“Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm


the promises made unto the fathers: “ – Romans 15:8



Jesus’ role in His ministry of the circumcision is described by three characteristics according to Romans 15:8:


1. He came to the Jews


2. He taught the prophetic truth of God


3. He came to confirm the promises made unto the fathers


1. He came to the Jews “a minister of the Circumcision”
a. Covenant of Circumcision was given to Abraham and the Jews – Genesis 17:10-14
b. Israel was to be separate from the Gentiles – Deuteronomy 7:1-5
   i. This separation by the law and the covenants created a ‘middle wall of

partition’ – Ephesians 2:14

c. Israel was God’s chosen people – Deuteronomy 7:6
d. Jesus came to His own – these were Jews – John 1:11
e. Jesus was sent only to Israel – Matt 15:24
2. He taught the prophetic truth of God “for the truth of God” – Psalm 119:142

a. Christ came in accordance with God’s plan for the earth


     i. There was a prescribed time for the coming of Christ – Daniel 9:24-27
b. Christ came preaching the message of prophecy to the Jews

i. He taught the law – Psalm 78:1-7 – Matthew 23:2-3

    ii. He taught the kingdom – Isaiah 9:6-7 – Mark 1:14
    iii. He taught the tribulation – Daniel 9:27 – Matt 24:15-21
3. He came to “confirm the promises made unto the fathers”
a. 3 elements of the Promises:
   i. Land promise
   ii. Seed promise – “Great Nation” – Kingdom
   iii. Blessing promise – Channel of Blessing – Law – Messiah
b. Promises made unto the fathers
Abrahamic Promise Genesis 12:1-3


Everlasting Promise Genesis 13:14-15


Land Covenant Genesis 15:5,18-21


Covenants of Promise Genesis 17:2-9


Covenant of Circumcision Genesis 17:10-14


Confirmed to Abraham Genesis 22:15-18


Confirmed to Isaac Genesis 26:1-4

Confirmed to Jacob Genesis 28:12-14

 Without the epistles of Paul and the revelation of the mystery, this is all that we would know about as to why Jesus came as a man.
