Paul returns once again to the subject of circumcision; but in a very, very remarkable context. He declares Jesus Christ to be a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers. He then declares this promise is the ingathering of the Gentiles; where Israel saw circumcision as a mark of privilege before God, Paul says that from the beginning according to the Old Testament it marked salvation for the gentiles, the world wide mission entrusted to the covenant people.
