2 Corinthians 3:7-18 - The Glory Of The New Covenant

7 But if the ministry of death engraved in a writing on stones was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses on account of the brightness of his face, which passed away, 8 how shall not the ministry of the spirit be glorious? 9 For if the ministry of condemnation was a glory, much more will the ministry of righteousness abound in glory. 10 For that which was made glorious was not glorious in this respect, on account of the surpassing glory. 11 For if that which has passed away was with glory, much more will that which continues be in glory.

12 Having therefore this hope we use great boldness, 13 and not as Moses put a vail on his face, that the children of Israel might not see to the end of that which has passed away; 14 but their minds were blinded. For to this day in reading the old covenant the same vail remains, not taken away because it is taken away in Christ; 15 but to this day when Moses is read a vail lies upon their minds; 16 but when they turn to the Lord the vail is taken away. 17 And the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. 18 And we all with unvailed face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same likeness, from glory to glory, as by the Spirit of the Lord.
