ختان يسوع الطفل وتقديمه للهيكل
انجيل القديس لوقا02/من21حتى39/ ولما تمت ثمانية ايام ليختنوا الصبي سمي يسوع كما تسمى من الملاك قبل ان حبل به في البطن. ولما تمت ايام تطهيرها حسب شريعة موسى صعدوا به الى اورشليم ليقدموه للرب كما هو مكتوب في ناموس الرب: ان كل ذكر فاتح رحم يدعى قدوسا للرب. ولكي يقدموا ذبيحة كما قيل في ناموس الرب زوج يمام او فرخي حمام. وكان رجل في اورشليم اسمه سمعان كان بارا تقيا ينتظر تعزية اسرائيل والروح القدس كان عليه. وكان قد اوحي اليه بالروح القدس انه لا يرى الموت قبل ان يرى مسيح الرب. فاتى بالروح الى الهيكل. وعندما دخل بالصبي يسوع ابواه ليصنعا له حسب عادة الناموس اخذه على ذراعيه وبارك الله وقال: «الان تطلق عبدك يا سيد حسب قولك بسلام لان عيني قد ابصرتا خلاصك الذي اعددته قدام وجه جميع الشعوب. نور اعلان للامم ومجدا لشعبك اسرائيل». وكان يوسف وامه يتعجبان مما قيل فيه. وباركهما سمعان وقال لمريم امه: «ها ان هذا قد وضع لسقوط وقيام كثيرين في اسرائيل ولعلامة تقاوم. وانت ايضا يجوز في نفسك سيف لتعلن افكار من قلوب كثيرة».وكانت نبية حنة بنت فنوئيل من سبط اشير وهي متقدمة في ايام كثيرة قد عاشت مع زوج سبع سنين بعد بكوريتها. وهي ارملة نحو اربع وثمانين سنة لا تفارق الهيكل عابدة باصوام وطلبات ليلا ونهارا. فهي في تلك الساعة وقفت تسبح الرب وتكلمت عنه مع جميع المنتظرين فداء في اورشليم. ولما اكملوا كل شيء حسب ناموس الرب رجعوا الى الجليل الى مدينتهم الناصرة. وكان الصبي ينمو ويتقوى بالروح ممتلئا حكمة وكانت نعمة الله عليه.

 

Baby Jesus is circumcised and Presented To The Temple
Luke 02/21-39/ And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb. And when the time came for their purification according to the Law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, “Every male who first opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord”) and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the Law of the Lord, “a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.” Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the Law, he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said, “Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.”and his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him. And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is opposed (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also), so that thoughts from many hearts may be revealed.” And there was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years, having lived with her husband seven years from when she was a virgin, and then as a widow until she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day. And coming up at that very hour she began to give thanks to God and to speak of him to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.
