Discussion for Luke 2

  • A dsiciple
    Insight; the Law given through Moses was right from the mouth of God; NOTHING of his own thoughts! It was for the blood that the woman was unclean in giving birth; and for bringing to remembrance the redemption sacrifice of Christ for all who are born of women, that this purification was required. The Lord Jesus Christ Himself is without sin; yet He subjected Himself to fulfill all righteousness.
  • A disciple
    Insight; Have you not read, or perhaps forgotten, that the Covenant God made with Abraham, He established for all the son's of the Covenant for ever? and shouldn't He also who made the Covenant, when He came in flesh, Himself be subject to His own oath? Why did Jesus go to John to be baptized? Because "Thus it becomes us to fulfill all righteousness." Circumcision is a sign in the flesh, of faith.
  • Insight777
    V22, the days were accomplished, 8 days passed, but it does not actually say Jesus was circumcised. The purpose of the birth of Jesus is to remove false religion to establish the true religion. Jesus never circumcised anyone or teach it. Woman, Mary, is not un-pure after giving birth. NO Blood sacrifice needed. Male babies are not holy and female babies unholy. Both are holy because God gave life.
