In the dust of the Rabbi- Day 6


Title: The song of Mary


Scriptures to Read: Luke 1:46-56


Commentary:


Mary’s worship came from her knowledge of the Word of God

Mary’s song of praise shows her faith, as well as her knowledge of Scripture. Notice that she references scriptures richly in her song. She pulled her worship from the
Word.


Mary was a sinner who needed a saviour

Luke 1:47, “and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour.” What kind of people need a Saviour? Sinners do, showing that Mary considered herself a sinner.


Highlights from Mary’s song

• In Luke 1:51-53, Mary praises God for what He has done.
• Notice that she recognizes that generations and generations will have His mercy. She sees the long reaching historical impact of the Saviour.
• In Luke 1:54, she connects her Son with the fulfilment of the covenants to Israel.
• In Luke 1:55, she rejoices that her Son will fulfil the Abrahamic Covenant.
