A Jewish Nativity Narrative Limerick 1.1

by Joel Kravitz

Come for the birth. Stay for the bris

The circumcision of Jesus is an event from the life of Jesus, according to the Gospel of Luke chapter 2, which states in verse 21 that Jesus was circumcised eight days after his birth (traditionally January 1). This is in keeping with the Jewish law which holds that males should be circumcised eight days after birth during a Brit milah ceremony, at which they are also given their name.

This snippet’s lost in Christmas lore joy.
Baby Jesus was not the first “Goy.”
Here’s what most Christians miss –

The Wise Men came for the Bris….
Which Jews have for a new baby boy!

Sorry about the snippet/snip it pun…couldn’t help myself
