Chad Bresson: “I don’t believe the scriptures would have us make a one-to-one correlation between what is written on the heart of flesh in the New Creation (2 Cor. 3) and what is written on the conscience of humanity. 2 Cor. 3 is making a stark, radical and antithetical contrast between “tablets” and “the Spirit of the living God”. That kind of radical antithesis doesn’t just include form but also content. The tablets have disappeared and with them what was written on them. One cannot have one (form) without the other (content) because Paul makes no distinction here between them and in fact has both in mind (the content functions as a “letter of recommendation” — 2 Cor. 3:1,2).
