Saving Christmas - Simeon and Anna


Digging Deeper

Luke 2:22-40

1) Read Luke 2:25-35 Think about Simeon’s emotions when he saw Jesus. Have you had similar experiences?

2) Read Luke 2:33 Why do you think Mary and Joseph were “amazed” (some translations say marveled) at what Simeon was saying?

3) In Luke 2:38, as soon as Anna saw Jesus, what are two things she does immediately in response? How is this similar to the shepherds’ response in Luke 2:17-20?

Going Further:

Read Luke 2. Looking back at the previous weeks, what can we learn from the lives of the people involved in the Christmas Narrative, that we can apply to our own families? How has seeing the story from different perspectives shaped how you will go into the new year?
