Shortly after Jesus was born his parents would have made the six mile trip from Bethlehem to Jerusalem to fulfil the Jewish tradition of giving thanks for the birth of their first child. There were probably several families who made such a trip that day, and yet two elderly people of faith singled out this child as one who would do God’s work in a special way. Their words spoke of both joy and suffering, but always of hope.
