Luke 1:67-79

Although Zechariah's song has not typically received as much attention as that of Mary, it is theologically more developed. Both are equally inspired, so it is not a matter of one being "better" than the other. The simplicity and personal focus of Mary's psalm is part of its beauty and underscores the truths it proclaims. The breadth and depth of Zechariah's psalm enlarge our understanding of God's work of salvation, especially as it relates to us as his people.
