Anna was a prophet, the daughter of Penuel and a descendant of the tribe of Asher. After being married seven years, her husband died. She spent the rest of her days at the temple worshipping night and day, praising God and fasting. When Jesus’ parents brought him to the temple to be consecrated, she approached them, giving thanks to God and proclaiming that he was the one who would bring redemption to Jerusalem. 84 years old, Anna is one of two women whose age was given in Scripture.(Luke 2)
