ummm, why, as Romans 3:1-2 says, is there much profit in circumcision? :pull:

Is 'circumcision' here simply another way of saying 'being a Jew' (a noun instead of a verb)?

Is this perhaps an example of Hebrew 'parallelism' where the same idea is repeated in two different ways?

What advantage then has the Jew
or
What is the profit of circumcision.

(parallel ideas are in the same colo(u)r.

There are other examples of this in the New Testament.

‘John Wesley once received a note which said, “The Lord has told me to tell you that He doesn’t need your book-learning, your Greek, and your Hebrew.”

Wesley answered “Thank you, sir. Your letter was superfluous, however, as I already knew the Lord has no need for my ‘book-learning,’ as you put it. However—although the Lord has not directed me to say so—on my own responsibility I would like to say to you that the Lord does not need your ignorance, either.”
