When examining any biblical text, it is important to ask the most essential questions: What does it mean? Why does it say what it says? and How would the original hearers have understood it? Alistair Begg answers these questions as he examines Gabriel’s proclamation to Mary concerning Jesus. Tracing Israel’s story, he unpacks the historical, theological, and personal significance of this announcement of the coming King to whom we all must submit.
32He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, 33and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”
