Wesley's Notes for Luke 1:47


1:47 My spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour - She seems to turn her thoughts here to Christ himself, who was to be born of her, as the angel had told her, he should be the Son of the Highest, whose name should be Jesus, the Saviour. And she rejoiced in hope of salvation through faith in him, which is a blessing common to all true believers, more than in being his mother after the flesh, which was an honour peculiar to her. And certainly she had the same reason to rejoice in God her Saviour hat we have: because he had regarded the low estate of his handmaid, in like manner as he regarded our low estate; and vouchsafed to come and save her and us, when we were reduced to the lowest estate of sin and misery.

Discussion for Luke 1

  • Matt
    Elizabeth and Mary were cousins, meaning their mothers were sisters (and daughters/ descendants of Aaron). Zacharias was a Levitical priest. Mary's father, Heli, was of Judah: a Judahite. Our Lord, Jesus Christ, is of the tribe of Levi and Judah: Lord of Lords (Priest Line/ Levi) and King of Kings (King Line/ Judah).
  • BSP
    In verses 6 and 7 Elizabeth was barren, but this doesn't mean she didn't have God's favor because in verse 6 she is described as righteous. Unfortunate circumstances happen to good people sometimes.
  • MsBsue
    Luke has a remarkable way of telling us the many ways that our God can do amazing and miraculous things. Our faith can only strengthen when we believe in Him.
