It is a living hope that we have, producing not dead, but living, works).

Not His body, but His weak suffering flesh, was the veil; His body was the temple (John 2:19).
By a living way The way of faith, whereby we live indeed. Which he hath consecrated Prepared, dedicated, and established for us.

(h) So Christ's flesh shows us the Godhead as if it were under a veil, For otherwise we could not stand the brightness of it.
