WHAT IS THE ROLE OF CREW CREATION?

After this ritual, the Child received the name Jesus, as the Archangel Gabriel told the Most Holy Mother of God on the day of the Annunciation (Luke 1: 31-33). The Fathers of the Church explain that the Lord was circumcised, so that later, no one would doubt that He truly assumed human flesh, and that His Incarnation was not just an illusion as some heretics had learned.

Establishing the act of circumcision

According to the Book of Making (chapter 17), the act of circumcision (in Hebrew mullah) was instituted as a visible sign of the covenant of God with the patriarch Abraham and his descendants, an act to be fulfilled in all male children, starting with the age of 8 days (vv. 10-14). As a result, all the men and children in the house of the patriarch and Abraham himself, 99 years old, together with his 13-year-old Ismael, underwent circumcision on the day of the actual act (see v. 23 -27). Then Isaac followed (21, 4) and all his descendants. On the basis of the covenant with God, the patriarch changed his name from Abram - the father of the heavens, to Abraham - the father of the Gentiles or the father of the crowd (Genesis 17: 5-6). Later in the book of Leviticus it is said that God commanded by Moses that all Israel's children should be circumcised eight days after birth. This was also the name of the child. Since circumcision was a sign of the covenant with God, he who was willingly forgiven of this act was no longer part of the Israelite community and should have been killed (Genesis 17:14).

Why on the eighth day from birth?

Day 8 is a transition from infantile to personal perfection, because on this day, in accordance with Jewish religious provisions, the infant becomes a child and acquires a certain personality. St. Andrew the Critanan separates the first 7 days after the birth of a child from the eighth, saying that the eighth day is the completion of the seven and the beginning of the future. According to the Jewish religious context, the eighth day is an extremely important stage for the human existence of each newborn in that it complements infantile age and opens the age of maturity that leads to perfection. "This is done, says the Holy Father, through the name that is given on the eighth day." Putting the name, in other words, gives the child a certain personal identity. This act solemnly recognizes the child's natural right to be a personal existence, that is, a perfectly constituted human being among other human beings. The perfection that Saint Andrew speaks of here refers to the personal identity that the child acquires when receiving his name.

Why is the putting the name around circumcised?

The circumcision on the eighth day shows the transition from a carnal state to a spiritual one. The liturgical act of cutting a small part of the body involves the rejection of a bodily condition in which every human being is born, while his substitution with the name implies the entry of the human being into another spiritual state that leads to perfection.

St. Andrew the Critanian refers to Abraham and his father Terah, in order to clarify these two conditions. Terah, which was idolatrous, is the fleshly condition of idolatry, which takes into account the material, bodily world, detached from its Creator. Abraham represents the spiritual state, which is connected with the Creator of the world, as the main and essential point of reference for the life of man and which makes man a member of the people of God. So, the Holy Father says, "Because Nature was to be troubled with the idols of Terah, the father of Abraham, it was necessary for a people of Abraham to be set apart for the Creator, through a seal, until His coming, man to be renewed. Circumcision rejects a residue of meat and provides a seal for the day to come, which takes into account future things. "

So, these two events, the circumcision of the Lord and the receipt of the name, remind us, Christians, that we have entered into a new covenant with God, and that we have been circumcised "with circumcision uncircumcised in the hand by stripping the body of the flesh, for the circumcision of Christ "(Colossians 2: 11). In this sense, even the name "Christian" (the next of Christ) is a sign of the entrance of mankind into a new covenant with God.

RalRey โ€บ I like this article in terms of what is said about circumcision, but there is something that I do not agree with: it is said of Mary, who is the mother of God. She, Mary, was the mother of the Son of God, the Lord Jesus. I do not understand why the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church share this doctrine that has no biblical basis ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŽจ

carmen3521 โ€บ @RalRey este es un articulo en rumano y traducido con el traductor en inglez. cuando dice ..la madre de Dios,, se refiere exclusivamente a Jesus Cristo. en ningun momento, nunca jamas alguien, algun cristiano puede desir que la virgen Maria fue la madre de Dios el Padre. se entiende mal. es que muchisimas veces aqui usamos la palabra ,,Senor,, pensando y referiendonos exclusivamente a Jesus Cristo. senor..el ingles ,,lord,, pero no el ingles God. pero claro, el traductor no puede saber esto. y mas y lo importante, los ortodoxos , muy pero muy pocas veses, casi nada usamos la palabra ,,senor,, ingles ,,lord,, pensando en Jesus. nosotros, los ortodoxos usamos directamente ,,jesus Cristo,, o hablando de Dios, usamos la palabra Dios. muy amenudo casi siempre, los de iglesias minoritarias usan eso lo que te lo e explicado. como babtistas, evangelicos, y similares. espero del corazon que lo has entendido. bueno, la duda que tengo es que los cristianos, ninguno aparte del bautiso normal, no tiene la circumcizia..si lo e escrito correcto, no se. eso lo tienen los islamicos. eso es mi duda sin respuesta.

Strabunica013 โ€บ @RalRey ...Yes, Yes Mary, was the mother of the Son of God, the Lord Jesus.
I use Google translation, and here comes the misunderstanding. I sometimes read some articles where I'm laughing, as I realize that something else is written there ... and google translates something else ...
