THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 2 - Verse 36

Verse 36. Of the tribe of Aser. The tribe of Aser, or Asher, dwelt in the northern part of the land of Canaan. Why Anna was called a prophetess is not known. It might be because she had been the wife of a prophet, or because she was employed in celebrating the praises of God (comp. 1 Ch 25:1,2,4; 1 Sa 10:5) , or because she herself foretold future events, being inspired.
