To correctly understand the Torah, we must understand principles and definitions. Many misunderstand Paul when he speaks about “circumcision” in Galatians. They think he is talking about the literal act of circumcision in the flesh. In reality, this is a “code” word. You must unlock the code to get to the meaning and understanding.
In Galatians 2:7, Paul says:
But on the contrary, when they saw that the gospel for the uncircumcised had been committed to me, as the gospel for the circumcised was to Peter
For He who worked effectively in Peter for the apostleship to the circumcised also worked effectively in me toward the Gentiles.
In this passage, Paul is using the word “circumcised” to refer to the Jews, and the word “uncircumcised” to refer to the gentiles (or the non-Jews). So here is the real question Paul was getting to : Do the gentiles, the new believers in Yeshua who are NOT Jewish, do they need to convert to Judaism as an expression of their faith in Messiah Yeshua? Paul’s argument was NO! Later in Galatians, he states:
Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. Gal. 5: 2
In decoding the word “Circumcised” we have this meaning to the verse:
I, Paul say to you that if you convert to Judaism, Christ will profit you nothing.
