Luke continues masterfully unfolding the identity of Jesus by introducing two witnesses, Simeon and Anna, who testify that Jesus is the long-awaited Messiah, fulfilling the Jewish Law requiring testimony of two witnesses. Sometimes waiting for God to act in the midst of painful circumstances, unanswered prayers, or unfulfilled expectations is so hard. Simeon and Anna were longing for Messiah to come redeem their hurting people. We’ll join in their celebration, learn from their lives, and explore their prophecies defining Jesus’ mission.
