2010-06-30 — At Agnus Day, we’re big fans of stream-of-consciousness exegesis. It makes us feel profound.
See what large letters I make when I am writing in my own hand! It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh that try to compel you to be circumcisedâ€”only that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. Even the circumcised do not themselves obey the law, but they want you to be circumcised so that they may boast about your flesh. May I never boast of anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is anything; but a new creation is everything! As for those who will follow this ruleâ€”peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.— Proper 9, Series C
