In discussing the meaning of the verb qriambeu&ein in 2 Cor 2,14 and Col 2,15
commentators have failed to compare the two occurrences. This comparison is the purpose of the present study. After scrutinizing the respective expressions e)n tw=| Xristw=|(2 Cor 2,14), and e)n au)tw=|(Col 2,15), after analyzing the dynamics of the participles, and by seeking to identify the persons behind the personal pronouns hma=j in 2 Cor, and au=tou/j in Col, we arrive at the conclusion that the objects of the parade are not captives, but are incorporated into the triumphant Christ, who,
therefore, is the parade.
