Who was the prophetess that spoke about Jesus when Mary and Joseph brought Him to the temple for His purification rights?
That’s right! In Luke 2:36-38, we see the prophetess Anna praising the Lord for the birth of Jesus.
Read that part of the Christmas story in Luke 2:36-38.
More commentary about this passage from The NKJV Study Bible:
“The testimony of this pious woman complements Simeon’s testimony. Both men and women observed God’s work early in Jesus’ life. Anna’s work as a prophetess in the temple court suggests that she addressed all who would listen to her, as did Miriam, Deborah, and Hulda. Philip’s daughters are another example of prophetesses in the NT.
