“And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” Col. 2:15
The NKJV uses the words “public spectacle” instead of “made a shew of them openly,” To be made a public spectacle means to be embarrassed, or belittled before all. It means that there is someone or something more worthy. Jesus made a public spectacle of the law in that He showed it had no power to change or save anyone. He made it become and embarrassment to anyone who thought they could use the law to justify themselves before God.
