Circumcision of Christ
According to the Jewish worship the removal of the foreskin was considered as a symbol of divine covenant (Genesis, 17:10-13). There was controversy among the early Christians (St. Paul in his Letter to the Philippians 3:3).
No culto judaico consideravam a remoção do prepúcio como símbolo de aliança divina (Genesis, XVII, 10-13). Houve controvérsia entre os primeiros cristãos (São Paulo in Carta aos Filipenses III, 3).
