I had never quite heard the Simeon story quite this way before. It's a perfect a message for the Sunday after Christmas - a sort of "rest of the story". The baby Jesus is brought to the temple 8 days after his birth and when Simeon sees the child he has a vision of what will be. He prays aloud, "I have seen your salvation which you have prepared for all people. He is a light to reveal God to the nations and he is the glory of your people Isreal!" Luke 2:30-32.
