I always used to skip over the genealogy of Jesus in Matthew, but after I began studying about some of the names listed there, I now read that list more slowly and with much more meditated thought as I come to each name. It is surprising when you truly grasp the reality of some of those names and what they were known for and yet, they were a part of the line of Jesus. Incredible!
– In Luke 2 vs. 38 it tells us the Prophetess Anna spoke them about the child, (Jesus) to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem. Anna never left the temple so she must have been speaking there. I would love to know what all she told them about Jesus. We are not told, at least not in this passage. To back in time and be a fly on the wall that would be, I think, an interesting thing.
What do you suppose Anna shared with the people? A thought to chew on for the day.
Until next time – be encouraged
