This Gospel of Luke covers the “Presentation of Jesus in the Temple.” Simeon was promised by God that he would see the Lord before his death. When Mary and Joseph were carrying Jesus into the Temple, Simeon stopped them. He took the Christ Child into his arms and looked up to the heavens thanking God that His promise had been fulfilled.
Anna, the elderly prophetess and widow, was also in the Temple and she began to proclaim the Child Jesus as the deliverance for Jerusalem.
