Two Old Prophets and a Baby

Passage: Luke 2:22-40

When Joseph and Mary present Jesus to the Lord in Jerusalem, they dedicate this child's life to God signifying that the child Jesus will be "holy to the Lord" (Luke 2:23 NRSV).  Gabriel told Mary that her son will be "holy," will be called the "Son of God", because he will be conceived by the Holy Spirit.  In his beginning - an infant in his mother's arms - Jesus is enmeshed in the law of Israel, dedicated fully to his heavenly Father (Luke 2:49).
