Abstract :
In discussing the meaning of the verb θριαμβεύειν 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 ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ (2 Cor 2,14), and ἐν αὐτῷ (Col 2,15), after analyzing the dynamics of the participles, and by seeking to identify the persons behind the personal pronouns ἡμᾶς in 2 Cor, and αὐτούς 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.
