Morning 7 – Luke 2:40-52

Pray, Read, Pray, Reflect…

Good morning, here are today’s reflection questions.

  1. What additional insight do verses 41-2 reveal about Jesus’ home (cf. Ex. 13:3-10) and his parents’ attitude toward G-d (cf. v. 39)?
  2. Verse 24 reveals their economics situation (cf. Lev. 12:8)?
  3. Review the birth, parentage, etc. of Jesus to the other Gospels. What are the differences and similarities?
  4. Simeon
    1. his character…
    2. why was he at the Temple (v.27)?
    3. how does he view Infant Jesus?
    4. how does he have insight?
    5. what is his prophecy about Jesus and Mary?
  5. Remember Zechariah (cf. vv.31-2 w/ 1:77)?
    1. in what way does Simeon have revelation beyond that given to Zechariah?
  6. Anna
    1. who was she?
    2. what is her evaluation and response to the child?
  7. In a society dominated by traditions and pagan rulers, what is significance about those described within? Why give these stories here?
  8. Compare this to church and national life today.
    1. can you characterize yourself as righteous and devout? On what basis.
    2. how would you respond to any of these callings?

Reflect, Pray, and Give Praise
