March is #womenshistorymonth and we're celebrating #womeninthebible - Live The Bible Community
The angel said, "Don't be afraid, Mary. God is honoring you."
Luke 1:30 CEB
From the #CEBStudyBible: "Luke compares the announcement to Mary with the announcement to Elizabeth in Luke 1:5-25: same angel, same message, both good news. But the announcement to Mary happens in a village, not in the temple; to a young woman, not to an elderly man; and to an unmarried woman, not to a married man who has been wanting a child for years. Yet Mary believes and becomes Luke's first example of faithful response to good news."
The Live The Bible community is one of encouragement and resources for those who want to make Bible-reading a part of their lives and encourage their spirits, we read from the Common English Bible (CEB) translation.
