Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Luke 2:27-28.


Luke 2:28

_ _ took him up in his arms — immediately recognizing in the child, with unhesitating certainty, the promised Messiah, without needing Mary to inform him of what had happened to her. [Olshausen]. The remarkable act of taking the babe in his arms must not be overlooked. It was as if he said, “This is all my salvation and all my desire” (2 Samuel 23:5).
