Summary:  Anna was a widow for 84-years and her deepest love became was not found in earthly things like a husband, food, or possessions, but in God. She never leaves the Temple area and she prays and fasts night and day. She too experiences the “fullness of time” and recognizes the Messiah, Jesus.  She is a obedient Jew and her love and devotion is placed in God. She is given the opportunity to be a spokesperson for God, pointing to the long awaited Messiah, to those who are looking for “the redemption of Israel.”
