White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

In the small town of Nazareth, an angel told a humble virgin girl that she would be God’s chosen instrument through whom the deliverer would come. And, though she couldn’t fully comprehend all this would entail, Mary received the Lord’s word and took her place in God’s unfolding plan of redemption. In this episode of White Horse Inn, hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Walter Strickland dive into Mary’s song of praise. They consider how this simple girl became the mother of the mediator, how she responded to the responsibility of caring for the Savior of the world, and what her life means to us.
