People's Bible Notes for Luke 2:28


Lu 2:28 And said. The utterances of Elizabeth, Mary and Simeon are consecutive. Each begins where the other ends. Mary sings her own born Messiah, Zacharias celebrates the triumph of Israel, and Simeon announces the hopes of the Gentiles. But, besides this holding forth the Messiah as a Savior for Gentile as well as Jew, what is remarkable is that he announces in Jesus a suffering Messiah as well as a glorious (Whedon).

    Jesus in my past l got on my knees crying out to thee in a harsh trial. I felt you so strong next to me, l wrote a song ON MY KNEES. I caught a glimpse of you and your white robe. How caring you were with me. I wrote that song of how l felt, when you were there. It later became a Blessing to many homeless and hurting people. I brought in two other strangers God sent me. Helped many. Am BLESSED!!
