From John Wesley’s personal notes on the Bible


John Wesley

“Simeon blessed them – Joseph and Mary. This child is set for the fall and rising again of many – That is, he will be a savour of death to some, to unbelievers: a savour of life to others, to believers: and for a sign which shall be spoken against – A sign from God, yet rejected of men: but the time for declaring this at large was not yet come: that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed – The event will be, that by means of that contradiction, the inmost thoughts of many, whether good or bad, will be made manifest.”
