2 Corinthians 3:1-17

2 Corinthians 3:1-17


When you read the underlined portions above, from 2 Corinthians 3, the Apostle Paul’s message regarding the Ten Commandments relationship between the Old and New Covenants becomes glaringly obvious…. it’s “glory was to be done away with,” because it was a “ministration of death” and a “ministration of condemnation” from which the Spirit of the Lord has set us at “liberty.”

Furthermore, Paul warns, that those still living behind the veil, still living under the Old Covenant, are “blinded” by it. The Good News is that the “veil is done away in Christ.”

Galatians 3:24-26

Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

The law was meant to prepare men for Christ, by showing them that there is no other way of salvation except through him. It had two especial ends: the first was to bring the people who lived under it into a consciousness of the deadly dominion of sin, to shut them up, as it were, into a prison-house out of which only one door of escape should be visible, namely, the door of faith in Jesus; the second intention was to fence about and guard the chosen race to whom the law was given—to keep them as a peculiar people separate from all the world, so that at the proper time the gospel of Christ might spring forth, and go out from them as the joy and comfort of the whole human race.—T. G. Rooke.
