Infant Jesus at the Temple

Scripture Reference: Luke 2:22-40

Mary and Joseph take their son, Jesus, to the temple. They meet Simeon and Anna who realize Jesus is the chosen One of God.

Question 1: Simeon says the Messiah is for all nations. Would you share that truth with everyone or only those you see as worthy?

Question 2: Simeon and Anna are both able to see who Jesus is, even as a baby. Why do you think they were blessed with this knowledge?

Question 3: What would you have thought and feared if Simeon had spoken about the sword that would pierce your own soul as he said to Mary?
