People of the New Testament World

Proselytes of the Gate were Gentile converts who were not circumcised

Why should you join our group?

You should join our group because you do not have to be circumcised, and you dont have to follow the rules of the Mosaic ceremonial law. All you have to do is abstain from idolatry, blasphemy, bloodshed, uncleanness, the eating of blood, theft and be obedient to the authorities. And also, you get to relax on the Sabbath because you are not aloud to work on that day.

Types of proselytes

A righteous proselyte- gentile who converted to Judaism and is bound by all the doctrines and precepts of the Jewish economy, and are also considered a full member of the Jewish people

A gate proselyte- followed some of the customs and was a "resident alien" who lived in Israel

Exodus 12:48-49

"But if a stranger sojourns with you, and celebrates the Passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near to celebrate it; and he shall be like a native of the land. But no uncircumcised person may eat of it. "The same law shall apply to the native as to the stranger who sojourns among you."
