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).

Discussion for Luke 2

  • A disciple
    "And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds." There has never been a problem with news and information getting out among the people, and all Israel knew what was reported about Jesus coming into the world. We too have been told all things by God.
  • A disciple
    "And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." God in His great love and very good purposes has always had in His heart to save man, and to undo what the devil and sin has done to destroy us. Oh that all His works would praise Him!

    To O. Bakre - I like the way you grouped the names together under one subject. Makes researching them easy. The Lord blessed you with that idea.
    Luke 2:52 is what any living soul should pray 4 from God, Jesus (King of Glory himself) grew in Wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man, Samuel in favour with God and man 1 samuel 2:26, Abraham favour, Joseph favour, Moses Favour. all the people that are noteworthy in the Bible are in favour with God and Man. Therefore I pray to Grow in Wisdom,Stature and in Favour with God
  • Isaac jozabad
    just as Jesus increased in love,favor and wisdom every minister of Christ Jesus should increase in love favor and wisdom with God if he is ready to serve God and his people
    verse 51
  • David L Canham
    Luke surely was a man of great knowledge because he know how the people would react to unusual events and that word would be spread very rapidly which would ignite the explosion necessary for God plan to be implemented.
