Bible Notes

Luke 2:36-38 (28.12.18)

Luke 2:36-38 NIVUK
36 There was also a prophet, Anna, the daughter of Penuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, 37 and then was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshipped night and day, fasting and praying. 38 Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.

Simeon recognised that Jesus in himself is our salvation. Anna recognised that having found him, she had to share him with others.

Father, help me not to be jealous in my relationship with Jesus, keeping him to myself, but to freely tell others!
