Elder Ronald gives a sermon on the connection between Christ and the law found in Luke 2:21-39 where Mary and Joseph carried the forty day old child Jesus to the temple, following the custom of the law.  He provides a description of the law’s purpose and examines several specific laws and their symbolism, pointing to the arrival of Jesus Christ.  Jesus followed this law to perfection, accomplishing what no man could.  The apostle Paul then gives a new testament look at the law in Galatians and what our understanding of it should be after Jesus’s finished work.  Elder Ronald concludes with the picture of Simeon being lead by the Spirit, the creation holding the creator, and the rejoicing, praising and adorning that took place.
