Happy New Year, on the eighth day of Christmas …

On the 1st day of the new year, we keep our attention on the celebration of the Incarnation of the Son of God. Luke records the event…

“And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.” (Luke‬ ‭2:21‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

This is in keeping with the instructions God gave to Moses.

“And on the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.” (Leviticus‬ ‭12:3‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

Joseph was described as a righteous man, he would have faithfully followed pertinent OT laws. We will see how important that becomes as time goes by.

And Happy New Year… don’t forget the black-eyed peas and the New Year’s concert from Vienna!
