Luke 2

Birth of christ. Such a strange story, the return to hometown, the line of David, the inn, the swaddling clothes. Such a miserable birth.

The punch line is so often “Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart”.

All these people get signs and wonders indicating that Jesus is the messiah, God’s salvation.

Simeon and Anna. Remarkable gender equality. Both old people.

Mary didn’t really understand when Jesus said he would be in his father’s house. But she treasured it in her heart anyway.
