Since christians are obliged to be circumcised, was Jesus also circumcised?
Hey, what has the mission of the Son of the Almighty got to do with this? Has He ever talked about Himself outside the context of the Word? Why do we wantonly waste the power of Word that the Almighty has mercifully given us? Why do we tend to debase Eternity with our trivialities? Please if anyone of us has nothing tangible to say, he/she should stop debasing the Almighty through idle talks!
I am sorry I sounded this way, but the better we realize that certain things are better not trffle about the better for us.
What did the blood of JC substitute and what did it not?
Did it render obsolete the Judaic laws of Moses, thus?;
Stoning and burning to death
If true, does this mean practising anyone of these acts is against the new covenant of Jesus? Would that be a sin?

When was he called Emmanuel? As a child or as a preacher? Proof, please.

Oo ni nkon she tele ni! Ojo ro lo nlo! I wonder what I said that got you bent out of shape this much? You dislike hearing the truth. Its obvious.
As a jew Christ would have been circumcised. It was the law for ALL Jewish males.
Gen 17: 10 This is My covenant, which ye shall keep, between Me and you and thy seed after thee: every male among you shall be circumcised.
11 And ye shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of a covenant betwixt Me and you.
12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every male throughout your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any foreigner, that is not of thy seed.
13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised; and My covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
The circumcision of every male Jew was a symbol of God's covenant with Abraham. Verse 12 corroborates something pilgrim.1 mentioned earlier - Luke 2:21
And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
However we now have a token of a new covenant - the blood of Jesus Christ . . . we also have a new form of circumcision - Col 2:11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
Jesus, transliterated from the Latin Jesu, transliterated from the Greek Iesous, transliterated from the Hebrew Yeshua.
Immanuel -- Hebrew -
im - with
anu - us
el - God
or God with us.
Jesus Christ is Immanuel, "God with us,"
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son (Jesus), and will call him Immanuel.
Interestingly that are even quoting yourself! Relax, girl. You seem to hate truth and you are living in fantasy. Well, I will act as a reality check for you. When we are in a world of fantasy, its easy to say or accept that a material is 100% each of two or more completely different things, all at one and the same place and time.
The reality is different, because human knowledge and the design of nature as god has made to work so that human mind can appreciate it, are completely against this silly concept!
