May 21st, 2023 – In the Jewish faith, the law and acts of service contained within the law, is a pathway to righteousness. One such act is circumcision. The circumcised were counted as righteous in the law. However, Paul counters this by expounding on the new covenant were the uncircumcised and circusised are equal if the both have faith. Abraham the father of all Israelites, was uncircumcised but it was his faith that made him righteous.
