Veils are not just modern inventions used in some religions, we also read about them in the Bible. Moses had spent time with God and when he returned down the mountainside,his face glowed with the glory of God. When Moses was speaking to the congregation because his face was so radiant, he covered his face with a veil.Even though the glory of God was fading the people could not bear to look.

Paul tells us that we are not like Moses who had a cover his face. Because of the sacrifice of Jesus, we have such a hope and can be very bold.
