2Co 3:7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
2Co 3:8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
2Co 3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
2Co 3:10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
2Co 3:11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.


Clearly the reference to that which is done away is to the 10 commandments, as it was written and engraved in stone. The spirit is given to those who embrace Christ and his teachings.

Joh 14:15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Joh 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

According to Jesus' words, the Comforter/Holy Spirit is given contingent upon keeping His Commandments: which is what Paul is referencing above.




Gal 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
Gal 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
Gal 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
Gal 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
Gal 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
Gal 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
Gal 4:27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
Gal 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
Gal 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
Gal 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
Gal 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.


An allegory is a parallel example. Those who follow the law are Agar's children. Those who follow Christ (the NEW covenant) are Sarah's.




Heb 7:18 For there is verily a disannulling (CANCELLATION) of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.
Heb 7:19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.



The King of the Jews is Jesus, not Moses. The gospel of the Kingdom are the teachings of the kingdom that Jesus taught. The Kingdom of heaven is comprised of those who embrace and live by Jesus' teachings.
I agree with this. The Gospel of the Kingdom is what Jesus taught and the Gospel of Grace is what Paul taught. The Kingdom Gospel will be re-instated after the rapture of the Church during the Tribulation period.
