People's Commentary (NT)
II Corinthians 3:18 But we all. All Christians. With open face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord. Looking to Jesus and beholding in his covenant, in our hearts and minds as in a mirror, and contemplating his glory. Are changed into the same image. To look to Jesus has a transforming power. If we gaze upon him, we will become like him. As Moses unveiled before the Lord shone with the glory of the Lord, so we shall reflect the glory of Christ, and show forth his likeness. From glory to glory. Developing from one stage of glory to a higher one. [Even as by the Spirit of the Lord. Rather, "The Lord the Spirit", as in the Revised Version. II Corinthians 3:17 declares "the Lord is that Spirit". Our glory is from the Lord the Spirit. The figure here is a very beautiful one. By gazing upon the Lord we become like him and show forth his glory.
