Scot McKnight at Jesus Creed highlights the vocabulary of deliverance in the Magnificat. As McKnight mentions in his book (see my previous post), Mary’s son sings a harmonic note of his own in his letter to the exiled twelve tribes:
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress . . . to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.* (James 1:27 NIV [modified])
*Note also my earlier post about the inclusion of “and” in the ellipsis above.
