Context Readings

New Covenant Ministry

7 But if the ministry of death, having been engraved in letters in stone was with glory (so that the sons of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses because of the glory of his face), which was being done away; 8 shall not the ministry of the Spirit be with more glory? 9 For if the ministry of condemnation is glorious, much more does the ministry of righteousness exceed in glory.
