Happy New Year's Day - The Day Jesus was Named!

"It might be the first day of the new year but did you know that the most important thing about today is that it's the 8th day of Christmas and the day that Jesus was circumcised and given His name! Cool, huh!?"

"On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise him, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he had been conceived." (Luke 2:21)

P.S. The painting is courtesy of wikipedia and it is by Parmigianino (1503 - 1540) and it is now located in the Detroit Institute of Art.
