Wesley's Notes for Luke 1:28


1:28 Hail, thou highly favoured; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women - Hail is the salutation used by our Lord to the women after his resurrection: thou art highly favoured, or hast found favour with God, #Lu 1:30|, is no more than was said of Noah, Moses, and David. The Lord is with thee, was said to Gideon, #Jud 6:12|; and blessed shall she be above women, of Jael, #Jud 5:24|. This salutation gives no room for any pretence of paying adoration to the virgin; as having no appearance of a prayer, or of worship offered to her.


Discussion for Luke 1

    Praise The Lord Jesus.
  • Maggie Bazaar for verse 37
    The world will pass away but his word will remain and rain come to water the earth and plants sprouts so does his word will not return void .so indeed nothing is impossible with God
  • Joan Minja for verse 45
    God speaks to us through his Word, and for us to see the manifestations of his word in our daily life, we have to believe. Faith can move mountains and it is profound to us as believers!....as there shall be a performance of those things, only of we believe! Jesus is Lord!!!
  • Cynnee
    When we sometimes worry about our lives we should remember that with God all things are possible.
  • This is a very powerful verse. Note that due to a lack of faith in God, Zacharias was made deaf and dumb, in order that the good plans God had for him be fulfilled. God uses even what may seem like trials and tribulations, for the fulfilment of his plans. Which are always for our own good.
  • Jack
    You need to read with understanding,2 cor.5-16,this was good for israel, this is who Luke is talking talking to check it. But not today believer--1 cor 15-1:4,then romans 15:25-26,2peter 3:15-16, ITS Paul's gospel we need-romans 15:4.
