Jesus and Simeon

The Holy Spirit revealed to a man named Simeon that he would not die until he had seen the Christ, the Messiah of prophecy, “So he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, he took Him up in his arms and blessed God…” (Luke 2:27-28).
Imagine you are one of the parents of Jesus and this happens! What would you think? Before this both of you had visits from an angel. Elizabeth revealed the nature of the child. Now this!
No child had ever been brought into the world this way!
