The Jewish advantage (Rom 3:1)

“Then what advantage

Has the Jew?

Or what is the value

Of circumcision?”

Τί οὖν τὸ περισσὸν τοῦ Ἰουδαίου, ἢ τίς ἡ ὠφέλεια τῆς περιτομῆς;

Paul then asked what advantage (Τί οὖν τὸ περισσὸν) has the Jew (τοῦ Ἰουδαίου)?  What is the value or benefit (ἢ τίς ἡ ὠφέλεια) of circumcision (τῆς περιτομῆς)?  Paul asked these rhetorical questions.  What is the big deal about being a Jew?  Why even have this circumcision?
