Lessons from Little-Known Women of the Bible: Anna
No gifts. No hype. Well, most of the world. Not me. And there was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years, having lived with her husband seven years from when she was a virgin, and then as a widow until she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day.
Anna the prophetess was also there, a daughter of Phanuel from the tribe of Asher. She was by now a very old woman. She never left the Temple area, worshiping night and day with her fastings and prayers. At the very time Simeon was praying, she showed up, broke into an anthem of praise to God, and talked about the child to all who were waiting expectantly for the freeing of Jerusalem. She lost her husband at a very early age, and she had no children. Much of what we know about Anna is by implication rather than direct knowledge. That she was allowed to occupy one of the temple apartments speaks volumes about her character.
She sees the infant Jesus at the Temple in Jerusalem, with his parents. Anna was one of them. Talking about the age of a person, man or woman, in the New Testament is rare. The reader knows too that the Holy One has actually come. Not only that, but Anna holds him in her arms. Mary and Joseph are there at the Temple because they have brought their newborn son Jesus for the customary ceremony.

Simeon is an old man.
