Mary’s View of God
Luke 1:25-33
26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by
God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,
27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph,
of the house of David. The virgin's name was Mary.
28 And having come in, the angel said to her, "Rejoice,
highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you
among women!"
29 But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying,
and considered what manner of greeting this was.
30 Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for
you have found favor with God.
31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring
forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.
32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the
Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His
father David.
33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of
His kingdom there will be no end.”
