I love this older version.
It is so sensitive....
Have you ever thought how old Mary was when the Angel visited her?
It is supposed she was between 12-14years...very young indeed.
Young to have not been afraid when the Angel visited her.
Young to be brave enough to risk a stoning for expecting a child when not married.
Young to have such a complete faith in God.
Young to stand firm in that faith.
In Mary's own Words she confesses:
"My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit rejoices
In God My Saviour."Luke Chap 1 Verse 46.
Only a sinner needs a savour, yet here we read Mary confesses to her own imperfection.
What a wonderful young woman.
No wonder God chose her, as the mother of Jesus.
As a nurse I know a child mainly has the same blood grouping of its father.
The blood in Jesus, came from the Father.
