Permanent glory (2 Cor. 3:11)

“If what was set aside

Came through glory,

Much more

Has the permanent come

In glory.”

εἰ γὰρ τὸ καταργούμενον διὰ δόξης, πολλῷ μᾶλλον τὸ μένον ἐν δόξῃ.

Paul said that if what was set aside or fading (εἰ γὰρ τὸ καταργούμενον) through glory (διὰ δόξης), much more (πολλῷ μᾶλλον) has the permanent remained (τὸ μένον) in glory (ἐν δόξῃ).  Paul continued with his contrast between the fading or set aside glory of Moses with the new permanent glory of Jesus Christ that remains with us.  Clearly, the glory of Jesus is superior to the glory of Moses.  The glory of the new covenant is eternal or everlasting, so that the older covenant of glory will fade away.  Isn’t it glorious to be with Jesus Christ?
