Yeshua was circumcised on the 8th day into the Abrahamic covenant, just like his fathers before Him and according to God’s instructions. These instructions for circumcision included several promises to Abraham in Genesis 17:4:
• He would be the father of many nations;
• He would inherit the land of Canaan;
• His wife, Sarah, would have a son (Isaac) and through him all the nations would be blessed.
Yeshua was circumcised and entered into this covenant as a Jew in order to fulfill these promises made to Abraham by God. WATCH as Ariel explains how our faith in Him today and our trust in Him for tomorrow, is based on HIM being the “Promised Seed of Abraham”.
