The Glory of Christ in the New Testament

This chapter presents an essay of the so-called reflected glory in verse 18 of the third chapter of the Second Corinthians. It examines what the third chapter precisely says about glory and how glory fits within the overall argument of the Second Corinthians. It explains that the glory which is seen in this chapter according to Paul's ministry is the glory which shines through suffering. The pattern Paul acted out is the pattern found in the Books of Philippians and Romans that gave him confidence that God will in the end vindicate both him and his ministry.
