Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Luke 1:26-38. Place yourself in Mary’s shoes. How would you respond to the angel’s visit and announcement?
  2. Why does the angel call Mary “o favored one”? The root word for “favor” (v. 28, 30) is “grace.” Why is this significant? Why does God choose Mary?
  3. Compare verses 31-33 with Isaiah 9:6-7. What is the significance of this 700 year old prophecy being fulfilled?
  4. Does Mary lack faith in verse 34? Why or why not?
  5. Why is the truth of verse 35 so essential for the Gospel?
  6. How does God expel darkness? What darkness do you face in your life? How will God expel that darkness?  

Memory Verse of the Week:
