Discussion Questions: Luke 1:26-38

Questions For Discussion At Home Or In Gospel Community Groups

  • Compare and contrast the setting of the announcement made to Zechariah and the setting of the announcement made to Mary. What should be noted about Nazareth? What theme does this introduce that will be developed by Luke?
  • Discuss how every phrase in Gabriel’s announcement (vs. 28-33) is rooted in Old Testament promises and prophesies regarding the coming Messiah. Why is this important?  
  •  What was the difference between Zechariah’s question and Mary’s? Why was Zechariah rebuked and punished while Mary was not?
  • According to Gabriel, how would the Son of God become incarnate? See also Baptist Catechism 25. 
  • What can we learn from Mary’s response? How should we emulate her?
