Old vs New...no comparison really

2 Corinthians 3

The Commandments (LAW)-------------The New Covenant (GRACE)

written on tablets of stone (v. 4) -------written on the heart
the letter that kills (v. 6) ---------------the Spirit that gives life
a ministry that brought death (v. 7) ----a ministry that brings life
engraved in letters on stone (v. 7) ------ministry of the Spirit
came with glory (v. 7) ------------------even more glorious
the ministry that condemns (v. 9) ------the ministry that brings righteousness
no glory now in comparison (v. 10) -----the surpassing glory
it came with glory (v. 11) ---------------much greater glory
it is now fading away (v. 11) ------------the ministry that lasts
