    According to the explained Covenantal Theology of the New Testament, the practice of circumcision, isn't from the Abraamic Covenant

    So,
    Galatians 2:3-5
    Galatians 2:21
    [The law cannot bring righteousness
    Galatians 3:6-7
    [Abraam equated with faith, not law
    Galatians 3:8
    [The nations, context
    Galatians 3:9
    [Faith equated with Abraam
    Galatians 3:10
    [The law is a curse
    Galatians 3:14
    [Abraam》》Jesus Christ, (same Covenant

    Galatians 3:17
    [The law was given after the Covenant with Abraam

    (Contextually,
    the practice of circumcision, being used as a 'basic example', of an added law, added after the Covenant with Abraam.

    Galatians 3:19
    [The law was "added" because of transgressions
    Galatians 3:22
    Galatians 3:28



    The New Testament is clearly associating the practice of circumcision, with the added laws, (this means priests , and clearly isn't associating the practice of circumcision, with the Abraamic Covenant.
    In fact, the New Testament is differentiating the Abraamic Covenant, from the [added laws, called a curse, by using the example of the practice of circumcision, (it's an obvious difference, though obviously other added laws aren't associated with the Abraamic Covenant , either.

    I would consider this an added law that going by reference, or inference, was practiced by some. As is read in the new testament, this doesn't seem like the practice was ever considered in the same manner, so, it's something that wouldn't be inherent in the texts. The idea of different meanings is also referenced in Deuteronomy, hence some considered this literal, others wouldn't have.

    Nope...Due to the deification of Jesus atheists don't believe in the existence of Jesus much less the historical one.
