John 7:22


However, because Moses gave you the practice of circumcision 1  (not that it came from Moses, but from the forefathers), you circumcise a male child 2  on the Sabbath.


Ge 17:10-14; Le 12:3; Ro 4:9-11; Ga 3:17

NET © Notes

tn Grk “gave you circumcision.”

tn Grk “a man.” While the text literally reads “circumcise a man” in actual fact the practice of circumcising male infants on the eighth day after birth (see Phil 3:5) is primarily what is in view here.
