John Stott on Simeon's Song

John Stott – The Song of Simeon: A Lesson In Spiritual Discernment – All Soul’s Langham Place - http://www.allsouls.org/ascm/allsouls/static/sermons/showsermon.flow?id=2449

V25 - Simeon’s name and address

Do we have the spiritual discernment that Simeon had, to see beneath the surface of things to Jesus’ real significance?
What do we see in Jesus?

Is 49:6, “a light to the Gentiles that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth”

Simeon saw in Jesus: (1) the fulfilment of promise
(2) the salvation of God
(3) the Light of the World
(4) the cause of division

A stone to stumble over, to be dashed on or a foundation stone
