2 Corinthians 3:10

In this respect (en toutwi twi merei). The glory on the face of Moses was temporary, though real, and passed away (verse 1 Corinthians 7 ), a type of the dimming of the glory of the old dispensation by the brightness of the new. The moon makes a dim light after the sun rises, "is not glorified" (ou dedoxastai, perfect passive indicative of doxazw). By reason of the glory that surpasseth (eineken th uperballoush doxh). The surpassing (uper-ballw, throwing beyond) glory. Christ as the Sun of Righteousness has thrown Moses in the shade. Cf. the claims of superiority by Christ in Mt 5-7.
