Working Within the System (Luke 2:22-24)

And when the days of their purification according to the law of Moses were finished, [Joseph and Mary] brought [Jesus] up to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord (just as it is written in the law of the Lord: “Every firstborn male will be dedicated to the Lord”) and to offer a sacrifice (according to what is stated in the law of the Lord: “a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons”).  (Luke 2:22-24)

Of all the people in history, Joseph and Mary could have made the best case that the rules didn’t apply to them.

“Our baby is special; he doesn’t need to go through the system like everyone else does, and neither do we,” they could have said.

But they didn’t.
