SCRIPTURE COMMENTARY #7

"He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Most High. . . And And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." (Luke 1:32, 35)

PROOF OF OUR LORD'S DIVINITY taken from the angel's words. Firstly, Gabriel said that Jesus was the "Son of the most High" and the "Son of God." Secondly, he said that Jesus should "save His people from their sins." Now, God alone can redeem from sin; therefore Jesus must be God.
