When the devout Simeon took the infant Jesus in his arms, he knew that he was seeing the Lord’s salvation for both Israel and the Gentiles. Alistair Begg reminds us that Jesus lived to fulfil the Law so that His righteousness would replace our failure to keep it. Because no one is able to live as they should, Jesus remains the only way to salvation for all people.
21And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
