Illustration of Genesis 17:13 NLT & Colossians 2:11-12a GWT -- All must be circumcised. Your bodies will bear the mark of my everlasting covenant.
In [Christ] you were circumcised. It was not a circumcision performed by human hands. But it was a removal of the corrupt nature in the circumcision performed by Christ. This happened when you were placed in the tomb with Christ through baptism.
