As John Owen continues to emphasize the main point of his Meditations and Discourses on the Glory of Christ, he shows that there are two ways to behold Jesus’ glory:
“There are, therefore, two ways or degrees of beholding the glory of Christ, which are constantly distinguished in the Scripture. The one is by faith, in this world, — which is ‘the evidence of things not seen;’ the other is by sight, or immediate vision in eternity, 2 Cor. v. 7, ‘We walk by faith, and not by sight.’” (Page 18)
Until we die, we will only be able to behold Jesus’ glory by faith. After that it will be by sight, and so eternally. While the sight is obviously better than only by faith, there is a real, definite “sight” by faith.
