Ministers of a New Covenant

(cf. Jer 31:31–34 )
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:1 - Are we beginning again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as do some, letters of commendation to you or from you?
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:2 - You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:3 - being revealed that you are a letter of Messiah, ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:4 - Such confidence we have through Messiah toward God;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:5 - not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:6 - who also made us sufficient as servants of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:7 - But if the service of death, written engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the children of Yisra'el could not look steadfastly on the face of Moshe for the glory of his face; which was passing away:
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:8 - won't service of the Spirit be with much more glory?
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:9 - For if the service of condemnation has glory, the service of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:10 - For most assuredly that which has been made glorious has not been made glorious in this respect, by reason of the glory that surpasses.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:11 - For if that which passes away was with glory, much more that which remains is in glory.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:12 - Having therefore such a hope, we use great boldness of speech,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:13 - and not as Moshe, who put a veil on his face, that the children of Yisra'el wouldn't look steadfastly on the end of that which was passing away.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:14 - But their minds were hardened, for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains, because in Messiah it passes away.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:15 - But to this day, when Moshe is read, a veil lies on their heart.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:16 - But whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:17 - Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 3:18 - But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord, the Spirit.
