2 Corinthians 3:12-18

12 Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. 13 We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to prevent the Israelites from seeing the end of what was passing away. 14 But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 15 Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. 16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate[a] the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.



Veil #1

Believing the Bible was written to you

Context Matters! For example, both sides of the Civil War used the Bible to either condone or condemn slavery. The Bible can say whatever you want it to say.


Veil #2

Dismissing the Bible

How I experience God is all that matters. This leads to a shallow understanding of God.


Veil #3

Trading the Major for the minor

Word = Jesus

word = old scriptures

What if we’ve become so consumed with the word of God we miss the Word of God? Don’t trade the uppercase “W” for the lowercase “w”.
