Mary

Part 3: Mary’s Song (v46-50)

46 And Mary said:
“My soul glorifies the Lord
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour,
48 for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation.
(Luke 2:46-50)

In response to being greeted by Elizabeth, Mary breaks out in spontaneous song! A song seemingly of renewal, revolution and reformation. Mary proclaims that God is on the march and God is going to do something new! Some scholars believe Mary is looking back on all the stories she has heard about how God has dealt with people in the past. Others think that she is being prophetic and only looking ahead to what God will do. I personally think it is both.

In the Podcast today, we discover that in response to Elizabeth’s greeting, Mary responds in a spontaneous song, that we call the Magnficat! We look at Luke 2:46-50 today and Luke 2:51-56 tomorrow. Listen to or download the mp3 to hear more about this most extraordinary yet ordinary woman and the majestic song of worship to, and about, her God.
