The word epiphany has a number of different meanings that are closely related. It can mean a manifestation, an appearance, a shining light. And that’s exactly what Simeon saw as he held the Promised Messiah in his arms. Simeon had been promised by God that he wouldn’t die until he laid eyes on the Christ – and on that day Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the temple, that promise was fulfilled. The Light of the World had been born!
Our Bible story is from Luke 2:22-33. It tells of the purification of Jesus in the temple, and Simeon’s words of praise as he blesses Jesus.
“Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word;”Luke 2:29
The Epiphany Season
The prophet Isaiah in his foretelling of Jesus’ birth said, ““Arise, shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you” (Isaiah 60:1). Jesus’ coming brought light into the world, and the Epiphany season proclaims the glory and brightness of His birth as the Law was fulfilled and our salvation entered the world. This season truly is a wonderful time to celebrate Jesus’ very own words: “I am the Light of the world!”
