Context
Ministers of a New Covenant

1Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, letters of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? 2You are our letter written in our hearts, known and read of all men: 3For as much as you are manifestly declared to be the letter of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. 4And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: 5Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; 6Who also has made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.
