<038> Thesis: Why is it that we cannot live with a certain level of ambiguity in the Bible? Introduction: As we come to our time of study this morning, we are faced with a puzzle. The first piece of the puzzle is the question of the content of the text (what did Luke write?). The second piece of the puzzle is the question of what really caused Mary's reaction (what caused Mary to be so agitated?). And the third piece of the puzzle is the question of why Luke put this puzzle before us (upon what did Luke want Theophilus to dwell as he considered this record?). Therefore, we are going to see if we can begin to make a picture come together this morning by attempting to put the pieces of the puzzle together correctly.
