Presentation of Christ in the Temple

Passage:Luke 2:22-40

Preacher: Ben Phillips

This sermon from last week focuses on a notable event in the life of Jesus, when his parents brought him to the Temple in Jerusalem to be presented. Doing so was prescribed by the Law, and Mary & Joseph's faithful act has great significance for us even now. This event was foretold by the prophet Malachi, and was marked by the wise and sage Simeon and prophetess Anna. In this sermon we explore the rich significance of this often overlooked event in Jesus' life.
