comment Circumcision “reversal” in 1 Corinthians
@Tau, Gal 2 says nothing about Peter being uncirc. It says that he lived like a gentile until men from James came. He feared the party of the circumcision. In Acts, we see that the party of circumcision was a group that argued gentiles must be circumcised to be Christians. Paul and Peter both argued against this. Paul had Timothy circumcised because T's mother was Jewish. However, he refused to let Titus be circumcised because Titus was gentile on both sides. Clearly, Paul uses circumcised to mean the operation at times. We can't blanket say it always means living by the law.

comment Circumcision “reversal” in 1 Corinthians
We must be careful applying modern meanings onto ancient ways. Just because a "true" uncircumcision was not possible until the 20th century does not mean that the epispasm procedure would not be considered uncircumcision back then. One reason it was practiced was because of Greek gymnasiums. In them, the workout areas were clothing free. Anyone could tell circumcision with a glance by the absence of skin. If there was skin, you'd have to get closer to determine if the skin was original or from an epispasm.
