The Great Synaxaristes of the Orthodox Church: January

   
Translated from the Greek

A volume of The Great Synaxaristes of the Orthodox Church

“The circumcision of our Lord Jesus Christ is commemorated today, brethren, which He condescended to receive in the flesh according to the commandment of the ancient law, ‘Ye shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be a sign of a covenant between Me and you [Gen. 17:11].’ Thus, we read in the Gospel according to Saint Luke: ‘And when eight days were fulfilled to circumcise the little Child, then His name was called Jesus, which He was called by the angel before He was to be conceived in the womb Lk. 2:21].’ As a Hebrew mother, the Virgin-mother fulfilled all the requirements of the law. The first of these was circumcision of her Son, which represented voluntary submission to the conditions of the law, and acceptance of the obligations, but also the privileges, of the covenant between God and Abraham and his seed.”
—“On the 1st of January, the holy Church commemorates the CIRCUMCISION, according to the flesh, of our Lord, God, and Savior JESUS CHRIST.”
