SINGING SALVATION

December 18, 2018

GREG TAYLOR

Greg Taylor explores two songs from Luke 1, one called "Mary's Magnificat," and the other "Zechariah's Canticle." The congregation follows the sermon with singing ZOE's version of Mary's Magnificat. As N.T. Wright says, Mary’s Magnificat is “the gospel before the gospel, a fierce bright shout of triumph thirty weeks before Bethlehem, thirty years before Calvary and Easter. It goes with a swing and a clap and a stamp. It’s all about God, and it’s all about revolution. And it’s all because of Jesus – Jesus who’s only just been conceived, not yet born, but who has made Elizabeth’s baby leap for joy in her womb and has made Mary giddy with excitement and hope and triumph.” (Tom Wright, Luke for Everyone)
