People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 3:11


2Co 3:11 For if that which is done away [was] glorious. That which was glorious in the Old Covenant, or law. It includes the Decalogue. The whole is done away. This clear and emphatic statement is made on account of the Judaizing teachers of whom we find many traces in the two Letters to the Corinthian church. It is clearly asserted that the Old Covenant, "the ministration of death written and engraven on stones" (2Co 3:7)is done away. We are "not under the law, but under grace" (Ro 6:14,15). Compare Heb 8:13. Much more that which remaineth [is] glorious. But if that which was done away is glorious, much more is that glorious which abides forever.
