Is it possible to be neutral about Christ? Simeon didn’t think so: he prophesied that Jesus would be “a sign to be opposed.” Alistair Begg explains that Simeon’s prophesy meant that Jesus would divide all who know Him into those who follow Him and those who reject Him. Christ’s words about Himself make it impossible to describe Him as only a gentle messenger of peace. Instead, He declares Himself to be Lord of all.
33And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him.
