Paul’s Gospel

Like the author of To the Hebrews, Paul refers to the glory and the power accompanying the giving of the law at Sinai. For him, however, the ultimate manifestation of God’s “transcendent power” (2 Cor. 4:7) has already taken place at the resurrection of Christ. The light shining on the face of the Risen Christ is the light that drove away the darkness “at the beginning.” The glory and the power that brought about the life of both the First Adam and the Last Adam now gives life to humans still living in the flesh and changes them from glory to glory till they attain to the glorious spiritual body at their resurrection from the dead. T hat is Paul’s Gospel.
