Thesis:The Master Plan is to bring Peace to Israel.

Introduction:In our studies of the introduction to Simeon's prophetic utterances, we have seen that the "Big Picture" has to do with resolving the problem between the Creator and the creation. That "problem" was created by both the creature's rebellion against the Creator's objective and methods and the Creator's "just" response. The "uncleanness" issue and the "purification" rites addressed this. The "presentation" of the firstborn son as an agent of the Task addressed this. Even the nature of the sacrificial birds as both burnt offering and sin offering addressed this.

Now, in our study this morning, we are going to see that the same theme absolutely dominates Luke's presentation. As we "plug the details into the larger picture", we are compelled by the terminology to see what the "Issue" is: the methodological focus upon "Peace" as a key factor in the Master Plan.
