St. John the Baptist GOC
Orthros & Divine Liturgy - Circumcision of our Lord Jesus Christ
Since the Mosaic Law commands that if a woman give birth to a male child, he should be circumcised in the foreskin of his flesh on the eighth day (Lev. 12:2-3), on this, the eighth day from His Nativity, our Saviour accepted the circumcision commanded by the Law.
