2 Corinthians 4:6

God who said (o qeo o eipwn). Paraphrase of Genesis 1:3 . Who shined (o elampsen). Like a lamp in the heart (cf. Matthew 5:15 ). Miners carry a lamp on the forehead, Christians carry one in their hearts lit by the Spirit of God. To give the light (pro pwtismon). For the illumination. In the face of Jesus Christ (en proswpwi Ihsou Cristou). The Christian who looks on the face of Jesus Christ as Moses looked upon the glory of God will be able to give the illumination of the knowledge of the glory of God. See Matthew 2:10 for proswpon.
