Bible Commentary for Luke 1:30

Wesley's Notes for Luke 1:30


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.

1:32 He shall be called the Son of the Highest - In this respect also: and that in a more eminent sense than any, either man or angel, can be called so. The Lord shall give him the throne of his father David - That is, the spiritual kingdom, of which David's was a type.
