Luke tells us about another person who meets Mary, Joseph, and Jesus in the Temple when Jesus was about 40 days old - an aged widow named Anna. She too was righteous and waiting for God to redeem Jerusalem just as the Scriptures had spoken. Anna was a regular attender of the public and private Temple services, and is presented as yet another picture of the remnant of Israel who were waiting for the fulfillment of God's promises to the nation.
