Simeon – Anna – Joseph

Prior to Jesus’ birth, some Jews were patiently and confidently waiting for the promised Christ. They had an image of what they thought He ought to be like, but He turned out to be quite different from what they expected. He turned out to be a Savior of of souls rather than a Protector of national boundaries. He turned out to be a humble servant, and not of a leader of troops. Therefore, most of His people saw no purpose for Him in their nation.
And yet there were 3 people who waited in hope—looking for a bright new day—when God would send His Anointed.
