Song of Simeon: A Light to the Gentiles

 

Summary:

Our first session tonight briefly introduced the Book of Revelation and explored a hymn of praise used in the Week I Thursday Evening Office created from Rev 11:17-18 and Rev 12:10-12.  We highlighted the conflict with the power of the State and Gnosticism, discuss the return of Jesus and the resurrection of the dead, the reward or the Saints, and asked if we love God with parts of our lives like these martyrs loved God with all of their lives.

Our second session explored the Nunc Dimittis or the Song of Simeon in Luke 2:29-32.  We presented the background and the "Consolation of Israel" Simeon was awaiting, the dramatic change in scope from the previous canticles in Luke to include salvation for all people, and the need for us to present the same light to the nations.

After that, we turned off the cameras and prayed the Week I Thursday Evening Office together.
