Luke 2:21-24 – Presenting the Baby to God

LK2:21 Now when eight days[1] had passed it was time for the infant to be circumcised and then to be named “Jesus” just as the angel had stated before he was even conceived in the womb. LK2:22 So when the period of their purification[2] [Leviticus 12:2] was completed according to the Law of Moses, they brought him to Jerusalem to present him to the LORD,[3] LK2:23 just as it has been written in YHWH’s law:[4] “Every male opening the womb will be called holy to the LORD.” [Exodus 13:2, 12,15] LK2:24 And so they offered a sacrifice according to what the Law of YHWH[5] states: “A pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.”[6] [Leviticus 12:8]


[1] Eight days: The time when a baby’s blood coagulation is at its highest during life time.

[2] The period of their purification: Seven days. [Leviticus 12:2]

[3] The Lord: TO KYRIO.

[4] YHWH’s law: a Hebraism. [Exodus 13:9; 2 Chronicles 17:9; 34:14]

[5] The Law of YHWH: A Hebraism occurring first at 2 Kings 10:31. [Psalm 1:2; 19:7; 119:1]

[6] Pigeons: Indicating the family was poor

  • Question: If His Name Was Yeshua, Why Call Him Jesus? (spyghana.com)
    Some people claim that our Lord should not be referred to as “Jesus.” Instead, we should only use the name “Yeshua.” Some even go so far as to say that calling Him “Jesus” is blasphemous. Others go into great detail about how the name “Jesus” is unbiblical because the letterJis a modern invention and there was no letterJin Greek or Hebrew.Yeshuais the Hebrew name, and its English spelling is “Joshua.”Iesousis the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew name, and its English spelling is “Jesus.” Thus, the names “Joshua” and “Jesus” are essentially the same; both are English pronunciations of the Hebrew and Greek names for our Lord. (For examples of how the two names are interchangeable, seeActs 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8 in the KJV. In both cases, the wordJesusrefers to the Old Testament character Joshua.) Changing the language of a word does not affect the meaning of the word
    +
    If a person speaks and reads English, it is acceptable for him to spell things in an English fashion. Spellings can change even within a language: Americans write “Savior,” while the British write “Saviour.” The addition of au(or its subtraction, depending on your point of view) has nothing to do with whom we’re talking about. Jesus is the Savior, and He is the Saviour.JesusandYeshuahandIesusare all referring to the same Person.
  • Is the Name “Jesus” Anti-Semitic? (greenbaggins.wordpress.com)
    It has been argued by some people in the HRM that the English name “Jesus” is Anti-Semitic. I intend to show that this is false. It is not inherently any more Anti-Semitic than the name would be translated into any other language on the face of the earth. To illustrate the point, I will use a word completely on the opposite end of the spectrum of attractiveness: “nigger.” Some people, for instance, would probably call me racist even for bringing up this word. However, what if I used the word this way: “Anyone who uses the term ‘nigger’ today to describe an African-American is a racist.” I’m using the word, yes, but how am I using it? I am using the term to encourage people not to call African-Americans by that term, which they tend to find offensive. The word is not the same thing as how it is used, and it does not inherently convey a clear meaning all by itself. The word could be used in a racist way by one person and in a non-racist way by someone else.

    The most difficult challenge we face is that doing our best, is not always enough. Learning to accept that is an uphill battle for us all.
  • The Peace of the Lord – Sermon for December 29, 2013 (pastorrichert.wordpress.com)
    As with so much of our Lord’s Word, the world around us cannot understand true peace – and as our Lord’s children, we must be vigilant so that we do not allow a false understanding of true peace twist our Lord’s promise.  Peace according to the world is nothing more than the absence of anything troubling or agitating.  But peace as the absence of bad things is no true peace, for there will always be more bad things threatening to wrench this so-called peace away from us.  The world’s peace is fraught with uncertainty.  True peace, the peace that the angels announced on that first Christmas, is the Hebrew word shalom, and it means much more than the simple absence of strife or conflict.  Shalom, true peace, includes the presence of everything that our Lord would give to us.  It is the establishment of the life that our Lord would have us live.

  • The Living Word (xntricproductions.wordpress.com)
    Just as YHWH has again drawn close to us and enabled us to have relationship and communication with him. YHWH has also placed his law and his Holy Spirit inside us and cleansed us with the blood of his son Yeshua. YHWH has made a way for us in all things. We should be honored to honor him. Now if we make a mistake we have forgiveness through Yeshua. Yet God’s grace should not be an excuse for us to sin or live according to our own rules and desires.
    +
    Yeshua’s one time sacrifice enables us to be washed clean of our sins and forgiven when we make mistakes. We are no longer under the bondage of sin and subject to the wages of sin that are death.
    We, all of us, through Yeshua have the ability upon accepting him as our savior to be forgiven for our sins and have a restored relationship with YHWH (God). Yeshua is now our high priest and our prayers and offerings go to God through Yeshua. We have also been given the Holy Spirit so that we do not have to try to understand and obey God on our own power. Instead the Holy Spirit of God lives within us, strengthening us, directing us, guiding us, leading us to live an obedient life with YHWH (God).
  • It is strange that in the tile of The LORD Sits #ThroneOfGod #YHWH #Jesus #TheLORDsits (mrpatvincent.com) appears next to God His name, the more common Anglicised name of Jeshua. Though Jesus Christ is not YHWH, the Adonai Elohim Hashem Jehovah, but is the Creator His son. Jesus is not sitting on His Throne, but at the right hand of God Who is The Absolute Power, and without Jesus could do nothing. though the writer of the article herself writes: “He is the Power of the Power. There is none above and all below.” but than is confused between the two entities, on the one hand the eternal Spirit God and on the other hand the man of flesh and blood who really died, while God can not die.
  • A Voice in the Wasteland: “What would you name Jesus – G-Zus?” (thejaggedword.com)
    On January 1st many Christians celebrate the circumcision and naming of Jesus as recorded in Luke 2:21.  It rings ironic to celebrate such a transgression on someone’s individual rights; naming said individual and taking a knife to his genitalia. But as my friend, the Rev. Koch said, “The church can be a dangerous place.”
  • Though many don’t value pigeons, doves are important in the Holy Bible. (rockdoveblog.wordpress.com)
    The rock dove (a/k/a pigeon) is perhaps the most underappreciated yet ubiquitous birds of the world.  Yet God the Holy Spirit descended upon the Lord Jesus Christ “like a dove” (Matthew 3:16-17) at the Lord’s baptism, and examples of the dove family were used as sacrificial offerings in Mary’s purification ceremony,  after Christ’s circumcision (Luke 2:22-24, following Leviticus 12:8).

    it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.
