Are you SURE about all this?? The OT in 2 Cor 3??? Or the old covenant?
The two are not synonomous. And in the context of Ephesians, was it not
more referring to the law that separated the Gentiles and Jews because of
their particular boudaries, like circumcision,etc? And now there is no
more distinction?
And I see Paul in Col 2 telling us that what was done away with were the
regulations AGAINST us, the law that said, YOU SIN, YOU DIE! That is no
longer true. Done away with as a way of salvation, and judgment of the
Christian. Someone has paid the penalty of death for us, so that is of
no more effect.
