Reading along with us in Luke? Here’s today’s reading:

Luke 2 (ESV)

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn....Continue Reading

And now the child comes and the revelation is given that this is the ONE. Imagine what that meant to Simeon…God showing His faithfulness to a faithful man willing to trust and wait! And then this twelve year old wows the teachers of the law with his questions and his insights. What a divinely special boy He is!
