And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Last evening I was listening to "A Pentatonix Christmas Special." I was pleased to discover that the program consisted largely of traditional Christmas music, carols and hymns. Beautiful presentation.
I paid particular attention to "Mary, Did You Know?" something I have perhaps never really done before.
To these lines I think perhaps Mary would have to answer, "No, I did not know that my child would do those things. But I did know who He is."Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know
The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb.
Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
"Yes" Mary would reply, "I did specifically know that this Jesus is the Lord of all creation, I do know that He will rule the nations, for Gabriel told me so." And we know this because Luke tells us so in the passage quoted above!
