Day 30 – Luke 2:22-35
Have you ever held a 40 day old baby? If you have, you’ll know that they are tiny, are asleep for most of the day and can’t even hold their heads! At this age, Jesus parents brings him to the temple in Jerusalem and an old man comes up to them crying out that he knows that this tiny, less than 7 weeks old, baby-Jesus will bring salvation to both the Jewish and the Gentile world! Pretty amazing how someone could recognise all of that in Jesus so early on, isn’t it?
