The Oft Overlooked Anna and Simeon

At Christmas, we get all caught up with the great story of the star and the shepherds and the inn with now room and the baby born in a barn. We forget about those people who were waiting. The ones who were so desperately waiting for the messiah. We forget how tangible the expectation was for the messiah to come. Anna and Simeon were just two of the people who were waiting.

Listen to their story in the latest installment of Bible Stories for Big Kids.

Anna and Simeon’s lives were changed forever because of their encounter with a Savior who came into our world in the form of a tiny baby. May it be the same for us.
