2Co 3:17 - what is meant? context ?
Any insight on the true meaning as can be ascertained from the text meaning on the statement in 2Co 3:17?
2Kor 3,17 (AV) Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] liberty.
What help would come from the context of the passage, such as what is stated in 2Co 3:6?
2Kor 3,6 (AV) Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
What does the text and context itself provide in terms of helping to arrive at a correct understanding of the statement made there?
I am not interested in theological ideas and theories being read into the text.
