Wesley's Notes for John 7:50


7:50 Nicodemus, he that came to him by night - Having now a little more courage, being one of them - Being present as a member of the great council, saith to them - Do not we ourselves act as if we knew not the law, if we pass sentence on a man before we hear him?

    V24 proves physical cutting means nothing. Jesus does not cut flesh and does not teach it.
    Paul however continues to circumcise to establish the adherence to Jewish law as the example of the Jewish woman that had a son with a Greek man. Paul does not follow the example of behavior that Jesus established. Paul is a Jew first, Christian second. Acts 16:3

    "After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him." The hostile and hateful who oppose and contradict Jesus and any and all who love Jesus; would love it to be fighting and quarreling with us all the time, and wasting our time! But we have to know when its time to let men have their own ways, and leave them alone.

    Probably, if they were practicing Jews and did it 8 days after birth according to laws.

    Thanks for posting Luke 2:21. I repent of saying,"scripture does not tell us if Mary and Joseph circumcised their children. It is important to repent when scripture corrects us when we err. Or God will reprove us and call us a liar. He doesn't take is lightly when we speak untruth. I don't want him to call me a liar, do you want him to call you a liar? A question for all to consider.
