The Consolation of Israel

Long before the bishops of Rome, the kings of Europe, or the prosperity preachers of America adapted the story of Jesus to serve their purposes, there was a man named Simeon who truly understood what Jesus’ coming was all about. If we want to understand the true significance of Jesus’ birth, then we have to understand the anticipation that was felt by the people of Israel, and especially people like Simeon.
