“”For my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples: a light, for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.”
Once again salvation is said to be embodied in Jesus. Salvation here is again identified with light. As the light is also a revelation, we can probably understand the light of salvation as a revealing light which brings understanding of things which were previously dark and hard to perceive. The salvation will be a glory for Israel. However, unlike Zechariah’s prophesy in Luke 1, Simeon makes it clear that this salvation will be for all people, including the Gentiles.
