Simeon and Anna in Temple
The stock image depicts an iconic scene from the New Testament in the Bible, showing Simeon and Anna in the Temple. Simeon, a devout and righteous man, had been promised by the Holy Spirit that he would not die until he had seen the Messiah.
As Mary and Joseph brought Jesus into the Temple, Simeon was moved by the Spirit to go to them and take the baby in his arms, proclaiming that he had seen the promised Messiah.
Anna, an elderly prophetess who spent much of her time in the Temple, also witnessed the encounter and praised God, spreading the news of the baby’s arrival to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.
