Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 2:36

_ _ Anna — or, Hannah.

_ _ a prophetess — another evidence that “the last times” in which God was to “pour out His Spirit upon all flesh” were at hand.

_ _ of the tribe of Aser — one of the ten tribes, of whom many were not carried captive, and not a few reunited themselves to Judah after the return from Babylon. The distinction of tribes, though practically destroyed by the captivity, was well enough known up to their final dispersion (Romans 11:1; Hebrews 7:14); nor is it now entirely lost.

_ _ lived, etc. — she had lived seven years with her husband (Luke 2:36), and been a widow eighty-four years; so that if she married at the earliest marriageable age, twelve years, she could not at this time be less than a hundred three years old.
