A Story of Faith, Luke 1:26–38

Considering the Lukan account of the Annunciation from the perspective of Luke as a painter and artist (as is often depicted in medieval art), Eugene LaVerdiere examines the scriptural narrative moment by moment. He delves into the language and theology used in the angel’s greeting and Mary’s response, offering an enlightening and evocative analysis of Luke’s artistic storytelling. Breaking open this stunning act of faith, LaVerdiere offers a poignant meditation on Mary as the icon through whom we come to see the face of God.

“Whether Luke painted the icons with pigments on wood, we do not know. But he surely painted with words in the Gospel, and through it on the canvas of the Christian imagination. In his story of the Annunciation to Mary…Luke had all five qualities come together—historian, theologian, storyteller, person of faith, and artist.”—From the Conclusion
