The remnant of Israel in Judea in the days of Miriam (Mary) and Elisheva (Elizabeth) is a small, but faithful community. There is expectancy. The “God of my salvation” is about to do something, as Micah had hoped and prayer (Micah 7:7).
Reflecting on Scot McKnight’s The King Jesus Gospel and the new English translation of the gospels (The Delitzsch Hebrew English Version), I reflect on the way Luke’s gentile gospel makes much of the story of Israel as essential to the gospel. Mary’s Psalm is an example of the way the apostles saw Israel’s story and Yeshua’s story connecting.
