Simeon’s Song - New-Year’s Eve Sunday (Luke 2:25-35)Tim Douglass, December 31, 2017
Part of the Advent 2017 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Going into a new year is a good rounding off of the Advent theme. While the presentation at the temple in Jerusalem takes place 40 days after Jesus is born, we can bend that enough to discuss it just a week later. Simeon is described as “righteous and devout”, but is not identified beyond that. What he is, is someone who listens to God and trusts in God. He speaks prophetically about Jesus and about God’s plan of salvation and reveals many things that didn’t become clear until much later. His prophesies confirm and reinforce what has already been said about Jesus by the angels.
