Mary, Joseph, Anna and Simeon – A Study

The sermon this study is based on can be found at: Are you looking forward?

  1. Read through the passage as a whole and as a group make a note of:
    • all the things that relate back to the Old Testament [OT] (hint – such things as why were Mary and Joseph there; what were Simeon and Anna expecting etc. etc. ) check out OT passages to give background;
    • what is there by way of praise;
    • what are the prophecies and have they been fulfilled;
    • what similarities are there between Simeon and Anna?
  2. What can we learn from the key players in this passage in respect of our lives today?
