The Jesus Passages: Luke 2:25-32

Passage #16

Passion for the Right Stuff

~ Luke 2:25-32

 25Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Christ. 27Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, 28Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:  29"Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace.  30For my eyes have seen your salvation,  31which you have prepared in the sight of all people,  32a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel."
