Peter Leithart, Jeff Meyers, and I continue our series in Luke, discussing Luke 1:39-56 and Mary’s visit to Elizabeth.

In Peter Leithart’s A House For My Name, he says that the mosaic covenant comes to an end when the ark is taken by the philistines in 1 Samuel. Is this correct to say the covenant has ended? Or that the Lord undergoes the punishment so as to continue his covenant with them? It seems the prophets during the monarchical period assume the continued validity of the mosaic covenant. If you could provide clarification and correction that would be helpful.
Within this episode, I reflect upon the significance of the dimensions of Noah’s Ark.
One of my supporters has very kindly transcribed this video, the second of my series for the twelve days of Christmas. I don’t have time to transcribe my videos myself, so anyone willing to volunteer to transcribe one video every week or fortnight would be greatly appreciated! The transcript is very lightly edited at a few points for the purpose of comprehension.
Over the Christmas period, I will be posting videos exploring biblical echoes and symmetries in the stories of the nativity in the gospels. In this second video I discuss the connections between Luke’s gospel and the beginning of 1 Samuel.
