This week we hear the song sung by Simeon in the temple after he has come face to face with Jesus. It is often called the “nunc dimitis” and in it - Simeon tells God that he can “go in peace.”  What is the point of this song?  Why is Simeon talking about his death? What is it about the Christ-child that makes him sing this- and what does his song tell us?

Scripture: Malachi 3:1-4; Hebrews 2:14-18; Luke 2:22-40
