Jesus Presented at the Temple

Jesus Presented at the Temple

And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

And when the time came for their purification according to the Law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, “Every male who first opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord”) and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the Law of the Lord, “a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.” Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. Luke 2:21-26 ESV

What does this ceremony reveal about the parents of Jesus?

How does the Holy Spirit reveal things to us?

  • Waiting on God is never a waste of time
Reflect

What has God revealed to you?

Pray for
  • Faithfulness even when tempted to go on “holiday”
  • Unity and harmony of families together at this time
