Behold, this child is destined

“The child’s father and mother were amazed at what was said about him; and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted—and you your self a sword will pierce—so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.”

Luke 2:39-40
