People's Bible Notes for Luke 1:46

Lu 1:46-55 Mary said. Mary also is filled with the spirit of prophecy. These two godly women are the first human prophets of the New Testament. Mary's language is in part drawn from the Psalms. This hymn is divisible into three parts: (1) recognition of God's strange grace upon her own humble person and character (Lu 1:46-49); (2) a recognition that it is ever thus that God exalts the humble, and brings low the proud (Lu 1:50-53); (3) the result is that humble Israel is now to be exalted according to God's promise to Abraham (Lu 1:54,55).

Buddy Green's comment on 2014-06-03 14:39:33:

Mary 's gift to Christianity is her unique relationship with Jesus Christ. Each christian has a valid relationship but no other christian has such a unique relationship. Only the first Christian, Mary, could give birth to her own savior and nurture her savior into adulthood to save the rest of us. That 's what Mary is telling us. That 's why catholic and orthodox christians venerate Mary. Its the unique relationship that is venerated.
