what replaced it. 11  3:11 For if what was made ineffective 12  came with 13  glory, how much more has what remains 14  come in glory! 3:12 Therefore, since we have such a hope, we behave with great boldness, 15  3:13 and not like Moses who used to put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites 16  from staring 17  at the result 18  of the glory that was made ineffective. 19
