The Announcement to Mary

Luke 1:26-38

Pastor Doug Helms

  1. Despite the supernatural nature of the account, why might the announcement to Mary of the Savior’s birth not come as a surprise?

  2. What is the significance of the angel Gabriel making his announcement in a town in Galilee?

  3. Why do you think God chose Mary to carry the Son of God? Why would He not choose someone of higher social standing? Why not a princess?

  4. Is there any indication in our text that Mary would be a repository of grace for those in need? How do we know that Mary was herself, a recipient of God’s grace?

  5. What is the significance of the name “Jesus”?

  6. What in our text indicates that Jesus was more than just a man? More than a great man?

  7. What are some things that come out of this announcement that give you hope in the face of life’s difficulties?
