June 18, Luke 1:39-56 Elizabeth knows, but how? And Mary sings
We the readers know that Mary is pregnant, or at least soon will be but how does Elizabeth know? The text says that she was filled with the Holy Spirit, perhaps He revealed this. But what about the people around them, didn't this greeting seem strange to anyone else? Another curiosity I find in the scripture. I understand that all of the bible is true but it does not contain all truths. So perhaps Elizabeth was also visited by an angel which was not recorded. And Mary's song, of how God has blessed her and the people of Israel. How all generations will remember Mary. Consider the number of people recorded through history, who is remembered the longest, those who accomplish great things or those who are simply obedient to God?
