53. His Disciples say to him: Is circumcision beneficial to us or not? || He says to them: If it were beneficial, their father would have begotten them circumcised from their mother. But the true spiritual circumcision has become entirely beneficial.

53. Sus discípulos le dicen: ¿Es provechosa para nosotros la circuncisión, o no? || Él les dice: Si fuera provechosa, su padre los habría engendrado circuncisos de su madre. Pero la verdadera circuncisión espiritual se ha hecho totalmente provechosa.
